    Hands down the Balboa Bay Resort is one of the most beautiful venues in the area. One look at their amazing ballroom and my husband and I were sold. Everything here is top notch from top to bottom and my husband and I could not be happier to have had our wedding here. It was everything we were looking for. Highly recommended!
