Best Day Ever
We had to change our wedding plans due to COVID and ended up with a small wedding at the Balboa Yacht Club! It was truly the best day ever!!! BYC took such great care of us during the entire process! Sarah is the wedding coordinator and she is truly amazing! She went above and beyond to make sure our day was special, seamless, and everything we wanted!! Perry was fabulous helping us figure out our alcohol packages! The catering staff were all so nice, joyful and extremely helpful! The chef was very flexible and happy to accommodate our special requests and the food was amazing! My grandparents are still talking about the food!! The day was beautiful, fun, special, amazing and better than I could have imagined! 10/10 would recommend getting married at BYC!!Sent on 09/14/2020

Best Wedding Venue!!
Every girl dreams of their wedding day but who would ever think those dreams would be exceeded beyond your imagination, well in our case it was! Having our wedding and ceremony at Balboa Yacht Club (BYC)was one of the best decisions we made in the planning process! Together with our wedding planner, Kelsey Connelly and the catering department at BYC, our entire planning process from start to finish was so easy. We worked with Lori Baumann and Holly Weber from BYC, they are extremely organized, professional and responded almost immediately to every email and phone call we had along the way. They never tried to persuade us with decisions but were extremely helpful when we needed guidance or suggestion, like fresh shucked oysters and speciality smoked cocktails! We couldn’t have been happier with the BYC service and staff. During our tasting, we hand selected a menu fit for our palette and BYC delivered! Our guests boasted about the food including the amazing appetizers during cocktail hour which included, Petrossian Caviar, charcuterie and cheese display that was 52’ around the entire flagpole! Yes 52’ and all was designed and inspired by Lori and the culinary team. Balboa Yacht Club treats you like a 5 stars resort with a very personal feel! If you want the perfect venue, the friendliest staff, and the most incredible view I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND BYC!

When you get engaged, a huge overwhelming rush comes upon you. Where are you going to have the ceremony, reception, food, drinks, decor, color scheme, flowers, etc. When I started my journey on finding a venue for my reception, it took me a while to find the perfect one. It wasn't until I walked into the Balboa Yacht Club and met Israel and his wonderful staff that I knew I found the perfect place to have my wedding. The venue itself has gone through various updates which has been even more appealing. New carpet, remodeled bathrooms, new furniture, paint, windows, etc. The venue is absolutely perfect if you're looking for an intimate, romantic and memorable wedding. I had my ceremony at a nearby church and my cocktail hour and reception were at the BYC. I had 175 guests. Now, there's nothing like being right on the water. The BYC is the perfect set up for cocktail hour. We had high-top cocktail tables and low-top tables with umbrellas. The space is open where people can take pictures on the docks, etc. (just an all- around beautiful setting). Our reception was so incredible. I teared up when I first walked in before they brought the guests up. The best thing in my opinion that I did was decorate the (11) chandeliers with greenery. It made it that much more intimate and warm. Brides --- if you're looking for a venue with excellent, accommodating and professional service, it's at the BYC. Israel is who I worked with most and he always followed up with me in a timely manner and would always be willing to speak with me or my planner over the phone or schedule a time for me to come in and look around to get ideas. I had the most memorable and beautiful wedding and everything went off without a hitch. Absolutely nothing went wrong! It was perfect. I couldn't be more thankful, grateful, lucky and blessed to have chosen the BYC for my wedding venue. I had an overall wonderful experience.Sent on 07/19/2017

For any Bride and Groom reading this endorsement: I am Rev. Michael and I Officiate at all locations in Orange County. And one of my top five favorite locations to Officiate at is at the Balboa Yacht Club. Their staff are, without a doubt, the best, the most flexible, the most organized and the nicest coordinators to work with. I receive so many rave reviews from my couples not only regarding the way they handle the Ceremony but the reception as well. I would be remiss in not telling you to at least call the Balboa Yacht Club and investigate their offerings.
