You must do your wedding here!

The Bel-Air Bay Club has a fabulous reputation, and after our wedding we know EXACTLY WHY! The club is the most special, wonderful event space / wedding venue you can possibly use in Southern California. Not only is the club and the views alone breathtaking, but every single person who works there is an absolute pleasure. I specifically worked with Jenny and Ashley - who are just unbelievable!!! Jenny helped me source my planner and truly helped guide me on my event when I knew nothing. And, Ashley was our partner throughout the entire process ensuring every detail was perfect. The club is just full of pros, and not to mention the INCREDIBLE FOOD!!!! This place is just top notch!!!!

The Wedding Of Our Dreams

My wife and I could not not have imagined our wedding be at any venue other than the Bel Air Bay Club. As you can see from their pictures, the entire property is gorgeous and well maintained. Every staff member there was not only courteous to us, but to all of our guests. Our events coordinating manager Ashley was on top of every detail. She was attentive to all of our needs and changes and she helped keep us on schedule and always followed up on our requests. We were in absolute great hands with her. From day one we knew that we had made the right decision. Amongst the many reasons why we enjoyed BABC, here are a few:
The venue photographs extremely well.
All of the vendors we used LOVE working there and have been there before.
The property is very versatile (and spacious) and can accommodate various types of setups.
They have most of the things you need on the wedding day, between dance floor to dinnerware to chairs, etc.
The option to stay in one of their rooms is a real bonus that we would highly recommend.
The food and catering is top notch. We were told by several of our guests that the buffet spread we had was the best wedding food they’ve ever had.
They do MANY weddings per year, so they know exactly what they are doing. They are like a well oiled machine.
And, of course, the view is perfect.
We can’t say enough nice things about this place. The only drawback is that so many other people feel this way that you will have to book well in advance.

BABC - Do your wedding here!

From the start, the planning staff was well prepared and offered some really good information to help with the planning. There are a good number of options with selecting location, food, amenities, etc. The day of: We had a dedicated room for the bride's group to do hair/make-up and another room for the groomsmen to get dressed. The location of the altar was setup on the lawn with option of facing Santa Monica, the ocean, or Malibu (we did Malibu). BABC offers light food and your choice of beverages for getting ready. We selected the fireplace room to hold the reception with three long tables and we sat separately at a table at the head of the middle table. The place settings were gorgeous, the wait staff was efficient, helpful, friendly during the multicourse meal. We used the courtyard for both the self-service food stations and also two fully stocked bars. For 125 ppl we didn't have to wait for anything more than a minute or two. The views of the ocean from the dining room was spectacular. We highly recommend this venue over the other ten we visited - and we are so happy we did. Note 1 - We had the wedding on a Thursday as opposed to a weekend (a much better value if you're looking to save a little $$). Note 2 - For transportation, we had multiple 38 seat buses and one 56 seat bus. They say that larger buses can't maneuver up the narrow road and beneath the tree canopy.

Having had the pleasure of working on at least one wedding (and other events) at the legendary Bel-Air Bay Club, I have nothing but praise for this venue. With true Million Dollar views and constant renovations to enhance the client experience, the Bel-Air Bay Club is nothing short of a suburb location with a great people from their Chef & Catering Team to their waitstaff and grounds keepers. Highly recommended.
