    No words to describe how amazing this venue is. Worth every penny!

    Thank you so much for an amazing event. I'm truly amazed how smoothly the day went. I worked with Liz Pham and she is so amazing. I was planning my wedding while balancing work and nursing school and she made it happen. She helped me through it all and didn’t mind my crazy schedule. She’s flexible and on point! Im glad I decided to go for it and get married at this venue. No regrets whatsoever. Thanks to Liz, my wedding coordinator, and BABC my family was able to enjoy the wedding and have an amazing time. Thank you so so much!

    An absolute dream.

    Bel Air Bay Club is fully worth it; if you are able to afford and reserve a date with them, do it!

    Because of the outstanding level of service this venue provides, we did not need to hire Day-of Coordinator. They will not fill the role of a full wedding planner (hiring external vendors, creating color schemes, event design, etc), but you just let them guide you to create a timeline, layout, and menu, hand them your list of vendor contact information, and they will handle all vendors and coordination on the day-of. Our wonderful Special Events Coordinators Gabriella and Esmeralda fully handled and recorded every weird request we had and helped guide us through the process up until the day-of, and the onsite coordinator Sophie + her assistant worked with us and our external vendors on the day-of.

    Jenny guided us through their pricing structure, and there were no hidden fees whatsoever, everything was upfront. They provide extensive documentation to clarify what they do and don't do, any options you'd like to add on, and they are also very responsive to any questions.

    They were extremely flexible, even when we had last-minute requests due to Covid (changing the whole layout, seating arrangements, even switched out a guest who cancelled with another guest who asked last minute if she could come). Everything went off without a hitch, we were totally relaxed without a worry on our special day and the staff handled everything.

    They even provided a wonderful bridal attendant Maria who helped so much, carrying my veil and train so they didn't get messed up for photos, bringing me drinks, and taking tons and tons of photos throughout the day which was a wonderful supplement to what our photographers were able to capture. She's an absolute gem.

    The venue is so beautiful that (in my opinion) it does not need much decoration if you would like to be budget conscious in that regard. Just something on the ceremony arch and some centerpieces are all that's necessary.

    The wait staff were extremely efficient and made sure everyone got their meals in a timely manner. All the food was delicious, nothing was disappointing. It was served at the perfect temperature, it was all very flavorful, and none of the steak or fish was overcooked (very impressive, I've never been to a large event where everything was cooked perfectly). We chose to serve raw oysters during appetizers and they were extremely fresh and delicious. The cocktails were perfect as well. My now-husband and I are pretty critical of how food is cooked usually and it fully exceeded our expectations in a delightful way.

    Guests made so many comments on how amazing the food and drinks were, how insanely beautiful the view & venue were, how "you guys really know how to throw a party". Our families were simply blown away, they'd never been to a wedding where the family could just sit and relax, especially with that kind of view.

    It was truly the best wedding we'd ever been to. We are realists; we weren't necessarily looking to create a "dream wedding;" we just wanted to put together an event that we ourselves would remember and enjoy attending as guests; but an absolute 100% DREAM WEDDING is what we experienced with the guidance and support from the wonderful staff.

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.
