We loved this venue. They were SO easy to work with, responsive and professional. The food was great and they were very flexible about working with us to create exactly the menu we wanted. They took care of all setting up and we literally just had to show up. I would do any wedding here again in a heartbeat.

We can't say enough about how wonderful it was to have our wedding at the California Yacht Club. Tiffani and Chelsea really helped us create a beautiful event. They worked with our budget and made suggestions about everything from vendors (we used so many of them!) to style. They let us lead the discussions, but Tiffani was so great at giving us alternatives and keeping us calm. They were also both on hand as our coordinators on the big day, which made things like deliveries, set up and the actual ceremony so much easier. The chef even made special meals to accommodate our handful of vegan guests (and he gave us an excellent recommendation for a place to visit on our honeymoon). The whole team made what could have been a very stressful event, a fun one. Andy and I have nothing but raves for the whole team. And if anyone needs a venue for any type of event, we will be sure to recommend the California Yacht Club.

I am so happy with the California Yacht Club as our wedding venue (4/21/2018). They worked with me on every request I made, and our wedding had a few unique quirks. They were professional, responsive and caring. They had great food (which I think is rare for weddings), and accommodated all our food requests. I initially worked with Tiffani who was clearly talented and organized, and she actually left the company 2 weeks before my wedding. I worked with Quin after Tiffani left, and she and I were in close contact as the wedding date approached. She made sure that all my final details were in place. I couldn't be happier! The backdrop of the yachts against our ceremony did NOT disappoint, and the photos that I have so far are stunning. Inside, there are large windows which showcased not only the yachts, but a beautiful pink sunset. Our friends and family all raved about it. The day itself went quite smoothly, and we worked with Andi for the day of. The staff are so friendly. I have no bad experiences from the big day. I have zero complaints actually, and am so happy with my choice to work with CYC for one of the most important events of my life! :)
Thank you thank you thank you!

Such a beautiful location for a wedding! The stunning views of the marina, sunsets and the bay are only surpassed by the amazing staff that can handle nearly any kind of event!
Before becoming a wedding officiant, I was a wedding planner. California Yacht Club is one of my favorite venues in Los Angeles county! The coordinators there are total professionals, responsible and lots of fun. They're so passionate about what they do and every person that I've sent that has booked with them has been so happy! Love this venue!!! As an officiant, it is a gorgeous setting with the marina and the boats in the background!
CYC is such a beautiful venue! We love working there. Plus the staff is so accommodating and are truly a pleasure to work with each time.
