About

On WeddingWire since 2009

The Dana Point Yacht Club is a marina in the Orange County, California area hosting weddings for couples who want a waterfront wedding venue. This private coastal venue is perfect for local or destination weddings, with an array of watercraft and a ballroom space overlooking the water. Couples will find this venue located in Dana Point Harbor, ten minutes from the San Juan Community Center.

Facilities and Capacity
This ballroom seats a maximum of 200 guests for a couple’s big day. The wedding ceremony can take place in the ballroom or on the Bayview Patio facing the water. This romantic waterfront space seats 90 guests for a wedding ceremony. A wooden rail supporting glass panels keep couples and guests safe while still offers views of the waves. Tan awnings help to shade guests as couples exchange vows under a bamboo pergola. The ballroom can host receptions or wedding ceremonies of up to 200 attendees. Large windows drop down to the floor to showcase the beautiful water views from this space. Shining dark hardwood glows in the natural light from the windows and the reflection of the overhead chandeliers. These light fixtures feature tiers of golden lights that hang from the cathedral ceiling. For ceremonies in this space, guests can move to the attached Commodore’s Patio for the cocktail reception.

Hidden gem, incredible venue, fantastic team!

We booked our wedding reception at the Dana Point Yacht Club and it was absolutely amazing. Not only is the venue gorgeous and the harbor background a unique and stunning view, the head event coordinator, Danielle is absolutely wonderful to work with. From the moment we first looked at the venue online, to emailing Danielle and setting an appointment, to touring the venue, phone calls, emails, the menu tasting, and everything in between, we were blown away. Danielle was fantastic throughout the entire process and we are so happy we chose the Yacht Club for our wedding reception. The day was perfect and it's all thanks to this incredible venue and people who work there. Danielle is easy to work with, timely in her responses and truly provides the best customer service. She answered all of our questions, big or small and accommodated my husband and I with our budget and vision. She made the wedding planning process easy and fun and worked seamlessly with our day-of wedding coordinator too. The Yacht Club really is a hidden gem and you can beat the "all inclusive" package options including; valet, gold chavari chairs, gold charger plates, champagne toast, cake cutting services, and the list goes on! Do yourself a favor and book your event here, you won't be disappointed!!

We've been to a few events that we have both worked as a photographer and attended as a vendor and guest. They do a great job! It's a great venue with beautiful views of the harbor. They have great indoor and outdoor spaces and there are so many pretty views for photos. The food is really great too. We highly recommend them for your wedding or event!
