About

From Love Story to Life Story.

A wedding should be iconic, just like your love story. For over a century, Hotel del Coronado has hosted generations of newlyweds, and the friends and family who adore them, in an incomparable coastal setting.

Go California casual with your toes in the sand at an effortless beach ceremony. Or, channel the glamour of Old Hollywood under the breathtaking wood-domed ceilings and chandeliers of the Crown Room or Ocean Ballroom. With gorgeous beachfront lawns, tropical gardens, and oceanfront terraces to choose from, The Del is the perfect place for your dream wedding.

A Legendary Event.

Few places in California fulfill the dream of exchanging vows on the beach and having a reception in the sand with the ease The Del provides. Best of all, The Del’s private beach is one of the few places in California where you can host a reception right on the sand. Wow your guests with fireworks, host a concert on the beach, or relax with beach games and s’mores around a roaring bonfire. If you can dream it, our team can make it a reality.

A Destination for All.

Transform your wedding into the destination experience of a lifetime for your family and friends. From plush beach daybeds and private pool cabanas to spa parties and sunset sails, The Del has it all. And with the resort located just minutes from downtown San Diego, you can easily explore the local attractions and treat your friends to a round of golf, brewery tours, baseball games and more. Some weddings make memories, ours make history.

    We enjoyed every minute of our wedding at the Hotel Del Coronado. Gloria Thorpe, Catering Manager, was an extreme pleasure to work with. She made our dreams come true. She was really easy to work with and so friendly. Our complimentary rooms were amazing! The service was impeccable. Our reception couldn't have been more perfect!

    Getting married at the Hotel Del was amazing. By far, not the cheapest option, but the level of service, quality, and of course location, really made everything worth it.

    The hotel itself is beautiful, but beyond that, the hotel staff really went above and beyond. Our wedding food was beyond amazing- all of our guests commented on how good everything was. Being a foodie type couple, and pretty picky, it was important to me not to serve mediocre food, and I couldn't have been happier.

    Also, the staff did a great job. Everything was flawless, and dinner was served on time, seamlessly. I ordered three vegetarian dishes, that were ready and delivered to the appropriate people, and again, I was impressed by the quality of the vegetarian meals, and that they weren't just a throw away salad.

    Our wedding was fairly small- we had 30 guests- and the hotel had 3 other, giant weddings happening at the same time. Despite all of the other events, we never felt like our wedding mattered less, and the property is large enough that we never really saw the other wedding events. If you are considering Coronado for your wedding venue, I highly recommend checking out the Hotel Del.
