Located in Avila Beach, California, the Point San Luis Lighthouse lies on 30 acres located across the bay near the town of Avila. Guests will park at Port San Luis and take our vans to the Lighthouse. Once at the site there are sweeping views of San Luis Bay, a historic Lighthouse to explore, and other buildings and property to enjoy.

The property can accomodate up to 100 people for a ceremony. For dinner we can accomodate 100 for outdoor seating, and 50 for indoor seating. There is also a smaller historic building that can be used for more intimate weddings or as a indoor bar or desert room for larger weddings.

You will not be disappointed!

We recently had our wedding ceremony at San Luis Point Lighthouse and it was amazing! The entire planning process was smooth. Deb Foughty was extremely responsive, accommodating and helpful. By the day of the event, I felt confident that it was going to be perfect. Our guested were amazed as we drove up the windy hill to get to the lighthouse, with the expansive views. The ceremony site is on a second tier of the property and looks out to the ocean like an infinity pool. I cannot say enough good things about the location as well as Deb.

Love! The Point San Luis Lighthouse was the perfect venue for our ceremony and reception for our small 18 person family wedding.
We had our wedding in January so were thrilled that the venue had beautiful indoor as well as outdoor locations all with stunning views.
The historic venue gives you the feeling of being surrounded by nature but with all the modern conveniences of running water, electricity and a kitchen etc.
Our guests ranged from 3 to 94 and the venue had something for everyone. The venue is handicap accessible which was great for my grandma. They had wheelchair onsite and a docent even helped her in and out the trolley! The kids had plenty of space to run around. And everyone enjoyed the views, lighthouse and swing
For such a small wedding, the lighthouse had all the chairs, tables, linens, glasses, plates etc that we needed! They even set everything up, which made planning easy and stress free.
Deb from the Lighthouse was a pleasure to work with and made sure our dream wedding happened! She even checked in with me a couple days before the wedding to see if there were any changes to our plan. Deb is excellent with little details! Thank you Deb. She also came up with a tasty spread of appetizers for our reception. She was flexible to create a menu which included many delicious options for our vegetarian family members.
To top it all off, the lighthouse has so many wonderful docents volunteering for them that also helped out on our wedding day, giving the lighthouse tour and just helping out where needed. Everyone was so warm and friendly and really excited about our wedding! We could not have asked for more.

There truly isn't a more beautiful place to be married. We're so happy to have found the lighthouse and have made it the location of our perfect day. Kristi, the coordinator and ED of the lighthouse, is excellent and all our guests had their breath taken away as soon as they arrived. We had a small (70 person wedding) and the size of the site couldn't have been more perfect. Note that there are some extra tricky logistics in getting up and down to the private site via private road. But SO worth it. And it made us feel even better that our site fee went directly to support such an amazing historical site.
