About

Expect a blend of modern elegance and ocean-inspired luxury when you host your wedding at this Laguna Beach resort. We give couples the option to exchange vows in one of three outdoor venues by the beach, each offering sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean, and then continue their celebration in an indoor venue where large windows maintain the breathtaking vistas. In keeping with the open spirit of the Dana Point community, the hotel welcomes weddings of all faiths and cultures. Our staff also has experience serving kosher and Indian celebrations. Work with our in-house culinary team and pastry chef in Laguna Niguel to create a custom menu that complements your wedding theme. The resort now proudly offers an on-site chef-driven culinary program dedicated to Indian weddings, balancing artistic plated meals with family-style selections, buffets, and customized menus. Helmed by Chef de Cuisine and New Delhi-native Sanjay Rawat, guests can expect an authentic-meets-modern regional Indian menu.

    Magical Wedding Venue with the best event team - Michele!

    . Michele made what was the Best day I could ever have asked for! Where to even begin - from the moment I decided on the venue (back in 2018…pandemic wedding timeframe) I was truly in awe of the professionalism every member at Engaged Events demonstrated. To say the planning service was perfect would be an understatement - every concern, question or hesitation was anticipated by their remarkable wedding team to the point where I was being given information on a topic or area of the wedding planning that I hadn’t even known I was worried about! They prepared for my every need and Candace was patient through every one of my OCD freak outs! ! I am grateful to have been able to experience my magical and perfect dream day with the ladies of this establishment. Candace is truly a world class wedding planning and human being. Thank you for creating perfection every single moment of my day!

    I don't think I need to say too much about how nice this venue is. It's The Ritz-Carlton. It's on the ocean. It's in Dana Point. It was the nicest venue we could find, and our guests certainly appreciated it. Carly was our contact person for our event coordination and she was wonderful. Always available and answered questions promptly. Our room block was quite reasonably priced and Lisa was so helpful. They also have special rates at Monarch Beach Golf Links, so I was able to host a groomsmen round Friday of the weekend.

    Other reasons why this is a wonderful choice: 1) It's a good excuse to keep coming back annually for your anniversary
    2) They keep the same cake recipe's, so instead of freezing wedding cake to eat sometime down the road, just come back, and get another slice!
    3) You get a ton of Marriot/Starwood Preferred Guest/Ritz-Carlton points. (basically enough for a nice stay somewhere nice!
    Everyone wants to believe their wedding was the best, and we are certainly in that category. We owe a lot of that to the Ritz!
