What We Love About the Bel-Air Bay Club

When it comes to selecting their wedding venue, many of our clients choose the Bel-Air Bay Club, and we can see why! Not only is the whole location simply picture-perfect, with the entire wedding venue perched high above the California cliffs in Pacific Palisades and overlooking the Pacific Ocean, their impeccably designed and maintained grounds leave nothing to be desired when it comes to elegant backdrops for everything, from candid wedding ceremony shots to couple session photos.

Wedding Prep at Bel Air Bay Club

Use of a bridal and groom’s suite is included in your wedding package, which means the bride and her bridesmaids can arrive four hours prior to the wedding and relax, prepare, and take in the glorious day to come. The groom and groomsmen can likewise arrive two hours ahead of time to dress or just enjoy one another’s company. What’s more, this venue has nine onsite rooms available for rent, so out-of-town wedding guests can stay just steps away from your wedding ceremony. Or the bride and groom can rent a room and not have to fuss about travelling to or from the venue.

The Bel-Air Bay Club has plenty of spaces for lovely photo ops, and a couple’s session is the perfect way to take a few intimate moments together away from all of the celebration and make a few memories with just the two of you. With 180-degree views of the Pacific Ocean, sunset photos on manicured laws among swaying palm trees are particularly romantic. Or you can take advantage of the club’s 1920’s-style Mediterranean architecture and take photographs on its sweeping staircases or before its grand concrete balusters.
