What We Love About the Ritz-Carlton Marina del Rey

With its elegant decor and lavish venues, the Ritz-Carlton Marina del Rey is always a gorgeous location for wedding photos. Whether you’re planning a grand affair or an intimate gathering,  the Ritz-Carlton is ready to make your dream wedding a reality. We love photographing our clients here as their beautiful views of the marina and immaculately manicured lawns truly give each and every image a picturesque aesthetic.

Wedding Preparation at the Ritz-Carlton Marina del Rey

One of the advantages of planning a resort hotel wedding is that you can book a block of rooms for out-of-town guests to stay only steps away from the spot where you’ll tie the knot. You’ll also have the opportunity to book an onsite suite for wedding prep, so that you and your bridal party can spend the morning relaxing, being pampered, and making memories together before the big moment. This hotel has multiple types of suites, the 500-square-foot Junior Suite, the 700-square-foot Executive Suite, or for large wedding parties, the 1500-square-foot Ritz Cartlon Suite, which will give you all the space you need spread out an enjoy the day. All suites feature panoramic views of the marina and understated modern decor in serene ocean hues with pops of coral.
