If you’ve longed for a beachfront wedding, whether barefoot in a strappy sundress or elegant and traditional with the roaring ocean in the background, Shutters on the Beach is the perfect spot to make your dreams come true. A charming hotel getaway right on Santa Monica Beach, this venue will give you every luxury you’ve longed for with the natural wonder of the Pacific Ocean right in your backyard.
Shutters allows you and your guests to book any of the hotel’s 186 guestrooms and/or 12 suites to stay overnight right on the premises, or to relax, get ready, and soak in the grandeur of the day ahead together with your bridesmaids or groomsmen. Shutters’ charming Cape-Cod-style architecture gives the hotel its name: each room and suite has a sliding shuttered door that opens to a balcony with a beachfront view. Suites also include marble bathrooms with a view, stone fireplaces lined with handcrafted tiles, and wood flooring covered with sumptuous, snuggly rugs. You and your bridal party can even take advantage of the hotel’s world-class ONE Spa, and make friendship memories while being pampered, just before tying the knot.
With a tranquil blue pool in the hotel’s courtyard framed by idyllic midcentury cabanas, the rolling waves of the Pacific only steps away, the iconic Santa Monica Pier a nine-minute stroll from the hotel, and the surfers and roller skaters from Venice Beach just up the road, Shutters on the Beach has plenty of spaces for memorable photo ops, all emblematic of the beauty of Southern California.
We at Lin and Jirsa Wedding Photography would be honored to capture each moment of your monumental day and craft the photo heirlooms that you’ll treasure for the rest of your lives. Click here to learn why it merits choosing one company to provide for both your photography and videography needs.
That beachfront ceremony is what a Shutters on the Beach wedding is all about. Walking down not the aisle, but the driftwood pier, as the sun sets over the cold Pacific, is the quintessential image of California’s carefree, happy vibe. Saying your vows in this otherworldly place will set the tone for an optimistic, adventurous marriage.
Shutters has a number of options where you can dine, toast, and dance the night away with the people you care about most in the world. The Grand Salon, with its floor-to-ceiling marble fireplace and Venetian chandeliers, is the space that can house the most guests. Both the Promenade Room and the Beachside Room have oceanfront views and exits to the beach. If you’re planning an intimate micro-wedding, the Oceanside Room and Private Dining Room can each house under 30 guests. Or you can plan an outdoor reception on the Pacific Terrace and never have to escape the majesty of the beach.
And when all the celebrating is ending, be sure to memorialize your wedding day with the whimsical lights of the Santa Monica Pier in the background.
