About Renaissance Newport Beach Weddings

Formerly known as the Fairmont, the Renaissance Hotel Newport Beach became a luxurious Marriott property in 2017. Shaped like a contemporary version of a Babylonian ziggurat temple with three sprawling terraced guest wings, The Renaissance Hotel stands out for its unique, otherworldly flare.  And with a rooftop pool, an 8,000 square-foot spa, rows of swaying palm trees, and over 30,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event spaces, the Renaissance Hotel Newport Beach is the perfect place for not only your wedding ceremony and reception, but to relax and prepare for your big day, and for your private moments like the couple’s photography session pictured below. We at Lin and Jirsa Wedding Photography would be honored to capture all of the moments of your big day.
