The Fairmont Grand Del Mar is located in the Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve in San Diego, away from the hustle and bustle of the city.  The style of the architecture resembles a Mediterranean estate, with over 20,000 square feet of available space for your wedding.

This is one of the largest venues, with many options for your wedding ceremony and reception.  You can opt for the iconic Aria Lawn with the Moroccan pavilion, one of their most popular wedding ceremony sites.  Or you can choose one of the many other options, like the Manchester Salon and Terrace, Elizabeth Ballroom, the Capella chapel or the Reflection Lawn.   For your reception, you can entertain with your loved ones in the large, decadent ballrooms or host a smaller gathering in the intimate private dining rooms.

With so many options, this is truly one of the best wedding venues in San Diego County and beyond.
