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.
The guest suites are well-lit rooms with plenty of natural light. The cohesive, beautiful furniture and decor and wall paper make this resort one of the best looking bride and groom prep locations available.
For your first look and couples session, use one of the many hallways or choose the gorgeous staircases around the property. Everywhere you go, you’ll find an endless amount of photo opportunities.
The most iconic wedding ceremony site is the Aria Lawn with the Moroccan pavilion, as seen below. With the right vendors and creative team, you can turn this already incredible structure into a fairy tale wedding ceremony site.
If you’re looking for an indoor ceremony option, the Chapel, with the dark wooden ceilings and beautiful chandeliers, is a perfect backdrop for an indoor wedding.
The large reception ballrooms at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar can host up to 700 guests. See some of our favorite photos below.
