Unforgettable wedding venue! We wanted a beach-themed wedding and the moment we saw the Balboa Bay Resort, we fell in love with the venue and knew it was exactly what we wanted. We had our ceremony on the Bayfront lawn parallel to the bay, which has an absolutely amazing view! The reception was in the Commodore Room which has large doors that open to a patio with a great view of the bay. The appetizers during the cocktail hour and meals during the reception were outstanding! Our experience working with the BBR over about 10 months was seamless and stress-free, mostly due to the fabulous event coordinator, Allison Sparkman. Allison is extremely sweet and easy to work with. She is easy-going and happy to answer any questions throughout the process. She also worked well with our day-of wedding coordinator to make sure everything was taken care of and ran smoothly. The BBR is very lucky to have such a dedicated employee – who truly cares about making your event memorable and special. We could not have been happier with our wedding at the Balboa Bay Resort and would definitely recommend this venue to other brides and grooms!

Allison Sparkman was so helpful and accommodating during the planning process and the days before and day of the wedding. She helped the bride and groom pick out their own unique menu. She always able to grant special requests like early check-ins and early drop-off of decorations for the wedding. Allison was always cheerful and pleasant to be around. What an asset Allison is for the Balboa Bay Resort!

This is the PERFECT venue for a nautical/beach wedding. We absolutely loved the location- it was right on the bay surrounded by gorgeous yachts and seascape. Throughout the planning process, Allison was extremely quick to respond and worked seamlessly with our planner to make our day perfect. Allison worked hard to accommodate all of our special requests and was nothing but helpful and professional in coordinating everything for us. I was blown away by the food selections and the quality and presentation of the dinner options. All of the vendor recommendations were outstanding and we used several recommendations from the resort.

I cannot say enough about the Balboa Bay Club & Resort, it is the perfect location for a Southern California wedding. The "casual elegance" of the resort is wonderful, the food is truly incredible (our guests raved and raved about the food) and the service from the entire staff is impeccable. Allison Varela in particular went above and beyond to ensure that every detail was attended to and executed perfectly, she is amazing! The setting of the resort was so romantic, with the boats & the bay right next to us during our ceremony, and then the sun setting during the outdoor cocktail hour which was gorgeous. The Bayfront Lawn is more private and has a lovely garden feel, and the Commodore room has windows that look out to the bay and open up to a patio which made for a wonderful spot for the cocktail hour and for the bar during the reception. We could not have been happier with the venue and the staff, so check them out if you are looking for a romantic & elegant wedding on the water.

HOTEL STAY: My husband and I stayed here for our first night of our honeymoon and it was a WOW!!!! When you arrive at night, there are about a MILLION twinkling lights all over the hotel's exterior to greet you! There were very pleasant bell boys outside to help us out of the car with our suitcases, and be excited with us! The service was wonderful. The front desk let us know about the room service, the live band and dancing happening downstairs (although we were too tired at that point!!), and showed us where our suite was. It was absolutely huge and gorgeous. They really took care of us and for a fabulous price!! We had two balconies overlooking the marina, a full living room, 2 flat screen TV's, a foyer, a dining table complete with champagne, fresh fruit & cheeses, a canopy bed turned down with chocolates......a beautiful vanity for me in the bathroom, a jacuzzi tub and separate shower...his and her sinks....the list goes on and on! It was a magnificent place to stay, and I would recommend it to all, even my very best friend! :) Book in advance and worry no more!
