Book this vendor if you want an impeccable ballroom, beautifully done with excellent staff. If you do not plan to spend much on decor, this ballroom has the most value because the room needs so little to be done to it to make it ready!

However, do note that they are particular about what you do to the ballroom (no bolting to the ceiling). If you plan to dangle something from above it will be a challenge for your florist/designers to make something from scratch for you. That being said the staff is ready to serve at your every whim, if you can pay the pretty penny.
Do note that when they give you a price for additionals, do make sure to account for percentage tax in Santa Monica, and the service tax.

All in all, a beautiful beautiful place. My guests still are talking about the time we had...

This was my dream venue and I can assure you I was not disappointed! Possibly the best part was that they brought us out the hors d'oeuvres when we were doing the photos during the cocktail hour! I was so pleased because I was concerned I'd miss them and they were delicious! It was a gorgeous place and the service was top notch. Everyone was friendly and excited and so many of the guests said it was the best wedding food they've ever had! And you can't beat the location - it was ideal to be right at the beach in the ballroom, but not have to worry about the elements of an outdoor wedding. In addition, you know you're getting the venue's full attention because there's only the one ballroom and therefore only one wedding going on at a time. We were very well taken care of!

Working with Alessandra Apoian during the planning process and the team at Casa Del Mar on the day of my son's wedding was a great experience. Alessandra was responsive, professional and an extremely pleasant person. The wrap up and finalizing of details after the event went smoothly as well.
I would highly recommend Casa Del Mar as a wedding venue as the location is so beautiful.
Thanks Alessandra, Kathleen, the room block team and the entire staff at Casa Del Mar!

Absolutely beautiful venue. Best value out of all the luxury hotels in the Los Angeles area. Slow to respond at times and I felt like I was mainly the one to initiate contact and schedule meetings and tastings, whereas it would have been nice if they provided a timeline of when to do things. The reception and cocktail hour were perfect! Food is the best I've ever had at a wedding.

I am originally from the East Coast, now permanently living in the West LA area. When I first moved to the area, one of the first places my now-new-hubby took me to visit was Santa Monica Pier.. because I absolutely love the beach, the sun.. the soft sand.. and well, just sitting out there.. baking. To top it off, the Pier is gorgeous!

So when it came time to deciding our venue, it was a no brainer. Santa Monica. When it came down to the exact location, we decided to visit all the venues. I personally, fell in L-O-V-E with the Colonnade ballroom at Casa del Mar. It is soooo romantic and chandeliers are soo elegant, the room needs very little decoration. It was as if it was out of a dream. and one thing came to my mind... MY WEDDING PHOTOS ARE GOING TO BE AWESOME.... this sealed the deal.

I met with Toby the events manager, and he was very helpful! I even remember giving him a hug at the end of the tour when we first met, because there was such relief to FINALLY FINDING THE VENUE! I think he laughed at me, the crazy bride, and welcomed me with open arms.

The day of the wedding, the event went off without a hitch! The hotel provided the catering-- including food/alcohol-- and it was amazing! The food was delicious, the staff was so gracious and professional.

I was so happy this venue, I would recommend this location to any bride! Worth every penny!!

If you're looking for a seamless wedding planning experience, I highly recommend Casa Del Mar. After signing our contract, our first catering manager was Michael. Michael was fantastic-accomodating, savvy, and funny. We were concerned when Michael left before our wedding that things might not go as well due to his departure. Luckily, we were quickly assigned a new manager-Toby (Director of Catering). Toby was awesome to work with as well and made sure that all his i's were dotted and t's were crossed so that the items we discussed with Michael were explicitly documented and delivered the day of. After meeting with Toby, I knew all pieces of our wedding relating to Casa Del Mar would be handled professionally and they were. Many of our guests commented that this was the best wedding they've ever been to and complimented the fine service they received from Casa Del Mar's catering staff.

My favorite thing about Casa Del Mar in relation to other venues we looked at is their package deal. The package is inclusive of tax, service, bar, and even a cake. This made budgeting so much easier-we did not have to worry about being nickel and dimed and charged for every little item. With the package, it was easy to predict what our venue related expenses would be.

Of course, the other huge advantage of Casa Del Mar is the location. It is unparalleled in LA. Many of our guests were from the East Coast, so providing them with a fun location for the wedding weekend was very important to us.

Having our wedding at Casa del Mar was a no-brainer! It's a gorgeous hotel, with a stunning ballroom, right on the beach. Toby Lent was an amazing coordinator (he has since left CDM) and he and the Casa del Mar team made us feel like a million bucks on our wedding day. Five-star customer service that is simply unbeatable.

Thank you Casa del Mar, for being the perfect wedding venue.
