There are few places to begin your journey together that are more beautiful than Terranea Resort. Located a short distance from Los Angeles, along the picturesque California coast, Terranea provides an ideal, romantic backdrop for your celebration.

With 60,000 square feet of indoor venues and 75,000 square feet of outdoor space, Terranea can accommodate any party, from intimate gatherings to grand galas of more than 1,800 people. Our premiere indoor venue, the Catalina Room, provides a truly unforgettable experience. From the grand staircase for the bride’s dramatic entrance to the enchanting terrace with breathtaking ocean views, this is the place for fairy tale weddings.

If you pictured your “happily ever after” starting with an outdoor celebration, our extensive and well-manicured grounds have everything you need. From a lush lawn to gorgeous gardens, from “The Meadows” to a bluff-top oceanfront gazebo, our outdoor venues are stunning. A once-in-a-lifetime event deserves a special setting, and when you watch the sunset reflecting on the ocean, golden shimmers mirroring the champagne bubbles in you glass, you’ll know that there is no place like Terranea to celebrate love.

Not just a hotel, but a luxurious destination, Terranea Resort includes pools, restaurants, lounges, fitness facilities, a world-class spa, and an array other services and amenities. Out of town guests will enjoy plush accommodations in one of our 582 warm, spacious guestrooms. The appreciation of the surrounding natural beauty and the attention to detail that characterize every aspect of the resort are apparent in each room. Your guests will enjoy the commodious, peaceful rooms after a festive day. The most jovial members of the wedding party, the bride and groom, receive complimentary wedding night accommodations.

Our professional planning and catering staff will work with you to plan every detail of your day. When it comes time to walk down the aisle and celebrate with your loved ones, you will be able to appreciate each moment without worrying because we will make sure every detail is perfectly executed. Terranea even provides a dedicated butler to assist the bride and groom.

Whatever your dream wedding, we’ll make it come true. Read less

We searched high and low for the perfect venue for our destination wedding, and Terranea was everything we were looking for. The event and catering staff that I worked with were tirelessly attentive to my questions and emails, and were very accommodating to help us achieve our vision for the day. Jennifer and Lindsey were so wonderful to work with, and from long distance! Terranea itself is breathtaking....the staff are remarkable - they really made me feel special as a bride. The valets even knew I was getting married there in a few days and remarked things like "almost your wedding day!" every time I saw them. It's a pretty pricey place, but the room block rates made it more affordable for my guests, who had a wonderful few days of spoiling themselves in paradise. My only complaint is that my perfect wedding day was over too soon.

Terranea was a lovely venue for our wedding! Catalina Point was a breathtaking place for our ceremony and the Catalina lawn and ballroom were perfect for the cocktail hour and reception. Of course the view was gorgeous for our ceremony, the rooms were fantastic, and the food was delicious. All our guests raved about how much they loved staying at Terranea.

But more importantly, Gina Knight and Leslie McCammon were AMAZING to work with. Leslie helped us in the initial stages of booking the venue and really worked with our budget. Gina helped us finalize the catering, including the menu, linens, table set-up. They were both really pleasant to work with, very responsive, always worked hard to meet our needs and made us feel taken care of.

Our only problem with Terranea was that organizing the room block for our guests became a huge headache. The person we worked with was unresponsive by e-mail and did not follow through on things. The biggest problem was that once we set-up the room block it quickly filled up but no one gave us a heads up about this. And when we called to expand the block, we were told that there were no more rooms available. So we were in a real panic to try and figure out how to accommodate our guests. We ultimately had to refer our guests to another hotel, but the closest hotel was 20 mins away from Terranea.

All in all, we absolutely loved having our wedding at Terranea and are so grateful for all the great memories and beautiful photos!

Some women start dreaming about their perfect wedding the minute a ring is placed on their engagement finger. Others, as myself, begin dreaming about their wedding since they were little girls. Being from Arizona, and not having any beaches out there, having a wedding somewhere affordable and outside of California (our closest state with beaches) was not an option. And seeing Terranea Resort for the first time and knowing that dream wedding could finally come to life there, didn't give me many options to have it anywhere else either. Terranea has all the components every bride dreams of. A perfect place with the perfect view, professional and very pleasent staff, and to make matters worst, and esquisite chef that will amke every single one of your guests' mouth water upon tasting the food you decided to go with for your wedding dinner.
Not many poeple can say that everything in their wedding went perfect, but I can, because it truly did. Nickole amde sure my wedding was as stress free as possible by making sure everything went exactly the way i wanted it to be. It was a dream come true and very blessed that we decided to choose their venue to put into action everything we always wished and hoped for!

I did not have my wedding at the Terranea Resort but got ready there. My wedding was at a golf course near by but I've always been in love with the Terranea, so I knew I had to do something there for my big day. We had rooms there on the night before my wedding and, of course, for our honeymoon suite for the night of the wedding. But, we knew we couldn't check in the second room in time for getting ready. So the wonderful sales staff had a great suggestion: try our hospitality suite.

Thus we booked the gorgeous San Nicholas suite. The room has wall to wall windows facing southeast which allows for a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean - what Terranea is infamous for. The San Nicholas room has two sofas, a kitchen, one bathroom and one dining table. It was the PERFECT amount of space for me, my hair/makeup stylist, five bridesmaids, two junior stylists, one photographer and two videographers! Not to mention a mother of a bridesmaid and her baby. Long story short - a full house.

I highly recommend the room if you have a huge entourage for your big day. After getting ready we were able to leave our belongings in there while photographing around the stunning resort.

Overall, views and service built for royalty!

Terranea is the most beautiful venue and getting married there was a dream come true. The only problem we had with them is when our catering manager quit about 2 months before our wedding and for some reason the notes she had made regarding what we wanted/did not want were not transferred to the new catering manager.
