Fresh-cut flowers, tables covered in white linen, and sparkling chandeliers set the scene for grand affairs in our awe-inspiring Pacific Ballroom. Toast to this momentous occasion with a cocktail reception in the Pacific Promenade—a “Hall of Mirrors”-inspired space that is also a perfect backdrop for wedding photography—or step out onto the Juliette balcony to hear the crashing ocean waves. Outside, discover beautiful backdrops dotted around the resort, including our lush Botanical Garden; our bright and airy Grand Lawn; or our secluded, semi-intimate Pacific Lawn.
