Things are changing at the Balboa Bay Club, even the name, as the property is now called the Balboa Bay Resort.

I liked the way it was/felt, it did have the feeling of an exclusive yacht club, and the view of multi million dollar yachts infront only helped, but for a lot of todays brides it was not what they were looking for and a lot of people thought it was an exclusive club and never considered it for their events. I will mention though, I think a lot of people don’t realise they have a large ballroom that still has lovely chandeliers in it, which you don’t get to see too often anymore in the more modern ballrooms, so that is one case where keeping the old is going to be a plus for some couples looking for that kind of elegance.

I did two weddings at the club this year. Both got married at churches and we did the cocktails/dinner/dance in the Commodore Room/Patio for both. I used the space a bit differently than the hotel normally saw people doing, and I was really pleased with how they turned out. They were great to work with and the food was excellent.

So what is changing going into 2014, the restaurant areas are all being updated, definately a more modern/contemporary feel and definately places you want to linger in after a great meal. They have turned a restaurant on the 2nd floor into banquet space, giving a wedding of 100 or less a wonderful view of the boats and Newport Harbor which for an evening wedding really gives the best of the harbor in daytime then enjoy the sunset and then the change in atmosphere once it’s all about the darkness and lights outside. They have a lovely ceremony site which has the yachts/water as your backdrop and they also have a beach/sand option dependent on day/times. Something I also found out that I think is really unique and fun, after the ceremony/photos are done, the B&G only or B&G with bridal party get to head out on the harbor in the resorts duffy boat drinking champagne and enjoying the time alone or fun of it, imagine if your photographer goes with you the photos they could get.

I can help you plan a great ceremony/reception or reception only at the new Balboa Bay Resort, so give me a call or email and we can get things started.

Till next time
