California dreamin’ comes to life with ocean views, cuisine d’elegance and iconic imagery

CORONADO, Calif. (July, 2019) – Known for its stunning beachfront setting, architectural beauty and iconic skyline, Hotel del Coronado has welcomed brides, grooms, family and friends for one-of-a-kind nuptial experiences for more than 130 years. One of the world’s last remaining Victorian-era seaside destination resorts, The Del pairs its timeless elegance with year-round sunshine, glistening golden sands and balmy ocean breezes to make every wedding worthy of the history books.

Vista Terrace

In June 2019 The Del completed a renovation of Vista Terrace, a newly re-imagined outdoor space ideal for weddings and receptions for up to 900 people. Vista Walk, named for its elevated views of the ocean, The Del’s majestic Olympic-size swimming pool and ocean-front Sun Deck, offers 9,300 square feet of outdoor, garden-setting space, an unobstructed view of the hotel’s iconic red turret and a clear view of the Pacific Ocean and Coronado sunsets. In all, The Del offers nearly a dozen indoor and outdoor settings for celebrations throughout the 28-acre resort, including its own private beach.

“In the short time since the completion of this stunning outdoor San Diego wedding venue, Vista Walk has become incredibly popular among our brides and grooms,” said Melody Corvalan, assistant director of catering at The Del. “We encourage couples to come in for a tour of all our locations, which often book at least a year in advance.”

Extraordinary Culinary Creations

In addition to its scenic Southern California location and exquisite views, The Del features an abundance of unforgettable catering options and service styles, ranging from casual to elegant, overseen by The Del’s talented and passionate culinary team lead by Executive Chef Stefan Peroutka, and fifth-generation French Master Chef Patrick Ponsaty. From unique tray-passed hors d’oeuvres and craft cocktails to meticulously plated meals and lavish buffets featuring locally sourced ingredients, the award-winning culinary team tailors feasts fit for kings and queens and their guests. For the sweetest part, The Del’s pastry team creates show-stopping custom wedding cakes and pastry for every planned occasion.

Bespoke Bachelor and Bachelorette Parties

The best way to celebrate “you” before saying “I Do,” is here at The Del. Spa treatments at the resort tap mystic healing powers of the sea with seaweed and therapeutic sea salt treatments. VIP cabanas provide private areas for relaxation before the big day. For the more adventurous, surf lessons, boat rentals an aquatic adventures make for a day of fun. Private beach bonfires with s’mores and charcuterie, wine tasting, gourmet brunch spreads and more make for cherished memories among friends and families to last a lifetime.
