Located just 800 feet from the shimmery Southern California sands, Cardiff by the Sea Hotel is the perfect location for your small beachside wedding. Ideal for those who want the laid-back feel of sand between their toes but would prefer to avoid the flurries of wind and weather, the Cardiff Hotel offers a unique venue unparalleled in its beauty and location. Our second-story Rooftop Garden is beautifully designed to ensure that each aspect of your wedding is polished and planned, with several oceanfront decks connected by flower-lined walkways. A winding staircase provides a perfect entrance for the bride, while a raised deck and lowered walls showcase an incredible panoramic ocean view for the most romantic of backgrounds and photographs. Stations for buffets, cakes, guest book, and other favors make mingling a breeze, with plenty of room for a band or dancing the day away! With a maximum capacity of 85 guests, the rooftop comfortably holds 50 to 60 people, the ideal size for all your closest friends and family. Caterers, DJs, florists, and other vendors are completely at your discretion, so feel free to create your special day exactly as you have always dreamed it. If you are looking for that someplace special on your wedding day, or if you have been searching for that unique reception occasion with a view, then look no further. The Cardiff Hotel's Rooftop Garden is the perfect combination of beachfront beauty and elevated elegance.
