Why We Like This Place

“Living is easy in Ventura, California, a laid-back coastal town midway between the hectic Los Angeles scene and pricey Santa Barbara resorts. Ventura’s beaches are picturesque even when the morning fog swirls above the breakers; on its many sunny days, beachcombers can spy the Channel Islands— a necklace of atolls—etched on the horizon.

As the only beachfront hotel in Ventura, this Crowne Plaza provides everything you need for a beach wedding ceremony right on the powdery sand. Their event team will arrange white folding chairs beside the aisle, and set a ceremonial arch in front of the surf so that you can exchange vows just steps from the shore—a microphone and speaker are included, too. Afterwards, your photographer captures shots of the two of you walking off into a glorious sunset, while friends and family begin the party on the Lanai Patio, a private terrace that faces the sea. As twilight descends, everyone moves indoors for your reception.

The versatile San Miguel Ballroom is conveniently located right on the first floor, and can accommodate a party of 200 or be sectioned off for more intimate gatherings. Alternatively, take the elevator 12 stories up to the most spectacular ballroom in the county. The circular Top of the Harbor Ballroom looks out on a captivating panorama through floor-to-ceiling glass: the Ventura hills in one direction and the sinuous shoreline in the other. At twilight, wisps of mist play along the crashing waves; as night descends, the city lights and the illuminated Ventura pier vie with a star-filled indigo sky in a contest of sparkle. The ballroom’s contemporary styling, like the rest of the hotel, is both relaxed and confident and suits the soothing surroundings…

Every step of the way, the Crowne Plaza Ventura Beach will contribute to a scenic and stress-free wedding weekend.”
