Newport Beach Weddings - on land or at sea

If you've been searching for a great location for your Newport Beach wedding, guess what? You're search is over. I have a few that you're going to love so much that you will end your search today!

Well, okay, maybe I'm getting a bit ahead of myself, but, I do think I have some ideas you'll like

Newport Beach Boat Weddings

Yes, I know I've written about boat weddings in California before. But, Newport Beach is loaded with yacht companies just aching for your wedding business. They usually offer "one-stop" shopping, meaning they'll coordinate everything. You just make a few decisions on what you want, show up, say "I do," eat some, toast some and dance some, and voila, you've had a great wedding on the water outside of Newport Beach that everyone will be talking about.

There are numerous charter companies, we're going to offer you three of them.

Pacific Avalon Yacht Charters

They offer three yachts, The Royal Princess (149 max. capacity), The Ambassador (150 max. capacity) and The Majestic (400 max. capacity). They provide everything you need, and will work with your suggestions, or, if you want some ideas, they will provide those as well. Call them at (949) 673-8545 for a complimentary consultation.

Legend Charters

Get married by the ship's Captain on a sunset cruise. For more information on what they offer, email them at

The Electric Riverboat Angela Louise
located at The Fun Zone on Balboa Peninsula
700 Edgewater Ave.
Newport Beach

While the other two wedding cruises are on yachts, this one's on a riverboat. How cool is that? They offer a one-hour wedding ceremony cruise for 30-70 passengers Sunday through Friday for $999, plus $100 docking fee. Includes the wedding ceremony performed by the Riverboat Captain, and a champagne toast for the bride and groom.
