Long Beach has a lot going for it – but when it comes to planning your wedding, one of our favorite parts of this place is its proximity to all of the options the greater Los Angeles area has to offer, plus a view of the ocean. Certainly we want to keep our focus local with Long Beach wedding venues and wedding photographers in Long Beach, but don’t forget that you’ve got all of this metropolitan area within your reach.

Long Beach Wedding Venues

Let’s start with a Long Beach icon – the Queen Mary herself. From classic ballrooms to a charming wedding chapel, the settings on the Queen Mary are timeless choices for any wedding planning couple to make. Ceremonies on the Sun Deck Gazebo or Verandah Deck have views of the ocean, and the 17 ballrooms are each uniquely appointed with 1930s glamour.

Parkers' Lighthouse is another romantic Long Beach venue with ocean views. Rising three levels above the Long Beach harbor, the location boasts open views from each and every table, and is known for its excellent seafood and brand new wine cellar. The lighthouse makes serving you and your guests on your wedding day a priority, and is also ideal for wedding events from engagement parties to rehearsal dinners.

P.S. Don’t forget to use the best planning tools around – our wedding websites are perfect for communicating with your guests and sharing the details of your wedding day and registry.
