California Yacht Club Photographer
Wedding ceremonies and wedding receptions at this venue are typically events held near the water the marina and boast a grand view of the harbor. In addition to the exterior opportunities for wedding photos, the club itself presents a large fireplace, sweeping staircase, and several outdoor terraces.
Founded in 1922, the California Yacht Club has more than 1,200 members and is a big part of the local sailing and regatta community. And although the CYC is typically a members-only location, it can also be hired as a Marina del Rey wedding venue. Brides and grooms can select from receptions inside in the Fireside room or outside under the stars or under a large tented area.
As a local photographer who has a deep interest in maritime history, I'm always happy to photograph weddings and receptions at the California Yacht Club, a club that boasts members sailing in every major regatta in the world and with a membership that includes Olympic sailing champions.
