Hotel Del Center Courtyard Wedding
If you’re going to have a medium sized wedding at the Hotel Del Coronado then you have the option of having your wedding ceremony at the vista walk area which is next to the grande ballroom, or you can also have the ceremony in the center courtyard. In case you’ve never been there, the huge hotel is actually shaped like a rectangular ring with a center courtyard, so if you want a private wedding then the most private ceremony site at the hotel would be in the courtyard.
Our couple got ready there at the hotel to keep things simple, we like keeping things simple right?! Their ceremony was before their friends and family at the Hotel Del Coronado in the center courtyard with the family photos done immediately afterward. Personally, I really enjoy photograaphing weddings in the courtyard at the Hotel Del since it is so private, I don’t have to worry about guests and tourists walking in the background of my photos. The worste spot for tourists in the background would be on the beach in front of the Hotel Del.
The fun and romantic photos were done there at the Hotel Del, and we even managed to have nice romntic sunset to photograph.
Their reception was held in one the the smaller ballrooms above the Sheerwater restaurant overlooking the Windsor Lawn and the beach. It’s a perfect sized room for a medium reception so that you’re not lost in a big hall like the Crown Room or Grande Ballroom. Their wedding went exactly as planned and they kept the fun in a relaxed and stress free way, thanks to their coordinator and the hotel staff!!!
