Surf and Sand Resort WEdding Venue Laguna Beach CA.

Surf and Sand Resort is an ideal wedding venue located in Laguna Beach. This is one of the reasons we love being a wedding photographer. We have been photographing weddings at Surf & Sand Resort over the past 15 years. With unparalleled oceanfront views, unique ballrooms and award-winning cuisine.

Wedding Ceremonies can be held at 3 different locations at this oceanfront venue. One of our favorite ocean view venues in Laguna Beach is the Catalina Terrace. One wedding we photographed at Surf & Sand Resort was on Valentine's Day. Even in February this place is ideal for an outdoor ceremony.
