It’s historic, it’s updated, and it’s on the beach—what else do you need? Offering six reception sites that fit a range of 150 to 450 guests, a personal event-planning service, and specialized menus to choose from, the Balboa Bay Resort knows how to do your special day right. Sure, it’s pricey—but that’s why you should only marry once.
