Outdoor Wedding Venue in Santa Monica CA


Earlier this week I was at an event at the Annenberg Community Beach House in Santa Monica CA.  I think this space offers some nice options as an outdoor wedding venue.

Wolfgang Puck Catering provided the delicious food at the event.  We were served a variety of interesting and creative appetizers from spicy tuna sushi cones to mint-pea soup with crap served in an egg shell as well as blue red velvet mini cupcakes for dessert.  Keeping with an outdoor wedding venue theme, they also served raspberry lychee nut lemonade.


It is important when selecting a wedding venue especially an outdoor wedding venue to consider the weather, time of year and your location.   You want to ensure you have an alternative if the weather is not cooperating on your special day.

Other important details to consider with an outdoor wedding venue are the cost of event rentals, catering and lighting to name a few as well as any noise or permitting issues.   More details on wedding planning on a budget can be found in Budget Bash – Simply Fabulous Events on a Budget.

What I liked about the Annenberg Community Beach House is that it offers many on-site alternatives whether for an outdoor wedding venue or an interior wedding space.  There is a private home on the property for rent as well as an outdoor pool area.   When considering wedding planning on a budget, you can easily plan a small wedding with lovely cocktails and appetizers with the spectacular Pacific Ocean just a few hundred feet away.

Other wedding planning on a budget options at this location include accessible guest parking as well as tables and chairs on site.  The floor to ceiling windows are a great decor bonus since the view to the ocean can’t be beat.

I hope you found these tips for wedding planning on a budget as well as my experience at this outdoor wedding venue helpful.  Until next time, remember the Budget Bash mantra: make it simple, delicious, stylish, fun and economical to all!
