U-Shape Wedding reception setup


Elegant yet casual and beachy. Impeccably planned with plenty of room for spontaneity. Classic old world style infused with a modern twist. Weddings at The Balboa Inn are all of this and more. Celebrate your special day with a one-of-a-kind party at our charming oceanfront Newport Beach wedding venue.

Imagine the perfect wedding by the sea and we can bring your vision to life. Set on the vibrant boardwalk at the foot of the Balboa Pier, our Newport Beach wedding venue may have you kicking off your high heels before you stroll down the aisle. For unique photo opportunities, the inn is just steps from Newport Beach’s Fun Zone. Here, you can pose for some photos on the historic carousel and Ferris wheel or take a ferry ride across Newport Bay.

Plan an unforgettable wedding celebration
Our Mediterranean-style courtyard offers a romantic space for pre-ceremony mingling. With its original tile, adobe walls, potted palms and the sounds of the Pacific surf rolling in the background, it sets the perfect tone for the events to come. Once inside our Matera Ballroom with up to 175 of your closest friends and family, you’ll find the mood is just right for saying “I do!”

Meanwhile, the couple and wedding party can relax in an oceanview honeymoon suite with a Jacuzzi and fireplace. For the ceremony, options include our magnificent second-floor Matera Terrace overlooking the ocean or the gazebo at nearby Peninsula Park.

After you’ve exchanged your vows, the ocean provides fabulous scenery for photos on the pier or beach. Then, return to the upstairs terrace with views sweeping from Catalina Island to Dana Point. Or host your reception in the Matera Grand Dining Room and adjoining courtyard. Along with five-star Italian cuisine by our executive chef, you’ll enjoy a dreamy, indoor-outdoor setting awash in sea breezes.
