Located in the Back Bay area of Newport Beach, Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort is a small gated beach area that has been part of the Orange County scene for over 60 years. It not only offers places to stay, food to eat, and both sand and water activities, it is also home to some of the best ambiance and scenery around for weddings. A Newport Dunes Wedding in Newport Beach makes for a beautiful wedding venue and Three16 Photography can capture your moment for a lifetime.
At Newport Dunes, you have the option to choose from either an indoor setting or one under the stars at one of their outside ceremony areas. Whichever you choose, the backdrops are simply beautiful and will allow your wedding photos to pop. The backdrops are so incredible, that Newport Dunes also makes for a great location for an engagement photo session.
One of the areas that a Newport Dunes wedding offers for their ceremonies is the beach itself. They offer three areas to select from. You can choose between:
*The Grassy Area, which comes right up to the sand.
*The Pavilions at the Beach, which is a cabana-style ceremony setup.
*Stick your feet right on the sand and have your ceremony directly on the Sand itself.
Another wedding ceremony you can opt for is a Gazebo Wedding. Newport Dunes is home to a beautiful waterfront grand gazebo that truly brings out classiness to any wedding. Surrounded by a grassy area, you will really feel like you’re on stage with this gazebo.
They also have the Bay View Room, Marina Terrace or the Back Bay Bistro as options for your event as well.
In addition to the traditional wedding package, Newport Dunes also offers Micro Weddings and Elopement Packages as well.
Wedding Receptions can be held along the waterfront or go inside and enjoy a beautiful night of celebration with family and your favorite guests.
Guest capacity ranges can vary depending on the type of event you’re having, whether it is indoor or outdoor event, and seating versus standing. Check with the venue for a more exact capacity count for your event.
For your out-of-town guests, there are plenty of places to stay in the area as well as Newport Dunes itself. There is Hyatt Regency Newport Beach, Ramada by Windham in Costa Mesa/Newport Beach, or the Holiday Inn Express Newport Beach, among many others. Top eateries include SOL Mexican Cocina, Newport Landing Restaurant, or the old standby, the Rusty Pelican. Of course, there are so many other locations just along Pacific Coast Highway alone. And while you’re here, go have some fun at the Newport Beach Pier, the Balboa Fun Zone, Newport Island or head to Downtown Laguna Beach.
