Long Beach is a fun, active beach city in south Los Angeles County and The Reef Long Beach reflects that. Founded in 1958, The Reef allows you to have your wedding ceremony right on the harbor with a beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean. The Reef also offers several choices for weddings and receptions including two elegant ballrooms. The Harborview Room, which can seat up to 300 guests and the Pacific Ballroom, which features access to a patio equipped with fire pits. You’ll love this beachfront location.
If you have a preference for a more casual island feel to your wedding, check out the Luau Room. The room is decked out in bamboo paneling, tiki lamps and other island touches. The Reef on the Water has breathtaking waterfront views of downtown Long Beach and can be the view for your wedding day all while being captured forever by Three16 Photography.
Several hotels are found in the area including The Queen Mary. This historic hotel was a 1936 ocean liner. Right across the bay from this venue is The Aquarium of the Pacific – the biggest aquarium in Southern California. Other Long Beach activities that your guests would enjoy includes kayaking, the annual Long Beach Grand Prix, gondola rides, harbor cruises, a Ferris wheel, skating along the boardwalk and amazing little shops and diners along Second Street. This exciting venue is located right off Queensway Drive, down the street from Harry Bridges Memorial Park.
