Catalina Island Resort ServicesP.O. box 737 Avalon, CA
From grand to private, the Catalina Island Resort Services has the wedding venue that is perfect for you. Let your dreams come true at one of our three incredible properties: the Catalina Country Club, situated on a hill overlooking peaceful Avalon; the Descanso Beach Club, a palm tree-lined oceanfront oasis for an informal beachside celebration; or the landmark Casino Ballroom, featuring an interior as magnificent as the panoramic ocean views.
The Casino Ballroom
Grand, Glamorous, One Of A Kind
Few words can describe the ambiance of the Catalina Casino: it epitomizes everything glamorous and romantic about Catalina Island. The one-of-a-kind venue is simply stunning inside, outside, and all around. If the meticulously decorated walls could talk, they’d tell countless stories of romance and celebration gathered from decades of memorable events. The immense, Deco-themed ballroom is large enough to contain both your wedding ceremony and reception.
The Descanso Beach Club
A Stunning Outdoor Oasis
Down a palm tree-lined path just beyond the scenic Catalina Casino lies the Descanso Beach Club, Avalon’s only privately owned beachfront property available for public use. A terraced lawn, outfitted with an elevated stage, leads directly to the beach, with crystal clear waters stretching as far as the eye can see. The lawn seats up to 250 seated guests while the entire venue can accommodate groups as large as 1,200. This is the premier location for your picture-perfect beachside wedding.
The Catalina Visitors Country Club
Intimate, Private and Romantic
The Club’s expansive layout is divided into several unique areas. A brick terrace, set just off the main entrance, is ideal for small, intimate affairs. Exchange vows with the ocean as a backdrop, and enjoy a reception in the same location or in the adjacent banquet room. Continue up the stairs through the entryway into the Fountain Terrace, a classic setting for both weddings and receptions for up to 120 guests. Lined with ornate cement columns, paved with accented brick flooring, and anchored by an elaborate tile fountain, the Fountain Terrace exudes elegant simplicity. It is easy to see why outdoor receptions are so popular: guests can lounge comfortably in wrought-iron chairs, beneath market umbrellas in the daytime or under the stars at night.
