Shutters on The BeachOne Pico Boulevard Santa Monica, CA
Shutters on the Beach invites brides and grooms to hold everything from the rehearsal dinner to the wedding, reception and honeymoon on one of the most beautiful beaches in Southern California. With an oceanfront address in Santa Monica, the hotel presides as an upscale version of a classic clapboard beach cottage. The shingle-sided buildings, balconies, striped awnings and flower-bedecked trellises resonate with the residential charm and casual elegance of 1920s Hollywood.
Most ceremonies take place on the brick-lined terrace against a backdrop of sea and sky ablaze with sunset colors. The caring staff personalizes every event, whether held on the deck, in the Promenade Room or under the shell- and bead-draped Venetian chandeliers of the Grand Salon.
The rooms and suites capture the essence of chic summer cottages as well. Shuttered doors glide open to let in the balmy ocean breeze. Beyond the rooms, newlyweds find a trendy ocean-view restaurant, café, lounge, spa and fitness center. While some laze around the pool and sundeck, others join the parade of strollers, joggers, cyclists and skaters along miles of beachfront promenade.
