There are many reasons couples choose to have a yacht wedding in Marina del Rey.
From views, views, and more views to airport ease and luxe accommodations, we’re highlighting a few factors that inspire brides and grooms to say “I do” on the water.
1. Location, Location, Location!
You’ve heard us say it before and we’ll continue to shout it from the top of our yachts’ sky decks. A wedding in Marina del Rey never goes out of style. With shimmering water as your backdrop, ocean views (including those sunset spectaculars), and that cool coastal breeze, there is no better place to embrace that famed California sunshine.
But that’s not all. The Marina is a hot wedding destination because of all it offers.
From global hotel chains and boutique properties to waterfront dining, there are plenty of accommodations to keep your wedding guests happy and stress-free. There are also activities like biking, stand-up paddleboarding, and nearby popular attractions like Venice Beach and Santa Monica for those looking to make the most of their stay.
The other advantage to hosting your wedding in Marina del Rey is its proximity to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Only four miles away, getting to and from the airport is a breeze – and avoids the dreaded freeway traffic you often hear about when visiting Los Angeles.
2. Experience Matters
Hosting your wedding with FantaSea Yachts means enlisting our esteemed team of event professionals. We know the Marina like the back of our hand — and not just the water, but the community. We know the right times for photos and the best backdrops for your wedding pics, can refer you to restaurants and hotels for group bookings, and work with local vendors to create your wedding dream team.
We also plan like no other. Weddings are in our DNA — from the tiniest of details to finding that perfect wedding flow, we do it all. When you add our event planning expertise with 40+ years of being in the Marina, it’s a winning combination.
3. Yacht Weddings are Special
There is something truly special about making your wedding a one-of-a-kind experience for your guests. And our yachts are just the ticket for that wow factor.
Not only will our signature red carpet arrival make your guests feel like a VIP, but the exclusivity of the yacht will make them feel like a million bucks. The entire yacht belongs to you for the wedding for all of the dancing, Instagram snaps, and special moments to soak in. No sharing the space with other events. No waiting in long bathroom lines. No random wedding crashers. Just 100% focus on the most important people in your life on the most special day.
4. Entertainment and Leisure Options Close By
As friends and family fly in from around the country for this once-in-a-lifetime yacht wedding, the fun doesn’t have to end when the ceremony is over and the ship returns to shore.
Thanks to its strategic location along the coast, your guests can make a wonderful vacation out of the trip.
And if they’re staying in the Marina del Rey area for its proximity to the Fantasea Yachts fleets, there are a plethora of delicious restaurants and welcoming bars to make the wedding event into a weekend or multi-day affair.
5. A Customized Experience

Of course, music is a vital part of any ceremony, and whether you choose a DJ spinning your favorite songs or a live band to create the jams to dance the night away, our yachts will accommodate your most personal preference.
