There are dozens of wonderful beach locations for
a special wedding but the sites I have listed are
some of my favorites.
Permits often depend on the number of people
attending your ceremony and the beach's location.
Call the contact numbers below for specific
information or call me to help you select just the
right beach for your ceremony.

Santa Monica & Manhattan Beach
Picking the Perfect Beach...
for a Los Angeles Wedding
by Reverend Bob Schneider
The beach in Santa Monica is large, wide and often crowded in
summer. If you're looking for convenience to restaurants, Bluff Park
provides an ocean view and an easy walk to a reception site. No permits
are granted. No more than 150 people. Call (310) 458-8573.
The beach in Manhattan Beach is also large and wide, with volleyball
nets and locals strolling the Strand. No vendor wedding setups allowed
(chairs, tents, music, etc.). A permit for $150+ is required for more than
a wedding with more than 50 guests. Call (310) 305-9549.
One unique wedding location in Long Beach is the Light House at
Rainbow Harbor. At the Light House you have the city skyline and the
Queen Mary as a backdrop. Weddings less than 75 with no vendor
services do not need a permit for the Light House or city beaches.
Permits are required for larger weddings.
