Balboa Inn Wedding Newport BeachLast year we shot a spectacular wedding near the Newport Beach Pier at a quaint location called the Balboa Inn. This Balboa Inn Wedding offered a unique charm and outdoor atmosphere perfect for the summer months in Newport Beach. Get there early as parking is scarce. But nonetheless, it was worth the wait. The fresh ocean air sets the tone as guests begin to arrive and anticipate the emotions of the day.

Melody was the bride and she was very happy with the bridal suite offered for her and her bridesmaids at her Balboa Inn Wedding. The room was large and had enough seating for her and the girls. The mother of the bride and groom were also This venue was really unique in that it had somewhat of an urban feel but still a relaxed vibe of Newport Beach and just a few steps to the boardwalk and Newport pier for some really stunning bride and groom photos after the ceremony.

The Balboa Inn Wedding  rooms were nice and provided a terrific atmosphere for the groomsmen to get ready while the bride and her squad of bridesmaids occupied a large downstairs office to prep for the wedding complete with makeup artists and hair stylists. Shortly after prep the bride and groom did their first look on a balcony overlooking the boardwalk. It was a private and intimate moment where they could see each other for the first time and share their most intimate thoughts about the day ahead.

The ceremony was outdoors and decorated beautifully by Amy at  Boho belle Weddings. Amy has experience with Balboa Inn Weddings and it showed. The bride came out a door onto a balcony that looks down upon the aisle, guests and courtyard. 

She then walked down the stairway where she found her mother as her mother walked her down the aisle. Her father had recently passed and his photo sat on a front row chair to honor his presence. It was a touching display that everyone close to her deeply felt and respected throughout the ceremony. Truly an emotional day.

The wedding party joined the bride and groom on the pier for some group photos before returning for a cocktail hour in the downstairs open air lobby area. The atmosphere was great for conversation and celebration as the upstairs deck was transformed into a dining area for dinner. After Dinner guests then moved downstairs for dancing and photo booth fun. We did a large group photo at the end of the night just before the cake cutting as the wedding was finally winding down. This is a terrific venue for medium to small sized weddings. This Balboa Inn Wedding felt  very intimate and it was certainly a beautiful atmosphere.
