@CelticBeachBride:  I am looking at the Redondo Beach Old Library. It’s on the beach without being ON the beach. It’s up on a hill overlooking the beach, so you have the view without the sand. You can get married outside on the grass and the reception can be held inside. I think it holds up to 250.

I haven’t priced it all out, but I believe the Long Beach Art Museum is another beach view/not on the beach venue you might want to look at.

@CelticBeachBride:  I’m getting married at Chart House in Redondo Beach. Check out their Facebook for photos. They have a space to the side on the sand that makes for a gorgeous scene for ceremonies. The restaurant has windows everywhere overlooking the water, and it is makes for gorgeous sunset photos. Erin, the coordinator, is amazing, sweet, and great at her job. Honestly, the food isn’t going to be listed in foodie magazines, but it’s definitely better than your normal wedding fare. Good luck with your search!

Oh! I almost forgot. Your budget *might* be able to allow you to do what I really wanted to…rent a villa on Palos Verdes and have the wedding there! It would be a lawn ceremony but with amazing cliff views of the ocean. The reception might also have to be outdoors unless you find one with a banquet room, or you can rent a tent. Just some ideas. I desperately want someone to have that wedding so that I can see the pictures, haha.

@CelticBeachBride:  Thanks for the link to the other reviews. Honestly, I have two cousins who are gourmet chefs, another who’s a professional baker and my sister’s boyfriend is a dj… if I could find a decent venue that allowed me to bring in my own vendors I’d have SO MUCH MONEY left over! It’s really hard though.

@CelticBeachBride:  Oh wow. That totally stinks for those poor brides :(. Luckily, we’re keeping our ceremony indoors because we have some elder guests who would have trouble navigating the sand. Also, our wedding is on a Sunday morning, so hopefully the beach will be more sparse. We’re doing out first look on the beach…unless someone else is setting up their wedding. Eep.

@CelticBeachBride:  Awww. Yeah, I was pretty sad to let go of that dream. One day, I’m going to get someone on WB to have theirs there!

@CelticBeachBride:  I don’t know if you’d be down for this, but some wedding planners will just do a venue search for a couple hundred bucks – basically come up with a list, let you use their resources, whatever, to get you into a venue.  I found mine that way, a beachside location in OC that basically has the elements you described…I would have never found it on my own, and I thought the name of the place was stupid and that she was leading me astray, but I trusted the planner and it was fabulous!  It’s a budget buster so I won’t drop the name unless you want it anyway.  I ended up thinking the planner was so helpful I hired her part time…and now full time.
