Venue Background
Hotel del Coronado has enjoyed more than 120 years of legendary romance. King Edward VIII of England gave up his throne to marry the former Coronado housewife Wallis Simpson (it is rumored they may have met at The Del during Edward's 1920 visit). And, the love story Bid Time Return took place at the Del, which brought together Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour in the movie version Somewhere in Time.

Add to this romantic legacy the hotel's sun-drenched beaches, moonlit ocean views, spectacular setting, impeccable service and award-winning cuisine and it's easy to see why the Travel Channel named The Del the #1 best place to get married in the U.S. The resort offers a variety of wonderful ceremony and reception settings including the elegant Ballroom with views of the Pacific, the historic Crown Room with chandeliers designed by Wizard of Oz author L. Frank Baum, the picturesque Garden Patio and the seaside Windsor Lawn.
