Venue spotlight: The Viceroy, Santa Monica

The Viceroy Santa Monica came up on my radar recently as I was searching for a client's perfect wedding venue for her smaller, more intimate guest list. She wanted something unique- and the Viceroy is indeed unique, to say the least. The design on the hotel is impeccable; from the moment you step foot in the lobby the ultra-chic decor lends a modern and trendy feel that can't help but make you feel like you are a total jet-setter. From the hotel's website, it is described as "city-smart and by the sea, Viceroy Santa Monica fuses classic sophistication and contemporary chic to create a thoroughly modern and uniquely luxurious Santa Monica beach boutique hotel".

We headed up to check out the Bristol Room (the larger of the two spaces available, with a maximum of 80 guests for dinner, 50 or so for dinner and dancing), and I was truly impressed! The room is perfect for any couple that loves bold design. Here are a few pictures, most of which I took during our visit.

NOTE: The room was being set for a later event

This picture from the hotel's website shows a meeting set-up, but gives you a great idea of the actual color scheme. My camera doesn't do the vibrant colors justice!

The patio (perfect for ceremonies) sits just outside the Bristol Room. The window washers were busy at work during our visit- which explains the ropes and caution tape:)

I love that all the lounge furniture is yours to use once the patio is switched over from the ceremony spot to a cocktail area; this can be done while guests enjoy a cocktail hour out by the pool

The hotel sent over this picture of an actual ceremony set-up. And for a total bonus, the chiavaris come with the room!
