Your Wedding Story
Day One….
Discover one of Orange County’s most elegant treasures for your special day, the St. Regis Monarch Beach.
Crowning a beachside bluff halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego, the ocean view property serves as
an exceptional centralized location for both local and out of town wedding guests. Initially greeted by one of
our six majestic fountains, allow our distinguished staff to sweep you off to your elegant, oversized room
filled with St. Regis luxuries- custom furnishings, fresh flowers, goose-down comforters, Pratesi linens, lavish
European bathrooms, plush bathrobes, and grooming products by Remede; an immaculate oasis to retire to
after long days of planning. Perhaps arrive a day before your guests for an intimate getaway with your soonto be groom. As you immerse yourselves in the irresistibly seductive surroundings and dramatic setting, a
one-of-a-kind dining experience awaits you at celebrated chef Michael Mina’s Stonehill Tavern restaurant.
World-renowned designer Tony Chi’ sleek, sophisticated design invites you to relax and savor the moments in
the chicly-appointed dining room, scenic outdoor terrace, or cozy up in the inviting bar and lounge.
Meanwhile, and perhaps best of all, the sparkling white-sand of our private beach, gentle coastal breezes and
breathtaking sunset envelop your senses at Southern California’s only five-star, five-diamond resort.
Day Two…
Before the bridal party arrives for an exceptional day full of pre-event bonding, enjoy a lavish breakfast for
two at Motif, the European-style ocean view restaurant appointed with true flair and eclectic international
dishes created by Executive Chef Frederic Castan. As your groom and his groomsmen part for a day of play
at the matchless Monarch Beach Golf Links located along the dramatic bluffs of southern California with
sweeping views of the sea, you and your bridesmaids awake with Yoga at the water's edge, guided by one of
our spa trainers. Soon after, gather in our tranquil spa lounge to relax and toast to your special day with our
Women Who Wine Spa Package- the fusion of wine and good health in a sumptuous setting! Your relaxation
commences with antioxidant wine facials, then Mediterranean massages accented with a fig and cassis body
butter hydration. Then, it's time to sip! St. Regis wine experts will walk you and your closest friends through
a tasting of organic wine varietals preceding a Spa Lunch - a delectable repast created just for you!
Before the sun begins to set, meet your treasured friends, family and wedding coordinators for your wedding
rehearsal at your picturesque ceremony location. As the final details are appointed for this momentous
occasion, our unparalleled banquet staff awaits the arrival of you and your guests in the Wine Cellar for a
once-in-a-lifetime private celebration. This evocative, intimate dining venue features 100-year-old French
paved flooring and stone walls that create a seductive, cellar-like ambiance. Your guests will enjoy a tasting
table, dining area resplendent with elegant mahogany and custom iron furnishings, and an expansive
international wine inventory of some 17,000 bottles.
After an eventful evening of reminiscing over unique culinary delights, escape to your ocean view suite to
dream of the magical day that begins with the rise of the sun…
Wedding Day…
As you are gently awoken by the soft sounds of the sea, a butler serves warm Classic French Toast and
piping hot coffee on your private balcony overlooking the exquisite ocean ambiance. As you reflect on
the exhilarating moment you first met your fiancé, your bridesmaid’s gather for a morning of primping to
perfection. With director chairs in hand, a team of Vogue Salon beauty experts transform your suite into
a personalized salon. Giggles and glamour fill the afternoon as unforgettable snapshots are treasured.
Your bridal party and private photographer capture the cherished moments in our romantic rotunda as
your guests generously fill the ceremony location, in sheer awe of the beauty and splendor that is
Your Wedding.
The trumpets sound- your moment has arrived. The guests are brought to their feet as the woman in
white… that’s you!... is escorted down the beautifully adorned aisle.
Vows are exchanged, tears and utter joy are felt unanimously, the kiss of a lifetime is shared…
We now pronounce you, Husband and Wife!
Soon thereafter, the celebration awaited by all begins as the ballroom doors are opened and you are
officially introduced as the newly wedded couple!
Sounds of a musical ensemble fill the room as guests dine, enjoying the unique personalized menu
created especially by you! The cake is cut and the dance floor is greeted with the first sweet steps shared
by husband and wife. Your DJ mixes the signature beats of your favorite tunes,
as your guests dance the evening away.
At last, the paramount moment you and your groom have been waiting to share has arrived; you retire to
your ocean view suite, finally bonded as lifelong partners ready to take on all this world has to offer.
Day After…
An intimate Brunch welcomes your closest guests the morning after your wedding on our sun-filled
ocean view lawn. Sweet and savory morning treats garnish the table as the enchanting experiences of the
night past are shared- a charming way to end the most extraordinary weekend… because of course,
memorable occasions deserve incredible settings-
