The lush secluded gardens of Hotel Bel-Air offer a stunning backdrop for weddings. The most popular ceremony locations are on the iconic hotel’s outdoor lawns. The Front Lawn offers a larger space that can accommodate up to 300 guests, while the area around Swan Lake holds up to 130 guests and overlooks the grotto-like home of the hotel’s three signature swans, Chloe, Hercules and Athena. Most wedding receptions at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel are held in the Garden Ballroom, which can accommodate up to 350 guests.

For smaller receptions, the private Palm Room and Palm Patio make for an ideal intimate setting.
