The Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort was expanded a couple years ago with a new tower and event spaces including the Vista Lawn which you can see in this photo. Additionally you can see that the resort is on Pacific Coast Highway across from the beach.
In this front aerial view of the Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort, you can see the Vista Lawn ceremony space which overlooks the ocean as well as the pool ceremony area.

The Vista Lawn is the more popular venue for Indian wedding ceremonies at the Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort. However the resort also has the pool area available for ceremonies, as you can see in this photo behind the mandap.
This is a view of what the pool ceremony at the Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort looks from behind the mandap. The resort staff will close down the pool but as you can see this is a public area of the resort with a restaurant on the left as well as a walkway.
This is what that mandap in the previous photo looks like from the front.
The indoor-outdoor cocktail hour space is a feature that many couples love about the Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort. Your guests can enjoy beautiful SoCal weather while sipping on cocktails and mingling before your wedding reception.

There are many gorgeous areas across the resort for your photoshoots throughout the day. This is very convenient as it can be difficult to walk around in that heavy lehenga and the wedding day is always so busy that it’s nice that you don’t have to go far.
