Farewell Brunches

As you prepare to say goodbye to your guests, send them off with a delicious brunch at First Cabin Restaurant. This restaurant provides an ideal setting to wrap up your weekend. With gorgeous views overlooking Newport Harbor, yachts, and sailboats, this will create an unforgettable last impression for your special celebration. 

After brunch, guests can wander around the harbor to take in the stunning yachts and peaceful marina, explore the surrounding neighborhoods like Balboa Island, rent a Duffy boat, or relax under the sun on one of the area’s renowned beaches.


Rehearsal Dinners

Allow us to plan a special pre-wedding get-together for your closest family and friends to get to know each other over some of the best cuisine in Southern California. Get acclimated to the property and enjoy all of the conveniences of having your rehearsal dinner in the same location as your reception and ceremony.

Our well-manicured lawn, private beach, and poolside patios are just some of the venue options for your rehearsal dinner. Match the ambiance to follow the theme of your wedding or go an entirely different route. Mix and mingle at a casual bayside barbeque; dance to steel drums and dine on lobster at a “clambake;” or do the hula and don a Hawaiian shirt for a California “Beach Boy” theme.
