Congrats to happy couple Mark & Laura on their engagement! Mark proposed to Laura on our oceanfront terrace a couple nights ago…and she said “yes” of course. So sweet! 

Engagement season is on the horizon…

We’re sure you already know that Thanksgiving is just a little over a week away, but did you also know that Engagement Season begins on the same day? That’s right…Engagement Season starts on Thanksgiving and ends on Valentine’s Day, and marks the time of year when the most marriage proposals occur.

Over the years, we have been so fortunate to witness (and at times, help coordinate) the most beautiful and heart-melting proposals on our oceanfront terrace. Combine the panoramic view of the Pacific and the soundtrack of the waves with luscious drinks and an indulgent dinner, and you have a recipe for romance! If we just described the proposal story of your dreams, please let us know… we would be honored to help facilitate the perfect setting for an unforgettable evening.

And of course, a proposal leads to a wedding, and we always delight in the opportunity to host the friends and family of those who choose Malibu as their special place to exchange vows and enter together into a lifetime of wedded bliss. If you’re planning a Malibu wedding in the coming year (or expecting to soon have a reason to!) we’d love to have the opportunity to host you, your family and your friends as well. Whether your ceremony will be on the beach, on the pier, at the Adamson House or at any of the amazing wedding venues here in Malibu, the Malibu Beach Inn promises to set the scene for a wedding weekend to remember.

As the only beachfront hotel in Malibu, we offer 47 elegantly-appointed guest rooms, including seven suites, all with scenic oceanfront views and private balconies. In addition, we would be honored to host any or all of your meals in our on-site dining room, Carbon Beach Club, which offers indoor or al fresco dining, boasting breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, serenaded by the tumbling surf below.

A Truly Engaging Evening at Malibu Beach Inn

If you’ve ever had the opportunity to join us for dinner on the Carbon Beach Club terrace, you can attest to the fact that it’s an idyllic setting for romance. The food and drinks set the tone for a sumptuous dining experience, but the real recipe for romance is all around…from the breathtaking sunset, to the warm glow of the fire to the enchanting soundtrack of the crashing waves. 

It’s our pleasure to share with you the story of a couple who recently turned this recipe for romance into a truly engaging evening. As told by the charming and romantic groom-to-be, Alonzo…

On the night of our engagement, I had a driver pick up Reagan and drive her up the coast to a hotel in Malibu called Malibu Beach Inn.  When she arrived at the hotel she was given a key to our room.  In the room I had all of her stuff she needed to get ready for dinner waiting for her as well as chilled champagne and our special playlist playing.  She got ready (quickly!) and met me downstairs where I was waiting for her on the restaurants outside terrace.  She looked beautiful as always and I nearly passed out from excitement + nervousness.  When she came out I got on my knee and asked her to marry me…all she said was “Oh baby, oh baaabbyy!” so I had to ask her again (just to be sure that “Oh baby” meant “yes”).  She said “yes” and put my heart at ease.  Lauren from The Malibu Beach Inn was so incredibly helpful in making sure that the night went perfectly and the pictures attached were mostly taken by her helpful staff.  I am so happy to share this moment with you all and Reagan and I are so looking forward to sharing our lives together and with all of you!

We wish you all the best and look forward to helping you celebrate many anniversaries together at the Malibu Beach Inn, Alonzo & Reagan!
