This past Monday, I had the pleasure of visiting the Avia Hotel in Long Beach, CA, with Kerry Pulverman of de Luxe Weddings & Events

The Avia's meeting and events manager, Melissa Selmanson gave us a lovely tour of the property.  If you are looking for an ultra modern venue with fabulous decor and a stunning view this is the place to be!

The Avia has a variety of private event spaces ranging from intimate spaces for a plated reception dinner for 60 to the spacious Rooftop Pool Terrace for about 100.  I love the laid back lounge vibe of the Rooftop Pool Terrace.

I truly enjoyed not only the creative decor throughout the hotel, but also the atmosphere both inside and out.  The Avia is located adjacent to the Long Beach Pike so there is no shortage of dining and entertainment opportunities for all of your out of town guests.  The Avia can arrange a room block so your guests can enjoy the entire weekend with you.


The Avia Rooftop Pool Terrace

Avia_Hotel_Long_Beach_Wedding_Photography_1.jpgThese awesome shades make me feel like I'm on a sailboat :)

These Cabanas are HOT!

There are eco friendly plants throughout the rooftop terrace.
The Avia's Courtyard is another great space for a reception.  The different shapes and colors of furniture is a nice fun touch.
I can totally picture some sweet Bridal Portraits on this couch.
Notice the rainbow prism effect in the mirrors on the right side? Pretty Neat!

The Avia's Buffet style Kitchen is perfect for a morning after Brunch.

Kerry took this photo of me photographing the Courtyard. LOL.


Check out Rob's artistic edits of the views from Avia. What a transformation. 
The Avia is located at:

285 Bay Street

Give Melissa a call to book your event today! We can't wait to be there to document all the fun :)
