Imagine your wedding day

In the beautiful, terraced hills of Palos Verdes.  Located less than an hour from Downtown LA and overlooking the ocean, St. Peter’s by the Sea gives you the best of all things–a sacred space that offers natural, beachy/coastal beauty near Los Angeles, the Beach Cities, and Orange County.
Our desire is to assist you in creating a beautiful celebration filled with deep reverence and sacred joy.

It accommodates up to 400 guests and has a main aisles and two side aisles.
