Wedding Day Tips for Guests

Hi, everyone! Here's a few guidelines that should help with your ease of maneuvering yourselves through next Saturday.

The dress code is business casual, but most important be comfortable. LADIES!! - The ceremony as well as reception will be on grass--please bring comfortable shoes to enjoy the whole evening.

Parking is free--the lot is located in the gate.You will congregate in a turnaround, and be shuttled to the ceremony site by professional drivers, so please, please, please don't be late.

PLEASE VISIT THE RESTROOM BEFORE THE CEREMONY. There are no restrooms up at the ceremony site, and we anticipate the drive up, ceremony, and drive down will take about 1 hour.

We anticipate the evening will get chilly despite the hot California summers we all love. Please bring a sweater or light jacket for the evening, so that you can stay out by the dance floor all night long with us!

We'll have a few Blue and Orange balloons at the entrance(hillside of PCH) to turn right in the nature preserve. The address again is 33905 Pacific Coast Hwy, Malibu CA. You can also check the Map link on the right hand side of this page for help.

A couple of things to know. Traffic clogs up along Zuma Beach which is just west of Kanan Road. As you see below in the red, traffic along PCH backs up here on the weekend and takes roughly 20-30 minutes just to get through this one mile stretch.

Here's a couple of traffic tips that can be helpful from getting to the Site if you're coming from the Valley or the South Bay.

The best way to get there if you're on the 101 is to exit Kanan and head south. After Six Miles, turn right on Mulhullond Hwy to AVOID the Kanan backup and stay left about a mile down as it forks into Encinal Canyon Rd. After 3 1/2 Miles, you'll hit a T in the road. Make a left turn. AVOID the 23! It looks shorter, but is very windy and it'll get you car sick. Once you hit PCH, turn right and you're less than 2 miles from the site:

This is a great little traffic tip I got from Dan Mack as the stretch of the 405 North is always packed up through the I-10. Stay in the right hand lane as you pass the airport up until you merge on to the Marina Fwy(90) west. Exit the first street, Centinela Ave., and continue North(it changes it name to Bundy along the way). Once you go under the I-10, there's an entrance to the Santa Monica Fwy West on your left.
