About the resort...
Terranea originally belonged to the Marineland of the Pacific, which opened in 1954. Marineland was the world's largest oceanarium featuring sea life, entertainment, and research facilities. Opening one year before Disneyland, many consider Marineland to be California's first major theme park, and it remained a major attraction to the area until it closed in 1987.  While no longer open to the public, the park remained a popular filming location for television and movies, most recently being used in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.  In 2007, construction began on the luxury resort, which is based on a classic Mediterranean estate.  It opened in 2009.

About the afternoon...
Terranea Resort is conveniently located exactly half way between the Wayfarers Chapel and the Point Vicente Interpretive Center.  During the downtime between the ceremony and reception, we invite everyone to come back to our villa.  Cocktails and hors d'ouevres will be served.  You can choose to relax and mingle in the villa or explore the rest of the resort.  It is a beautiful and amazing property with a lot to see!
