The Wedding Website of Kallin Zehren and Stephen Hill
The closest airport to fly into is John Wayne Airport, airport code SNA. LAX (Los Angeles) & SAN (San Diego) are both an hour or more away (depending on traffic) from San Juan Capistrano. We suggest renting a car! We have hotel blocks with reduced rates at the Double Tree and Fairfield Inn (see below). There are many hotel options in the area. Airbnb & VRBO rentals are great options! The towns closest would be: San Juan Capistrano, Dana Point, San Clemente, Capo Beach, Laguna Beach, Laguna Niguel, Ladera Ranch, Sendero & Mission Viejo. We encourage you to stay beyond the wedding weekend as there is so much to see & experience in Southern California. It is a highly desired location for summer vacation! Be sure to check out our "SoCal Adventures" section for inspiration! For those of you with Marriott points to use, we have listed several options below in San Juan Capistrano & the nearby towns. Many other options exist & this list is by no means exclusive or in any particular order.
