Harbor Christian Church is the perfect setting for weddings of 225 guests or fewer. The beautiful Spanish-style buildings, with spacious grounds surrounded by tall eucalyptus trees, lawns and small shrubbery, overlook the upper bay area of Newport Beach.
The main sanctuary is an open, high-beamed worship center, fully carpeted with semi-circle seating facing a raised altar that is backed by beautiful stained glass windows, decorative stonework and lush green plants. The sanctuary conveys a feeling of warmth and spirituality.

Our Wedding Minister, Dr. Dennis Short, is the former Chaplain at Chapman University and minister at the Community Church in Corona del Mar. He is well known and highly respected throughout Orange County for the many weddings he has performed. He is in great demand for his warm, happy and personal wedding ceremonies and enjoys doing interfaith as well as Christian weddings.
Dr. Short is also a Marriage, Family and Child Counselor and couples are very appreciative of his premarital counsel. These services are included in our wedding package.
Our experienced wedding coordinator, Sandy Everett, will assist in planning your ceremony and can refer you to reasonable photographers and reception facilities. Floral arrangements may also be made through Sandy or a florist of your choice.
