Wedding planning requires couples to make many difficult decisions, but when choosing a location the answer is simple. For beach weddings, outdoor weddings and destination weddings, you won’t find a better spot than La Jolla.
There’s no place in San Diego more romantic, with more natural beauty, with proximity to such a high quality of hotels. And while the weather may not be perfect, it’s about as close as you can find. The abundance of sunshine and year-round temperate climate give about as close to a promise to cooperate as you’ll get, taking one less worry off the bride and groom’s list.
Many couples looking for outdoor weddings with a view of the ocean go with one of La Jolla’s parks. The grand Ellen Browning Scripps Park, beachfront Kellogg Park, and the delicately beautiful Cuvier Park (“The Wedding Bowl”) are among San Diego’s most popular wedding locations. The La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club is also a great resource to help put together a magical ceremony right on the sand. Other couples opt to exchange vows at sunset at the less formal but intensely romantic Windansea Beach. Another favorite for a memorable oceanfront wedding: the Museum of Contemporary Art.
You can relax knowing your out-of-town guests will be spoiled once they check in to their hotel. For added convenience, some couples host both the wedding and reception at the hotel as well. You’ll save some money too, but won’t feel like you cut any corners. Popular choices include La Valencia, La Jolla Cove Suites, and Grande Colonial.
