Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Nestled among gardens on a bluff overlooking miles of pristine beach, sandy coves, and crashing waves, this intimate seaside resort is a captivating destination for one-of-a-kind weddings. Oceanfront ceremonies are spectacular at Seagrove Park: a shaded path leads from the resort to a grassy knoll at the water's edge, where the view extends from Oceanside to La Jolla.
  • Sea-scented breezes cool the Pacific Terrace, an expansive rooftop patio that offers another lovely option for your "I do"s. Once the sun has set, the Terrace transforms into an idyllic setting for enjoying your delectable, chef-curated dinner under the stars, followed by dancing the night away in the Platinum Ballroom, where contemporary crystal chandeliers sparkle overhead.
  • Treat your guests to a weekend of restful seaside luxury; most of the guest rooms have terraces, many have ocean views, and a few have fireplaces. Also on-site, Spa L'Auberge offers full menu of soothing indulgences. We recommend the two of you sneak away for a special treatment: there's a private couple's garden on the spa's lush grounds, complete with a European soaking tub.
