Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review

With San Diego's wealth of pristine beaches, it's no wonder so many couples choose to wed with their "toes in the sand", and this resort's beach ceremony spot is one of the region's loveliest. You'll say "I do" as Mission Bay's tranquil waters lap at the shore and sailboats glide by gracefully in the distance—an iconic snapshot of "America's Finest City", to be sure.

For a celebration with a decidedly South Seas twist, consider the exquisite Garden by the Bay, where towering palm trees form a natural wedding arch. Exchange vows beneath the softly swaying fronds surrounded by lush tropical gardens, all with an unobstructed view of the ocean. Not quite ready to leave the water's edge? Continue the fête right here—this area is wonderful for dining under the stars, and the sunsets aren't to be missed.

You might also hold your reception on the Bayside Terrace, with its cascading waterfall and striking 60-year-old ficus tree. Or, opt for one of the hotel's chic ballrooms, each of which offers a host of fine features, from dazzling Italian glass chandeliers to French doors that open to views of the pool and bay.

With its unique indoor/outdoor feel, the Garden Pavilion is the best of both worlds—it boasts window-lined walls, a soaring ceiling hung with Art Deco-inspired lights, and an adjacent patio with a trickling fountain. For something a bit different, consider Fresco's, an inviting, lounge-style space where you can enjoy the seasonal fireworks from nearby Sea World (and make believe they're just for you!).

Of course, you aren't limited to any one, or even two, of these captivating sites—how you choreograph your party is entirely up to you. The combinations are endless, and your dedicated event specialist will help you work out all the details, including obtaining the permit for your beach vows and accommodating your cultural traditions.

That same flexibility extends to the personalized packages, which can be easily tailored to fit your needs and budget. They even offer one exclusively for elopements or very small events: A popular option is an intimate ceremony on the resort's rustic dock on the bay, followed by an open-air reception on Magnolia Patio, with bay breezes rustling through the leaves of the space's namesake tree.

Best yet? The resort is the ideal choice for a wedding weekend. Its central location, just a quick drive to all of the city's most popular attractions, will make this a favorite with your out-of-town and local guests alike. And because it's a true resort, with outstanding waterfront rooms, sumptuous dining, enticing pools, the divine Spa Brezza, and much more, you can enjoy a truly San Diego experience without setting foot outside the lavish grounds. On second thought, you may want to extend your stay into a "wedding week"!
