San Diego Wedding Venues
First things first, picking the right place to marry and celebrate is of the utmost importance. Strukel says San Diegans are still very traditional when it comes to venues, in the sense that “people are still getting married in ballrooms and in a hotel that’s right on the beach in a ballroom that has no windows, so you can’t see the beach.”
In a city such as ours, an outdoor wedding should be prioritized. Exchanging vows on the beach might be a must, but there are permits, costs and regulations associated. Most popular wedding venues book over a year in advance and can often blow your budget.
One interesting solution is to book a beach house vacation rental. There may be permitting issues and landlord regulations, but booking a vacation rental for a few days could include accommodations for the wedding party, easy access to the beach for a ceremony and a beautiful setting for the reception.
Creating that backyard-wedding might be as simple as asking a friend with a beautiful backyard to host your wedding. If you still need a bigger venue, try one of these guys:
The Brick: Located in Liberty Station, this gorgeous brick building works with Epic Vendors for events.
Quartyard: Located in East Village, this industrial event space comes complete with a bar, stage, and works with an approved list of vendors.
Suzie’s Farm: Located in the Tijuana River Valley, Suzie’s Farm provides a picturesque background and, we hope, some organic vegetables for your caterer. Shall we say “farm to matrimony”?
Schwaesdall Winery: We offer many wines for tasting and you will have the opoortunity to meet the owners/winemakers on most visits. We love to meet people and hope to make your visit to our winery memorable.
