Three Reasons to Get Married at the Hotel Del Coronado

The iconic Hotel Del Coronado is near the top of our favorite San Diego Wedding venues! Here are three reasons to consider a Hotel Del Coronado wedding!

Jaw-Dropping Beauty

With the stark red and white exterior and the towering spire atop the Grand Ballroom, the Hotel Del Coronado is a beacon of the San Diego coast. From the first glimpse of the hotel as you cross the Coronado Bridge to the minute you set foot inside this historic structure, there is beauty at every turn.

Tennis Court Wedding Reception

Last September, I photographed Brittney and David's wonderful San Diego beach wedding at St. Malo.  Their wedding reception involved one of the most amazing transformations of a space I've ever seen! The transformation was led by Kerrie of Platinum Weddings by Kerrie, one of my favorite wedding planners!  To begin, it involved a base floor installed over the entire expanse of the rustic tennis court, with a supple white carpet laid atop the base.

Next, white draping was hanged on the south, west and east sides to block distracting elements outside the court and give the space a closed-off and cozy feel.  Gelled uplighting was shone upon the white draping, which added dimension to the perimeter.  Market lights were strung overhead to give the area a warm ambiance.

San Diego Wedding Violinist

A highlight from Chase and Matt's Hotel Del Coronado San Diego wedding was the performance of Spags Music!  The electric violinist not only serenades guests before the ceremony and during cocktail hour, but she absolutely slays as a DJ!  This was shot shortly before Chase and Matt's same-sex ceremony on the Windsor Lawn. san diego violinist wedding ceremony hotel del coronado

Stacey + Brett : Vista Valley Country Club Wedding

TAYLOR44.jpg

Stacey and Brett were married recently at Vista Valley Country Club, the recently-renovated venue nestled in the northeast hills of Vista.  Theirs was the first wedding since the renovation and it looked amazing!  The new venue is reminiscent of a Tuscan villa with accents of Provence, topped off by 17th Century gates that were imported from France. The wedding was brilliantly coordinated by Jenna of JLM Events, who flew in from the Bay Area to plan the event.
