Look at the Darlington House and Twin Oaks House and Gardens…two totally different places in totally different parts of San Diego.  My sister got married at Twin Oaks, so PM me if you want to know anything else about it.

I’m a fellow SD bride.  We’ll be getting married at the Martin Johnson House on the UCSD campus at the Scripps Institute of Oceanology.  We also looked at the Darlington House in La Jolla.  Both are great venues but we ended up going with the MJ House because it is slightly rustic and perched on a bluff overlooking the Pacific.  It’s mostly decks, lots of outdoors space, and really big trees. It hasn’t been open to the public for booking very long, so there’s not a lot written about it, but it’s a great find!  Good luck!

I’m getting married at the Marston House Gardens.  They’ve raised their fees CONSIDERABLY though, so I’m not sure if that is an option for you.

Maybe the Serra Junipero Museum?  Quail Botantical Gardens?  Lake Oak Meadows?

I LOVE the Darlington House, we had it booked but then decided to have our wedding up North where most of our family is.  Maybe check out the Thrusday Club in Point Loma, amazing views and the house kind of has a vintage feel to it.  Good luck!

How about the Prado or one of the event areas in Balboa? Do you prefer indoor or outdoor?

Oh, you should definitely check out the Prado and Balboa park in general then. It’s very beautiful there. I’m getting married in SD (San Diego born and raised), but I am currently living in Chicago. Have you also considered a nice restaurant? for 30-40, you could probably do a nice restaurant as well depending on your budget.

Yes, Darlington does has limitations about the ending time of event…music must be off by 9:30pm. I was willing to sacrfice this because I loved it so much! I figure if we still feel like partying, we will figure something out 🙂

ekittle, what day were you planning on getting married at Darlington?? Was it October 16th? They had a cancellation and we snatched it up a couple weeks ago!

Darlington House is gorgeous and their Rose Garden is spectacular for a graden wedding. Plus, they have two other courtyards that you can use for your wedding.  The Thursday Club in Point Loma is very nice, but I didn’t really like the hall.  It felt too much like a hall and a little stuffy.  Have you checked out the La Jolla Women’s Club?

For such a small wedding I would do the Japanese Friendship Garden at the Koi Pond. (Its in balboa park) I would have done it if my wedding were smaller.
