I’m having my reception at the Coronado Community Center.  Its on the water with a golf course view. Very reasonable.  We are trying to decide to have the ceremony on the grassy area next to the center or on base. The beach and secluded in San Diego is sort of hard.  I’m meeting with my day of coordinator soon and I’ll run it by him. 

You may want to check La Jolla.  There is a grassy area on prospect that has a lot of  weddings.  You may also want to look at the Powerhouse in Del Mar.  Both of those places are city owned. Let me know if there is anything I can do!  I used to be a catering director, so I have a lot of contacts if you need to get the skinny on a vendor.

PS  I have an excellent vet if they need to leave the dog with someone.  He has an office in Julian and Poway.  Best Vet ever.

Cuvier Park was the one I was thinking of off of prospect.  The parking can be a challange, but not so bad if you carpool.  Someone just acts as the valet and makes the hike. 

Mission Bay Park can get quite crowded depending on what time of year you are looking at.

You may also want to check the Coronado Ferry Landing.

If you are looking at Mission Bay, try The Dana. 

 Here is the link to the Powerhouse http://www.delmar.ca.us/Visitors/pwrcc.htm

When are you looking to get married? 

Vet info – Dr Michael LaPorte Town and Country 858-486-4800.  We had a 16 year old basset that was allergic to grass.  We are a military family and that dog had lots of miles on him and at least 6 vets.  When we moved we would literally drive over 2 hours to see Dr. LaPorte.

There is a park in Carlsbad that has a chapel in it…its close to the water and supposedly very beautiful.  My stepfather’s memorial service was held there this summer, but I wasn’t able to attend.  You might try looking on the City of Carlsbad’s website.

MissRojoOso’s suggestion of the Dana is a good one. My sister works there and she says it is very popular for weddings. As for parking in La Jolla, there are also several parking garages with reasonable rates sprinkled around (I remember this because for a while I was considering having my reception at the Museum of Contemporary Art). You could just let your guests know the location of the closest garage (the one I’m thinking of charges $5 for the whole day).

By the way, if you end up choosing La Jolla for your ceremony site, check out the Grande Colonial Hotel for the reception. I totally wanted to have my reception there, but the hotel only has reception space that will fit about 80 people, and I had more than that. Oh, and of course the Museum of Contemporary Art has reception space and it is the closest place to Cuvier Park.
