My friend got married at la Valancia a few years ago.   I know it wasn’t a cheap venue and it came out to about $250 per head. She too had her cocktail hour on the veranda and the ceremony was on a grassy area overlooking the ocean.   Honestly, it was a gorgeous venue  and since you’re going to have the party until 10pm, there’s going to be just a few options for you to do afterwards.  I was a bridesmaid in her wedding and she had an evening wedding so a lot of the places were closed by the time the wedding was over.  All I recall was that she had a top shelf open bar and I got pretty blitzed.  Her husband had to kick us out of their wedding night suite! Hahah!  There were drunk bridesmaids everywhere…I don’t even recall eating dinner that night. 

 I did, however, work in La Jolla for about five years in a restaurant called The Spot (corner of Girard and Prospect) and that place is open until 2 AM.  It’s not the fanciest establishment, but hey the bar is open.  You could also go to places like George’s, Azul, Jose’s, Alfonzo’s or Rappungi’s.  The bar at La V is also kinda cool- it’s all red inside And make killer martinis!

Just prepare for the weather to be a little overcast if you plan on having it in La Jolla since I have heard it described as the “tit” of San Diego  and is farther west into the ocean so it tends to be cloudy often.
