((HUGS)) I would probably contact the guy that you spoke to before or that shot you that email and say someone called you and was really rude (don’t say that it was the Gallant character) and that you are ready to book.

Yikes; the Prado was my dream venue, but a.) They’re out of our price range, and b.) by the time we got around to planning they were already booked up on our date. Sigh. Good luck finding some other places– have you checked out other venues in Balboa? They have a TON of gardens you can get married in, and you could have the reception elsewhere (downtown, or close by). There’s also Heritage Park in Old Town, which was my second dream venue, but we were pretty dead-set on having the reception in the same location as the ceremony (along with a few other factors). It’s now run by the people who own the Hacienda Hotel across the street, though, and they can do the reception. Here’s the page for Heritage Park– gorgeous old Victorian homes re-located from across San Diego to save them from being torn down.

LOL I am having a nice lunch (although heavy on the good food)… I am glad that you are speaking with someone else though

That doesn’t sound very professional – I would say if you are repeatedly having trouble with the staff, you shouldn’t book there. You’ll need to be dealing with these people so much and you are basically putting your wedding day in their hands. Maybe you can find something a little less pretty, but with great customer service. I think it would definitely be worth it!

You’re welcome, and good luck with the search! Also, if your Fiance is military, there’s venues on the navy bases on Point Loma, too– the Admiral Kidd club is the first one that leaps to mind. I’ve been in a wedding there but I don’t know where to find info.

The Presidio (the actual mission/ fort on the hill overlooking Old Town/ Mission Valley– very historic! Can you tell I like old things? Haha) has a couple wedding venues, too, and you can rent out the Junipero Serra Museum for your reception! Here’s another link, this is just to the San Diego Historical Society site, which has several other options for historical sites, too:

I’ll add any if I think of more. Keep us posted ๐Ÿ™‚

No problem ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m just glad all my unused research might do someone else some good, haha. And since we share similar taste, I hope it works out for you!

It’s worth a trip to Heritage Park to check it out– the hotel where you could have your reception is right across the street, and they have this cute little temple (not what we were looking for, but it’s still cute) or this gorgeous tree up in the middle of all the houses and you can have a small ceremony under it. We just went a different direction that had some meaning to us, otherwise we’d be doing it there! We’re getting married at the college where we met and got engaged, instead ๐Ÿ™‚
