The Cuvier Club has been repeatedly recognized as one of San Diego’s most sought after event venues.   Cuvier Park, which is a small park on the ocean, is only a few minutes walking distance from the Cuvier Club.    The Cuvier Club does have a peek a boo ocean view from it’s own outdoor bougainvillea garden.   But if you are lucky enough to secure the Cuvier Park, through the city of San Diego, you can have a full ocean view ceremony.  The Cuvier Club can host sit down weddings and social events for up to 300 guests with a dance floor and separate cocktail reception area.  Parking is plentiful on the streets surrounding the Club.

The Darlington House- Built as a private home in the 20’s, this beautifully renovated property was designed in a traditional Spanish style. With sweeping rose gardens, brick pathways, and terracotta roof tiles. You can have 150 guests seated comfortably in the rose garden and they have adjacent patios if you’re considering having your ceremony there. This allows you to have both your ceremony & reception onsite. Just a tip for larger guest counts, I love to offer valet service. It’s a small investment with a high yield.

The La Jolla Bridge Club- For those who have to be “on the ocean,” this is the place for you. A small modest building at la Jolla Cove, this place is easy to miss but not to be missed. Surrounded by a grove of trees, your guests can mingle as the sun goes down and listen to waves crashing in. For couples hosting a Wedding, you can take advantage of Elizabeth Browning Scripps Park just south of the club for your ceremony. With park permit and chair rentals , think about $600 total to have the ocean as your ceremony  backdrop on your day. The prices for renting the club varies but the max you’ll pay is $2500.
