Located in the heart of Balboa Park, The Prado Restaurant is one of San Diego’s historic dining experiences. Featuring stunning indoor and outdoor seating, The Prado offers guests a first-class dining experience, coupled with the history and charm that defines San Diego’s Balboa Park.
We are so fortunate to have this historic restaurant in our group, and when the opportunity presented itself to host our September meeting there, let’s just say it was a ‘slam dunk.’ It was an intimate setting, perfect for our select-group. The vibrancy of teal colors and exposed wood beams captured the charm that San Diego/Balboa Park are known for! Edible Arrangements catered the “appetizers” of delicious fruit, and we heard from a local agent who spoke to the group about the importance of planning for life’s ups and downs, especially for small business.
All in all, it was great to get back to The Prado. The restaurant is an icon in San Diego, and especially so for a San Diego wedding. There is nothing more quintessential San Diego!

It was a the perfect fall day, but in San Diego, it always feels like summer. The outdoor wedding of Stephanie and Matthew took place at the beautiful Hilton San Diego Bayfront, in one of the hotel’s outdoor gardens. The colors were blush , ivory and white, and against the backdrop of San Diego’s vibrant Bay, the ceremony was romantic as it was elegant.
The reception followed, not at the Hilton, but at the Westgate Hotel in the nearby Gaslamp District. The couple, in true fairy-tale fashion, made the few mile trek to the reception location via no other than, a horse carriage! Thanks to Always & Forever Carriage Company, Stephanie and Matthew kept the romantic spirit of their ceremony alive, and arrived to their reception to party the night away.
Thanks to the coordinating efforts of Carmin Cermak, all the details of the multi-location wedding had to be timed perfectly. And, of course, it was! Carmin also worked to coordinate the florals, which in line with the bride’s colors of blush, ivory and white, were soft and romantic.
The wedding cake was provided by Sweet Cheeks Baking Company. The cake was a classic, 4-tiered masterpiece, and just like this beautiful couple, it has elements that were romantic and whimsical.
