Loews Coronado Bay Resort

If you are not familiar with Loews Coronado Bay Resort it is set on a private 15-acre peninsula surrounded by the Pacific Ocean and San Diego Bay.  Isolated from the hustle of the city it is made even more magical with views of the city skyline.  The resort can host your event, from a group spa day to an oceanfront wedding ceremony, to a post-celebration brunch on the Bay, and beyond.  San Diego Weddings of Distinction very much enjoyed the views, the service, and the property at our October meeting.

Real Wedding :: Leo Carrillo Ranch wedding

Mike Hogan of Entertainment At Large had this to say about a recent wedding he provided entertainment for.  Leo Carrillo Ranch was absolutely the perfect venue for Devin and Leesa. They were looking for something unique and relaxed and the Ranch fit the bill. The décor was amazing and Personal Touch Dining got to break out their new Corn Hole Game which was a big hit during the cocktail hour. It was a Sunday afternoon wedding so brunch was served and of course the food was amazing, you’ve gotta like French Toast at a wedding! I loved Devin and Leesa’s eclectic taste in music and the dance floor was packed all afternoon!! A special thanks to Leah and Nikka for being so great to work with, you both made for a great celebration!

Real Wedding :: Point Loma Naval Base

This military wedding was on a gorgeous day, right on the ocean.  Friends and family were in a very celebratory mood, they started dancing right away during the cocktail hour.  The father of the bride was the highlight of the party, he was singing at the top of his lungs and doing featured dances in the middle of the dancefloor while all the guests cheered him on. Congratulations Caroline & Mike!
