JANET AND BRANDON'S WEDDING

September, 2008 in San Diego

"We routinely reminense about how fun our wedding was. Things won't always go according to plan, but having good help and not freaking out are very important to keeping the day in perspective. After all, it is a day to celebrate your love, not to get every detail perfect because SOME thing will veer from your plan. Although a majority of our guest list was not from San Diego, everyone loved visiting San Diego (who wouldn't?!) and made a mini vacation out of it. Surprisingly, the weather for our Sep 6 wedding was very hot; everyone was sweating in the sun at the ceremony. Lastly, our guests loved the Wedding Mapper!"

"She is FANTASTIC and I would get married again just to have more of her cake. You must go see her hole in the wall shop...try to go earlier than later, because she can get booked up, as there are only so many weekends in a month."

"4 stars for the sheer beauty of the location. Needing parking passes to get on base was a bit of a hassle but we had an usher stand in front with an extra stack to make sure everyone could get in. The naval base coordinator also failed to submit the vendors list to the right security people, and there was a 1 hr delay to get them started. They also didn't tell me that the bridal room was my responsibility to book for the wedding day, so I ended up having to keep the limo longer which worked out fine in the end, but was an inconvenience when I found out and had to deal with it during the rehearsal."

"Excellent venue. Stephanie was a dream to work with and everyone was very accommodating. We had a slight smell in the ballroom bathrooms though, but I didnt find that out until I went in there towards the end of the night...make sure they dont have that problem anymore when you talk with them. I requested that all guests had a bay/ocean view room and I was rewarded with countless comments from guests that they absolutely loved it."

"La Jolla Shores is 1 mile of shoreline with parks and picnic areas. It also features a boardwalk that spans a length of the beach and is great for walking, jogging, bicycling, or rollerblading. La Jolla Shores attracts travelers from the nearby La Jolla hotels as well as locals year-round for the swimming, surfing, scuba diving, and some of the most picturesque views of the Pacific Ocean. La Jolla Shores is a short distance from downtown La Jolla, the Beverly Hills of San Diego, which boasts high-end clothiers, hotels, shops, and galleries. The sheer beauty and flat expanse of La Jolla Shores makes it ideal for strolling, picnicking, or tossing a Frisbee while enjoying the waves breaking on the beach. La Jolla Shores is also rich with marine life, which is protected by the San Diego La Jolla Ecological Reserve. People scuba dive and kayak at the south end of the beach. From the south, take Interstate 5 northbound and exit at La Jolla Parkway.

"Located in historic Gaslamp Quarters, Horton Plaza is a signature of San Diego's warm climate. This open-air mall has plenty of palms and colorful plantings to enhance the amuseument park maze of shops. The imbalance of five staggered levels -- three on one side and two on the other -- and the infusion of 40-plus paints help to create a wandering wonderland of colorful pathways and alcoves. If you get lost in the maze, head for the customer service booth on plaza level one. And if you're a member of AAA, they also can tell you how to save it. Show your card, and they'll slap some discounts on you. Like New York's Times Square, Horton Plaza is one of San Diego's best-known attractions; it's right up there with the Zoo, Balboa Park and SeaWorld. Ask any local about going downtown and they're likely to mention Horton Plaza, either as a place to go or a place to park. Just shy of 2200 spaces, the complex's parking garage is free for three hours with a purchase (four hours for validation at movie theater or restaurant)."
