Johanna and Michael's Wedding

We had a wonderful wedding week in San Diego, July 2010. We were working on a fairly strict budget smaller than a typical S. Cal wedding. Our vendors were absolutely amazing. From the amazing food and event design we recieved from The Abbey Catering we were able to have everything and more we wanted for our guests to experience.

Vendors & Venues Reviews

Abbey Catering Company
San Diego, CA

The Abbey and our event specialist, Jesika are amazing! People are still talking about the food. The whole staff was extremely professional and amazing every time we spoke with them and especially the day of our reception. We choose the all inclusive package which was so fantastic, especially since we were planning our wedding from out of town. All of our vendor choices from photography to flowers were amazing. We feel so lucky to have found the Abbey.

Smoke House Grills
Escondido, CA

Excellent service and delicous food. We had a beach BBQ for a farewell party for our guests. We are from the Midwest and the south where people are picky about the BBQ but, everyone raved! The service was fantastic and extremely professional even though we had some unruly guests. The cornbread, mac and Cheese, ribs, and better than anything cake were special favorites.

Music As you like it
San Diego, CA
Bands/Live Entertainment

This company reps many artists all over San Diego. We had trouble finding a great acoustic guitarist to play our cocktail hour and dinner until we found Music as you Like it. They sent us mulitple musician recordings for us to listen to and we fell in love with Greg. He was absoultely amazing. He even agreed to learn 2 new songs for us and performed them perfectly. If you are looking for a great acoustic guitarist to play the likes of James Taylor, Bruce Cockburn, Billy Bragg, John Mayer, etc... Greg is amazing!

The Womans Club was a great choice for us. We were able to move through out the venue to provide our guests a little bit of everything- outdoor cocktails, beautiful dinner in the front lawn, then desserts and dancing inside with a side lounge. It was perfect and great walking distance to hotels and bars.

Hyatt Regency Mission Bay - San Diego Hotel, Sea World Hotel
San Diego, CA

All of ours guests opted for this hotel. They work well with us to provide a great block rate especially for a July wedding. They hotel is beautiful and close to activites in Mission Bay/Beach. The only downside is they had trouble getting our welcome gifts to our guests that arrived earlier in the week and the Sea World traffic provided some challenges for our Thursday night activites in Old Town.
