Burlap & Lace

6 ways to bring these beautiful textures into your wedding

Who would have ever thought these two would make such a beautiful couple (no pun intended). Maybe opposites really do attract! The rough texture of burlap and the soft feminine touch of lace can truly transform your special day into a classic rustic, yet chic, wedding. You can accent your wedding with these small details to capture the rustic outdoors in any venue…preferably La Jolla Cove Suites.

 1. Wedding Invitations


Use actual burlap & lace on your Invitations to play with your guests’ senses. Or for a more casual, less expensive approach there is always photo printed invitations.


 2. Centerpieces Simplicity at its best… masons jars, burlap & lace strips glued on, and your flower arrangement placed inside.

 3. Ceremony Aisle Accents Talk about an inexpensive and adorable way to decorate your ceremony aisle.  As you walk down to say your “I do’s” to the person of your dreams, you will be able to catch a glimpse of these beautiful bows and you will most certainly appreciate the simplicity it brings to your day.



4. Table Runners If you don’t plan on having a communal style reception dinner, no worries, this table runner can be used to make the head table for you and your future partner one that stands out.

5. Cake Décor  Piece of cake.


6. Your Bridal Bouquet  The flower arrangement would be up to you, but with a little piece of burlap and a lace accent on top, it will definitely look rustic chic against your wedding dress as you walk down the aisle to the next step in your life.

Congratulations and happy planning!

Congratulations Brittany and Mike!

This month La Jolla Cove Suites had the honor of hosting Brittany and Mike’s wedding reception. They chose ivory linens and made wooden boxes for their centerpieces. The floral arrangements, provided by White Lotus Productions, beautifully accented the table tops. We especially loved the centerpiece for Brittany and Mike’s head table!


Brittany handmade napkin rings for all of the guests, and each one was unique.  The napkin rings tied into the vintage theme of the reception, which could also be seen in the antique bird cage that was used for cards.


Congratulations Brittany and Mike!

Bringing the Sea …to La Jolla Cove Suites

We were definitely in for a treat when Heather and Rob decided to have their wedding reception at our breathtaking oceanfront oasis. We loved how they brought sea life and vibrant colors into their wedding scape.   


Not only was the deep blue sea present, the not-so-typical flower arrangements (who wants typical now ‘a days?) from PB Blossom gave the tables extra depth. The use of ceramic pots gave the daises, roses and lilies a chance to have their own spotlight.


Heather and Rob were married outside with the water behind them at Ellen Browning Scripps Park, right across the street from La Jolla Cove Suites. Adore Wedding Design placed bamboo straw fans near the ceremony area, making sure guests were comfortable while the sea loving couple said their I do’s.


It was a great pleasure to have Heather & Rob share this special day with us and we wish them all the best in the years to come!


Rooftop venue seemlessly transformed from ceremony to reception

We recently had the pleasure of hosting the gorgeous wedding of Jo Jo and Carl on the rooftop. Their wedding was certainly one to remember! Jo Jo handmade 1,000 origami cranes that adorned the chuppa as well as the centerpieces, they were also floating above the cake which was provided by Sweet Cheeks Baking Company. This beautiful bamboo chuppa was provided by Rustic Urban Events.


Jo Jo and Carl really personalized their event with each detail, we especially loved the surfboard which served as the guest book. Guests were provided with markers and signed their names right on the board!

The farm tables provided by Rustic Urban Events served as beautiful head tables, which were decorated with Manzanita tree branches and bright yellow floral arrangements from ArtQuest Flowers and Gifts.


Lounge Appeal provided furniture for a lounge area that was set up near the dance floor, with lighting and draping floating above the entire space. After enjoying a delicious meal provided by Continental Catering, guests moved to the dance and lounge area where flip flops were provided, allowing them to dance in comfort to the music played by Tim Altbaum Productions.


The guest tables, white chivari chairs, dance floor, and lighting were provided by Raphael’s Party Rentals, our favorite party rental company in San Diego! We were so happy to have Melissa Reinke of Sweet Blossom Weddings on site, Melissa assisted Jo Jo and Carl in planning all the details for their fabulous wedding and reception and was here to make sure their special day went just as planned! Thank you Jo Jo and Carl, we were thrilled to host your wedding and reception and can’t wait to see you again on your anniversary!


Congratulations Brooke and Andrew!

Over Labor Day Weekend La Jolla Cove Suites was the proud host of Brooke and Andrew’s wedding ceremony and reception. The rooftop was transformed into a beautiful space with succulents and gold and white decorations.brookandrew-rev

Something we don’t see often on the rooftop is banquet style seating and we were very excited that Brooke and Andrew went outside of the box to design their reception space. Using 8’ tables they created a large banquet table that stretched from one end of the rooftop to the other. The tables were topped with wooden boxes holding succulents. We especially loved the table runner that spanned the length of the tables. We thank Brooke and Andrew for choosing La Jolla Cove Suites to host their special day and wish them many years of happiness!

Another Beautiful Wedding- Congratulations Dana and Trevor


This weekend we were honored to host Dana and Trevor’s wedding and reception on the rooftop of La Jolla Cove Suites. The weather was excellent and the blue water was the perfect backdrop for such a beautiful wedding. The couple chose Adelaide’s  to provide their flowers which adorned their chuppa.


The Abbey Catering provided a package deal that included white kites which floated above their guests during the ceremony.


We loved their use of succulents in tiny mason jars as place card holders! The couple provided lids for the jars and takeout style boxes so guests were able to take their succulents home with them at the end of the night. The rustic watering can and burlap sash across the table tied into their theme very nicely.


Dana and Trevor scattered pillows throughout the rooftop on the lamp posts, adding color and flair to their reception décor, while also providing comfortable seating for their guests. They also made sure to incorporate a very important part of their lives by including their dog as their ring bearer, we just loved his yellow bowtie!

The wedding and reception went perfectly from start to finish and everybody had a wonderful time. We wish Dana and Trevor many years of happiness together and we can’t wait to see them next year for their anniversary!

San Diego’s temperate climate beckons many brides and grooms to tie the knot outside. The rooftop of La Jolla Cove Suites offers a location with a breathtaking panoramic view in the heart of the village of La Jolla. With capacity of 225 people, the space can accommodate an engagement party, ceremony, reception, dance floor with a DJ or live band, and more. The hotel works with a variety of outstanding, experienced, and creative preferred vendors. Dedicated wedding planners assure that the day of the event runs beautifully. Ultimately, the rooftop is a blank canvas on which wedding dreams come to life.

La Jolla Cove Suites Wedding and Reception


La Jolla Cove Suites was the site of Sunday’s beautiful wedding ceremony and reception. The couple chose a clean, classic look of silver and white for their reception tables, each accented with brightly colored centerpieces for a pop of spring color. The centerpieces were ringed with a thick band of teal blue ribbon that smartly tied in the azure backdrop of ocean and sky, as well as the hotel’s signature color.


Their adorable cake was provided by Flour Power, the cake table carried the color theme of the wedding, and was ringed in gems and flower petals; the silver cake utensils were bejeweled.

The wedding ceremony featured a photo booth from The Abbey Catering, as well as trunks full of photo props, and a photo album for guests to leave the second copy of their picture strip for the bride and groom. We’re sure the couple delighted in taking the album with them at the end of the night for an immediate glimpse of some of the wedding fun.

We at La Jolla Cove Suites certainly wish the two of you all of that and more! Thank you for celebrating your special day with us.
