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!

Concerts by the Sea Season finale


Sunday, September 1st featured Sue Palmer and her Motel Swing Orchestra, who delighted the crowds at Ellen Browning Scripps Park this Labor Day Weekend. Guests enjoyed the swing music from their balconies at La Jolla Cove Suites, with birds-eye views of musicians and the audience members, some of whom could be seen dancing near the stage. This was the last concert for the season and was a great way to spend part of the holiday weekend!
