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!
La Jolla Cove Suites gave away a free overnight yesterday as The Benny Hollman Band returned to the La Jolla Cove for the La Jolla Concerts By the Sea series. The 15-piece big band is a multiple-year winner of the San Diego Music Awards, and has worked with the Temptations, Tony Bennett, Natalie Cole, Johnny Mathis, Bob Hope, Smokey Robinson, and Steve Allen among others. La Jolla Cove Suites guests had the tough concert options of our rooftop view, their private balconies, or joining the fray just a few steps away. We’ll be giving away more suites, so join in the fun and sign up in the park to be eligible to win.
Thousands of spectators crowded into Scripps Park at La Jolla Cove to watch yesterday’s 4th of July fireworks show. A local tradition for nearly 25 years, the spectacular display is sponsored by the La Jolla Fireworks Foundation, which is supported by La Jolla Cove Suites among other patrons. La Jolla Cove Suites guests had front row seats to the show from their private oceanfront balconies. We also offered a DJ, dancing, cash bar, and unparalleled views of the show from our oceanfront rooftop, as shown in these photos. We wish to thank all of our guests who chose to celebrate the 4th of July at La Jolla Cove Suites. And we wish a very Happy Birthday to the United States of America!

A sure sign of summer, the San Diego Junior Lifeguards spent Monday training at Scripps Park in front of La Jolla Cove Suites. The whole city is proud of this rigorous lifeguarding program, which teaches our youth beach safety, ocean and wave education, area familiarity, first aid and CPR, water rescue techniques, and fitness. Despite the physical and mental demands of the program, each summer session is in hot demand and fills up within hours of its posting. Every session culminates in an (optional) jump off of the Ocean Beach Pier, which always makes local news. Way to go, Kids, we are so proud of you!

La Jolla students enjoy a picnic and games to celebrate the end of the school year at La Jolla Cove’s Scripps Park
Students from La Jolla’s Muirlands Middle School frolic in front of La Jolla Cove Suites at a picnic to celebrate the end of the school year. They enjoyed perfect summer weather, blue skies, and picturesque rolling surf. Today marks the last day of the school year for 132,000 students of the San Diego Unified School District, which includes La Jolla. These kids do have a problem, though: Where do they go on vacation when they could just stay and enjoy a summer in La Jolla? Have a great summer, kids!
