An Intimate Affair in the Heart of La Jolla, CA

Amanda and Mike, exchanged their wedding vows at the historical Grande Colonial Hotel in the heart of La Jolla, CA. Having only twenty-six guests attending the wedding, the Grande Colonial was the perfect choice.  There is no venue I love more for an intimate wedding. The hotel has a wonderful mix of old world elegance and modern flair, and when mixed with the location in the heart of the village, the incredibly gracious staff, and world class food (9-10 restaurant provides the multiple course meals served at all of the Grand Colonial's events), an experience there is unmatchable.

An Intimate Affair in the Heart of La Jolla, CAWe created a long royal-like table for dinner to give it an intimate setting. The four-course meal and personal toasts were all the entertainment that the event needed.  It was a sweet affair! Whether you want to save money or create an affair where you actually talk to all of your guests, you can never go wrong with going small.  A wedding with only 50 (or fewer) of your closest friends and family can be as meaningful as (and often more than) a larger event.  Don't apologize for going small--just "go big" as you do it!
