Almost every La Jolla native seems to have a cherished memory of a Grande Colonial wedding. Since opening our doors in 1913, the Grande Colonial hotel has been the legendary standard bearer for unforgettable weddings in La Jolla. Weddings of all shapes and sizes. From the grandest of celebrations to “minimonies”, micro-weddings and destination elopements, generations of families have chosen to share their special day with us. These warm remembrances for past celebrations create a rich sense of anticipation for those celebrations still to come.
Perfectly located just steps from the ocean, the Grande Colonial is also within walking distance of popular La Jolla wedding ceremony sites including La Jolla Cove, Ellen Browning Scripps Park and The Wedding Bowl—some of the most enchanting wedding spots in all of Southern California.
For onsite weddings, refined creativity, sophisticated craftsmanship and crisp service blend seamlessly, ensuring that every moment is just how you’ve imagined it. The Grande Colonial’s commanding views of the California coastline and elegant ocean-view wedding facilities beckon brides seeking the intimacy and personalized service of a boutique hotel. During the planning process, you will choose from a variety of indoor and outdoor venues , as well as splendid catering options from the award-winning culinary team at NINE-TEN, our Michelin “Plate Distinction” restaurant. We can also arrange for in-room massage, spa and wellness services for the bride and groom or for your entire wedding party.
At the Grande Colonial La Jolla, we’ve been creating wedding memories and celebrating traditions for over a century.
