La Jolla Ballroom

This elegant, indoor wedding venue was taken to the next level by a full renovation completed in January 2014. The project included major upgrades to the lighting, and custom-designed decor and furnishings throughout the main ballroom and pre-function areas. The walnut flooring in the pre-function area, custom-woven wool carpets from England, and spectacular wrought iron chandeliers specially fabricated by local artisans make create the perfect ambience for this La Jolla wedding venue. The color palette, based on a combination of light, classic neutrals is strikingly offset by rich woods in the furnishings, bronzed and gilded metals, and antiqued mirror panels positioned to reflect the warmth and sparkle of the lighting. Full height damask draperies flank the French doors to the private lawn and covered entry loggia, the romantic glow of lanterns leading the way. Bird of paradise palms in large terracotta pots bring in an element of the lush outdoor landscaping, while jewel-tone pops of color in the artwork and accent pieces add to the overall richness of the space. The grandeur of the La Jolla Ballroom is the perfect complement to the Garden Courtyard.
