Have you tried to envision your wedding and wondered what the day would be like? Do you have a clear vision down to the color of the bridesmaid’s dresses and even the perfectly designed bouquet? Or are you looking to bring on the right professional wedding vendors to lend their own talents and expertise?
No matter how concrete your vision is, the fun starts during the planning phase. During this time, one of the most important decisions is choosing the right venue. It’s important to select a location that reflects your personality  couple, and feels like a warm and inviting place for your guests.

With this in mind, a harbor view wedding is one of the most romantic weddings you can have. The view of the San Diego harbor alone is mesmerizing and calming, setting the perfect backdrop for the wedding. It gives the sense of a paradise vacation, and the feeling of a ‘getaway’ right here in town. The boats docked in the water, especially at sunset, are a perfect setting for wedding photos, and the entire atmosphere is sure to impress your guests. Even those who know San Diego well are unlikely to have experienced a harbor wedding like this!

Harbor View Wedding in San Diego

San Diego is known for its beautiful beaches, bays, and waterfronts. So, it’s no surprise that the San Diego harbor offers stunning views for weddings. With San Diego’s gorgeous weather all year around, you cannot go wrong with a wedding here. Weddings on the harbor are stunning and can be held day or night, to match the vibe you are going for.

If you are thinking about a more casual and tropical event, then we suggest holding your event during the daytime. This way, you can enjoy boats cruising in and out, along with clear skies on most days. If you picture a classic wedding, then hold your wedding at sunset and into the night. This way, the lights in the harbor will create a whimsical and dreamy setting that feels like a romantic scene from a movie.

Harbor Wedding Benefits

In addition to stunning views and great weather, harbor view weddings are great for accommodating out of town guests. They are even special to those in-towners who want to play tourist. If you have guests coming in from out of town, here are some of the things they can enjoy while here for your wedding:

  • USS Midway Museum — this beautiful and historic aircraft carrier is docked at the Navy Pier on the Embarcadero and is the most visited ship museum in the world. Particularly if your guests are land locked most of the year, this is something they won’t want to miss! The Midway highlights San Diego’s rich military history while providing breathtaking views of the waterfront.
  • San Diego bayfront — the bay front is home to 20 beautiful parks, spanning 250 acres across San Diego’s shoreline. There are bike trails, playgrounds, places to picnic and more. Out of town visitors can escape the hustle and bustle and enjoy what San Diego has to offer.
  • Petco Park — the beautiful ballpark, which is home to San Diego Padres, offers behind the scenes tours of the downtown facility. If it’s normal baseball season, out of town guests may be able to catch a game in this beautiful stadium!
