Adap-Garcia Wedding 10/18/19

We cannot begin to describe how amazing Estancia is. When we first started looking for venues for our destination wedding, things were so overwhelming. Estancia was the first venue we visited and after viewing numerous others.... we knew nothing compared to its Hacienda vibe and beauty. Both the Olive Lawn and Garden Courtyard are beautifully filled with luscious landscape and greenery, perfect for outdoor events. Their Grande Room is a perfect space for a smaller wedding with an indoor/outdoor feel. We love the hardwood floor and the patio space in that room.

The service was above par! Maddie at the front desk was always so sweet, thoughtful, and welcoming. She even gave us the sweetest card on our arrival for our wedding week! Even on our one year anniversary visit, she remembered us and made it a point to make us feel so welcomed back!

Sara East was our events manager. She was so spectacular to work with. She is so approachable, sweet, and knowledgeable. Every visit to the venue, we were greeted with the warmest smile and even the most delicious cheese plate! She was great during our wedding planning, food tasting, and especially during the day of the wedding.

Sara even worked with my husband recently to surprise me with a recreation of our wedding menu. We celebrated our 1 year anniversary enjoying a private four-course dinner. Henry, our server was so friendly and attentive during our dinner and Chef Vincent’s meal was divine.

Sean was the best bartender at Estancia! He remembered us from our wedding week and just added to the experience. When Sean creates a drink you witness someone who takes pride in his craft and service. Amazing drinks EVERY time!

During the wedding planning, we were fortunate to meet Pimm who helped craft our wedding specialty cocktail—pineapple jalapeño margarita.

The food served at our wedding was ridiculously delicious. Our families and guests voiced so many compliments on the presentation and taste.

Being surrounded by our family and friends on our wedding day was perfect and Estancia made it 100 times better!

Estancia La Jolla will ALWAYS feel like a home away from home.

The wedding of our dreams

I don't even know where to begin about this incredible venue. Months back when my then fiancé & I were touring venues, we instantly knew Estancia La Jolla was the place we envisioned ourselves getting married. Megan Meachum gave us our first tour & I cannot explain how helpful she was in our wedding-planning process. From answering countless emails, to attending our menu tasting & even being present on our wedding day, our wedding wouldn't have happened without her. The entire staff at Estancia La Jolla was so kind & helpful, we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Our wedding day was everything we could've dreamt of & if you're able to have your dream day there, we couldn't recommend it more.
