    Best Venue Ever!

    At the beginning of the pandemic we had another venue that canceled our contract in the middle of the year. We were desperately looking for another venue just 6 months before the wedding. La Jolla Ballroom helped us tremendously due to the consequences. They were able to accommodate everything that we wished for and More!
    Betsy and Glorymar were wonderful, they really went above and beyond for us to have the wedding of our dreams.
    The food was amazing and the drinks too!
    We are so glad that we found La Jolla Ballroom, everything turned out better than expected. Thank you so much we are completely happy with your service.

    Unforgettable Wedding!

    We got engaged and had no experience with wedding planning. After narrowing down a handful of venue choices, we visited two. The first was in Boca Raton, the second was La Jolla in Coral Gables. There’s a reason there wasn’t a third venue to visit.
    When we first arrived at La Jolla we were truly impressed with the overall feel of the venue. It’s located in an historic building and it’s simple elegance shines through.

    We were blessed to work with Yanel, whom we felt an instant connection with. We relied heavily on Yanel for her input and wealth of suggestions for other vendors such as florists, cake bakers, DJs, musicians, officiants, and photographers…in fact as time went on Yanel even provided contact information for makeup artists and hairstylists too.

    LaJolla made the planning flow seamlessly. We picked our table settings and decorations through a related vendor. We were able to look at as many table clothes and accessories as needed in order for us to feel comfortable with our selections.

    Yanel’s experience and professionalism proved to be invaluable to us. She was always a text or phone call away. She always provided prompt responses to the little things that popped up.

    Our food tasting was unforgettable. La Jolla offers a vast amount of culinary choices. After settling on our choices we were impressed by the way LaJolla and it’s staff made us feel.

    As our big day was getting closer, Yanel and my wife were in frequent communication. We had our rehearsal the week of the wedding. Again, Yanel put us at ease and patiently explained what we should expect and what we needed to do. We were at ease because of Yanel…that alone is priceless during your wedding week.

    Next up was the big day. I had a sneak peek at the reception hall. Jaw dropping is the best way to describe what I saw. The tables looked exquisite. The bar was nicely stocked and looked like a bar at an exclusive club. The overall charm of LaJolla was everywhere I looked.

    Hours later, I showed up. Many of our guests were seated. The violinist Yanel suggested was playing beautifully. The area the ceremony was being held looked wonderful.
    At this point, Yanel’s help proved invaluable. She made sure we had our boutonnieres and corsages. She ensured my beautiful bride arrived and entered at the precise moment. The entire ceremony was flawless thanks to Yanel.
    We didn’t participate with the cocktail hour, but everyone I spoke to raved about the hors d’oeuvres and drinks. We were busy with photos and once again Yanel assisted us well. She ushered us around the venue with our photographer for some great photos. She also ensured we were fed hors d’oeuvres.

    The entire reception was special. The music and lighting were perfect. The temperature was ideal. No one complained about being too cold or hot. The food was presented the exact same way as it had been during our tasting. The food was delicious.

    I also need to praise the LaJolla staff and servers. No one waited long for drinks from the bar. Water and wine glasses were constantly being refilled throughout the night. When it was finally over, the staff was still as pleasant as they had been from the very start.

    In the end, many of our guests lingered because they had such a great time. Once again, Yanel and the staff were gracious. No one hurried us.

    We categorically recommend LaJolla for your wedding. You will have to look long and hard to find a better overall venue. The personalized service at all stages of our experience cannot be easily duplicated. When you factor in the great value LaJolla offers, you would be wise to have your wedding at LaJolla too!

    We will forever be grateful for Yanel and the entire LaJolla staff! They each played a vital role in making our wedding day special! Thanks LaJolla!
