    Gorgeous Views and Delicious Food

    Harbor View Loft was the perfect choice venue for our wedding. It met and exceeded our expectations. The food was all delicious and the staff were on top of everything 120%. It did get toasty inside at the reception (summer wedding), but all the outside space/tables/games meant our guests could walk outside to cool off and look at the view. Overall, we are SO glad we chose this amazing venue for our special day that we will remember for a lifetime. Our guests raved about the food and the views, and I can't wait to see all of our amazing pictures with the water and downtown at sunset as the backdrop. Thank you so much!!!

    Best Catering in San Diego

    Personal Touch Dining is hands down the best catering company in San Diego. Annalisa was AMAZING to work with. They catered our DIY wedding at the San Diego Botanic Garden and it was perfect. The food was delicious and the staff was kind and easy going. They also offer rentals through them. For example, I rented terracotta table runners.

    Personal Touch Dining's reply:

    THANK YOU, Sarah! I am still obsessing over your tablescape and color scheme. I loved working with you and am so thankful that we could be apart of such a fun day.
    xoxo,
    Annalisa

I am always excited when I find out I'm working an event with Personal Touch Dining. The food is fantastic, and as importantly, the service is always wonderful. Thinking as a photographer, they're up to date with styles and trends, and I notice how they keep a low profile with the kitchen and a clean appearance through the event, all adding up to better pictures for you! I highly recommend Personal Touch for your wedding or event.
