Being a part of the weddings and events team at The Lafayette the last three years, I've seen it all, from fun poolside ceremonies, to vintage Hollywood glamour, to spooky candlelit fall decor. Through the whole planning process, I've found my favorite part of weddings is working one-on-one with amazing couples and seeing their special day come to life. Planning a wedding can be stressful, but I enjoy becoming close friends with my couples and go-to gal. There's nothing like watching a couple say their vows and then partying with their friends and family.
Fun Fact: I am a Frenchie Mom to the handsome Benji. If you want to see photos, I'm happy to share. Yes, I'm THAT girl!

The Lafayette Hotel is fantastic! The hotel itself is super vintage and charming! The staff is awesome to work with, very friendly and accommodating! We have photographed a few weddings at the property and have had a lovely experience ever time! We recommend for your wedding venue needs!
What a great company to work with. We highly recommend! Thanks again, Solace Weddings LLC
The Lafayette Hotel is one of our favorite venues to photograph weddings at. It's a historic hotel with its own style and vibe, in very convenient location of San Diego. The best part is, you have one location for getting ready, ceremony and reception, which makes the wedding day free of driving and stress. ;) Taylor, the event coordinator, is super helpful and takes great care of the couples. This is probably one of the best options to hold a unique wedding in the heart of San Diego!
