Perk 1:


Craft cocktail lovers can create a signature drink (blackberry-lavender-infused whiskey mule, anyone?) with the help of Estancia La Jolla’s head mixologist. Display the charred oak barrel it was aged in, branded with your name and wedding date, at your reception.

Perk 2:

Explosive Fun

Guests will already be bowled over by this iconic beachside location, but when your customized fireworks display lights up the sky over Hotel Del Coronado, it’ll be a night they’ll never forget.

Perk 3:

Vino Veritas

Couples who say “I do” at Temecula’s Ponte Winery not only get a complimentary night’s stay at the property’s inn, but also a one-year membership to the vineyard’s wine club.

Perk 4:

Special Brew

Suds-loving couples tying the knot at the Sheraton San Diego can craft a signature beer to serve day-of at one of the hotel’s partnering breweries (including Stone, Mother Earth, and Ballast Point).

Perk 5:

Picture Perfect

Very few venues are literally on the water, but get hitched aboard one of Aolani’s yachts or catamarans and you can designate any photo backdrop you want—from the Point Loma cliffs to the lights of downtown.

Perk 6:

Wild Nights

Have your nuptials at the San Diego Zoo, and you can opt to have one of their exotic residents greet your guests during cocktail hour. Couples are also gifted with a one-year pass.

Perk 7:

Snack Attack

Arrive at Green Acre’s get-ready room on your wedding day and you’ll find a food-filled care package to satisfy all your cravings, from gourmet popcorn and Spanish kava to chocolate-covered pretzel bark and local beers.
