The Grand Del Mar

San Diego



A wedding is a rite of passage, filled with family, friends, joy and celebration. Discover an unparalleled romance for your special day at San Diego's premier wedding venue. Reminiscent of a Mediterranean estate and nestled in the storybook setting of the breathtaking Los Peñasquitos Canyon, The Grand Del Mar is the perfect venue to take your first steps toward a forever ever after. With over 20,000 square feet of captivating event space to accommodate any size nuptials, all your wedding dreams—from an intimate gathering to a grand gala—can come true. Surrounding the Moroccan pavilion, the Aria lawn is an open-air locale perfect for sunlit or starlit weddings with views of the pristine golf course and canyon preserve. If you prefer something more intimate and traditional, a chapel featuring beamed ceilings, imported Italian pews, and stained glass accents exudes an old-world charm infused with fairytale romance. For a casual ceremony, get married at the Reflection Lawn, surrounded by a reflecting pool, a gazebo, and the canyon backdrop. A festive celebration awaits you whether you choose to hold your reception in a classic chandelier ballroom or a terrace complete with hand-stenciled ceilings and inviting stone fireplaces. The possibilities are truly endless at The Grand Del Mar!
