The California Wedding Experience at La Jolla

La Jolla, CA — What makes a bride the most anxious about her wedding day? The weather? The catering? The location? Her hair? Her dress? Keeping all the relatives entertained? Depending on others to make her dreams a reality? Making it all memorable? With the launch of the ULTIMATE WEDDING COLLECTION’S “California Experience” at the iconic La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla, there is now an antidote to those worries.


For a packaged cost of $1 million, the historic, 112-room oceanfront Southern California resort literally becomes the bridal party’s seaside Mediterranean style villa for the weekend. La Valencia Resort has entertained everyone from Mary Pickford to Madonna, and now yours for up to 200 guests. The hotel’s chef, housekeepers, waiters, concierge, rooms, pool, lounges and restaurants are there for the sole purpose of servicing the wedding, with all the attractions of the area – from shopping to art galleries; from yachting to scuba diving.


Produced by Alchemy Fine Events and La Valencia Hotel, the package includes strategic partnerships with the likes of Net Jets and Uber for bridal party and guest transportation as well as Prestige Motor Sports & Yachts.

La V’s lavish wedding package is the first in a new collection of exclusive destination weddings at iconic hotels in places like: Monaco, Ibiza, St. Tropez, Tuscany and St. Barths.


Included in the package is a Wedding Design Team that is deployed long before the big day, offering
the services of Southern California’s premiere wedding vendors, including: couture bridal gown designers, Hollywood hair and makeup artists, musicians, florists, photographers, videographers and event planners – all with the goal of translating your vision into a customized, one-of-a-kind event.

“We put this package together for the couple who wants effortless luxury,” explains Rita Moore,
La Valencia’s Director of Sales & Marketing. “Our carefully selected design team leverages the art of listening and understanding the bride and groom wishes to the actual execution of a personalized brand for the wedding. From the big picture to the tiniest details –luxury invitations, guest welcome notes, picnic baskets, excursion maps, bespoke furniture, custom place settings; even parting gifts at the farewell brunch, everything will be designed to express your wedding vision. All you’ll need to do is arrive and enjoy.”
