Since opening our doors in 1913, the Grande Colonial hotel has been the legendary standard bearer for unforgettable weddings in La Jolla. Weddings of all shapes and sizes. From the grandest of celebrations to “minimonies”, and destination elopements, generations of families have chosen to share their special day with us. These warm remembrances for past celebrations create a rich sense of anticipation for those celebrations still to come.\r\n\r\nIn addition to the big moment of saying “I Do”, we strive to create memorable wedding experiences that extend well beyond the vows you will exchange. From relaxing by the swimming pool sipping champagne with your wedding party to greeting your guests at a pre-event welcome reception or enjoying a post-wedding brunch, our catering team stands ready to help you plan all the other events and activities surrounding your actual ceremony. Just a few of our specialties include:\r\n\r\nREHEARSAL DINNERS: Whether you are having your wedding ceremony with us or at a nearby location, our award-winning NINE-TEN chefs and catering team will create a custom rehearsal dinner menu paired with the perfect wines – all inspired by our matchless seaside setting.\r\n\r\nWELCOME RECEPTIONS: Wow your families, bridal parties and out-of-town guests from the moment they arrive by hosting a welcome cocktail reception. Choose from a variety of appetizer stations or enjoy a more elegant, tray-passed gathering.\r\n\r\nPOST-WEDDING BRUNCHES: Extend your guests’ celebration with a brunch the following day so they can send you and your new spouse off on your honeymoon in “grande” style! Our variety of indoor and outdoor private dining venues provide the ideal setting for that one final wedding event that will be sure to leave a lasting impression.\r\n\r\nANNIVERSARY PARTIES: Come back to where it all began. Throwing a wedding anniversary party is a great way to let parents, extended family members and special friends know how much they mean to you and how happy you are that they helped you celebrate that special day…whether it be a year later or 10 years later.\r\n\r\nWe look forward to the opportunity to individually customize a package to meet your personal needs, tastes and styles.
