Publisher’s Picks 2020


Best Urban Appeal


Luce Loft

Just a few blocks east of the Gaslamp Quarter, a historic converted Carnation Dairy Factory, specializes in hosting events looking for that Urban Vibe. No need for stuffy here, open or cocktail style receptions seems to fit well with the high arching barrel ceiling, stained concrete floors, large windows, and poured concrete walls all make for a modern picture perfect venue.

Dena’s input: “Wow this space is wonderful and the sky’s the limit of what you can do with this venue. We are excited for the owner to open another great venue in Little Italy, opening at the beginning of 2020 ”

Harbor View Loft

bride, groom, boats


Expansive views of the San Diego Harbor, Marina, Coronado Bridge, and twinkling city lights, this is perfect if a view is what you are looking for. It features a wraparound balcony, rooftop ceremony & cocktail hour area and panoramic windows, so as the sun sets you can take in the beauty of America’s finest city. Offering all-inclusive menus and bar packages, Harbor View Loft makes your urban wedding planning easy.

Dena’s input: “Nice bright and light wonderful venue with spectacular views from every side”

Rustic and Romantic

with an Urban Vibe

From the start, Lydia and Gene knew they wanted their wedding to be intimate and true to themselves. They also wanted to host the wedding as a way to celebrate with their loved ones and thank them for the role they’ve played in their lives.  Their wedding was rustic and romantic in decor, but located downtown, so it still had an urban vibe that fit them well as a couple.
