About The Wedding Bowl

Although San Diego is a popular wedding location, not many may be aware of the existence of The Wedding Bowl at Cuvier Park.

It is a rounded patch of grass that is situated five feet below the street level on the Western side of Coast Boulevard, overlooking the La Jolla coastline.

Indeed, this small, lush area will make you feel like you are stepping into a kind of wedding oasis.

Planning your wedding here is simple as nature will make your location picture-perfect.

The green grass on the ground is contrasted by the deep blue of the Pacific Ocean, and all this beautiful scenery is accentuated by beautiful sunrises or sunsets.

The La Jolla beach itself, a mere few steps from The Wedding Bowl, and the Whale View Point provide great spots for the newlyweds and their wedding guests to take elegant wedding photos with the sunset or possibly with a few whales in the backdrop.

If you want the breathtaking views of a beach wedding but don’t want to get sand between your toes, The Wedding Bowl is the location to book.

With its unique position, The Wedding Bowl affords couples privacy that is rare in outdoor weddings.
