Scripps Seaside Forum

Venues

One of the great, quintessential Southern California venues is the Scripps Seaside Forum at Scripps Institute of Oceanography in La Jolla Shores.  Since all beaches in California are public by law, it can be tough to find an oceanfront venue that has some privacy and doesn’t have the unwashed masses walking past your wedding in their bikinis and wet suits.  Scripps Seaside Forum (and it’s older sister venue, the charming Martin Johnson House) are unique in that they’re on the tops of cliffs that overlook the ocean.  So anyone walking on the beach or in the ocean is way below you and not looking into your wedding.  You actually have privacy and a fantastic Pacific ocean setting — quite hard to find.   Plus the venue is brand new;  it opened about 2 years ago.  It’s a very contemporary building with a huge wall of glass looking out to the ocean.  It has a great lawn between the building and the edge of the cliff, so that’s a great place to have your ceremony and initial cocktail reception.

Although it’s brand new, it’s no secret.  I understand it’s almost completely booked for the next year and a half, so you really need to plan way ahead to use this venue.  But, of course, there are always cancellations, so you should contact them anyway just to see if something’s available.  We booked one bride and when we asked how they chose their wedding date, she said it was the only date available at Scripps Seaside Forum that year.  Here’s a link to info about the venue:  http://www.sio.ucsd.edu/About/Venue_Rentals/Scripps_Forum/

The last two weekends have featured a weddding cake from Twiggs at the Seaside Forum!  Our picture from two weekends ago was sort of washed out by the sun, but the one from this past weekend turned out well.  Karilyn wanted a contemporary cake in aqua and green that featured the patterns from her very contemporary invitations.  Karilyn and her bridesmaids actually showed up at the site when we were finishing setting up the cake.  That’s rare;  usually I never see the bride.  She seemed thrilled the cake, which makes it all worthwhile.
