Wedding Celebration at the University Club Atop Symphony Towers

By, July 19, 2012

The University Club is the ideal venue for brides and grooms looking for a luxurious wedding venue in downtown San Diego. Our venue sits on the 34th floor of one of San Diego’s tallest buildings, Symphony Towers. We offer incredible packages, special services, the finest catering, and the most picturesque view you could ask for. It truly is the perfect spot for your perfect wedding ceremony and reception.

This past May, we were honored to host Elyse and Christopher’s beautiful wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception at the University Club, featuring stunning views of the downtown skyline.

The ceremony was held in the Laureate ballroom, which is one of the crown jewels of the clubhouse. The room is highlighted by floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking downtown San Diego. To add intimacy to the ceremony, White Wedding Day Events draped the ballroom with light lilac fabric.  Below are images of the Laureate ballroom before and during the ceremony!

Following the ceremony, the bride and groom walked the streets of the Gaslamp for photos, while guests enjoyed the cocktail hour in the swanky Apollo Lounge. Just before the reception, the couple made a fun entrance into the Lounge, and joined their guests for a drink!

Later, the guests returned to the Laureate ballroom, which was transformed into a gorgeous reception space, with seating for up to 300 guests. While switching the room over from the ceremony, we pulled back the custom draping to change the vibe for the reception. Guests could now enjoy the amazing 360-degree views of San Diego, which includes Balboa Park, the Pacific Ocean, and the Coronado Bridge!
