The Dream San Diego Waterfront Venue: Harbor View Loft
When my clients ask me about San Diego wedding venues for this year and next, I can’t help but gush about the Harbor View Loft. Not only is Harbor View a dream location for couples looking to provide an intimate San Diego experience for their guests, but it offers jaw-dropping, carefree weddings, built for skyline viewing and waterfront celebrations.
As one of Harbor View’s preferred photographers, I can attest to how stunning and unique this location is. Situated on harbor waters, my brides and grooms get more than a handful of picture perfect backgrounds found nowhere else in the city. Check out Sandeep and Elizabeth’s golden, lily-themed wedding gallery highlights taken in February 2020 to envision what your wedding could look like.
As sailboats glide in and out behind the jetty, the harbor waters resemble glass mirrors. Rows upon rows of boat masts create a mesmerizing illusion of an endless ocean as a backdrop. My newlywed clients practically glow in front of the water’s reflection – just look at Elizabeth and Sandeep’s gorgeous scenery behind their kiss!
Waterfront with skyline
On the other side of the docks is a breathtaking view of San Diego’s cityscape across cerulean waters. Day or night, my clients benefit from the light sea breeze and the sun’s sparkling reflection on the ocean. I had to include a couple of these two lovebirds’ shots, choosing one was too difficult.
Timeless oak tree
The massive oak tree next to the venue is not only picturesque, but symbolizes union, spiritual nourishment, and growth. It’s towering treetop and luscious greenery adds so much perspective and dramatic effect to my clients’ wedding photos. For some reason, almost all my clients just seem to become more comfortable and romantic near this tree, and the shots turn out beautifully every time.
The Venue Itself
As if the location wasn’t prime enough, my clients that have celebrated their wedding day here rave about the value-packed wedding package that Harbor View Loft offers. The venue’s most popular ceremony site is its rooftop. That’s right, your wedding ceremony could feature 360 degree views of one of the world’s most amazing cities, allowing for a private experience interrupted by no one. Cocktail hour can also be held outside under the glow of market lights, where guests can relax and enjoy over popular outdoor games and seating. The Loft has a great indoor reception space with floor to ceiling windows that face San Diego’s skyline, which only gets better to watch as the night goes on. Harbor View Loft also has a world-class event staff, event equipment, and other must-have wedding amenities.
While California slowly starts to climb out of this pandemic, it’s elating to start thinking about the couples and guests who I know will absolutely love everything about the Harbor View Loft. And, of course I can’t wait to get back there and visit the best-in-class team that puts in the upmost effort for every couple that chooses the Loft for the biggest day of their lives.
Shoutout to Elizabeth and Sandeep for their exquisite wedding that felt like it was yesterday…I can’t believe it’s been over a year already!
