Weddings & Events

In addition to being a ten-minute walk from Moonlight Beach, we’re located just one mile from the San Diego Botanic Garden, which is one of the most popular wedding spots in Encinitas. This means we make it easy to log a little beach time and check out the quirky downtown area before the big event.
