Catering Cultured Weddings at San Diego New Central Library
Cultured Weddings at the New Central Library
Nothing holds more promise for the future quite like a wedding. And when that wedding ceremony has a backdrop like the glittering waters of the Pacific Ocean and San Diego Bay separated by stately Coronado Island, that union of families looks even more hopeful!
This amazing and often overlooked building has multiple spaces suitable for a variety of special events, but weddings are the most special, especially on weekends. The Shiley Special Events Suite perched at the top of the San Diego Central Library boasts soaring floor to ceiling windows on 3 sides of the main event space, lush carpeting and state of the art dimmable lighting. The ample space allows for plenty of room for moderate sized guest lists, but the offset layout of the room permits ample space for larger parties of over 200 celebrants.
The Epstein Bayview Terrace is a wonderful option as a Wedding Ceremony site with it’s Southern views of San Diego Bay and built-in viewfinders. Just off the main Bayview terrace is a dramatic fenced outcropping over the exposed exterior structure of the building, offering one of the most unique bride and groom photo opportunities in the area!
Coming back through the main dining space leads to the picturesque Woods Family Sunset View Terrace. This larger outdoor space is simply perfect for cocktail hour, with a built-in roll-up service window that is wonderful for Bar Setups or Non-Alcoholic Infused Water Stations. The included unique square belly bars allow for guests to set beverages down, as photo opportunities abound! As the name suggests, this lengthy terrace offers fantastic sunset photos, and many guests thoroughly enjoy taking advantage! They may even be treated to the wholesome sights and sounds of a San Diego Padres home game, or serenaded by a concert at nearby Petco Park! For a truly dramatic moment, many Saturday evenings feature fireworks in the later hours – and the views from the Sunset Terrace and Main Room are spectacular!
Once the main reception gets under way for dinner, the advantages of the larger layout quickly becomes clear – no need for breaking down tables to make room for the dance floor, or packing tables in just a bit too close for comfort. Indeed – even accommodating multiple action food stations, cake table and coffee bar is no problem!
When the lights go down and the dance floor heats up, the cityscape of the San Diego bayfront and lights of the nearby famous Gaslamp Quarter illuminate your guests with a truly memorable reception experience. Treat yourself to a one-of-a-kind wedding experience! The proximity of local dancingl establishments makes continuing the party after-hours a breeze. For a truly unique after-party, inquire with The Abbey Catering about hosting a private after-hours party just minutes from the Library in a brand-new private rental-only club until 2:00am!
The adjacent conference room provides a secure and elegant space for a Bridal Suite for on-site hair, makeup and wardrobe preparations, if needed. Complete with attached restroom, privacy shades and cushy chairs, the space has everything you could need for your wedding preparations!
The variety of spaces and amenities for your guests make weddings with The Abbey Catering at the New Central Library truly unique in San Diego – from breathtaking views to elegant lines, this space is truly one of a kind!
