Portrait Locations at Estancia La Jolla
Portraits tend to be just as important to my couples as the candid moments. Trust me when I say there are no shortages of backdrops at Estancia La Jolla. From utilizing the gardens to the hacienda settings to the open lawns, I could spend hours photographing couples here!
The Olive Lawn
One of the two ceremony sites, the Olive Lawn is a 1,600 square foot lawn that faces a row of trees and a beautiful weathered well. Up to 130 guests may be seated on the lawn for a ceremony, which is always backlit by the sun so it’s lighting is always so soft and beautiful.
Even on overcast days like the one below, the site is still so dreamy and romantic!
The Garden Courtyard
The larger of the two ceremony sites, the Garden Courtyard has double the space of the Olive Lawn. Whether you have a larger guest count or like the idea of being elevated a few steps about your guests, this space would be perfect for your ceremony. On one end you see the white arch and stairs and on the other end, the view looks toward a fountain. The entire courtyard is completely surrounded by trees and guest rooms.
Estancia La Jolla Ballrooms
Depending on your guest count and budget, Estancia La Jolla offers two reception spaces to choose from. The first (pictured below) is the Grande Room, which can hold up to 180 guests. It has textured white walls and mirrors and is a great clean and modern space. The other option is the La Jolla Ballroom that can hold 420 guests and has carpet flooring instead of hardwood.
