If you know me, you know I love modern and urban wedding venues. Unfortunately, San Diego doesn’t have very many of those. That is absolutely why I love the Marina 5 Penthouse wedding venue that’s managed by Venuelust. It’s in Little Italy and features tons of natural light and breathtaking views of the cityscape and of the water. Best suited for guest counts of 70 or fewer, the Marina 5 Penthouse is perfect for modern couples looking to host an intimate urban wedding.

Let’s go ahead and head straight to the back of the space, which is currently furnished with this swanky bachelor lounge that is removable for events. Little Italy Marina 5 Penthouse Wedding Venue | Modern Urban San Diego Venue, Cavin Elizabeth Photography
When you turn back around toward the private elevator, this is a great look at the overall atmosphere. The penthouse is a very long rectangle split into a few different areas by the staircase and the courtyard.

To the left of the staircase, there is a private, open air courtyard where you could easily place a bar for cocktail service or use the bar inside the kitchen, which can be completely hidden with curtains if it intended for food prep or storage.
