I love the Museum Of Contemporary Art La Jolla as a San Diego wedding venue location for a few reasons. Mostly because of the unique space, always interesting art (even though I graduated with a degree in biology/chemistry I took art all through college and consider art one of my main gifts/talents in life), and that I am only a few miles away so it makes for a short drive!
Today’s wedding consisted of a three different areas to set equipment and lighting up in. I first provided a battery powered speaker for the ceremony down at “The Wedding Bowl” (no electricity) which is located on the grass overlooking the cliffs and ocean. Amazing views! We had a violinist who played along with my music. She also played the violin at the bride’s parent’s wedding many years ago so it was a personal moment for everyone.
Guests then moved to the Coast Room and Miles Terrace where I had a small set of equipment for music and 5 uplights to add some color and light once the sun went down. After cocktail hour guests went upstairs to the Axline Court for the reception. The couple’s unique wedding theme and inspiration tonight was “Indonesian spice” so there were lots of earthy colors, small woven baskets as favors, wood, and candles. I provided 16 amber uplights for this space that went extremely well with the linens, candles, and artwork currently in the museum.
Dinner was served family style which many of the guests enjoyed. It seems like this is becoming a San Diego wedding trend lately as I see it more and more often. It was something a little different that you don’t see at every wedding. After all of the important dances we kicked things off with the Hora and as you can see below every guest joined in on the fun!
Dancing continued from there for the rest of the night. We took a small break for cake cutting where small (delicious) cupcakes were passed out. We played a huge assortment of dance music for the rest of the evening. The dance floor was packed and everyone had a great time (see photos below)!
