The perfect wedding deserves the perfect location.

San Diego is America’s Finest City and deservedly so. With so many breathtaking views around the county it’s hard to pick a favorite.

This might make it tough for couples, gay and straight, who are getting married to decide on a venue to pledge their everlasting love, but there is one place that incorporates everything San Diego has to offer along with the amenities couples need in order to plan a successful event.

In other rural parts of the country, same-sex couples are coming up against resistance from establishments who feel having a same-sex wedding at their venue is against their religious beliefs.

Luckily in California, we are most likely not going to experience such prejudice, therefore our options for same-sex weddings are seemingly infinite.

One such place that welcomes all who are looking for acceptance, convenience and inclusivity is the Bahia Resort Hotel.

This beautiful property owned by Evans Hotels is situated right on Mission Bay with gorgeous views of the water and accommodations that can handle even the longest of guest lists.

Couples can pick from a wide selection of ceremony locations whether it be a bay ceremony, gazebo/pond ceremony or beneath a beautiful pavilion.

There is even an option to exchange your vows on one of the two historic sternwheelers, The William D. Evans or the Bahia Belle.

One of the things that makes Bahia Resort unique is the classic Mission Bay Ballroom, a spectacular chandeliered reception venue reminiscent of the grand ballrooms of yesteryear.

Views from this space allow guests to peer out over San Diego’s coast high above the landscape, and on days during the summer months enjoy the fabulous fireworks display from Sea World.

Another great aspect of this resort is its proximity to Mission Beach. Guests can walk dockside through the private beach and in minutes enjoy fresh food, cocktails and even ride the historic Giant Dipper at Belmont Park.

As mentioned before, there are two sternwheelers that dock inside the resort. One, The Bahia Belle, takes evening trips across the bay to its sister location The Catamaran.

This short journey is enhanced by cocktails, a DJ and calming views of the surrounding bay. A roundtrip journey averages about an hour, just enough time to take in the best things about Southern California.

Brides and Grooms are also able to book full-sized suites complete with kitchenettes, large living rooms, a private patio and simple access to the beach.

With its all-inclusive packages, the Bahia Resort is also a great place for couples to renew their vows, especially if they already live in San Diego.

Having the venue so close to home, is a plus and takes the guess work out of having to provide entertainment for visiting friends and relatives.

Bahia offers guests boats, bicycles and other on-the-bay diversions

The Bahia Resort is an example of allowing a world-class venue help you in the process of preparing your wedding.

From the charm of the property to the inclusive nature of the staff, the resort lessens the need to add more to your to-do list, but rather takes some of the stress away like a giant helpful bridesmaid or best man.
