Our wedding was perfect and magical in every single way and it completely exceeded every one of our (very high) expectations. So much of this had to do with the gorgeous venue — we cannot tell you how many people commented on what a beautiful setting we chose. As you learned, my dad is a major critic when it comes to architecture and venues and he thought that it couldn’t have been more perfect and beautiful. Rose & Billy 9-29-12

Choosing the La Jolla Women’s Club for our wedding turned out to be a better choice than we could have ever imagined. Our guests raved about the venue and our pictures were exquisite. We were looking for an intimate ceremony site, so the side garden was the perfect option for us. We also loved that the guests did not have to drive to more than one location. We were able to have the ceremony, cocktail hour, reception and take pictures all in different locations on the grounds. We also loved that our guests could step out of the reception for a walk around the grounds as they pleased. Even though the LJWC is in the heart of La Jolla, the club is completely private from people walking by. Our guests loved staying in La Jolla for the weekend and appreciated being able to walk to the club from their hotels. We could not he happier with how everything turned out. Sharlene was so helpful along the way and answered all of our questions. She helped us make the day into our dream wedding. I wish we could do it all over again. Jen & Joe 4-21-12
“The Village Garden Club of La Jolla rented the La Jolla Woman’s Club for an afternoon tea following a floral designer program at Sherwood Hall across the street. At every point of contact everyone associated with the Woman’s Club was friendly and helpful. In the weeks prior to our event, several of my subcommittee chairs individually contacted Sharlene and visited the location. I had hope they would work through me so that we would not be disruptive. However, Sharlene took this all in stride and responded to all of our needs and requests. The day of the event, we were able to set up the room early so that our volunteers could attend the program. The main room, the side rooms and the out of doors space were all utilized. Everyplace responded to the floral decor of our theme. Our 300 guests moved easily around the space and found attractive, comfortable seating. We could not have been more pleased with our experience and we are hoping to repeat the rental for this event next March”. Ann Craig, Co-chair Meet the Masters 3-30-12
“I want to thank you so, so much for your help in making the celebration of our daughter’s wedding such a wonderful success. We enjoyed every minute of the festivities, and your constant attention to making sure that everything went smoothly was very much appreciated. And so many of our guests commented on the beauty of the venue – it is set up so perfectly for a wedding! I’ll definitely recommend the Woman’s Club to our friends!” Nora 12-18-2011

The Club was so beauitifully landscaped and the layout was amazing. The staff was wonderful to work with and very helpfull in the planning process. Thank you for making our Wedding Day magical and a day we will always remember!.”

“Thank you for everything; the night was fabulous!” Stephanie 10-15-2011
“From the first day we walked into the La Jolla Women’s Club Vince and I fell in love with it immediately! The romantic building structures, bushes, shrubbery and flowers, water fountain and vine covered lattice arches all made it the perfect venue for us.
Through the process of planning we were in touch with Sharlene whether it be to ask a question or get advice and she was so warm and helpful every time. We even spent over an hour with her days before the wedding mapping out the floor plan. Never once did we feel like a pain in the butt with all of our changes She even let us come the day before and drop off our cakes/cupcakes and decorations because there was no event scheduled that night which was a HUGE help.
The day of the wedding we used the bridal and gentlemen’s suites to get ready. It was so comfortable and intimate for myself and my bridesmaids as I am sure it was equally as fun for the guys. Sharlene always had a helping hand for us that day making sure everything was going as planned for us. I honestly think I could not have had a better day.
The LJWC is absolutely gorgeous and so very accommodating. I cannot imagine a more perfect or beautiful day!
Thank you LJWC” Sarah 9-24-2011
Currently in sunny Cabo San Lucas on honeymoon so I will keep brief but everything was great and thank you so much! I’m sure one weekend soon we will come by and formally thank you as well. Your advice was great and the club was everything we had hoped…..would recommend to anyone! THANKS! Mike & Kristy 9-5-2011
“I had my wedding here in September. Sharlene and her team were so helpful and very professional. We got our whole deposit back the week after the wedding. The venue is so beautiful. I loved that it was so convenient to hotels and restaurants in the village. We had our ceremony in the south garden, cocktail hour on the north patio, the reception indoors in the main space, and a photobooth area in the side room. I loved that there were distinct spaces. The gardens are so beautiful. Our pictures turned out really well.
Its a bummer that the noise ordinance forces weddings to be over by 10, but that’s not the fault of the venue. And with such close proximity to bars and restaurants, an after party is easy to do.” Kelly 9-3-2011
“This venue really set the stage for the wedding of my dreams. The grounds are beautiful and lush and the flowers are absolutely gorgeous. I wanted a garden set wedding and the La Jolla Woman’s Club was the perfect place.
I worked with Sharlene and she was very professional and accommodating, she even allowed our dog to be a part of the ceremony! We decided not to hire a wedding planner or day of planner, but with the help of Sharlene and Gina (Culinary Concepts), it was not necessary. Jessica 8-21-2011
“Thank you for the prompt refund and for the great service before, during and after Anat and Doug’s wedding. All guests had a great time and the newly weds loved the venue and the whole wedding. I have two more children and will definitely consider Woman’s Club when the time for another wedding will come (I hope soon). You, as our main point of contact provided great service and we are all very happy with the wedding, party and whole coordination.” Nurit 8-14-2011
“I had the LJWC as my wedding venue last month, and I have to say, Sharlene was a superb help in the whole process. She was very knowledgeable about everything, cautioning me on several things I had overlooked and helping me with others. She is super nice and also very reasonable.
On top of it, I fell in love with this venue when I saw it. It has the quaintness and old charm of a victorian house, but the elegance of a country club, adorned with beautiful courtyards and flowers all around. I’m so happy with my venue, and I think it did a lot to make my wedding the magical day I’ve always wanted. I would recommend it to any wedding couple with good taste.
I got my security deposit within days after my wedding and Sharlene made follow up emails to make sure I got my deposit back. They are a historical site, so I respect the rules in the contract, which are not at all unreasonable for them to maintain the beautiful state of the club. I have great confidence that anyone who books this club would be happy.” Keira 8-5-2011
” This venue is so beautiful on it’s own, but you can dress it up too. The garden surrounding the actual building is gorgeous and the perfect setting for an intimate, outdoor wedding. We had about 100 people and it still felt intimate! The inside of the building was just as incredible. We had so much fun planning because it really is a blank canvas inside. Not to say it’s plain, but the layout doesn’t dictate where you have to put what. You can be as creative as you like. I would highly recommend the Woman’s Club for a wedding, anniversary or birthday celebration. It’s perfect”. Andrea 4-15-2011
” My husband and I could not have asked for a more beautiful wedding at the La Jolla Woman’s Club. We had a wonderful experience working with everyone at LJWC and would highly recommend this venue. The grounds are one-of-a-kind; our guests were raving about how much they loved the unique, peaceful, and historic atmosphere. Thank you, LJWC, for affording us a day that we will treasure forever.” Stephanie 4-9-2011
