Waterfront Mission Bay Hotel One of Three San Diego Hotels to Make the List

Paradise Point, a 44-acre private island on Mission Bay, has been named as a winner in The Knot’s “Best of Weddings 2013” round-up of the top San Diego wedding venues.

Selected and voted on by brides and readers of the influential wedding magazine and website, Paradise Point was one of only three San Diego hotels and the only Mission Bay venue to make the list.  Other award-winning San Diego wedding venues include the Loews Coronado and Estancia La Jolla, as well as nine local wedding purveyors from Paradise Point’s preferred vendor list. 

According to The Knot, “Best of Weddings 2013” provides a “by brides, for brides” guide to the top wedding locations and professionals across the country, and is a must-have when it comes to selecting the “best-of-the-best” wedding resources. This year, winners were required to have outstanding ratings from the Better Business Bureau in addition to high satisfaction scores from brides who held their wedding ceremony and reception in San Diego, and only the top 4% of local vendors were awarded. 

Paradise Point was honored for its variety of unique San Diego wedding ceremony and reception venues scattered across its tropical grounds. The hotel features over 60,000 square feet of event space in the form of lush gardens and lagoons, waterfront lawns, beaches, and elegant ballrooms with dramatic bay views that can accommodate weddings up to 600.  Bungalow-style rooms, an award-winning spa, and waterfront dining complete this coastal retreat offering resort-style comfort for both brides and grooms and their guests.

"Paradise Point’s idyllic island setting on Mission Bay offers the look and feel of a destination wedding that is secluded and tropical, yet convenient in both price and placement in the heart of one of Southern California’s most exciting cities,” said David Hall, General Manager of Paradise Point. 

Paradise Point also aims to make the planning process more convenient with wedding packages that handle all the essentials but still leave plenty of room for personalization.  For brides seeking to say “I do” with a Mission Bay beach wedding on the island this spring, the award-winning venue is currently offering a discounted package and $250 off its array of waterfront San Diego wedding backdrops.
