Soledad Club Wedding, San Diego

Want a fun San Diego wedding venue that has a beautiful property surrounded by tropical gardens, a large house ready to be used however you wish, overlooking the ocean?  Then say, “hello” to the Soledad Club.   Eco Caters was on hand to help Patrick and Maria take advantage of this exciting San Diego event space.

Soledad club wedding venue San Diego Wedding Photographer Shana Siler of Siler Photography San Diego Wedding catering caterer Eco Caters all organic wedding local catering san diego wedding coordinator - 08Our San Diego wedding catering team not only catered our popular all-organic cuisine for Patrick and Maria’s wedding, we were also their San Diego wedding coordinator.  Our clients love the convenience and simplicity of only having to remember one phone number when planning their wedding, and its Emily Brune’s at our San Diego branch, Eco Caters.

Emily of our San Diego wedding catering company sat down with Patrick and Maria and went over everything with them, so that their San Diego wedding would turn out just as they had dreamed it to be.  Here’s the bride in her own words on the day:

 “We had the best experience with Eco Caters, everyone loved the food and Emily, Lauren, Adam, and all the servers were fantastic!”

Following a tear jerking ceremony over looking the San Diego coast line, attendees were offered some savory appetizers during cocktail hour:  A homemade hummus trio with cucumber yoghurt, mixed olives, and warm flatbread.  Our chefs also prepared three different kinds of fresh salsa, with Organic tortilla chips, and guacamole.

A big thank you to Shana Siler of Siler Photography for allowing us to share these wonderful wedding photos with all of you.  She was so much fun to work with and we look forward to running into her again at our next encounter!
