Weddings at Island Palms

Weddings have begun to fill social calendars for the second half of 2022, with over 2.6 million weddings estimated to take place this year. Since so many happy couples had to delay or reschedule ceremonies and receptions in 2020 and ‘21, there’s a lot of lost time to make up for. Thankfully, Best Western Plus Island Palms is one of San Diego’s most stunning places to exchange “I do”s. Does your wedding require a landmark setting? Take a look at our weddings overview, and start planning your San Diego wedding. 

Why Island Palms?

Our lush property is located on Shelter Island, one of the loveliest areas of the city. In addition to incorporating a number of flexible event spaces, Island Palms also offers outdoor ceremonies overlooking the serene waters of the San Diego Bay marina. Yet, for all of the beauty you’ll find here, what you won’t find is sky-high rates.
