San Diego Wedding Venues

The Star of India is a San Diego icon–everyone recognizes it.  A lot of us spent the night aboard it as kids during an educational overnight program, or attended a friend’s birthday party or a corporate event.

Star of India Event Venues

The Star of India is an exciting and unique event venue.  Walking along the Embarcadero, you’ve seen her sails and you’ve heard our pirates running about but you may not know how beautiful she can be for weddings!

We do specialty weddings and receptions ranging from nautical, tropical, island beach, and romantic, to anything else you can think of!  Want more details?  Call us at 619-234-9153 ext 102.

Wedding Review By Liz & Tim

Hi Warren!

This email has taken me way to long to write but I just couldn’t find the perfect words to thank you for all of your help with our wedding! And then I realized…those words don’t exist. Our wedding was way to perfect for any words…and it’s all because of you.

Thank you so much for everything! All of our guests loved the ship and they were very happy that they could stay longer and go and explore the other ones!

I’m in the process of printing some pictures and also making some photobooks but in the mean time here’s a link to the photographers website and the galleries…

THANK YOU again (can’t say it enough!)

Wedding Review by Sarah Castille Wyer

I had a December wedding on the Berkeley and could not have been happier!  It was more beautiful than I imagined it could be and all of my guests had a great time.  I was approached multiple times by wedding guests with praise concerning my choice of venue.  The Berkeley is gorgeous in the day, at night, in any light.  The whole experience was magical and I will never forget the Berkeley or the wonderful coordinator, Jim, who made my big day much less stressful.  Thank you very much. ♥  –Sarah Castille Wyer

Plan Your 2013 Party in Advance

Hello San Diego!

Happy 2013!  As the New Year begins, so does the planning for all of the upcoming parties, weddings, meetings, and receptions.  We know it takes a lot of time and effort to select the perfect venue, caterer, DJ, florist, etc.  That’s why we wanted to make sure you know that the Maritime Museum is one of the MOST flexible venues in San Diego.

We offer multiple event packages ranging from just the venue (one of our unique ships) or everything you need to throw an outrageous party (venue, caterer, DJ, florist, photographer, photo booth, and live entertainment).  The most important person in the event planning process is YOU!  If you can dream it–we can make it a reality.

Want to bring your own caterer–great!  Want us to plan out an elegant meal for you–no problem!  Not only do we offer it all in terms of event services, we also provide you with an event coordinator to ease you through the planning process.

Still not convinced?  Come see our ships for yourself–we promise it’s an experience you’ll never forget!

Or you can call 619-234-9153 ext. 102 to set up a meeting with one of our event coordinators!

Client Review by Nicki Deines

Hi, Jim,
Mathew and I wanted to thank you again! We had an absolutely perfect night and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves (even with the hiccup regarding Dominic). The Berkeley looked beautiful and we couldn’t be happier!  Everyone loved the food and said it was one of the best weddings they had been to. So hats off to you!
We will be sure to spread the word about you and The Berkeley!
Are there any loose ends we need to tie up? Anything that might have been left behind?
