I am one happy bride! I had the opportunity to sneak a peek into my ballroom while it was empty for pictures and I was floored! I think I was without words. Everything was absolutely beautiful, everything was executed exactly the way I planned and yet my expectations were far... Read More exceeded. Maria Belen was a pleasure to work with! She was always ready and willing to help, she is genuine and professional. She made sure everything was perfect on my wedding day. Rick Morales, one of La Jolla's vendors, really outdid himself with my flower arrangements. They were jaw-dropping beautiful and wtihout hesitation helped with placing table numbers on the vases. DJ Duni, another vendor from La Jolla, did an amazing job! Absolutely everyone was out of their chairs and dancing by the second song. My husband is American and I an hispanic, with our families combined, the diversity in music was very important. It is evident that DJ Duni is experienced and passionate about his work, he kept my guests on the dance floor all night. Last but not least, I heard excellent reviews from my guests about the food. They raved about every single aspect of my wedding. I couldn't have imagined a more perfect day. I want to thank Maria Belen and La Jolla's team for making that day the best and most effortless day in my life!

Our experience with La Jolla Ballroom really exceeded our expectations. The food was excellent including the appetizers and bar service. Anything we requested, they were very accommodating. Our wedding coordinator Maria Belen made all the difference to be honest. From day one... Read More she made us feel special and was genuinely excited for us and our wedding. She was able to make things happen - seamlessly and smoothly. We feel that because of the wonderful staff and direction of Maria, we had a great experience with our reception. We even had our own waitress solely dedicated to us the bride and groom.... Which we loved. At the end of the night, the LJB team packed up all our belongings, decor , items etc neatly and helped us load in our limo. We recommend anyone to have an event at La Jolla - it really is a gem in the heart of coral gables!!!

I consider the place and all employees completely excellent. When we got into the reception place everything was perfect, elegant and beautiful. Food and service were excellent, you didn't even have to worry about getting your drink, they were always there to replace it and... Read More attend you. They took care of everything even packing everything for the bride and broom when the party was over. You only have to talk to them and let them know what your expectations are and you'll be satisfied. If I ever need to organize a wedding party again I'll contact them again for sure specially because we live far away from Miami and we needed to trust them. All are guests were mainly from Canada and all their comments about this place and its people are excellent. Thanks again for everything (La Jolla Ballroom people) and wish you the best in the future. I will never forget names as Rosario, Maria Belen, Monica and Sandra among others. Yasmira M

I have nothing but great things to say about La Jolla Ballroom and their team of vendors!

Rosario was amazing to work with from closing the deal all the way though planning the details for the big day! Towards the end I also worked with Karina, who was present at my wedding as the event coordinator. Karina is very detail oriented, she had everything at my reception exactly as I had asked her. I only had to drop off my decoration and items to be used at my reception and she placed everything exactly as requested and beautifully decorated the day of. She was extremely attentive the day of my wedding, always near bride and groom and asking if we needed a drink, or if we needed help.

The rest of Team La Jolla was also amazing, the flowers were BEAUTIFUL!!!! The linen variety to chose from in the package were fabulous, the cake was not only beautifully made but delicious too; my guests kept complimenting on how good it tasted. The DJ went above and beyond for us!!! DJ Duni rocked and put everyone to dance at our wedding: I mean EVERYONE!!! We had a blast!!! The bartenders and food were also a plus.

My experience with La Jolla was horrible! I began working with Maria Belen who is extremely nice at the end of July 2013 beginning of August 2013. We paid the initial deposit to not lose the date on Aug 21, 2013. Unfortunately, she went on maternity leave in the beginning of my... Read More wedding planning. I called to get information and no one was able to help me. I was given the date that Maria Belen would return and that was it (January 2014). To make matters worse I kept getting emails requesting payment when details had not been given to me as to when things would be done or how. Finally Maria Belen was back. Mind you at this point it's January and my wedding was in June (less than 5 months before my wedding date). When I would call either the phone rang and rang or Maria Belen was never available to talk at the time. Day of wedding I requested red flowers, instead I got pink (I wish I could post a picture on here for all to see), The DJ was horrendous to say the least, Had a hard time speaking English, transition of songs was horrible (he had a horn, yes a HORN), Coffee and Tea was not provided when I have it in writing that it should have been, Wine was not served with dinner when I have this in writing as well, I chose a white fish with mango sauce but at the reception it was served with none or very little, My sign in was placed in the back of the room where it could not be seen, I had made a sign for the gift table saying thanks and it was placed by the sign in table, Before the wedding was over... I could see the staff taking tables and items before the wedding was over. All in all…I would NOT recommend this place to anyone. A wedding should only happen once, don’t risk it booking your wedding here.
