Torrey Pines Wedding Permit

At the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, hosting weddings and scattering of ashes ceremonies requires prior arrangements. This ensures the preservation of natural resources and visitor safety, against the backdrop of its stunning landscapes. To host such events, individuals must obtain a Special Event Permit from the State Parks Special Event Office. Additionally, organized groups planning walks or hikes within the reserve, including docent-guided hikes, must apply for a Special Event permit. These permits accommodate groups of up to 70 people, split into smaller groups for trail use. Fees vary based on group size and day of the week, and parking is not included. Please note that conducting any form of business within the reserve, such as photography or guiding, requires a permit.

Torrey Pines Wedding Cost

Torrey Pines State Beach does not offer dedicated wedding venues. However, it permits small ceremonies in natural settings. While costs vary based on factors like guest count, weekday versus weekend, and additional fees, wedding permit estimates typically range from $1,250 to $2,500. These prices may fluctuate depending on the number of guests, the day of the week, and supplementary park charges. Notably, there isn’t a designated wedding area at Torrey Pines State Beach. Therefore, alternatives may include traditional venues like The Lodge at Torrey Pines or elopement ceremonies on the beach with smaller groups.
