Point Loma Nazarene University provides special venue rates for alumni, students, faculty and staff. Individuals who do not meet this criteria may hold a wedding on campus but are subject to restrictions. There are several campus locations available for weddings, including: The Greek Amphitheater, McCullough Park, and Ryan Plaza Deck. Other locations may be available by request.
Wedding pricing includes use of the wedding venue for a rehearsal a day prior to the wedding, and use of the wedding facility, public restrooms and two classrooms for bridal party preparation on the day of the wedding. Including decorating and cleanup times, the rehearsal, wedding ceremony, and reception should not exceed 12 hours. Should you want to hold a reception in a location separate from the wedding venue, an additional facility rental charge will apply. For current pricing, please call the Conference Services office at (619) 849-2511 or e-mail email@example.com.
Point Loma Nazarene University does not provide wedding planning services, however, a Conference Services liaison will assist you during the event. It is recommended you designate one individual from the wedding party as your event representative. This person would channel requests through the Conference Services liaison, make sure that all wedding decorations are removed after the event, and settle any matters in accordance with the check-out procedures noted in the Guest Group Handbook.
Per a contractual agreement and certain state health laws, no outside caterer is allowed on campus nor is any group allowed to bring prepared foods onto the campus (wedding cakes excluded). If you desire catering services, please contact Sodexo catering at (619) 849-2454.
Point Loma Nazarene University has a variety of media equipment available for use. If you need any specialized sound or media equipment, or if you want to know the types of sound systems that can be accommodated, pleace contact the PLNU Media Services department at (619) 849-2264 for information and a price estimate (be sure to tell them that you are booking a wedding through Conference Services).
Conference Services has chairs, tables, and other miscellaneous items available for rent. If you choose to rent or purchase special furnishings and/or equipment from a local party rental service, all arrangements must be made directly with the party rental supplier. As you plan your decorating needs, please keep in mind the provisions found in the Guest Group Handbook . Please note that PLNU cannot be held responsible for safekeeping of items rented from outside vendors.
Weather Contingencies and Disturbances
Every effort will be made to insure that your wedding venue is clean and ready prior to your arrival. If you are planning an outside event, however, please remember that your venue is at the mercy of the elements. Unforeseen storms may not preclude you from conducting your event, but they may prevent the PLNU staff from having the area totally free of blown in debris. It is also required that you make a facility contingency plan with PLNU or another facility in case there is bad weather the day of your event.
Keep in mind that, because of the multiple year-round events occurring at PLNU and the campus’ proximity to public property, no guarantees can be made to insure a “noise free” event.
A signed Contract Summary, signed Facilities and Services Agreement, and deposit must be received before any reservation can be confirmed.
