“Step into the stained-glass resplendance”
Step into the stained-glass resplendance of The Abbey, built at the turn of the 19th century about the time of the world Exposition in Balboa Park. The Abbey is a beautiful historic church built in 1910 and located in the heart of uptown San Diego next door to famous Balboa Park. The Abbey is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, an enormous honor reserved for only a limited amount of places throughout the nation. Today, The Abbey on Fifth is a private special event facility managed by Hornblower Cruises & Events, two-time recipients of the prestigious "Finest Service Award." They invite you to stage your party, wedding, or corporate event amid the Abbey's dramatic classic decor. Two enormous domed, stained glass skylights bathe the room in a pale yellow glow, while the twelve luminous stained glass windows cast their own heavenly light. Standing in the middle of this former church, you feel as if you're in a Renaissance cathedral: dark, polished redwood molding and woodwork is everywhere framing doors, railings, walls and in curved balconies. Stunning fixtures made of hand-blown, orange-yellow glass are suspended from 50-foot ceilings. Capture the beauty and timeless elegance of the historical Abbey. The cathedral ceilings and colorful stained glass are only part of what makes The Abbey weddings so romantic that you'll have to check your feet for glass slippers. Ceremonies at the Abbey are available in conjunction with receptions only.
