KATHRYN & NICK
THE HOTEL DEL CORONADO
PART 1 – DETAILS & CEREMONY
I had a blast designing and planning this glamorous gold, lovely lace and lavender wedding at the Hotel Del Coronado. The bride (Kathryn) and Groom (Nick) lived on the East Coast, so we planned their destination wedding all over the phone. In fact, I met her for the first time at the Rehearsal. This worked so well because she truly trusted me ad the wedding panning and design process.
As for the decor/design of this beautiful wedding, the bride allowed me to truly showcase my expertise and design skills by giving me pretty much design control. I presented ideas I thought would be amazing and it seemed to click perfectly with your design aesthetic – we also through in some surprises she didn’t know about. The results are magical! At the beginning of the design process, the I asked her “what are some of your favorite wedding design elements and colors”, to which she replied, ” I LOVE lace and bling and my colors are ivory, violet/lavender, and gold”. Then of course, she shared her pinterest board with me and I saw that she loved opulent floral centerpieces and got a good sense of her style, so from there it was a fun design process and collaboration with Bethany and Splendid Sentiments for floral decor. We decided to keep the Ceremony and Reception mostly soft ivory, gold and lace and the Cocktail hour we played up the lavender color. I feel in love with Concept Event Designs new lace linen with a gold soft bridal satin.
