SARAH & BRADY 

LA VALENCIA HOTEL Р LA JOLLA, CA

Birde and Groom Kiss

PART 2 – THE CELEBRATION!

This beautiful blush, black and white very classic glam wedding at La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla was full of love, laughter and pure joy for this young couple and their family!   Sarah (Bride) knew she wanted a romantic classic feel to her wedding with soft touches of glam, so we mixed elements of lace (Jennifer Cole Florals wrapped her bridal bouquet with left over fabric from her dress (makes for a perfect match), then we had lace covered columns at the ceremony and lace chair back covers at their sweetheart table, subtle touches of crystal bling on the centerpieces, all the soft romantic florals (roses) and the soft pink/blush with black and white pallet, which complimented the venue space and especially the black and white checkered floor & crystal chandeliers in the Verandah Terrace at the La Valencia hotel.

The groom looked handsome and sharp dressed in his Marine uniform dress blues. As did his swordsmen and their officiant. ¬†Darin Fong captured several great photos with his military uniform — I love the photo of the rings on the hat and in his white gloves. ¬†And for a good laugh, they took a photo in the La Sala Lounge where the guys in uniform were all passed out around the beautiful bride as she can handle her own with the drinks! ¬†Inspired by a photo the bride saw on Pinterest!

The couple shared a passion for all things Disney and in fact, they took their wedding honeymoon at Walt Disney World.  To incorporate their personal touches as a couple, we took their love for Disney and named the tables after their favorite disney characters or movies, their champagne glasses are monogramed with Disney Characters and their names, as well as adding special Disney props at the Photo booth. There was a fun playful side to this elegant blush wedding, as you will see with the Grand Entrance, photo-booth images and throughout.
