Blush & Gold Romantic Hotel Del Wedding ~ Part 2

CHRISTINA & SEAN

HOTEL DEL CORONADO

PART 2 – THE CELEBRATION

After the very romantic sunset/twilight ceremony on the beachfront Windsor lawn at the historical beautiful  Hotel Del Coronado, guests moved inside to the Carrousel Room for Cocktail Hour followed by the Dinner reception in the Grand Ballroom of the Hotel Del Coronado.

To help create the elegant garden feel of this wedding in the ballroom, we used a rich darker wood farm table from Abbey Party Rentals that we placed in a U-shape framing the dance-floor and at the center of it placed the sweetheart table. Then we used the hotel’s round tables with soft blush linens for the other guest tables.  Doing this created a unique and non-traditional layout and really made the sweetheart table the center of everything.  We used a soft blush linen in a combination of textures, the pinwheel blush was from Concepts Event Design and specialty Lace linen was for the Sweetheart table and cake table was by La Tavola Fine Linen.  The Farm tables had a soft blush runner, some rounds has blush satin and we used the same fabric napkins for all by APR Fine Linens   Abbey Party Rental’s tuscan plate gave the table decor a more polished complete look and we placed a elegant simple foil printed menu on top by Whimsique Invitations.  For the floral decor, Adorations included seasonal flowers in various size vessels to give an eclectic look. David Austin garden roses dominated the design with natural foliage that lent a handpicked styling, with subtle hints of metallic gold. Queen Anne’s lace, maidenhair fern, and white veronica imbued movement, peaking amongst the garden roses.

Sunset Twilight Ceremony at Hotel Del Coronado ~ Part #1

CHRISTINA & SEAN

HOTEL DEL CORONADO

PART 1 – PRE-CEREMONY & THE CEREMONY

A stunning sunset/twilight ceremony on the beachfront Windsor lawn at the historical and beautiful  Hotel Del Coronado.

The hride-to-be (Christina) wanted her wedding to feel romantic, soft, elegant with warm ambiance with a lot of warm candle light.  Being that her wedding was a pre-winter affair in November, Adorations included seasonal flowers that could give the same grandiose effect as the brides desire to have dinner plate dahlias, and opted for large china mums to take the place perfectly.  David Austin garden roses dominated the design with natural foliage that lent a handpicked styling, with subtle hints of metallic gold. Queen Anne’s lace, maidenhair fern, and white veronica imbued movement, peaking amongst the garden roses. LaVonne (Adorations Botanical Artistry) was able to weave in smaller varieties of dahlias to keep the bride’s original vision at play, but let the china mums do their job to emphasize the scale.

Whimsical Nautical Themed Hotel Del Coronado Wedding ~ #1

ALEXANDRA & JOHN 

HOTEL DEL CORONADO, CORONADO, CA

PART 1 – PRE-CEREMONY AND CEREMONY

This whimsical nautical themed wedding was so much fun to plan and design.  Of course, it helps when you have a fun and  fabulous bride like I did in Allie.  She was willing to be a little more bold with some of the design decisions, she didn’t play it too safe, which would have been easy to do.  Allie has a wonderful sense of style, as you will see from her vintage inspired wedding gown and her flirty second dress for the reception.   We loved that she wanted to opt for the navy blue roped linens from La Tavola, which  helped pull the entire look together and added the touch of whimsy, as well as nautical.   The Design process started with the brides love for vintage and nautical, which fit perfect for the Hotel Del Coronado. Then we took some of the brides favorite colors (blush, green, blue) and her willingness to step outside the box to be a bit playful and it all grew from there. It was truly such a fun process.  I wish more brides would do a themed wedding!
