Grand Del Mar Wedding – Ana & Reid, Part One

FAIRMONT GRAND DEL MAR

ANA & REID – PART ONE

With her sweet southern like charm and stunning looks, it’s no wonder Ana won Reid’s heart.  Ana grew up in Los Angeles but as fate would have it, she moved out to Dallas where a mutual friend introduced her to Reid. They feel deeply in love for one another and were soon engaged.  Two years later they were saying “I do” at Mary, Star of the Sea, a little Catholic chapel in La Jolla, CA.

Mary, Star of the Sea was the chosen location for their romantic ceremony because it had special meaning to Ana and her family, as this is the same church Ana’s two brothers were baptized in many years before.  While Ana and Reid were visiting San Diego they visited the Grand Del Mar and feel in love with the regal sophisticated beauty of the grand property and in particular the stunning Capella Chapel at the Grand Del Mar.  They decided that this would be the ideal place for them to have their reception… and that it was.

NINA & DAN

THE LODGE AT TORREY PINES – LA JOLLA, CA 

Nina and Dan were such a sweet couple to work with and their beautiful intimate wedding with 50 of their closest friends and family really reflected them in every way, as you will see in this post.  We blended their together… we took his more rustic style and her soft romantic aesthetic by using interesting rustic textures with soft florals and a warm soft color pallet.  Splendid Sentiments created very unique centerpieces combining drift-wood in the upright position with greenery (such a hanging amarantus) and romantic roses and other lush florals at the base and floral clusters throughout.  For additional romantic ambiance, we added hanging candles & lots of gold mercury votive candles to the table.   The color pallet was soft & romantic, using blush, soft sherbet oranges, soft pinks, and touches of white, which really gave this rustic look a more feminine touch.  The Cafe Au Lait Dahlias were such a pretty floral for these pieces, giving them a soft but very interesting texture.  To round out the romantic look and feel, we paired the floral elements with a soft blush linen and napkin and glass and gold beaded charger plate from Concept Event DesignDarin Fong did an excellent job of capturing the softness and beauty of this intimate Lodge at Torrey Pines wedding.
