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.

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.

We used black sequin linens for the guest tables and sweetheart table by APR Fine Linens and used a combination of round tables and two long rectangular tables framing either side of the dancefloor.
