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‚Äôs lace, maidenhair fern, and white veronica imbued movement, peaking amongst the garden roses.

Sunset Twilight Ceremony at Hotel Del Coronado ~ Part #1

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‚Äôs 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‚Äôs original vision at play, but let the china mums do their job to emphasize the scale.

PART 2 – THE CELEBRATION

Designing and planning this glamorous gold, lovely lace and¬†lavender wedding at the Hotel Del Coronado was so much fun!¬† 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.¬† She intrusted me with all the planning and design, which was so fun for me.¬† In fact, 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 (shown in Part #1)¬† 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.

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.

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!
