THE HOTEL DEL CORONADO

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.

Love the “in-ah” surprised look on my bride (Kathryn’s) face. They really had no idea what to expect since she allowed me to just run with the design and we also added elements of surprise too. Love it !
