This is one of my favorite photos from this stunning french vintage wedding at the Westgate Hotel.



I was beyond thrilled when Mandy reached out to me and asked me (Monarch Weddings) to be her wedding coordinator She is not only absolutely stunning, she has the sweetest personality and such a warm kind spirit.  Jamie (Groom) is equally as handsome as she is pretty and too was a total sweetheart.  If you spend any amount of time with these two sweet lovebirds, you get the sense that they are kindred spirits from another time or place, soul mates that compliment one another on every level.

When we met and started talking about her design aesthetics, she shared with me that she was inspired by the movie a “Midnight in Paris” and the scenes from the 1920’s in Paris, so it seemed a natural fit for her to select the beautiful Parisian designed Westgate Hotel in downtown San Diego.  The stunning Versailles Ballroom with it’s gold gilded walls and opulent crystal chandeliers set the stage and was the perfect backdrop for her design theme. Rich luxurious textiles and patterns in soft romantic warm colors complimented her choice of blush, ivory and gold color pallet.   She selected the extremely talented San Diego floral designer Karen Tran to create the beautiful floral masterpieces.  The Versailles ballroom was the site for the glamorous ceremony and reception.  It was a unique setup in-which we had the  couple getting married on a white circular custom dancefloor by Platinum Pro that displayed a custom filigree monogram logo design by J Grace Luxury Event Stationery. The guests were seated around the danceflloor all facing the center of the dancefloor where the couple were standing –  there was an awesome views from every seat in the ballroom.  After the ceremony, the guests were invited to join the cocktail reception in the Westgate Foyer while we worked diligently to flip the room for the reception. read more
