Part 3: Saving the Best for last…the SPECTACULAR and Vibrant Crown Ballroom Reception at Hotel Del Coronado
This Seaside wedding was nothing short of fabulous! With all of the gorgeous ceremony details and the spectacular floral; Karen Tran delivers an OVER -THE -TOP event that was one to drool over! In the Crown Ballroom, the reception was dripping in white phalaenopsis orchids, cymbidium orchids, tulips and manzanita trees laced with succulents and string of pearl succulents. The color pairing of Teal, Raspberry, Mandrin Orange and stark white was crisp and stark against the mahogony wood walls of the magnificent ballroom. The lush centerpieces and the killer head table had everyone “ooing” and “ahhing”!! Thank you, Karen Tran, for being such an amazing talent!
Further enhancing this spectacular wedding, Platinum Pro provided a white seamless custom dance floor made special for this wedding! The White Zig-Zag Dance floor played a huge and vital roll in the look and feel of this event! The bride and groom did not want a “stuffy” wedding, they wanted an open flow, and of course a cool and hip vibe– like they are! The Zig-Zag was the perfect approach to this event style. Modern and chic, with white lounge furniture on either side for comfort (which was so cool)!! It allowed guests to party on the floor AND a place for guests to hang when not dancing! It was perfect for this group! Platinum Pro also provided the gorgeous lighting that was controlled later in the evening to go to the beats and sounds of DJ Justin Kanoya. This Party was Rockn’ all night long!! (even a “douggie dance-off”!!)
The clients wanted an “open flow” style party so recommending food stations was ideal. It allowed their guests to enjoy a variety of food options! This was what we took to heart when planning this dinner and dance reception. We met with the chefs at the Hotel Del and they custom designed a wedding menu with stations the represented places, countries and ethnicities from around the world! Guest got “A taste of Italy”, “Surf and Sea” and more! It made for an amazing experience for all those involved, a detail that their guests will never forget! Guests were wined and dined whiling listening to the sounds of the renowned Sirius Coffee House sensation: Lee Coulter!! His rendition of Jason Meraz was one we will always remember!!
The talented Youngrens, Erin and Jeff and Side by Side video (video is still yet to come!) were amazing to work with and I look forward to many more opportunities for them to capture moments like these! And much love to our beautiful couple; Kelsey and Jeff and their amazing Coronado beach wedding!
