Lodge at Torrey Pines: Springtime Reception {Kelly + Regan: Part 3}

Part 3: The Beautiful Springtime Reception Details, Custom Dance Floor, and one heck of a Head Table

Kelly and Regan’s spring wedding was full of gorgeous and amazing details. The blending of their styles: Rustic and Organic AND Modern and Clean was a tough job for myself and florist/designer extraordinaire, Karen Tran. We wanted to be sure that the overall look and feel of the event  flowed seamlessly and took into consideration that it also should be fitting for The Lodge at Torrey Pines. So splitting the styles (Rustic/Organic for the Ceremony and Modern/Clean for the Reception) was the answer that fit all.  The couple also wanted a vibrant and colorful approach to their springtime wedding and reception, and Karen Tran’s vivid choice in florals was stunning. The Head Table (Feast style) was spectacular! With a light lime green linen; the white, orange and green florals really popped! And the stark white chairs, continued our “clean” and “fresh” look. We only had touches of the cobalt blue at the reception; this was brought in on the menu designs and the logo again on the custom white  dance floor provided by Platinum Pro.  Outside we had cobalt lounge furniture, fire pit and heaters for those that wanted to just “hang out”!

During dinner, the lovely couple and all of their guests were serenaded in italian by the one and only Nick Palance! And partied the night away as DJ Mike Hogan kept the dance floor Rockn’!!

Of course we couldn’t have all of these gorgeous images if it weren’t for Darin Fong and the video to come by Blue Pearl! I am so lucky to work with such amazing and talented vendors!! This fantastic wedding is now being featured in Ceremony Magazine San Diego! Now on News Stands, so check it out!!:)

Other vendors to recognize: Lighting: Platinum Pro; Chair Rentals: Classic Party Rentals; Stationary: Wendy Ware;  Wedding Cake: Cupcakes Squared; Photo Booth: Shurtterbooth San Diego; Wedding Gown: Vera Wang

And finally, a thank you to our beautiful couple and their families for allowing us to be apart of such a gorgeous and memorable day!

Until Next time…ENJOY!

XOXO, Emily

Lush + Organic = GORGEOUS Ceremony at the Lodge at Torrey Pines {Kelly + Regan}

Part 2: JAW DROPPING details, Lush Organic Ceremony, and the an UNBELIEVABLE Ceremony Altar

Sometimes images speak louder than words…and for this blog post this couldn’t be even more true! I will not go too much into detail, and allow Darin Fong‘s AMAZING images speak for themselves! Kelly and Regan’s Organic wedding at the Lodge at Torrey Pines was one that I will never forget. The Ceremony details were jaw-dropping (to say the least!) and total eye candy. Karen Tran did an unbelievable job taking the idea of a “Rustic” wedding and turned it into an over-the-top LUSH Botanical Art! The altar alone, took over 8 hours to construct and design (with 4 designers!). I think this is one of my most favorite altars (ever!). The details and the amount of flowers wildly dancing about is incredible.  The Aisle Petal path was a new design for Karen, extending past the chairs and creating again, ART on the grass! I loved all of the terrariums lining the aisle, filled with drift woods, touches of succulents, moss, other organic elements.  AND just wait until you see the Placecard table….WHOLLY MOLLY!! You will swoon over this beauty!

Tangerine, Lime and stark White are such a beautiful mixture, BOLD and Stunning. Adding Colbalt, a new “blue obsession” right now in the wedding world, ignites this VIVID color palette. Talk about a “Color Crush”! We are madly in-love with these HOT, vibrant hues and this fun-loving couple! ENJOY!

Next up…a Karen Tran awe’s us again with a Stunning Head table, a Cool and Modern Styled dance floor by Platinum Pro, and more…

Until Next time,

XOXO, Emily


And now some of our beautiful and happy couple…


And LAST, but certainly NOT least…the gorgeous escort card table!!

Beautiful Botanical and Organic Wedding at the Lodge at Torrey Pines Wedding {Kelly and Regan}

PART 1: The Venue and Getting Ready STYLE:

San Diego is full of spectacular destination Wedding Locations! We are so lucky to have so many gorgeous venus and amazing views!  For Kelly and Regan, having a  destination in San Diego was a perfect fit! I originally met Kelly’s mom, Diane, before ever meeting Kelly (or Regan). We immediately hit it off!! I knew that if I loved her mom, Kelly, would be just as fun!! They were a lively group that loved vibrant color, but their style “together” was a mixture of Modern and Rustic.  They selected The Lodge at Torrey Pines as their venue (not to mention that the groom LOVES Golf!), which was the perfect fit for what they were looking for! The Five Diamond Resort is more of a boutique style venue, only hosting one wedding a day! This was perfect for the Butler family, as they wanted a more private and family geared affair. The Lodge is situated on the cliffs of Torrey Pines with spectacular Golf Course and Ocean views! The Terrace where Kelly and Regan wed, is really just a blank canvas for any decor and design; we knew that their “Rustic” look would fit very well with the hotels craftsman style. Florist/Designer; Karen Tran, was later brought on to work with us on the overall design and beautiful floral-scape. Her amazing work is seen all over California (and beyond) and was the perfect fit for providing a beautiful (lush!!) Botanical and Organic wedding! (They LOVE FLOWERS!!)

Wedding Day Style: Our gorgeous BRIDE graced the aisle in a beautiful Vera Wang gown, which she selected from Bliss Bride in La Jolla. Her strapless gown was a fitted trumpet style gown, silk, with Organza “layers”. Her look was very classic, and clean. Her Bouquet is also very classic: white, with Gardenia’s, Roses, white Calla Lilies and Ranuculus.  Her BRIDESMAIDS also wore Vera Wang: a knee length, in Royal Blue/Colbalt blue. The bridesmaids carried gorgeous, lush, bouquets consisting of Lime Green Cymbidium Orchids, white Ranuculus and Roses.  The GROOM and GROOMSMEN wore custom, light Tan suits with lime green ties (gifts from the Bride and Groom).

Darin Fong among many other talented vendors (Blue Pearl, Platinum Pro) were also brought in to make this an “A-List” wedding! I look forward to sharing many more gorgeous images and more details on this fun and vibrant Botanical and Organic wedding!

Until Next time!

XOXO,  Emily
