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!
