With the Royal Wedding on the horizon, we thought it would be perfect time to showcase our “Royal Wedding”. Yulia and Barry’s gorgeous seaside wedding the Hotel Del Coronado. Yulia was a Russian princess, that had moved to the United States to find love. And that she did in Barry! We had 2 months to plan her dream wedding and make all the arrangements for her Russian family and friends to come experience an “American Wedding”! My job was set out for me, as Yuila warned me her father would be “picky” and has high expectations! (whew, was I nervous!) Our team delivered! And as you will see from the GORGEOUS photography by Bobby Earle, Yulia and Barry’s wedding was nothing short of Fabulous!
It was so lovely to be able to work with Yulia. When she hired me, she also contracted me as her personal Wedding Stylist for her special day. After taking her measurements and talking about the style that she loves, I found the perfect dress from Bliss Bride in Del Mar. This Ann Barge gown was so Romantic; with intricate lace detailing and a sweetheart neckline. Yulia was breathtaking!
I love the beauty and grace of this bride and groom as they marvel at each other and their surroundings. The traditions of Judaism, and the beauty of this ceremony made this one of my favorite ceremonies~ ever! Their love and honor for each other, their beliefs, their families and friends left not a dry eye in the audience that witnessed it.
The GORGEOUS Chuppah was constructed of sandblasted Manzanita Tree’s with gorgeous Phalaenopsis orchids cascading down and around the bride and groom as the exchanged their vows. The Tallit read (in English and Hebrew) “I am my Beloved’s and my Beloved is mine” ~ ani le-dodi, ve-dodi li.
Post Ceremony Photos Begins:
All the details that made up this wedding were perfection! Exquisite florals by Karen Tran. The bride was wanting fuse “organic” with “extraordinary” and “romantic”…but also wanting to please her Father, she wanted it to be fitting for the Grand Ballroom at the Hotel Del. The look was unique– but PERFECT for this bride and groom! And 0h-so-fab!
My favorite was the Custom Seamless White Dance floor provided by Platinum Pro, with the custom drawing and design by Wendy Ware. Amber lighting filled the Gorgeous crystal ballroom and illuminated the candle-lit tabletops. And now the REAL First dance:
Our entertainment was also KEY to this event! We had amazing vocalist Nick Palance accompanied by his mini-orchestra for dinner music! WOW! He gives me goosebumps every time! And then DJ Justin Kanoya brought the house down with all the latest and greatest! The dance floor was ROCKN’! (see photos below!)
