Featured Wedding: T + A – Egypt Meets India, a La Valencia Hotel Wedding

Tina and Adam came to us with their venue, the beautiful La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla and through working with them, we helped them to create such a fun theme – Egypt Meets India.  The groom is Egyptian and the bride is Indian so the theme fit them perfectly!  Throughout the day we incorporated the theme through a variety of elements – the guest book was wooden cutouts of the two countries that the couple will display in their house, a globe pinpointing the two countries, custom napkins, table names and photo booth props and more.  A huge congratulations to our very happy couple Tina and Adam!

Happy Anniversary Sarah and Scott!

A very happy one year anniversary to First Comes Love couple Sarah and Scott!  One year ago today we helped to transform the lawn at Bahia into a magical ceremony venue with draping and lighting.  The interfaith couple was joined just after sunset and then celebrated with a reception overlooking Mission Bay.

We wish you two a lifetime of happiness together!

Happily Ever After – Monica and Larry

Today is the one year anniversary of First Comes Love couple Monica and Larry!  We LOVED, LOVED, LOVED working with them on their bright, rock and roll wedding – which featured a Tiffany blue and burgundy color scheme.  Their wedding day started at the Hard Rock Hotel in downtown San Diego followed by a morning ceremony at Point Loma’s Admiral Kidd Club (check out Larry in his dress blues!)

At the end of the ceremony the couple exiting through a sword detail and then treated their  guests to a lunchtime reception complete with a taco station, photo booth and lots of other fun treats.  But the fun didn’t stop there!  After the reception, they headed downtown for an after party (one that people are still talking about!)

A very happy anniversary to Monica and Larry!!!
