Kelly and Omid are such a cool couple.  I have loved every minute of working with these two to plan their intimate French themed wedding, which will happen later today at Estancia La Jolla.  They truly love each other and I cannot wait to share in their big day – which will be filled with lots of surprises for their guests!

A special thank you to True Photography for sharing these fabulous engagement photos!

It’s Jill and David’s Wedding Day!!!

Jill and David are a love story long in the making.  They went to high school together but their paths didn’t cross then.  Fast forward to today and they are getting married at Rancho Bernardo Inn in an intimate ceremony and reception for their very closest friends.

Here is their story from their perspective:

David and I attended the same high school, Torrey Pines, however our paths never crossed. It wasn’t until we were both attending college locally that we met, when a mutual friend introduced us.

Over several months, David and I got to know each other as friends before deciding to date in November of 2007.

Getting to know each other was a lot of fun, Padres and Chargers games, the shooting range and K-1 Go Kart Racing. Additionally we joined one another’s families on several vacations including Mammoth Mountain, New Jersey, and Maui.

Things started getting serious when we added new members to our “family” including; Vienna the cat and our German Shepherd Tessa.

We dated four years before David proposed. David asked both my parents, Steven and Hollis, for my hand in marriage before he popped the question to me, on our four-year anniversary. David took me back to the exact place we met and got down on one knee! Afterward, we celebrated with an evening of dinner and drinks in La Jolla.

We are so happy for the happy couple and can’t wait to help with their big day!

It’s Kristin and Scott’s Wedding Day!!!

Kristin and Scott met and fell in love at UCSB.  The couple is down-to-earth and private and they wanted a venue that reflected that.  Since the bride grew up in La Jolla, it was only natural to look locally (especially since there are so many fabulous places to get married here) and settled on La Valencia for their intimate wedding.  We can’t wait to celebrate with them today.

Check out their engagement photos (they went back to UCSB for the shoot – so cute!) from their LA based photographer Karen Ard.

It’s Jackie and Shane’s Wedding Day!!!

We’ve been working with Jackie for the past 9 months to help her create her dream wedding.  After 12 years with her fiancé (they are high school, maybe even junior high, sweethearts who are madly in love) this is a day that Jackie wanted to be perfect.  She had a great vision – she wanted something family oriented and fun, outdoors and her priority was making sure that everyone was able to be there and share in their special day vs. pricey over the top decor.

From transforming the venue’s hallway into a timeline of their relationship to having friends and family members make desserts for a super special dessert bar and the 20+ signs that tell their story, share the program, provide the drink menu and more, this wedding is going to really play up the personal touches that make weddings special.

Congratulations Jackie and Shane!!!  We wish you a lifetime of happiness together!
