It’s Allyson and Paul’s Wedding Day!!!

Allyson and Paul are getting married today at the beautiful Estancia La Jolla!  These to love birds met online and even their distance couldn’t keep them apart.  She lived in LA, he lived in Bakersfield, which led to them getting to know each other fairly well before they met in person.  When they finally did meet for the first time over dinner, they knew that the spark they had was way more important than the distance between them.

The couple loves to travel and Paul proposed to Allyson at the top of the Empire State Building, which is totally sweet on its own, but he had more. Paul created a video for her lip-synching ‘Rhythm of Love’ by the Plain White T’s (a fave of theirs) and included clips of special times they shared together. At the end of the video, it showed Paul walking into the jewelry store to pick up her ring and when Allyson finished the video Paul was down on one knee.

We are so thrilled to have planned their big day and we can’t wait to celebrate with them today!  CONGRATULATIONS ALLYSON AND PAUL!!!

A special thank you to La Vida Creations for sharing their awesome engagement photos!

Courtney and Mark

Courtney and Mark are such a fun couple.  They met walking down the street in the midwest.  Courtney made the first move when she asked Mark what he was up to that night.  They got together for a drink and a few years later, tied the knot in an intimate celebration at Estancia La Jolla.

The wedding was quite interesting to say the least.  It turns out that President Bill Clinton, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton were all staying at Estancia during the wedding, which meant from a planning perspective, we had to modify everything we did for set-up (and got pat downs throughout the day).

For the theme of the wedding, we played off one of the bride’s favorite things – lemons. From incorporating them into the centerpieces to using the bright hue for the bridesmaids’ dresses, the wedding was cheery from beginning to end.  The ceremony took place on the Garden Courtyard and was performed by Bethel.  The couple included some very cool ceremonies – a wine box and hand fasting (email me if you want to know more about these).  Check out some of our favorite photos from the wedding.
