Susan & Brett’s Black Tie Wedding {The Grand Del Mar Wedding Designer}

From the moment that I first spoke with Susan on the phone, I knew that we were going to work together!  We just clicked right away.  My instincts were right and I had the absolute pleasure of planning her gorgeous wedding!  There were so many details in this wedding. Susan & Brett wanted their guests to have the time of their lives, so we thought of every last detail down to the placecard holder, the crystal on the menus, the gorgeous bar, the cigar bar, and dancing shoes for the ladies.  Susan wanted a stunning all white wedding.  She wanted the wedding to have a timeless classic feel but the design to have a modern feel.

Their ceremony took place in the Capella at The Grand Del Mar and I just loved how all the white & crystals stood out from the gorgeous wood beams and vintage feel of the room.  My few favorite highlights from this wedding was Susan’s gorgeous custom Ines Di Santo gown along with the gorgeous 8 tier tall cake!  It doesn’t get better than that!

David & Stephanie {The Grand Del Mar Wedding}

I had the wonderful opportunity to coordinate David & Stephanie’s wedding at The Grand Del Mar!  They are such a wonderful couple and it was an absolute honor to get to be a part of their wedding day!  The down to earth couple went with an earthy aubergine and black tie style wedding.  They are both romantics at heart and their vows were absolutely amazing…talk about goosebumps!

Thank you David & Stephanie for having me be a part of your special day! I wish you a lifetime of happiness!

XOXO,

Wynn

Susan & Brett’s Love Note from their wedding at The Grand Del Mar

Last Friday, July 6, 2012 I had the amazing opportunity to be a part of Susan & Brett’s gorgeous wedding at The Grand Del Mar!  They had their reception in the Capella which is one of my favorite rooms at The Grand.  I had the amazing opportunity to work with Susan & Brett for close to a year.  Since they hired me for full service, we embarked on the wedding planning journey together and it was really an honor for me to be a part of it.  This first class black tie affair had so many gorgeous elements…I can’t wait to get the professional pictures back.  Yesterday, they stopped by my house, and dropped of a wonderful gift for me, and more meaningful than anything a heartfelt Thank You note.  The words from the Thank You note is why I do what I do.  Along with the fun of the designing and planning, the gratification I get from a happy couple is more than anything I can ask for.

Here is a sneek peak of their first dance (taken from my iphone) and their Thank You letter.  Don’t you just LOVE the chandelier treatments done by Kathy Wright & Co.?

Susan & Brett, I wish you a lifetime of happiness and joy!

XOXO,

Wynn

The Grand Del Mar Wedding Experience 2012

Hi Everyone,

Last week, I had the amazing opportunity to attend the The Grand Del Mar Wedding Experience 2012.  For those who haven’t been to the hotel, you have to go!  From the moment that you enter the lobby, the hotel transforms you to a whole different world.  I just love all the European and Mediterranean architecture.  When I got the invitation, I was beyond excited, and needless to say it was above and beyond what I expected!  I’ve had the amazing opportunity to work and have weddings at The Grand Del Mar in the past, but coming to the resort as a guest is a completely different experience.  When I arrived at the entrance and gave the guard my name and told him I was checking in, he asked for my name, and next thing you know when I pulled up the valet said “Welcome Mrs. Austin” Impressive!  Right after when I got up to the desk to check in, they knew who I was instantly when I walked up. I love that, it definitely made me feel special!

After I checked in I had an appointment to get a spray tan with Plush Tan with the owner Danielle.  She was a sweetheart and did an amazing job.  I’m still nice and tan even though it’s raining outside at the moment.  After my tan, I just relaxed and did some work in my hotel room (which was very big & plush) until some of my friends arrived.  The first night, the big event was a surprised to all of us, so I didn’t know what to expect.  After everyone arrived we had tray passed champagne & hors d’oeuvres while everyone mingled.  Then we were all invited over to the Elizabeth Ballroom and the whole entire ballroom was transformed into an amazing carnival!  It was amazing, everything from the music, the lighting, the plethora of fun carnival food, candy, & games!  The event was put on by Paige Levy the Wedding Director at The Grand Del Mar in collaboration with Kathy Wright from Kathy Wright & Co.

The following day, we had the option to either have breakfast in our rooms or dine at the restaurants.  I decided to head over to Amaya and had their Dungenous Crab Cake Eggs Benedict! (pretty much heaven) and then we were shuttled to The San Diego Zoo Safari Park for an adventure!  That night we had our farewell dinner at The Grand Del Mar’s Fine Dining Restaurant Addison.  It was a gorgeous night with fabulous food!

Thank You to Paige and the team at The Grand Del Mar for such an amazing experience!

XOXO,

Wynn
