Aisha & Brett Wedding Pictures {The U.S. Grant Wedding}

A couple months back, I had the privilege of working with the lovely couple Aisha & Brett! Their wedding was held at the US Grant Hotel in downtown San Diego. Aisha & Brett wanted a very modern glam look for their wedding.  What better place then the iconic US. Grant in downtown, San Diego.  Aisha loves clean lines and you can see that in the beautiful and sleek calla lilies.  Their wedding had that timeless look of the deep purples, black tie, lots of candle light, and of course we have to have some bling!

Check out their gorgeous wedding pictures below by Dean of Barnett Photographics!

For the love of Candles! {The U.S. Grant Wedding Planner}

Just this last weekend I had that wonderful opportunity of designing and coordinating Aisha & Brett’s wedding at The U.S. Grant Hotel.  I just wanted to share this picture of the head table taken with my iphone.  I just loved how it turned out with the abundance of candles at varying heights.  Candles make such a huge difference, especially in a ballroom.  How romantic is this table?

Thad & Viet’s Wedding {Marston House & The US Grant Hotel}

Thad & Viet was such a adorable couple to work with.  I can tell they are just crazy for each other and one word that always comes to my mind when I think about them is charming.  They both are so charming and I had such a wonderful time working with them.  Their ceremony took place at the Marston House at Balboa Park.  I knew this venue was perfect for them, and it was exactly what Viet was looking for.  A park that was charming, scenic, and has a lot of character.  After the reception we had the guests shuttled to The US Grant Hotel for cocktails, dinner, and lots of dancing!  Their wedding colors was ivory, peach, and pinks with some greenery accents to add that bit of whimsy.  Sharon of Organic Elements did an amazing job with the florals, and these stunning pictures were captured by the very talented Marisa Holmes of Marisa Holmes Photography!  Something that is very special about Viet is she is amazingly talented and a perfectionist!  She handcrafted so many elements of her wedding, from the signage, the invitations, the ribbons wants, and programs.  I was very impressed with how everything turned out!

Thad & Viet thank you so much for having me be a part of your wedding! It truly was an absolute honor!WAE wishes you a lifetime of happiness!

Wynn Austin & Kathy Wright’s “Enchanted Garden” at the US Grant Love Wedding Showcase

Hi Everyone!

First off! I’m so sorry for being behind on blogging =) It’s been a busy month, but that’s a good thing!  The beginning of this month, I had the wonderful opportunity to be an exhibitor at the US Grant in downtown San Diego.  If you haven’t been there, you need to go.  It is absolutely the epitome of ultra chic luxury!  Once a year they host one of the most amazing bridal show that I have ever participated in.  When I started the design process I wanted to show my style and somehow my personality into the design.  I love designing so many different styles, because when I work with a couple, I focus the design on my couple’s style & personality.  After all, it’s the most memorable moment in their life! I know it’s cliche but it’s true, from that day of celebration is how their story begins.

I had the wonderful opportunity to collaborate with Kathy Wright & Co (the amazing Kathy herself) in figuring where to start.  I told her I loved the twilight wedding, I loved all the dangling white florals outside in the woods! She showed me an amazing custom table runner from Wildflower Linens that I just fell in love with.  From the fabric inspiration we pretty much designed everything around that.  I love fabrics that are highly textured (as you can tell this runner was).  I have some chandeliers that I use for weddings, and I wrapped it in this natural bark with white damask paper to go with the fabric.  I rented the wood table and bench from Pow Wow Vintage Rentals, they were the perfect size and super cute!  I wanted the space to stand out and be cozy so I rented 4 large real ficus trees to surround the wood chuppah and I had them covered in twinkle lights (I love it! It reminds me of fireflies).  The icing on the cake was the gorgeous menus & table sign designed and made by the lovely Jennifer of J.Grace Luxurious Event Stationary.  They were so gorgeous, everyone that showed up had to touch and feel them!  One of my favorite parts is the large calligraphy chalkboard! I made the chalkboard myself (first attempt!) and Jessica of Moira Ink calligraphy it for me.  Isn’t she amazing?  Okay, I’m sure you are tired of my rambling! Here are the professional pictures from the amazing Gene Higa Photography & Braja Mandala of Mandala Weddings!

P.S. The flowers by Kathy Wright was so beautiful, when her team put everything on the table I seriously teared up (I know, silly huh?) but seriously if those petals could talk…
