Sandy & Ron’s Wedding {The Santaluz Club}

Sandy & Ron’s wedding at The Santaluz Club was so charming!  They wanted a very intimate ceremony with just their daughters and a big party after that!  I loved their fun spirit.  Sandy had amazing style, her gorgeous dress with Chanel necklace was so classic and chic.  For the reception we went with a classic crisp green and white feel which looked stunning in the white tent.  We added 3 large crystal chandeliers and adorned it with a mix of whimsical greenery, I still can’t get over how gorgeous those turned out.  They also did not want assigned seating so we did a mixture different vignette lounge furniture to provide a casual but very elegant atmosphere.  The italian cypress inside the tent completed the look.  If you know our style, you know we do love bringing the outside in.  This classical gardensque wedding with a modern twist was one of my favorites from last year! Enjoy the gorgeous photos from Luna Photography

Caroline & Warren Gatsby Wedding at the Hilton Bayfront San Diego

I absolutely adored working with Caroline & Warren.  They were so sweet and have known each other almost their entire lives.  They adored each other, and I love how family oriented they were.  One of Caroline’s Matron of honor was her mom.  I hope my girls feel like that about me when they are grown up =)  They were both so excited for their wedding and we had so much fun planning and designing together.  They told me they love the Great Gatsby theme and Caroline loved the color coral so I took those two elements and ran with it.  Since it’s The Great Gatsby theme, of course we have to incorporate feathers! We even incorporated two floral peacocks for the reception.  They were so adorable and the detail on there was impeccable.  Thanks to Sharon and her team at Organic Elements for bringing my ideas to life!  They got married at their church then hosted their reception at the beautiful Hilton Bayfront in Downtown San Diego.

Enjoy the photos from True Photography!

Art Deco Black & Gold Wedding at The San Diego Museum of Art-Balboa Park

Once in a while, it doesn’t happen often these days but I have a hard time getting photos from a photographer.  Luckily when I get the sense that it will happen, I bring in my amazing trusted friend Joe of Joseph Matthew Photography if he is available to take some decor shots for me.  There have been time where I  never get the photos or the decor photos are not what I hoped for, or there is simply not enough photos to showcase my work.  I was so fortunate to have Joe come and shoot a few pics of this gorgeous art deco wedding we did at The San Diego Museum of Art in Balboa Park.  They had dinner in the Sculpture Courtyard.  It is a beautiful indoor/outdoor space that can be transformed in so many ways!  We have more events that we have done there, coming up on the blog.  This wedding had a bit of a art deco flair to it.  We stayed with the colors, black, gold, and white with crystals.  The bride loves having some bling!  We also set up the dinner tables in king feast style.  The feast dinner set up is becoming quite popular!

Time Lapse at The University Club Atop Symphony Towers

A few years back, I did a time lapse of a wedding that I did at The University Club Atop Symphony Towers.  The WAE team had the opportunity to have lunch there yesterday with the catering manager Brigette Bower.  The view and the food was amazing as always!  It made me remember about the video that I had done.  It was fun to watch again and reminisce.  It is also a great way to take a look the space and the view!  Here is the video again.  Enjoy!

Love Note from Katie & Roberto {Wedding at The Santaluz Club}

2014 KatieRoberto RachelWAE 33 Love Note from Katie & Roberto {Wedding at The Santaluz Club}

“I had the pleasure of working with Rachel Le and Laney Schenk (Wynn’s Assistants) for the month of my wedding. I could not have been happier with BOTH of them! Rachel did an impeccable job putting together and incredibly detailed timeline for my big day which made everything run seamlessly. Every bride I’ve ever spoken to gave me the same advice, “Something is bound to go wrong on your wedding day and you just have to laugh it off.” Honestly my day went PERFECTLY with not one slip up. I attribute everything to Rachel for keeping everything on schedule and coordinating with all my vendors so perfectly. They were both so attentive at responding to my one million emails the month of right away. Rachel and Laney are both so sweet and have such nice calming demeanor’s which is super important to be surrounded by on your wedding day and the month leading up to. I could go on and on about my amazing experience and would recommend hiring them to EVERYONE who is seeing “the perfect wedding experience!”

Love,

Katie & Roberto

Harv’s 60th Birthday Celebration Pictures {The Santaluz Club}

When I met with Michelle, and she told me her husband is turning 60 so she wanted to plan a weekend extravaganza for him.  At the time I did not realize she was talking about Harv Eker as in the international best selling author & speaker of “The Millionaire Mindset”!  Michelle and I planned for 6 months a 2 day experience for their guests.  I find it still amazing how she was able to keep this under wraps.  We had guests coming from all over the world, Signapore, London, Hong Kong, and all over the country.  It was such a special occasion!  After meeting Harv, I can see why everyone was willing to come out to San Diego.  Talk about a down to earth person and their guests are some of the sweetest most grateful people I have ever met.  One of the things that I love about my job is the opportunity that I get to meet so many interesting and amazing people.  I love learning their stories.  While we are planning, the vendors that we worked with were completely blown away all the efforts that Michelle was putting into this occasion.  All the guys said it’s their “Dream Lady” to have someone do this for them!  Even I thought, uh oh! I better come up with something good for my husband when he has a special birthday!  The events turned out absolutely amazing, and I loved seeing everyone had such an amazing time!

Thank you Harv & Michelle for having us be a part of such a special occasion!

xoxo,

Wynn

Friday Night: The Big Reveal!

 Friday night guests were invited to the courtyard at The Santaluz Club where guests were greeted with Harv’s favorite drinks, Mai Tais!  The band was set up, and everyone was there waiting for the moment that Harv arrives!  Michelle kept me posted of how far away they are.  The suspense was killing me! It was almost more nerve racking than a wedding, lol!

Saturday: The Ultimate Relaxation (Spa, Golf, and Pool Party)

 For the 2nd day of celebrating, Michelle wanted a really fun day for all the guests, especially for those coming from afar to get to experience the ultimate relaxation and all the amazing amenities that the Santaluz Club has to offer.  We planned a fun and relaxing day for all the guests!  There was breakfast station available for all the guests.  After breakfast, some of the guests went off to hang out at the spa and get treatments there and the guests that golf, went off to the golf course.  It was a beautiful day for both!  In the evening guests were invited to head over to Michelle & Harv’s home for the fun Pool Party accompanied by Brazilian BBQ catered by Sabor da Vida!

Aron and Alex Radiant Purple Wedding {Private Estate Rancho Santa Fe Wedding}

Alex & Aron’s wedding is so near and dear to my heart.  They are a couple and a wedding that I will never forget about for the rest of my life.  I remember meeting them for the first time at their family’s home, and thinking not only are they a stunning looking couple but one of the sweetest people that I have ever met.  Being from Texas, they put all their faith in me to produce an extraordinary multiple day event.  One of Aron’s must haves for the wedding is to have a Latin artist for the wedding and their hopes was to be able to have it at their family home in Rancho Santa Fe.  In my opinion estate weddings are the most beautiful and unique events, but it also comes with the most logistical challenges.  Hands down, having a wedding at a home, that is executed flawlessly is a lot of work and it is not necessarily less expensive like how a lot of people think it would be but with professional help it is worth it!  For Alex & Aron’s wedding, the result was absolutely stunning!  It was a lot of hard work and we faced a lot of logistical challenges but in the end it was perfect and it was worth every minute!  I am so thankful for the opportunity to be a part of their special day and I wish them a lifetime of happiness!

Love,

Wynn

We designed the layout of the event so that as guests are arriving, they are walking down the driveway to enter through the main door of the home.  However, the driveway will also serve as the area for the dinner, so we strategically placed boxwood hedging by Concepts Event Design to cover the pre set up of the dinner.

After dinner we invited the guests back to the back of the house where they were in for a huge surprise! In order to have an area to dance, we had to cover the pool!  I came up with the idea to cover the pool with a combination of custom cut ply wood wrapped in dark champagne vinyl to make it pretty.  The center of the pool, I had plexi glass installed.  The hot tub is above the pool s we create a stage over the hot tub for the band to perform.  This part was probably the most challenging portion of the whole event.  There was multiple site visits with multiple vendors in order to make this happen.  It took us about 6 months to nail down a Latin Grammy Award Winning performer for the wedding!  We also had to ensure the lighting and equipment fulfilled their request in their rider.  All the electrical and equipment component was so foreign to me but it was such an amazing learning experience.  The stage and pool cover turned out magical and was even better than I envisioned.  I lost a lot of sleep just worrying about everything coming together perfectly and we don’t hit any bumps in the construction.  Alas, it was gorgeous and the couple got the concert for their wedding that they have always dreamt of.
