Quadcopter Delivers the Wedding Rings to the Couple!

What do we think of when we think of ring bearers?  Cute little boys with a ring pillow walking down the aisle.  I’ve even seen dogs delivering the rings but have never seen a robotic Quadcopter being the ring bearer!  I love this unconventional ring bearer that our couple Casey & Nick had for their ceremony.  It was definitely a surprise for the guests and I love how it was fun and playful just like the couple!  The bride and I are also so relieved that it went smoothly since it was a bit of a windy day!

Enjoy the videos! There is one captured from my phone (wynn) and the other one from a gopro camera that was on the actual quadcopter!

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!

Love Letter from Truc & Chris {San Diego Wedding}

In the midst of this crazy wedding season, nothing makes me more energized and happier than getting an email like this from my couples!  This email that Truc sent me was so heartfelt that it literally got my all teary eyed!  I can’t wait to share the pictures of their wedding with you!  As you can see I’m a tad bit behind on blogging!  However, you can always remember to go to my facebook page where I update my status and photos a lot more (it’s so much faster)

Please Like my Page:  Wynn Austin Events Facebook

Thank you so much Truc & Chris for having me be a part of your amazing wedding day!! I wish you all the happiness and love in the world!!

Love,

Wynn

Here is the gorgeous couple, yes and they just happening to be riding in this pretty darn cool car! A black Bentley Flying Spur! I’ll take one please! =)

Truc & Chris after their Catholic Ceremony riding in the Bentley!

From Truc & Chris:

Dear Wynn,

I’ve been meaning to reach out to you earlier – now that the last of out of town family has departed and the dust has settled, I can really have a few moments to properly form my thoughts.

Where do we even begin? No words can properly express the gratitude we have for you and your team. You executed our vision perfectly. Every single one of our guests who we have spoken to since the wedding has told us it was not just one of the best, but the best wedding they have been to. Most importantly to us, our parents were extremely happy. My dad said it was perfect (and he does not express emotions very much), he was so proud of the Vietnamese cultural aspects, he can’t wait to send videos and pictures to our relatives in Vietnam. My mom also asked me to personally send her regards to you.

We also wanted to thank you, Wynn the person, not just the coordinator. You are such a beautiful person inside and out. Your portfolio boasts a multitude of platinum weddings and while ours were nowhere near platinum, you never once treated us any differently and even stretched our budget to make it look more than I envisioned. Not to mention, every single vendor immediately light up when I tell them you were our coordinator and have nothing but praise for you.

I was just telling Chris this morning that I feel so lost now that I don’t have to contact you 5+ times a day asking you for every little thing. Wynn, you were like a sister to me throughout this whole process – I hired a coordinator and unexpectedly gained friend. I hope you don’t mind that I plan to stay in close touch!

Wynn – you were absolutely the best person to entrust one of the most important days of our lives to.

With lots of love and gratitude,

Chris & Truc

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

Lovebirds Hannah & Brennan {Lake Hodges Engagement Pictures by We Heart Photography}

I just absolutely adore Hannah & Brennan!  They are high school sweethearts and are just so sweet together!  They did their engagement pictures at Lake Hodges in Escondido and the pictures were beautifully captured by a husband and wife team We Heart Photography.  Jacob & Christin did such a wonderful job capturing the love between the two lovebirds.  These pictures are just teasers so I can’t wait to see all the pictures when they are ready.  Hannah & Brennan’s wedding will be my first wedding of 2013 and I’ve been having so much fun working with them and getting to know them and their families.  The fun is just starting to begin, we are working on our floral appointments next (fun!)  They will be getting married at one of my favorite venues, The Santaluz Club!

But for now enjoy the engagement pics!

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…

Ashley & Matt {Wedding at the Rancho Bernardo Inn}

Ashley & Matt are just the sweetest couple! They got married at the Rancho Bernardo Inn which is a gorgeous garden venue in San Diego.  It is pretty well hidden, so I would say it’s a bit of a hidden gem but it’s a large property with beautiful green garden grounds (perfect for pictures)  Ashley wanted a gorgeous formal garden wedding with an old hollywood flair by using black, white, and red for her wedding colors.  They are also huge sport fanatics so we had to throw in some fun baseball touches in there!

The gorgeous florals are by Blush Botanicals and HUGE thank you to Bethann Greenberg for the gorgeous photos!

In keeping with the garden theme, we wanted to keep the wood elements by using the dark wood manzanita branches.  We incorporated the baseball theme by having the escort cards look like baseball tickets.  We had them placed on a bunch of peanuts and in one of our gorgeous wooden trays.  You can’t go to a baseball game without some peanuts!

Ashley & Matt had the traditional head table for their wedding.  A money saving tip is we reused the red pomanders from the ceremony for the head table and also all the bride & bridesmaid bouquets.  I helped Ashley pick out the adorable “stone” vases to hold them.  It brings in the bit of earthy garden feel.

2012 San Diego Engagements! Love is in the air!

2012 has certainly start off the year with a bang! Everyone definitely has high hopes for this year, especially being the Year of the Dragon and all =)  All I can say, is that I am so grateful for all the amazing weddings that are in the works this year! Just thinking about it gets me excited! The vendors that I work with tell me that I have some of the sweetest and coolest (and gorgeous) brides & grooms!  They are also pretty darn smart! My couples truly inspire me!

I’ve got some pretty amazing engagement pictures back for some of my 2012 couples.  Instead of blogging them separately, I figure it’ll be fun to feature a couple of my favorite pictures of them all in one post.  Here are some of my couples for 2012!
