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

Love Note from Kim & Ace {Rancho Santa Fe Wedding Planner}

The night of the wedding is always so bittersweet!  I feel like a mom sending off their kids to college when I hug my couples goodbye.  After working together for over a year and emailing, talking, and seeing each other almost on a daily basis, it’s always hard to say goodbye.  I just loved working with Ace & Kim so much.  We always had such a great time with each other and I love how they adored each other.  Kim attended a wedding that I did a couple years ago and she saved my business card until Ace proposed.  That week after he proposed she called me!  I was so honored and humbled that she knew she wanted to work with me.  Their wedding was absolutely beautiful!  However, after the wedding, that tiny part of me always thinks, “I hope it was everything they hoped for if not more!” If I don’t hear from my couple, I always get a little nervous! lol!  I received the most amazing note from Kim & Ace, and it’s a constant reminder of why I do what I do.  Kim & Ace, we wish you a lifetime of happiness together, and don’t ever stop making each other laugh =)

“Dearest Wynn,

Thank you for giving us the wedding of our dreams!  It was everything we wanted and more!  Words cannot begin to describe the wonderful experience we had working with you.  Wedding planning is supposed to be a stressful time but you made the entire process so easy and so enjoyable (that I still miss it!) I had a vision of what I wanted and you brought it to life.  Our wedding was absolutely BEAUTIFUL and it went beyond our expectations.  Ace and I were amazed.  You saw my inspiration and made it a reality.  From the smallest details to the bigger fine points, everything was executed perfectly.  We are still getting compliments to this day!  Wynn…you are the most honest, professional, kindhearted person we’ve ever had the pleasure to work with.  You have such a passion for your craft and we are so glad you are sharing it with the world.  We love you and cannot thank you enough!”

Love, Kim & Ace

Romance in the Valley Tiffany & Jake {Santaluz & Rancho Santa Fe Wedding Planner & Designer}

I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Tiffany & Jake for over a year on planning their gorgeous tent wedding at The Santaluz Club.  They are such a sweet couple and I loved the fact that Tiffany completely trusted me with the entire design & styling process!  There was a moment when she definitely had her doubt about my idea about building a feather chandelier but in the end she trusted me and they turned out absolutely stunning!  They made such a huge impact on the overall look of the tent.  There were 3 blush colored feathered chandeliers and it stood out in the beautiful draped tent.  Tiffany wore a stunning Lazaro gown and she is a gal that loved Pearls and the hint of vintage in her wedding.  She really wanted her wedding to be romantic and dreamy and we were able to achieve that with all the beautiful details!  We also styled the bride with jewelry from Wynn Austin Collection! I think you’ll agree that she looked stunning!  Enjoy the pictures!

xoxo,

Wynn

Kym & Danny Rustic Wedding at The Santaluz Club

Kym & Danny are my wonderful couple that wanted a rustic casual affair for their wedding.  They really wanted something non-traditional.  They wanted their guests to feel comfortable and enjoy the gorgeous natural look and feel of The Santaluz Club.  For their wedding ceremony, they wanted something different, gorgeous, but rustic.  LaVonne of Adorations came up with this amazing design that captured the vintage wood elements along with the carefree look of all the gorgeous florals placed in the vintage bathtub.  It really reminds Kym of visiting a casual flower market in France where she lived for a few years.  The design looked so effortless like it was thrown together, but of course that comes with so much thought and preparation.  We also alternated the wood ceremony chairs with wood benches to add a fun element of design, lined with bushels of gorgeous lavender.  I just loved this ceremony set up.  It was so unique and gorgeous and encompasses all the elements that Kym & Danny loved.  After the guests were invited to the beautiful courtyard where they had a cocktail reception.  We had a large farm table  with wooden benches along with scattered cocktail tables and belly bars so that guests can mingle around and socialize throughout the evening.  It was a gorgeous September night as guests danced the night away under the stars.

Tiffany & Jake’s Romantic Vintage San Diego Wedding {Amateur Pictures by Wynn Austin Events}

Hi Everyone,

Tiffany & Jake’s wedding was the epitome of vintage romance.   It took place at the gorgeous venue The Santaluz club. I am so honored to be a part of their wedding day.  We planned the wedding together for over a year and I am so grateful that they trusted me on all aspects of design when it comes to their wedding.  I even selected all the bride’s jewelry which I can’t wait to share when I get the professional pictures back from Iris and Light Photography!  This wedding had so many details that I loved!  One of the highlights of the wedding was the three feather chandeliers that I made.  Those are custom items that are made specifically for Tiffany’s wedding! I love designing and I love that my couples trust me to design and build things that they have not seen before.  Tiffany wanted a very vintage and romantic wedding so we decided to go with a gold, mauve, blush with hints of peach with lace! We entrusted the wonderful Kathy Wright & Co., to create the dreamy canaopy and for all the beautiful florals!  I just wanted to share some of the highlights of the details from their wedding that I took on my iphone =) Enjoy!

Wynn Austin’s Moroccan Birthday Party at Santaluz Club

Hi Everyone!

What can I say, planning is in my blood and when my birthday (number not disclosed) was coming up I decided to plan a gorgeous night of celebration for my closest friends.  My goal for the night is to bring my closest friends both old and new all together in one place.  We tend to have friends from different times in our lives and the thought of having everyone come together is the best gift a girl can ask for.

I went with a Moroccan theme because I felt that it went so well with Santaluz and goes well with the Fall season.  The colors I chose for the party was jewel tones.  There is something so romantic and mysterious about the shades of purple, blues, and fuschia!

The AMAZING photos were captured by my very good friend and extremely talented photographer: Braja Mandala Photography!

The party took place outdoors in the courtyard, so when guests arrived, the sun was starting to go down and they were greeted with a mixture of gorgeous Moroccan lanterns strung from the trellis at the entrance.  Up on the hill it can get chilly at night so I had jewel tone padshminas available in case some of the ladies got cold.

I decided also to add a fun element and as favors gave away colorful bangle bracelets that were adorned on a large manzanita branch in case any of the ladies were in the mood to do some belly dancing!

Even though it was a “dress to impress” type of party, I wanted it to have a very casual and relaxing atmosphere.  Instead of having formal tables, I decided to go with a lounge type of atmosphere. I had lounge furniture and pillows scattered around the courtyard to create the warm and welcoming ambiance
