Elise + Hayden's Temecula Wedding

Elise + Hayden's sweet + intimate wedding was filled with so much love from their family + friends! Planning with these two was so easy and fun + they were just a blast to work with! There was also a special little connection as my mom was actually Hayden's Kindergarten teacher (I always love when two worlds collide so much later in life).

I always know when a couple wants to have a food truck at their wedding that it's gonna be a good day! Add in some specialty cocktails, a modern barn atmosphere and lovely white + green florals and you've got yourself an awesome wedding!

Elise + Hayden are such a perfect match for each other and they exude love for one another. I think Hayden's reaction to his bride walking down the aisle may have been one of the best I've ever seen (and I've seen a lot!).

We wish the two of them so much happiness together!

Sara + Tony's Galway Downs Wedding

When Sara first reached out to me to help with the design of her wedding, I gushed hard. She’s a coordinator herself, so you imagine how honored I felt that she wanted to bring me on to help marry both her + her future hubby-to-be’s styles together. And the fact that her style was on trend + super rad, was just an added bonus. I literally hit the jackpot with these two.

You can imagine my surprise when I found out that Tony was more drawn to a traditional look, with draping and blush flowers + Sara was drawn to industrial modern, mixed metals + moody tones. Quite the stark contrast. I really tried to bring these two styles together with hints of softness in the draping at the ceremony site and touches of lighter florals to contrast the moody tones happening in other parts of the design.

The end result… perfection.

I grew to love these two so much. Sara is insanely talented herself + has THE best taste ever. A recipe for a good coordinator.

S + T, I wish nothing but the very best for you two! Thanks for letting me play a small part in your insanely dreamy wedding!

Kellie + Dan's Omni La Costa Wedding!

San Diego Wedding Planner When a bride comes to you and says she wants to have In-N-Out burgers + fries and a neon sign hung to surprise her future hubby at the after party, you don’t ask questions. You just do.

Kellie met Dan on a trip to Chicago, only to find out they would soon be living in the same big city of NYC. Fate?… I think yes! It’s these chance encounters that get me all sorts of excited. You just never know where you’re going to meet your future partner for life and hearing these love stories gives me so much hope!

Kellie dreamed of the most beautiful all white wedding at the Omni La Costa Resort and boy, was it pretty! The day was surrounded by loved ones + friends and an amazing group of vendors who made it our mission to make this day run flawlessly. Kellie + Dan said I do overlooking the insane views at the Omni La Costa Resort and danced the night away under strings of market lights. It all ended with guests enjoying burgers, fries and drinks… and dancing the night away under that neon sign that read “The Shotens.” It was magic!

Hannah + Adam's Vista Valley Country Club Wedding!

san diego wedding planner

I think I’m pretty much a sucker for forehead kisses and darn cute couples. Especially couples who become more than clients. Friends. Those couples you just want to be around all the time because their love for one another is simply, contagious. Hannah and I got to work closely together throughout the planning process and lucky for me, she chose one of my favorite venues, Vista Valley Country Club. This isn’t your typical country club wedding venue friends. Their wedding courtyard is pure magic + the reception space is straight out of European heaven. My heaven.

I learned a few things on this wedding day too. 1. Adam’s dance moves kept up with Hannah (once a Charger girl) despite her being in an insanely gorgeous fitted lace dress. 2. Breesa is a floral goddess. What she did with the ceremony arch was INSANE. 3. Donuts are a must. I’m pretty sure they lasted about two seconds once I put them out on the table. 4. Hannah + Adam looked at each other with such a deep love, it moved me.

Let’s go back and drink all the wine + relive every second of this day. Okay. Done.

Brittney + Jason's Temecula Creek Inn Wedding

temecula creek inn

Give me a rad color palette, a beautiful couple + a bride with insanely good taste and you have me jumping up and down! Brittney + Jason tied the knot at Temecula Creek Inn and it was the most gorgeous day ever. Brittney came to me with ideas for colorful florals, with greenery touches for napkin details and Carla Kayes Floral Design delivered all that and more. We kept the overall feel classic, yet infused deep maroons and peaches for a uniqueness. It was stunning and seeing the smile on Brittney’s face was what made me the happiest.

Brittney + Jason, I wish you both the best life ever. You two are perfection. xo
