Rebecca loves Barry (First Wedding at Scripps Seaside Forum)

Rebecca and Barry married this past Sunday at the beautiful Seaside Scripps Forum in La Jolla. This is a brand new venue, and this was the very first wedding ever held at the venue!
And boy, it did not disappoint! Besides the beautiful view, Rebecca and Barry opted for the Forum as it is a certified "green" building. Rebecca and Barry incorporated several elements into their day to make their wedding green. All of their wedding stationary was printed on recycled paper and soy-based ink. For favors, guests were gifted with beautiful succulents that could be repotted as they grow.
So many amazing vendors went in to ensuring a flawless day! All of the florals were designed by the wonderful Annette Gomez, and rentals came from both Classic Party Rentals and Concepts Event Design. Food and drink was provided by the talented team at Coast Catering, and a really fun band from Los Angeles called Soulicious! An extra special thank you to Donna Stout, the site manager with the mostest, who was truly invaluable every step of the way.
Rebecca and Barry, it was a blast! Thank you for everything and Mazel Tov!

Heather loves Josh

A little blog love from Kasey.....

Heather and Josh were married last month at the beautiful Quail Botanical Gardens in Encinitas. Heather and Josh live in the L.A. area and are in the music and film industry. Their love of music was infused in the ceremony and reception, including reception music by their favorite band, Bart Davenport. I loved the personal touches Heather incorporated such as their love of flowers, especially lilacs! Paula Rae created a stunning lilac bouquet for Heather and I used lilacs, daffodils, and irises in the centerpiece arrangements. Thanks to Personal Touch Dining for a delicious vegetarian feast. Heather chose to use a mix of rounds and family style banquet tables which gave a nice family style, intimate feel to the space. The reception had a very organic feel including placecards made of plantable seed paper which we displayed on wheatgrass and a “concert in the park” vibe which was so fun! Their wedding favor was a recipe book of family recipes that Heather compiled and created into a beautiful keepsake, which I thought, was a great way to share both sets of family traditions. The gorgeous photos you see here are courtesy of April and Lindsey of Sweet Monday Photography, thank you! More photos can be viewed by clicking here.

Brooke loves Nick

Brooke and Nick married last month at one of my favorite venues--The Darlington House in beautiful La Jolla. With some super yum eats from Crown Point Catering and great tunes, it was a beautiful, laid-back cocktail affair with lots of personality. Florals by yours truly!

This wedding is especially near and dear to me, as I grew up with Nick--he is the little brother of one of my very dear friends from high school, Diana (who was also a bridesmaid). I've had the chance to get to know Brooke over the past year and a half, and she and Nick are amazing and creative! It was a beautiful day, and I loved the mini high school reunion:) Nick and Brooke, I wish you all the best and can't wait to see you guys on your next trip west!
