October 2010

I just wanted to let you and Scott know that we ABSOLUTLEY love the pictures.  We are so thankful for all of the hard work Scott put into the photos.  Scott took so many wonderful pictures and was not in the way of guests.  I looked at a few of the photos and thought, ‘I didn’t know Scott was right there’  Truly amazing! I would recommend Scott to EVERYONE!  Thank you for all of the great memories!

~Lana and Kenny exchanged vows at the Torry Pines Christian Church on a sunny October afternoon, a flawless backdrop for their black and yellow themed wedding.

Unique bride’s bouquet designed by Rosita’s Flower Shop.

Bridesmaids work together to “primp” the brides Oleg Cassini dress from David’s Bridal.

Lana and Kenny steal a kiss before the ceremony.

One of the groomsmen shows off his body art, fitting for the occasion.

You insulted him a little bit… ~ Goodfellas

The bride and groom, along with family and friends gathered to celebrate at the beautiful Del Mar Marriot.

The cake was provided by top rated Edelweiss European Bakery.

The wedding party had some fun with traditional wedding customs…

A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person. – Mignon McLaughlin


Angelica and Sean’s wedding was a day of celebration for family and friends who came from Los Angeles, the East Coast and as far as Germany! The La Valencia, with its distinctive Spanish architecture, was a perfect setting for this lovely couple.

Angelica’s Oleg Cassini dress from David’s Bridal was classic and beautiful with its delicate details and tooling.

The flowers were by Custom Floral Design and included locally grown roses.

Angelica’s neckalce was similar to her quinciñera neckalce and made her feel like a princess! Quinceanera is a famous hispanic tradition that marks the beginning of adulthood.

The flask Sean gave to his groomsmen has the Irish Army Rangers Motto on the front, and an inscription on the back which translates to:  The cleanliness of our hearts, the strength of our limbs, and our commitment to our promise.

With so much of Sean’s family spread out all over the world serving in different branches of the military, he can call on them if he and Angelica need their support and they will come.

The Kennedy wood sign was hand crafted by Stephen Sullivan, an artist who has been creating customized signs and murals for many years.

This group really knows how to have a good time!


Thank you for letting us be there to help you celebrate your special day. Congratulations Angelica and Sean!

Rachel and Patrick tied the knot at the lush and tropical Paradise Point Resort on Mission Bay Beach.

Rachel was simply elegant in her Paloma Blanca Dress from Here Comes the Bride

The Wedding Party had a great time posing for Taylor.

The flowers, designed by Stacie Barba of A Day of Elegance, were stunning in this island-like setting. Her attention to detail made the entire ceremony a sight to behold.

It was a  traditional Jewish ceremony, incorporating such customs as the bride circling groom and the breaking of glass.

Flour Power created a delicious looking cake…

…and it looks like the groom really gave the bride a good taste of it!

Led by Wayne Foster Entertainment, the family and guests had a ball dancing and and “getting into character” with wild costume pieces.

What a happy and beautiful couple. Congratulations Rachel and Patrick!

The Martin Johnson House was the perfect venue for this intimate wedding. This historic cottage sits right on the cliffs overlooking La Jolla Shores and the view is spectacular!

The bride was glowing as she primped for her big day at the Estancia La Jolla Hotel.

Valerie’s dress was designed by Paloma Blanca from Here Comes the Bride.

Shoes by Manolo Blahnik.

The charming and gracious groom…

‘I Like You’ by Sandol Stoddard Warburg was read during the ceremony, a simple story of friendship.

These Lovebirds make a beautiful pair!

One way the couple infused Valerie’s Mexican heritage into the wedding was a traditional Mariachi Band. Celieto Lindo delighted the guests with lively music after the ceremony.

Valerie had a strong vision for the design of the reception. With the help of The Floral Department her vision was brought to life. The guests were given clever and unique gifts of their own particular spice as they entered the dining area. The table setting, with burlap table cloths and delicious smelling herb bundles gave the dining room an earthy and rustic feel. The dinner was catered by Waters Fine Catering.

Jon swept Valerie off her feet with the Bride and Grooms First Dance. They really know how to put on a show!

I was moved by the speech Jon gave to his guests at the reception. He spoke of how he and Valerie went about choosing the guest list. He said they wrote down the names of their family and closest friends…and they stopped right there.

Thank you, Valerie and Jon for letting us be a part of your day. ~ Congratulations!
