The latest issue of Ceremony Magazine 2010 San Diego is hot off the press. I was completely SWOONED. It’s utterly gorgeous! Pages after pages of delicious real wedding features including our very own: Yulia and Barry at the beautiful Hotel Del Coronado. The ceremony setting was on the sandy beach at the Hotel Del Coronado. We provided a whimsical chuppah of manzanita branches adorned with large pendulous phaleanopsis orchids. Leading up this romantic and ethereal canopy was a carpet drenched with rose petals in light sunset hues. Succulents and logs with dried grapevine lined each side of the petal path. Subtle touches of natural elements were used to introduce the ‘organic’ style of this radiate couple. Yulia’s bouquet was my personal favorite, garden style white bridal flowers with a hint of coral to tie in her bridesmaid’s color. The bridal bouquet included fancy gardenias, lily of the vallley and several varieties of exotic orchids.
The Grand ballroom of the Hotel del Coronado resonates romance and warmth. We continued the use of manzanita and orchids in the ballroom and added loose logs around the base of each vessel. This was a great balance between rustic and elegant. Yulia and Barry looked amazing during their first dance on the custom seamless dance floor provided by Platinumpro. San Diego wedding planner Emily Smiley coordinator this beautiful wedding and did a spectacular job. Kudos goes to Bobby Earle for these wonderful photos.
