in february, i had the pleasure of working with julia and wayne on their wedding at the the grand del mar . It was such a great wedding, and the grand del mar is such an awesome venue! we did the first wedding there when they first opened, and they are still as dedicated and focused on great service and personal attention as they were on that very first wedding! this time, we did the ceremony on the aria lawn, and then moved over to the manchester salon for the cocktails, and onto the capella room for the reception. it was so great to be able to show the guests so many beautiful aspects to the hotel. lavonne from adorations created simple but stunning wrought iron centerpieces that picked up the rustic vibe in the capella room, and provided just the right touch of an amber candle lit glow. danielle biel from sky blu photography was able to capture so many amazing moments from the wedding day, and the cowling band seriously blew everyone away! they were great!! thanks to paula mayer , make-up and hair guru! she makes everyone look amazing :) thanks also to julia and wayne for including me on your perfect day~ it was great!!
