carolyn + ben

what fun we had with carolyn and ben planning their wedding! since this was truly a destination event, there was a lot of work to be done! carolyn and ben came from boston, while most of their guests came from the east coast and florida. it was super fun, since they rented out the entire ocean view villas complex for the whole weekend. we pressed our luck with the weather in january, but san diego did not disappoint! the weather was amazing, and the sunset the night of the wedding was spectacular. guests were treated to a mexican fiesta on friday night with a mariachi band, a frozen margarita machine, and great food catered by giuseppe's catering. the next day, the wedding was in full swing with more delicious food by giuseppe, beautiful florals from adorations and music by tim altbaum. we had the cigar roller as a surprise to ben, a chinese tea ceremony for carolyn's family, the horah, and fun pashminas to keep the girls warm. it was a great crowd with such a fun warm energy. the next day, we celebrated again with brunch for all of the guests. it was really fun for us to transform the space three times in 3 days~ what an honor to help you all out! thank you for including us! also, thank you to joel flory who took these awesome pictures!! love them!
