Bringing a little NYC to the OC

On the gorgeous day of September 1, 2018 in San Clemente at the historic venue Casino, Allison and Conor were pronounced husband and wife. This venue was perfect for their special day. The ceremony was very personal and charming with their officiant and close friend Tina Vansteenbergen, sharing their love story with all their family and friends. It was amazing to be able to hear how they came together and ended up choosing each other forever. Their vows were nothing short of laughter and love for each other and surprisingly similar showing how they truly ended up with their best friend. 

The reception area was absolutely breath taking with the stunning florals provided by Bloom of Time. The romantic, late summer florals with tones of dusty rose, pale pink, peach and burgundy blended in gently with hints of white and ivory neutrals came together in a classic and secret garden style. The flowers and greenery filled the room from the beautiful center pieces and garland to the greenery hanging from chandlers. They helped tie in the smoky blue and pink water goblets that came in a variety of different styles that added a cute vintage look to the table settings. These were provided by Sundrop Vintage along with a very glamorous blue velvet hawthome couch surrounding the fire place with the addition of a gramophone giving an old Hollywood vibe in the courtyard. The evening flowed smoothly with the grand entrance that consisted of just Allision and Conor, that led to their first dance as newlyweds. And dang! Could you feel the love between those 2!

Dinner was buffet style, provided by Jays Catering. Enjoyed by everyone was Santorini chicken, a tri-tip carvery station, grilled marinated vegetables, mashed potatoes, pear & walnut salad and of course delicious baked rolls! They also had a scrumptious dessert bar with mini desserts of french macaroons, fruit tarts, vanilla bean chocolate eclairs, and french apple tarts! The night was continued by open dancing with fun upbeat music provided by Epic1 DJ and guest having a blast with the photobooth that acted as the guest sign in book. Such a fun memorable way of remembering who came to their special day! As the fun went on a late night snack that is actually a favorite of these 2 was a taco bar provided by the catering team as well! It was definitely a hit! As this magical night came to an end the guest were able to take a piece of Allison and Conor with them with their personalized favors of Hot Cheetos because Allison is OBSESSED and a toothbrush with their cute and clever hashtag #itboilesdowntojacobson on it because Conor is a dentist! How perfect is that! It was a perfect ending to an amazingly perfect day! 

A Cinco De Mayo Wedding

On May 5, Kari and Eric got married on the day that was cleverly declared “Cinco de Moya.”The entire wedding was Cinco de Mayo themed. Each guest was greeted with a colorful maraca on their chair, as they sat to watch the ceremony. The bride and groom stood in front of the beautiful ocean, as they exchanged their vows. Cocktail hour was decorated with colorful cactuses and many enjoyed margaritas. For dinner delicious Mexican food was catered and the place settings were adorned with bright orange cloth, blue glassware, and colorful florals. Each guest received a bag with almonds that represented traits such as health, wealth, happiness, children, and a long life. This wedding was beautifully and unique, perfect for the fun-lovingcouple that embodies “Viva la Fiesta.”

Wild Flower Power

Fall is here! We love this season’s colors and Megan & Rob’s wedding incorporated them all. Fleurish provided super fun, textured, and colorful floral arrangements for their special day. The bridesmaids had all different colored dresses and King Protea bouquets. Our team was in love with this gorgeous ceremony held at the Oak Tree Court in Giracci Vineyards and Farms where the couple planted a unity tree.  

The fun didn’t stop as guests entered cocktail hour to a personalized corn hole set with an “A” painted on the boards and bags for the new Mr. and Mrs. Andrews. The couple also greeted guests with tons of lovely signage and a sweet memory table full of pictures of loved ones who could not be there for the special day. As the reception kicked off in the gorgeous barn guests enjoyed Canyon Catering, beautiful Signature Rentals, and their entertainment for the night provided by VOX DJs. It was an incredible night and made us so excited to be entering into our fall season!
