I loved planning with Catherine and Walter because they were so considerate of each other and conscious of wanting their celebration to represent them equally.. This is how we came upon the bright sunny yellows, being Catherine’s favorite color.. mixed with the hints of blue, Walter’s favorite!
Catherine’s sister’s Maid of Honor bouquet composed of yellow roses, white sweet peas, and sweet chamomile buttons.
Flower girl extraordinaire! Pale buttery tulips and fragrant stock flower in a bouquet just her size
Catherine’s bouquet- a soft blend of white sweet peas, yellow roses, tulips, cymbidium orchids, daisy mum chamomile.
The ceremony took place in the historic Presidio Park of San Diego, and we decked out the columns leading to the altar with yellow ribbons, wreaths of fresh green leaves and yellow roses, with a scatter of petals… it was transforming!
Garden fresh baskets lined the aisle…
..& each chair was adorned with a special swag of miniature yellow cymbidium orchids and white alstroemeria- their guests loved them!
The fresh greens and bright yellows begin to transition toward a romantic glow of amber as the night wears on…
Welcome to dinner! Tall calla lilies with a cuff of white china mums and green hydrangea..
Walter’s family creates the dishes of Solare Ristorante Italiano, so it was an obvious and fabulous choice for their dinner reception! (Fun fyi, the Point Loma-Liberty Station location of Solare can be seen in the movie Top Gun!)
We decked out the long feast tables with more golden rose petals than you could imagine and nestled votives all along the way.
Floating candles and clean white stones in fresh water filled vases- oversize squares and rectangles- fit the shape and tone perfectly.
The intimate dinner, in the family restaurant… such a sweet finish and beginning
Thank you Tim Otto for the beautiful photos!
