Constance Curtis and I had a blast pulling the details together for this wedding! Erika was a super classic and timeless kind of a bride. Her family has a tradition of staying at the Hotel Del Coronado every summer so it was an obvious place for her to marry her Prince Charming. We wanted a very regal and classic feel with a bright and beachy lightness to it, so we chose the pale yellows with whites and greens with a tiny pop of blue.
Erika’s wedding was in the perfect time of the year to get the coveted yellow peonies in the mix…pure amazingness.
For the ceremony, we took the Gazebo at the Hotel Del Coronado and draped the front of it in a beautiful raw silk fabric to soften (and hide!) the existing lattice work that was behind it. We bordered it with two think bands and tiebacks of hydrangea, dahlias and fluffy green viburnum.
For the reception we used a vintage crystal and gold candelabra that perfectly fit the feel of the Grand Ballroom…totally old world charm! We went with all tall centerpieces to fill the large room and high ceilings. The head table was filled with an eclectic mix of vintage crystal vases with peonies, garden roses ranunculus and hydrangea (not pictured here).
