Every couple should own a full set of china. Whether you bring it out on Thanksgiving, for the holidays or a fancy dinner party, it's a wonderful wedding gift that you can enjoy with family and friends and even potentially pass down to family members later in life. It's a timeless gift, normally gifted by parents or grandparents but you can help pick out a pattern that will be cherished for years to come!

Wedding Wednesday: Heather & Daniel

9/26/2015  |  The Ultimate Skybox

Heather and Daniel's wedding was untraditional, if you can say that for a very traditional event such as a marriage..They wanted a day that was just as much about their loved ones, as it was them.The couple wanted their ceremony to be fun, light, and full of laughter and emotion. When they went to look at the Ultimate Skybox for a reception venue, they knew that was their wedding spot the second they saw it. It was unique, and they could instantly visualize their party in that rooftop space, and it showcased the bride's hometown better than we could have hoped for! It was the perfect layout for them to have the "moving reception" style that they desired. There was no assigned seating, and the room was a mix of high farm tables, belly bar tables, and lounge seating. They had several different food stations that allowed for a cozy and more 'party' like atmosphere. Heather and Daniel had a sushi station, which has been on their "must have" list for as long as they could remember.

Wedding Wednesday: Laurie & Jason

7/11/2015  |  Paradise Point Resort & Spa

Laurie and Jason live in Hawaii but their friends and family live on the mainland across the US. Instead of having people pay to fly to Hawaii, they brought Hawaii to San Diego.The couple filled their day with tropical and Hawaiian touches from doing lei exchanges and traditional Hawaiian blessings, to having colorful tropical flowers all over, and for their first dance they surprised everyone with a hula they worked on for several months with a distinguished hula teacher in Hawaii. The couple's guests enjoyed the fireworks from Sea World and it reminded them of the fireworks we see each week from Waikiki. San Diego was the closest they could get to Hawaii so they took it!
