Glamour and Glitz at the Hotel Del Coronado

A fairytale wedding full of glamour and glitz, modeled after an Old Hollywood theme. The color palette focused on the softer, romantic tomes of ivory, gold and champagne. A soft hint of sky blue was added in the bridesmaids dresses and outdoor linens to match the color of the ocean. This wedding was fit for a princess with large, lush centerpieces with hanging crystals, a custom gold dance floor personalized with their names, an amazing band that rocked the house and fireworks display and the grand finale. Many of the guests were from out of town, so they were welcomed them on the first night with a taco bar fiesta out on the sun deck of the Hotel Del. The second night, following the rehearsal, was a California beach BBQ followed by an evening of toasting marshmallows for s'mores at the beach fire pits. The third night was the extravagant wedding with a breathtaking ceremony out on the Windsor Lawn, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The guests retreated into the Grand Ballroom for an evening of dinner and dancing.
