Wedding Wednesday: Katherine & Nick

9/21/2013  |  Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa

their story:
Kat and Nick hail from San Diego, born and raised and they went away to college, but both came back to their roots. They found Estancia to be the perfect fit of quaint but still fresh, natural and enjoyed it's history. Even though many people were coming from locally, they wanted them to have a mini-getaway place for everyone to enjoy. It was a formal affair but with a relaxed atmosphere. She wanted things natural, fresh, organic, simple beauty. Kat enjoyed a bit of whimsey with it as well in the Paper Goods and other small touches. The dessert bar was an important aspect for the groom and the mother of the bride. Traditional but playful and she brought in some refined rustic touches. The bride’s favorite floral and scent is lavender so even though her accent of purple was in the majestic tone, we brought in lavender bits throughout the aspects of the day for the bride. Kat’s family owns a winery in Arizona so they entertained their guests during cocktail hour with a wine tasting coordinated with some delicious pairings provided by Estancia and each guest used a special monogrammed glass-etched wine glass for the tasting and then to take home as a favor. The party was awesome and only increased in liveliness once people started kicking off their shoes to partake in the provided flip flops and get into the spirit with various glow stick jewelry. Every detail was thought of and touched on to bring in personalized aspects or favorites for the couple! Another fun favorite was the bride, before her first look with the groom, wanted to do (something she had always pictured) a First Look with her dad and 2 brothers. It was very unique and a special moment for all!
