Company Background:
When it comes to Southern California weddings, wedding venues in San Diego are a dime a dozen. Large impersonal ballrooms, décor as bland as the buffet, and a staff who is more concerned with logistics than experiences make for an event that’s less than memorable. With abiding charisma and a touch of glam every bride deserves, not only does The Lafayette Hotel offer an affordable wedding venue in San Diego, it competes with the top San Diego romantic hotels.

Hosting everything from retro-inspired ragers in the Mississippi ballroom to conventional vows in the conservatory and light-hearted cocktail receptions on the pool deck, we go above and beyond to ensure the most unforgettable Southern California weddings possible. Plus, our plethora of on-site accommodations invite guests to linger, get to know each other, and allow you to extend your wedding from a few hours to the extraordinary event you’ve been dreaming about.

Wedding Wednesday: Avalon & Nick

4/21/2013  |  Wedgewood Wedding & Banquet Center

their story: Avalon and Nick planned a beautiful wedding at Wedgewood Wedding & Banquet Center in Fallbrook. They used the bright colors in the flowers and uplighting to create a unique, fun atmosphere! It was wonderful to see them stay true to themselves with these small personal touches throughout the day, such as Avalon going barefoot and Nick head banging at the end of their first dance. The food was delicious, and the money dance was hilarious – their guests “made it rain.” The photo booth was a big hit as well!

Company Background:
My Husband and I were married on October 3, 2010. We decided that we wanted to have a really nice wedding with little out of pocket. I started making all of our wedding decorations by hand. I fell in love with the whole process and knew that planning, crafting and decorating came naturally. A year and 1/2 into marriage, ArenLace (Ironlace) was established and has been growing strong in Murrieta, CA. since 2012.

We offer a variety of custom designed apparel that is a great gift for any occasion.  Our specialty line includes Bride and Bridesmaid wedding party robes.  We have tanks for the bride and bridal party, Wedding party tanks, Shirts and dresses.  Every item is custom designed and developed in our shop.  Making this a special handmade wedding Gift!

My love for Paris, Eiffel Tower & Fleur de lis provided inspiration for our brand. My husband proposed with an engagement ring and added a Fleur de lis into the band. I have always loved the Eiffel Tower so I decided to combine the two for my logo. ArenLace is the Iron lace that is seen on the arches of the Eiffel Tower. That’s how we came up with our logo and brand! Cute right!? Thanks for stopping by our Boutique.

Wedding Wednesday: Elizabeth & Charles

7/26/2014  |  Island Palms Hotel & Marina
Their Story:   Elizabeth and Charles exchanged vows by the marina with a stunning San Diego sunset view in the summer.  The details and décor were the couple’s favorite things that were special to them and touched their hearts.  This created a perfect balance of fun and formal.
