Inspiration Thursday: Brewing Up A Storm!

Besides it's beautiful beaches and amazing weather, San Diego has also labeled itself as a the craft brew capital of the West. Home of some of the largest brew names in the industry, local craft brewers have found the demand for their unique brews only increasing with each year. Locals flock to North Park where there is a plethora of brewery venues to choose from, each with it's unique tastes and style. San Diego's newest addition, North Park Beer Company, hosts not only amazing brews, but an upstairs event space with a strong sense of authenticity to it's design. The building itself has a rich history boasting at one time a department store then later a martial arts center. Now the brewery hosts a variety of local brews along with delicacies from Mastiff Sausage Company that pair perfectly. Old school chairs and stamped metal backdrops adorn the open space, with marble tile behind the bar and the beer cooler. The original wooden staircase leads to the event space upstairs, and downstairs there are replicas of the gas lighted lamps that the city's Gas Lamp District is named for. With such a blank canvas to work with in the upstairs space we wanted to bring in an upscale look to a brewery themed wedding. The team played up on the copper and brass elements that adorned the downstairs bar, while keeping it soft and romantic with greens and muted browns. The creation and design for this elegant affair was developed by local Event Planner, Westway Events. The florals were designed and provided by Double LL Designs. Photography was provided by John Attis and VK Photography. Hair and Make Up provided by Verve Luxe. Cake and confections provided by Eat Your Cake Too. Rentals and linens provided by Timeless Events Services and Rentals. Models were Janelle Garcia and Cameron Denny. Charcuterie board and freshly prepared eats provided by Mastiff Sausage Company. With a dream team of local vendors and such an airy and eclectic event space the details speak for themselves in this classically styled wedding!
