I met Michelle and her Mother one afternoon last March, and we instantly connected. They hired me on the spot, and within 5 months we planned this wedding with gorgeous details from start to finish. What I loved about working with this client is her excitement and trust throughout the process of her planning her big day with us. Once I saw her gorgeous wedding gown the inspiration began.
We wanted a soft palate that would match the elegance and sophistication of her dress, yet go with the casual elegance of the San Ysidro Ranch and style of their upper garden. We had 218 guests attend and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect. I think the images which Boyd Harris captured for us will give you and idea of why this bride said “It’s Stunning, it’s more than I ever imagined it’s just like a Fairy Tale”. The upper garden at the San Ysidro Ranch has gorgeous mountain and beautiful ocean views which were the perfect back drop for this celebration.
Michelle carried a delicate hankercheif that was also worn by her as a baby bonnet. This hanky her mother had saved until her wedding day. In Memory of her Grandmother she used her cameo pin.
The programs each opened up to reveal the order of the ceremony and the wedding party and family. On the back was a velum envelope filled with petals for each guest to toss after the ceremony.
The upper garden at the Ranch~ We embellished the trellis’ with fabric and lighting to add elegance to the garden and to compliment the head table canopy.
I rented a golf cart and driving them to the upper garden was such a highlight of my day. Michelle and Michael were so excited!
The pastry chef at the San Ysidro Ranch did such an amazing job decorating the cake to match the monique linens. Congratulations’ Michelle and Michael! xoxo
