Highschool sweethearts Annie and Paul had killer style and wanted to emphasize fun, modern sophistication for their fall wedding on the GORGEOUS rooftop at the Andaz Hotel in the heart of downtown San Diego.  Annie chose a neutral color palette of ivory, nude and natural green, which complimented the space perfectly.  We were lucky enough to work with the VERY talented and organized Amy Vargas, owner of First Comes Love on this beautiful soiree.  

She carried a beautiful, organic bouquet of cymbidium orchids, lady slipper orchids, roses, spray roses, lisianthus, and fragrant gardenias.  

So as to not compete with the beautiful views, the ceremony decor was kept short, mainly consisting of floating candles, shimmering glass cylinder vases, ivory petals to soften the cement floor, and submerged cymbidium orchids.  

Organic sandblasted grapewood accents were placed around the event, adorned with succulents and orchids.  

The candle-studded reception created a warm, romantic atmosphere.  Fabulously detailed and unique centerpieces consisted of black metal trays filled with slate rocks.  Three square vases were placed in the trays, topped with organic sandblasted grapewood branches.  Exotic white phalaenopsis orchids delicately dripped from the wood to the table.  Organic succulents, fragrant gardenias, and vibrant cymbidium orchids were placed around orchids, both attached to the wood and also placed along the table to compliment the mercury glass candles.
