Glitter, glamour and grandeur- we are thrilled to be showing you this FABULOUS wedding, thanks to the talented photographer Tim Otto.  Dripping in crystal and glowing with romantic candle light, Krysta and Austin’s gorgeous Grand Del Mar wedding was over-the-top BEAUTIFUL!

We had the pleasure of working with the fabulous and talented Victoria Shroeder of Victoria Weddings and events, who created and designed this event with ease.  From the moment Krysta and Austin walked into our studio, we knew this was going to be a fun affair with her major requirements being glamour, glitter and PINK!   The beautiful bride carried a lush hand tied bouquet of fragrant peonies, garden roses, gardenias, spray roses and standard roses finished in a soft blush pink double faced wrapping with delicate lace detailing from the bridal gown and glittering rhinestone accents.

The bridesmaid carried flowers similar to the bride.

The STUNNING ceremony was created under our ivory canopy fully dressed in a thick, rich champagne silk.  Soft blush pink and ivory blooms covered the front, dripping in exotic white phalaenopsis orchids.  A lush carpet of ivory and blush rose petals made from over 850 rose heads was created for the bridal party to walk down.  gorgeously lush and romantically draping blush and ivory floral arrangements were placed atop lace pillars to mark the entrance to the aisle.

Warm candle light filled the Manchester Salon of the Grand Del Mar.  Two types of centerpieces were used to create this look.  Crystal candelabras were placed atop a mirrored base with small shaped, footed candle holders and votives and topped with a lush, draping floral arrangements in soft pink and ivory tones.  Other tables were topped with a lush, round floral arrangement placed directly on the table created around a trio of tall, footed glass cylinder vases grouped at varying heights with a champagne and lace detailing.

The sweetheart table was topped with a lush floral arrangement spanning the entire front and draping romantically off of the table.

A blush bloom was placed delicately at each place setting.  The escort card table was topped with a tall manzanita branch accented with orchids, roses and glittering Swarovski crystal strands and french cut pendants.
