Allie and Adrian’s dream came to life at their 1940s inspired wedding. Humphrey’s by the Bay, a picturesque location, was the setting for their lovely day. The day was gorgeous.

The weather was warm and tears were flowing as Allie followed her bridesmaids down the aisle, all of them looking as if they came straight out of the early 20th century from head to toe thanks to their stunning wardrobe as well as beauty done by Ellie from A New Twist.

Ali and Adrian Wedding

Sweet Ribbon Events did a wonderful job creating a beautiful floral arrangement adorning the arch as well as lanterns embellished with peach colored roses and various spring flowers that lined the aisle.

Andrew Kipp, the officiant, kept the mood light and fun just like the couple, during the ceremony. At the ceremony’s conclusion, cheers rang out and bubbles flew and the guests made their way to cocktail hour, held at the same location as the reception.

As guests arrived, they found a beautiful vintage door with their names on it leading them to their tables. On the guest book table, attendees signed records with metallic markers for the bride and groom to keep as a memory forever.

Tables, put together by Sweet Ribbon Events as well, were a simple and lovely white with lace overlay. In the center of each table were beautiful floral arrangements accented with branches and candles.

We love original color combinations for weddings. This color combo is unique and trendy. The delicate white and pink roses surround the peach, purple and deep burgundy colors that bring a pop to the arrangement. With a multi-colored palette comes the opportunity to incorporate all of these gorgeous colors into any aspect of your event.

This mix of colors grants a multitude of ways to become incorporated into the event decor and design. A subtle yet elegant option is to bring out the lighter pink as the focus color. Another great choice is to highlight the deep romantic shades of burgundy. These colors can be highlighted in the attire.


A trendy decision would be to not only integrate one color into the attire, but two or more. The bridesmaids dresses and men’s ties and vests could be light pink, peach or burgundy depending on the style of the wedding and the venue location. The same would hold true for the linens. Imagine walking into the reception of your dreams with a myriad of your favorite colors. The deep burgundies or light peach shades would make a great color choice for the bridesmaid dresses or the table linens to create a noticeable contrast. Floral centerpieces will mimic your bouquet, while guest favors, candles, escort cards and even your cake bring pops of color to tie everything together.


With this exemplary color palette we hope to open your eyes to the wide array of opportunity for your special day. If your style is dramatic, then we recommend focusing on deeper colors. If your style is more subtle, a focus on softer colors may be what you are looking for. There are countless options when choosing a color palette that suits your own unique style.

I have known Yvonne for over 7 years so I was honored when she hired At Your Side as her wedding planning team.  Yvonne and Todd made such a cute pair. We met to discuss planning a few times over sushi and I loved how fun they were to be around. We decided on a elegant yet lively wedding at a winery with rustic and natural elements that could also be incorporated into the design. Shortly thereafter we discovered the perfect venue.


Yvonne and Todd’s romantic day was held at Leoness Cellars in Temecula, California. It was a stunning evening for an outdoor ceremony. The decor included a chandelier and long flowing white chiffon curtains as well as baby’s breath adorning the aisle from Splendid Sentiments floral design. The light and airy pieces complimented the bridesmaid’s blush pink dresses.






The flower girl delicately dropped flower petals before the bride’s procession, while a couple of the cutest ring bearers followed. They weren’t sure why she kept dropping petals so they did the naturally polite thing – they picked them all up!



The officiant, Rabbi Marc Rubenstein, did a lovely job making the ketubah signing and ceremony a sentimental moment for Todd and Yvonne to remember forever.


Yvonne looked ravishing walking down the aisle, with hair and makeup by Flirt Beauty Bar. She wore a short dress with cute blue heels, a look that suited her personality perfectly!


At the end of the ceremony, guests waved pink ribbon wands as the newlyweds walked down the aisle. Cocktail hour overlooked the rolling hills and vineyards of the winery. Guests were delighted to sample wines made right where they were spending their day.

The reception took place in the winery’s barrel room. Wooden barrels stacked to the ceiling of a large warehouse were aglow with candles and pink uplighting.


Escort cards were attached to keys arranged on platters atop a gorgeous vintage inspired table.


Grand floral centerpieces with crystals and candles made the reception space truly exquisite.


The bridal party was announced by the emcee and DJ from Good Time Entertainment, and the bride and groom went directly into their first dance. Soon after, they were lifted into the air on chairs during the traditional Jewish wedding dance known as the Hora. The looks on the couple’s faces were priceless! Following a delicious buffet, Jodee’s Bakery provided an elegant and tasty cake for dessert.

Family and friends spent the rest of the evening dancing with the happy couple and taking pictures in the photo booth, while Scott Land did a wonderful job photographing the day. Todd and Yvonne, we wish you a happy life and a marriage as beautiful as your wedding day!

The vintage carnival themed wedding of Laura and Aaron was one of the most lively and engaging weddings we have coordinated. After a winding drive out from the city, their guests arrived at the sprawling Circle Oak Ranch in Fallbrook. Guests were shown their seats on a lawn with a grand tree providing shade from the late afternoon sun and were witness to an emotional ceremony. Just under the tree at the end of the dirt path was a beautiful metal arch decorated by the florist and friend, Jamie Robb, who created a fabulous floral design throughout the wedding.



The ceremony was officiated by the couple’s dear friend Steve Sneed. Teary eyes lined the path while the groom was clearly in awe as his bride walked down the aisle.



After the ceremony concluded and the day turned into night, the guests walked up to the magically lit courtyard where they enjoyed cocktail hour and carnival games provided by Carnival Services. Guests had so much fun playing these games and the couple especially enjoyed shooting the rifles! It was a great moment watching Laura cock her rifle in her beautiful wedding gown!




The reception was lively and upbeat with the sounds of Roland Garcia, DJ and long time family friend of the bride. Roland was the DJ for Laura’s sweet sixteenth birthday celebration and it was an honor for him to DJ the wedding of her dreams. Every moment and intricate detail was captured by the talented videography team of Dream Encore and photos by Shirock Photography.


A Better Party Rentals provided the rentals which were then prettied up with the floral from Jamie as well as carnival inspired decor which included colorful raffle tickets, tokens and bubbles.


Fun and games were in no short supply at this wedding!

Elizabethan Desserts created the wonderful dessert table with an assortment of baked bites and cakes!

10169266_758017474218048_128923877_nSwirls designed a fun and festive candy station complete with giant swirly lollipops and an assortment of candy from days gone by and the latest trends. This table was a hit with guests young and old and was manned the entire night.


Carnival goodies included cotton candy, pretzels and popcorn.


Two For The Road catered the reception with an assortment of burgers, piping hot tomato bisque, and lobster rolls . With so much to do, the guests had a memorable time with never a dull moment! The happy newlyweds were all smiles throughout the evening, especially when dancing in the open air under the opulent string lights. Congratulations Laura and Aaron!

Romantic. Magical. Breathtaking. A few words that describe the wedding of Eugene and Becky. At Your Side Planning began working with this couple over a year before the wedding date to create their perfect vision of romance in paradise.

0135BIMG9154Studio Carre Photographie

Eugene and Becky secured one of the most gorgeous venues in San Diego - Paradise Point. Even as a San Diego local, when approaching the property of Paradise Point resort and spa I feel like I’m escaping to a tropical island! Eugene and Becky love to travel, so we added to the lush landscaping and tranquil atmosphere to create a feeling of vacationing for the couple and their guests. The color palette included an assortment of breezy peaches, pinks and verdant greens.

0178BIMG9292Studio Carre Photographie

Studio Carre shot photos and Studio West took video that captured the memories of this couple’s enchanted day. The music for the ceremony and reception was courtesy of Mick of Elite British DJ. Mick is such a pleasure to work with and his calm demeanor and lovely british accent make the team work super fun! Blush Botanicals created unique florals that complimented the lush greenery of the venue and added an enchanting ambience with the lighter color palette and birchwood.

Becky collected adorable items for the reception such as a trunk for their cards and a finger paint board to create a very cool and different guest book. A slideshow of the couple played which highlighted their 10 years together as a couple…yes 10!
