Stunning. Remarkable. Breathtaking. These are some words we would use to describe the unfolding of Jasmin and Rod’s wedding celebration. Jasmin and Rod were having a destination wedding in San Diego. They came from San Francisco and were referred to us by a good friend of owner, Diana Romero. The couple reached out to us last year and we immediately became excited about their wedding vision. They already had the perfect venue – Seaside Scripps Forum in La Jolla with an amazing view of the Pacific ocean. A gorgeous wedding transpired through the blending of the Persian and Vietnamese cultures. We worked together with the perfect vendor team to design their spectacular day.

Vintage Travel Inspired Wedding at La Valencia

We met with Will and Jess early in the planning process and fell in love with their style, personalities and admiration for one another. We got to know them and immediately started the search for the perfect venue! Will and Jess ended up choosing the one and only La Valencia Hotel because of its charm, character and stunning location. We adore hosting weddings at this iconic venue and highly recommend it to future newlyweds. We designed a vintage travel theme to incorporate into each part of the wedding – from invitations by Dolldine Designs to vintage rentals by Petals & Lace Design, and every aspect of the wedding day experience.
