San Diego Wine and Culinary Wedding

Amy and Jordan’s wedding was so lovely! The venue they selected was unique and fun. The San Diego Wine and Culinary Center is a newer setting in San Diego and is great for weddings. With wine barrels as a backdrop and delectable cuisine, it made the perfect spot for the couple to say their I-dos! The great thing about this venue was the winery style, vineyard situated in urban San Diego.



Amy and her ladies started preparations for the big day at the Hilton Gaslamp in San Diego, California. Louie Talavera provided the beauty services for Amy who looked absolutely stunning!


At the San Diego Wine and Culinary Center, the couple had a wonderful harpist, Mary Fawcett., who provided beautiful music. The couple’s good friend, Eric Wosick officiated their wedding which made the ceremony extra special and touching. Amy and Jordan have been together for years and their son held a sign which read, “Here comes Mom” which was a surprise for dad!


Flowers were designed by the talented Amy from The Flower Shop. Greg from The Cali Life Weddings captured all the moments of this magical day and we thank him for these wonderful photos!


The DJ, Dustin Peery provided the fun music for the dinner reception. The couple both loved to dance so shared the dance floor with their guests the majority of the evening. The cake was from Taste and Sea Cakery.


A fun time for the guests was the caricatures by Caricatures by Dave that they were able to enjoy. This was a hit for everyone because most families in attendance were those with children.

At the end of the night, the couple provided their guests with Mrs. Fields cookies that were tagged with “The best day ever!” Everything about Amy and Jordan’s wedding was amazing and we thank them for allowing us to come alongside and coordinate such a special day!

Chic Carlsbad Wedding

Where do I start? When Gina reached out to me and sent me her wedding inspiration for her and Cesar’s big day, I fell in love. I adored her style and vision! Everything was perfect from start to finish. Gina and her ladies looked stunning!


The wedding was held at the gorgeous Sheraton in Carlsbad, California. Family and friends traveled down from Los Angeles to celebrate Cesar and Gina!


The ceremony site was one of the most gorgeous we have seen there. The scene was embellished with rentals from Concepts Events and flowers from Splendid Sentiments.


Gina’s father escorted her down the aisle and it was extra special because she was the last of 8 children to be married. This meant so much to Gina and it was seen in her smile as they entered the ceremony.


The couple stood on a stage with exquisite flowers and draping highlighting the spot where  they said their I-dos and started the first day of the rest of their lives together.


The couple chose to have their close friend, Steven Arroyo officiate their ceremony and it was wonderful. Steven was personable and funny which made it all the more memorable. They also included a sand vase that Gina and Cesar used to represent their two lives becoming one.


Perla de San Diego played upbeat mariachi music as the couple had their recessional. After group photos, the couple had some wonderful alone photo time with their friend and photographer, Horacio. This lounge piece from Concepts Events was an amazing spot for the couple to share their first moments as Mr. and Mrs. Luna!


The grand entrance was a blast with each couple from the large party dancing into a song of their own.  J+M Entertainment came in all the way from Los Angeles and didn’t disappoint! Gino was so talented and did a fabulous job the entire night.


The couple were the center of attention with their one-of-a-kind sweetheart table, lounge piece and stage from Concepts.


C’est La Vie designed this breathtaking cake which was also the backdrop for the couple’s toasts!


The guests had the time of their lives and enjoyed everything the couple had in store for them.  No’ka’oi Photobooth provided great entertainment for them all evening.


The love for the couple from all those in attendance was so real. It was apparent in everything including the toasts! Cesar and Gina are a very blessed couple and I thank them for allowing At Your Side Planning to come on board as their wedding designer, planner and day coordinator! Thank you Horacio for the beautiful photos.

Coastal Organic Wedding on the Pacific Coast

Their coastal organic style captured me instantly. From their love of succulents, gardening and choosing a caterer who carried fresh, local and organic ingredients, I loved everything that was at the core of the planning.  Continue reading

La Jolla Sheraton Love

It was a warm and sunny day in La Jolla, California. The beauty preparation began early at The Sheraton La Jolla. Kelsey and her ladies spent the morning getting ready with help of Glo Beauty Bar and they looked so beautiful!

Gorgeous Wedding at The Dana

Denise and Anthony’s wedding at The Dana on Mission Bay in San Diego was spectacular. The day was warm and lovely with boats sailing along the bay as a backdrop to the ceremony site. The couple were surrounded by family and friends including sponsors (people the couple respect and admire that give their blessing to the marriage) who were dressed in traditional Filipino attire. We loved how their beautiful daughter was also their flower girl.



Denise and Anthony had a large bridal party and they had such a cheerful time getting ready the morning of the wedding! The wedding palette was timeless and elegant, with a mix of ivories and blushes. Continue reading

I was thrilled to come on board for Dan and Stephanie’s wedding design and planning! Not only did this couple love Disneyland but Dan also proposed to Stephanie in front of the romantic. We adored creating this Disney styled wedding and enjoyed every part of the planning as much as they did.

We loved the fusion of nature mixed in with the modern brewery, Karl Strauss…so much fun!


The ladies began their day with the talented Natalie Gallegos who provided all the hair and makeup services. The group got ready at the Courtyard Marriott across the street from the restaurant. Continue reading
