A busy bride with six children and just two months to plan an entire wedding?! Sure, we would love to help! We met with Bianca for the first time just two months before her beautiful wedding day and clicked immediately. Meetings over coffee or breakfast often set the scene for our planning and mingling. This bride was beautiful, selfless and had impeccable taste so we got right to work! We assisted her with creating the wedding vision and style leading up to the most jaw dropping wedding for the gorgeous couple.
This fun duo begin the day’s festivities at the US Grant in downtown San Diego with their entourage. The bride looked amazing!! Bianca’s natural beauty was enhanced by her personal stylist, Rita. The ladies of the bridal party were styled by Blush and Adore and looked fabulous! Bianca even changed her hairstyle and dress after the ceremony. She was so stunning in both dresses that Matt’s attention was on his bride all night long.
Bianca and Matt chose a phenomenal location with an incredible view of downtown- The University Club where they are prestigious members. Guests enjoyed the picture perfect scenery from the start of the ceremony to the last song on the dance floor. The skyline of this remarkable city was the backdrop for their ceremony and the dance floor later on in the evening.
Bianca and Matt’s six children were all a part of the wedding! Aysiah was Bianca’s Maid Of Honor and Matt Jr. was a Groomsman. The younger boys Jacob and Gavin, who was absolutely adorable, were ring bearers while Jaiden and Neveah were precious flower girls! The love amongst the family was so apparent when the children cried tears of joy during the ceremony.
The Officiant, Matt, was a close friend who was able to speak about the couple personally; making the ceremony very intimate with a touch of personal humor. The draping by Concepts rentals adorned the room, making it an even more perfect space. Floral arrangements embellished the space and the arch was incredible. The flowers could be smelt from every spot in the room there were so many!
Live music during the ceremony was an enchanting touch with guitarist, David Maldonado, and a violinist who played for ceremony. David also entertained guests during cocktail hour proceeding the ceremony. The couple’s son, little 18 month old Gavin, was dancing his heart away and it was adorable!
Party People San Diego rocked the room with music as well as, providing the uplighting, gobo and the photo booth which guests enjoyed all night long.

The ceremony aisle was dressed up with floating candles in tall vases and the most extravagant floral arch. The arch became the backdrop for sweetheart table during the reception in a room that was packed with exquisite floral.
Grand centerpieces with pink roses and white hanging orchids were the focal point of the guest tables. The room was extravagant, elegant and perfect just like the couple!
The tiered cake by Sweet Cheeks was delicious and beautiful with its gold embellishments. The print created by Dolldine adorned the room in place cards and table numbers.
The rentals from Concepts Event Designs dressed the site with the chiavari chairs, drapery, linens, napkins and a white dance floor. It looked perfect!
Aysiah, Bianca’s daughter shared a heartfelt speech with guests; expressing how happy she was for her mom and how grateful they all were to have Matt as a father. It was such a loving family; at one point Bianca and her kids were spotted all dancing together – it was SO CUTE!!
Matt chose to do the father daughter dance with Aysiah as well which was very sweet moment to witness. Thank you Holly Ireland for capturing all these special moments for the couple!
