What I liked about… Alison and Allan’s wedding

It was so much fun helping Alison with her celebration! She is 100% American, Allan is 100% English, so we brainstormed to create a wedding that blended both traditions.

Alison’s color palette was midnight blue, deep purple and pewter, a very dramatic combination that went very well with the location they selected, the Hilton Torrey Pines La Jolla for both ceremony and reception.

Bride and bridesmaids carried off-white bouquets by FlowerChild accented with blue and purple blooms, finished with a long silver ribbon.

Both countries were represented in the cheer flags for after the ceremony, and in the ring pillows (Alison’s sister-in-law made them!).

In the ballroom, pewter pintuck linens by Sweet Ribbon Events dressed the tables and silver napkins were tied with blue and purple ribbon. Alison made the individual menu cards in blue and purple. Tall and low centerpieces in the color palette finished the look.

Guests were entertained all day with a fantastic magician (Kevin Viner), an amazing caricature artist (Julia Kelly) and a photo booth from San Diego Photo Booth Rentals.

I designed a fun candy station for the joy of adults and children.

At the end of the night, the happy couple served mini burgers and fries inside boxes personalized with their monogram. The same monogram was used as gobo in the ballroom thanks to Pro Motion Entertainment: Blake did an excellent job with uplighting and kept the music going!

Thanks to Emilio Azevedo Photography and Pro Motion Entertainment for the fabulous images!

Alison and Allan will celebrate with a second marriage celebration in Nottingham in May: I can’t wait to see those pictures! My best wishes to them!
