What I liked about Patricia and Ivan’s wedding

00-patricia-ivan-wedding

When I first met Patricia and Ivan I knew a fabulous wedding was going to happen: Patricia is a talented graphic designer and she had a very specific – and gorgeous – vision in mind.

The color palette was blush pink and gold with black accents. Personal flowers included spray roses and anemones, Patricia’s favorites. Her bouquet was tied with a blush pink and black ribbon and a rhinestone buckle.

The couple got married at the St. John Evangelist Church and selected the Renaissance San Diego Hotel as their reception venue.

The reception arrangements were enhanced with crystal candelabra, gold urns, and dramatic candlelight. Specialty linens were rented in blush pink satin and taffeta with gold sequin runners to add a pop of metallic.

Many of the wedding items were designed and printed by Patricia (including their monogram that was used for the invitations and other paper items, and their gobo). This is a clear example of how DIY can really shine at a wedding if done the right way.

Sparklers marked the grand finale. It was a beautiful celebration and, thanks to La Dolce Idea, bride and groom were able to enjoy their day with family and friends!
