Four words: ombré petal lined aisle. If that doesn’t get you clicking into this gallery then I don’t know what will. Maybe the fact that Bliss Events coordinated this special day? Or how about that Petula Pea Photography was on hand to capture it all. That’s right, it’s a day perfect for sharing and we’ve got it all waiting for you to see in The Vault!
Full of charm and romance, La Jolla, California was the ideal destination for Kyle and Emily’s September 25th 2015 wedding at La Valencia Hotel. The property boasts amazing unparalleled views of the Pacific Ocean as well as a boutique warm feel for an intimate occasion. Traveling from New York with 70 guests and booking the property “site unseen”, Kyle and Emily celebrated their marriage overlooking La Jolla Cove surrounded by the ones they love. Guests arrived to the hotel and were greeted with a welcome bag full of San Diego must-haves including beautiful intricately designed mosaic tiles with their names and date on them.
Contrary to the normally cool and crisp ocean air day in La Jolla, their wedding day had a heat wave that graced San Diego that weekend, but Kyle and Emily stayed cool and enjoyed every moment. Their romantic first look on the verandah terrace overlooking their wedding ceremony site was magical and Petula Pea Photography captured the emotion of that moment perfectly.
The inspiration behind their day was organic winery-inspired colorful elegance. The ceremony was adorned with vibrant ombre colors in an aisle rose petal scroll… from burgundy to fuchsia, and orange to mustard, then finally gold encircling the couple. Intricate floral vases of all sizes and shapes intermixed with antique lanterns provided the background to their nuptials. Parasols were used to shade the guests from the intense sun and the vibe from live music filled the salty sea air.
Following the ceremony, guests savored the views of La Jolla Cove on the verandah while enjoying live music and La Valencia cuisine such as watermelon cups with goat cheese and big eye tuna tartare with a won ton chip. Tandoori Lollipop lamb chops were tray passed along with kobe beef sliders with truffle aioli with caramelized onions.
Birchwood logs filled the reception tables intermixed with colored florals and antique votive candles in copper, gold, orange and pink to create a natural, eclectic look. The three-tiered naked cake by Sweet Lydia’s was almond mascarpone cake with passion fruit, adorned with fresh berries and florals.
