Eat, Love and Marry
We planned this San Diego destination wedding over the course of a year and a half. I can honestly say that Christina and David are two of the dearest people that walk the face of this planet! – Thomas Bui Lifestyles
She ~ a Bio Engineer from Duke …
He ~ a successful CEO …
It only took them two trips to San Diego to finalize the venue and the details! Now THAT’S a successful destination wedding!!
Christina and David are bigger than life, “foodies”. Thus, their wedding inspiration became: Eat, Love, Marry …
At their wedding ~ EAT … well, pretty self-explanatory. In lieu of a traditional wedding cake, they had a dessert buffet table filled with French silk pie, apple pie, blueberry cream pie … each one named after famous song lyrics.
LOVE ~ again, a no-brainer.
MARRY ~ Christina and David hosted a wedding with a lot of personal touches for all their friends and family to remember forever and ever … and always!
… (plus) they invested in several letterpress machines to design and print all their paper goods!
More from Thomas Bui …
The Crosby Country Club in Rancho Santa Fe was Christina and David’s venue of choice. The country club had the private and intimate ambiance that they were looking for. Adorations Botanical Artistry provided brilliant, “happy” seasonal spring flowers ~ Yellow Ranunculus, Orange Poppies, Tulips and Hydrangeas. We then added a crushed taffeta linen in a soft sand color which accentuated the vibrant colors in the florals. Christina carried a bouquet filled with the same vivid colors ~ white, orange and yellow flowers that complemented her stunning Vera Wang gown.
From Christina and David’s blog …
When asked why HE loved HER, he replied, “I just do. There is no reason for my madness!”
SHE feels blessed to have found a man who makes her smile every second she is with him.
She found her perfect man in Dave.
A huge congrats to Christina and David!
