Rebecca Gaffney, Co-founder of Red Letter Days Events, LLC, sent us today's out-of-this-world wedding. Rebecca and Mia are two of Style Me Pretty's Little Black Book Wedding and Event Coordinators who create totally fabulous celebrations! Andrea & Scott's chic, contemporary, Asian-Inspired wedding is no exception. We think you'll agree ...

Add another LBB super-star to the team, Dawn Stone of Embellishmint Floral and Event Design Studio, and voila!...an extraordinary melange of floral treats and accoutrements that were the talk of the evening.

Floral Sushi...

Have you ever seen anything so beautiful? Rebecca referred to Andrea and Scott's wedding colors as black, white, and wasabi green. Pretty clever!

According to Rebecca ...

From the get go, Andrea and Scott set out to create a wedding that celebrated what they value most: each other, their family and friends, self-expression, and creativity. Andrea and Scott met in Los Angeles where they were both sound mixers for television and film (Andrea worked for several years on The Real World and Scott worked for Bunim Murray Productions). With a clear but very open vision, the couple let creativity reign supreme from scouting an urban venue for the event to selecting the best match for our floral and event design partner, Embellishmint Floral and Event Design Studio.

Dawn Stone and her team at Embellishmint created contemporary personal florals that complimented the clean look of Andrea and Scott's attire.

Andrea and Scott wanted an Asian-inspired theme to set the stage for (but not overpower) their décor.  Music was VERY important to the couple--and was a defining element of the event.  And the cake ... oohh the cake! It served as a focal point that brought all theme, color and personality together.

The escort card table was stunning with the "floral sushi".

Bamboo centerpieces strung with votives, and screens upshot with lighting brought warmth and play to all levels of the room.

The rooftops of downtown San Diego framed the magic of their ceremony and the Manchester Grand Hyatt served as a perfect place to celebrate with friends, family and loved ones.

Jay Reilly masterfully captured the love and fun that flowed, as well as the unique beauty of the environment and people.

The team of vendors who partnered to actualize Andrea and Scott's day were a perfect fit and are folks that we  at Red Letter Days refer often.
