Pistachio and pale peach – what a delightful color palette to inspire this lovely al-fresco wedding overlooking the harbor in San Diego.
Begum and Michael had the gorgeous So-Cal skies as a backdrop for their nuptials, held at Harbor Island Park. Their candy-sorbet color palette may have been the focal point for our décor scheme, but these two lovebirds couldn’t be anymore sweeter in love. Coming from different religious backgrounds, their wedding day was such a perfect blend of tradition and romance, making our job easy breezy to make this pair shine on the big day.
Working alongside my friend and collaborator, Thomas Bui Lifestyle, we created their ceremony décor to focus on the stunning chuppa. The soft-pleated fabric Concepts Event Design draped perfectly to imbue lots of movement from the placement of our florals and the gentle wind off the Pacific. We twirled tulips, garden roses, orchids, hydrangea, and dahlias in abundance and added lisianthus and scabiosa for a rich botanical texture. Orchids cascading down the back of the arbor were threaded with crystals to add that extra glimmer of sparkle.
Guiding the eye down the aisle were four magnificent arrangements interweaving our floral palette, echoing the sentiments of the chuppa design. After the momentous “breaking of the glass,” guests mingled in the fabric-swaged open-air tent, set with similar florals in varying sizes, some wrapped in custom vessels with gold accents.
And while we must save the best for last… our favorite floral feature from Begum and Michael’s stunning wedding day design was the custom floral “bumper” that decorated their vintage Rolls. “Just Married” never looked so good. Way to stay seriously classy in San Diego!
