Estancia La Jolla Wedding – Erin & Shaeffer

September 1, 2016

We were so ecstatic when Erin and her mother, Diane, contacted us to help plan her special day!  We had also helped plan her sister’s wedding a few years prior so it was so great to be back with the same family!!  And we were really excited when Erin informed us that her wedding venue was Estancia La Jolla.  Not only is Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa one of San Diego’s top wedding venues, but it is also one of our favorites.  We are fortunate enough to be on their preferred vendor list so we have the wonderful opportunity to work there many times per year.
We immediately loved Erin and Shaeffer’s wedding day palette – neutral tones with whites, creams, golds, and greenery!  And we loved helping her plan all of the fun details for the wedding day.  Erin and Shaeffer are coffee lovers, so not only did they take their engagement photos at a local coffee shop, but they had an Espresso Bar, (my favorite) Joes on the Nose, as well as coffee mug favors for their guests to use that night and take home.

Sharon, with Organic Elements, created some really fun, custom, and unique designs for Erin.  From the dripping greenery and florals for the ceremony site to the custom escort card display and over the top floral centerpieces.  See the photos below.

Erin had every detail nailed down from gorgeous linens, chairs, charger plates and draping from Concepts Event Design, rental furniture from Hire Elegance, dessert bar from Michele Coulon, amazing band by Bonnie Foster, and photo booth by Pixster.

You have to check out these amazing photos by Michael Svoboda.  He is truly talented!!
