Tammy & Andrew’s Destination Wedding at L’Auberge Del Mar

May 22, 2017

We were so ecstatic when Tammy and Andrew contacted us to help plan their special day! This wedding took place at L’Auberge Del Mar. A beautiful coastal hotel located on the historic site of The Stratford Inn; a sophisticated centerpiece of the Del Mar Village. We were even more excited when we found out this was going to be a destination wedding, with the couples friends and family traveling from all over to get to the beautiful city of Del Mar!

Tammy and Andrew came to us with so many great ideas they wanted to incorporate in their big day! Our collaborative style matched perfectly with this couple that wanted to be actively involved and have fun with the planning process. They wanted to have elements of their wedding make it feel “destination” and nailed it with their invites, sign in table and escort cards.  We loved their pink and red color scheme and all the decor items they chose.

We knew this wedding was going to go smooth once we dialed in all the vendors! Sharon, with Organic Elements, created some really fun and unique designs for the wedding. And, the bouquets were truly perfect.

Luckily, they had a great photographer, Alex W Photography, and videographer, Blue Tiger Films, that captured this day beautifully!

Check out these amazing photos!

The boarding pass invitation couldn’t have been more perfect for this for this destination wedding.

This lush green setting and lighting was perfect for Tammy and Andrew’s first look photos. They were both giddy and so excited to see each other and you can definitely tell from these photos.

Manazita trees were used at the ceremony altar, with added jewels and florals.

We loved this ombre, red to blush, aisle floral design.

This cute mirror program was placed on the sign in and gift table as an alternative to paper programs. The bride, Tammy, made this herself.

In place of a sign in book, Tammy and Andrew used a personalized wood world map for their guests to sign in on. This was perfect for their destination wedding. The mailbox, pictured behind the sign in was made by Tammy and Andrew for their guests to put cards in.

Tammy’s sister composed music for Angelica Strings to play during the ceremony. The songs were all Disney songs, because Tammy and Andrew love Disney.  All custom versions songs, Tale As Old As Time, Kiss the Girl,  Someday my Prince Will Come, and the Sleeping Beauty Waltz. This was such a special sentimental touch to have for their ceremony.

The newlyweds pictures after the ceremony turned out adorable! We love these beachside photos!

Another great touch for this destination wedding, paper airplane escort cards.

Each guest got a teacup in this cute little box that Tammy and Andrew got in Taiwan.

The most perfect sunset for their grand entrance and first dance! Nothing beats this L’Auberge coastal view.

After dinner, the guests were moved down to the Platinum Ballroom for more dancing. The couple provided another favor for guests, sandals for tired feet.

Tammy did an outfit change for the second half of the reception. This red dress looked phenomenal on her!

Sugar and Scribe desserts always look extremely tasty!

We couldn’t be more happy with how this day turned out! The beautiful weather made this destination wedding even more perfect. Thank you to all of our awesome vendors that made the wedding flow smooth.

We wish Tammy and Andrew years of happiness and love. We had fun planning your wedding! Thank you for letting us be a part of it!
