I love San Diego, so I thought I would stick to the colors that reminds me of my favorite city.
Design created by Mon Cher Designs. I thought the cherry blossoms and lovebirds goes well with our garden wedding. Sorry for the bad photo.
Photo taken 3.09.09. The flowers are just coming in bloom. Can't wait to see what it looks like in a month!
I had to change reception venue last minute due to a conflict. Now I have a conflict of colors! I don't want to fight the green (looks blue in pictures) of all the doors including the french doors, but green is not one of my colors! Any suggestions on decorations appreciated! The silk plants on the beam will be removed the day of.

Since I'm not having the traditional tea ceremony, I am incorporating it in my theme instead.

Monogram teacups purchased from Anthropologie served as decor and favor.
We're having a 2 tier cake from Flour Power. Chocolate Fudge Mousse and Strawberry Parfait

Not quite as pretty without the flowers, but due to a heat wave they were unavailable
I just adore these flutes! I purchased them from Anthropologie for $12 each
I was inspired by MommyLynda to use vellum wrapped votive holders for placecards instead. I also used the same stamps as JackieG to indentify menu selection. Thank you MommyLynda and JackieG!
Instead of a pillow the RB will carry this nest. I saw this on a photographer's blog. The nest was purchased at Michael's and I added the ribbon.
Water bottle labels created with the help of abattyref.
Here are my versions of the ever popular manzanita trees and pomanders
These projects were made by fellow PW brides. KristinKay made the bracelets for my FGs and ChicBride made the Mr & Mrs signage. Thanks again ladies!
Still deciding on color of tie. Blue or Peach?
I'm going with the J Crew Claudine dress for my MOH and Betsey Johnson Tea Party dress for my BM.
Swarovski bling that is.
earrings & hair comb Regina B, bracelet Etsy/Dana Saylor - also Kristeen and D1rtyMart1n1's bracelet
Our friend (not yet pro) took our first engagement session. We just love San Diego!

We were lucky enough to book Stephanie a month before our wedding. With this being our 3rd e-pic session, we have become more comfortable in front of the camera.

We had so much fun! Paris is just BEAUTIFUL with so much to see! Barcelona was definitely a great way to unwind from all the walking in Paris!
I wish I had a better camera to document our trip. We took over 700 photos! Here are the highlights:
Versailles - just gorgeous!
Nighttime Fat Tire Bike Tour - ends on a boat ride down the Seine River with wine!
Have Gelato at Amorino - taste yummy and they mix as many flavors as you want into a flower!
A Building Designed by Guidi (unique architect) - We saw the Mila house and toured the outside of La Sagrada Familia
Have Tapas and Sangria of course!
