When I first met Carol and Glen, I couldn’t stop smiling from their witty banter and humor. And when I first heard their love story, I was exited to design their wedding even more! Carol and Glen were high school sweethearts who parted ways. Many years later, they reunited and rekindled that teenage flame. The lovely bride wanted her dress to be light pink, like the color of her outfit when Glen and her first met. Carol had seen Karen’s wedding on WE tv’s “Beach Weddings” and knew own had to be over-the-top. Their wedding, which took place at the Hotel Del Coronado, was centered around the color theme of pink, mauve, and gold. I was ecstatic to work with Susanne Duffy of Crown Weddings, who always executes her events to perfection. To accompany her down the aisle, Carol carried a timeless bouquet of white and ivory roses finished with a gold crystal brooch and a delicate halo of sweetheart roses. Her daughters carried pink bouquets of roses, calla lilies, and orchids. A silk ring bearer box accented with spray roses and mauve lisianthus was the perfect opulent compliment to this over the top wedding.
To get their guest into a festive mood we during cocktail hour, we used hot pink linens and created a vibrant escort card table on the Del’s Vista Walk. Various bouquets of magenta roses, fuchsia cattelya orchids, and hot pink makaras perfectly matched Wendy Ware’s guest cards. The real party took place in the Crown Ballroom, where table was decorated with enormous centerpieces. Supporting each ivory and pink centerpiece were hand painted gold vases. Surrounding vases of orchids and gold floating candles gave the whole room a romantic glow. The couple celebrated their love at their own sweetheart table, adorned with cascading orchids and leis. What better way to end the night than with Michele Coulon‘s delectable cake! Congratulations Carol and Glen!!!
