SBW February 2017 Featured Wedding

Great vendors and loving family members can make any wedding perfect, and Michelle and Nathan luckily had both for their big day! Michelle and Nathan’s wedding was our first Estancia La Jolla wedding of 2017, and we were lucky enough to be the first wedding in the newly remodeled Grande Room! We love this quaint room and can’t be more thrilled on how it turned out. Their ceremony took place at the beautiful church, St. Therese of Carmel. This church has stunning views of the green mountains which created a truly majestic ceremony. We adored the personal touches in this wedding. It was a wedding where you could truly see two families becoming one. This wedding went incredibly smooth with the help of all our awesome vendors!

These flower girls were so sweet and cooperative. Urban Garden Floral did a great job on their flower crowns and mini bouquets. 

Michelle looked absolutely stunning. Her hair and make up were done by Salon Bordeaux and she bought her dress from Bridal Showcase

Michelle couldn't have picked a better floral arrangement for a February wedding. Once again, Urban Garden Floral nailed it. 

We loved the maroon bridesmaids dresses! Michelle gave her bridesmaids the option of picking any style dress they wanted from Show Me Your Mumu. We love their bridesmaids dresses!

How gorgeous is St. Therese of Carmel! The green mountains in the background were stunning. SBW loves this Catholic church for Catholic ceremonies.

Michelle and Nathan got to ride in style to the reception in a Rolls Royce.

The dark grey tux with the maroon tie was a perfect suit for the groomsmen. Nathan and his groomsmen rented their tux from Men's Warehouse

Instead of a standard guest sign in book, Michelle provided us with this custom wood sign in for guests. It has their names and wedding date on it as well as all their guests loving comments. This is going to look amazing hung in their new home!

A simple, yet classic, "Wish You Were Here" table, to honor loved ones that would have been at their wedding. 

Michelle and Nathan moved to Georgia after their wedding, so for their favors they gave each guest a custom Georgia peach Jam. 

Sugar and Scribe did the desserts and they looked so delicious. We love working with Sugar and Scribe because they are always on time and set up efficiently, not to mention the guests always rave about how good the dessert was. 

This cake topper was an antique that Michelle's grandparents used in their wedding in the 1920's. We had never seen this type of personalized cake touch before and absolutely adored it!

Michelle surprised Nathan with this special grooms cake. Nathan had done volunteer work in Africa and has a huge heart for Africa. This what such a sweet personal touch to add to the dessert table!

These mini glazed chocolate donuts look too good to resist!

We are in love with new flooring and lighting fixtures in the Grande Room at Estancia La Jolla. Michelle and Nathan went with Estancia's in house linens and chairs to give a more simplistic rustic look to their wedding, which went perfectly with their style. 

Michelle's Maid of Honor made Michelle and Nathan a personalized wedding slide show in lieu of giving a speech. It was so special and the newlyweds loved the surprise!

The SBW team can't rave enough about DJ Frank Pompeo. He got in a minor car accident on the way to set up for Michelle and Nathan's wedding. He somehow still managed to arrive on time and demonstrate upscale professionalism despite the car accident prior. He was a great MC that qued all the songs on time and he got all the guests on the dance floor. A wedding planners dream for a DJ!

This wedding was filled with love and we wouldn't be able to share how awesome this wedding was without the awesome photography of Amy Lynn. We love the trending style of Amy Lynn Photography. She captures every special moment perfectly and we have never been disappointed with her photos. 

We couldn't have been happier to be apart of Michelle and Nathan's wedding. Working at two awesome venues, St. Therese of Carmel and Estancia, as well as all of the amazing vendors made this February wedding one for the books.
