La Valencia Hotel Wedding in La Jolla CA – Beach Themed Wedding with Seashells and Orchids Galore

Pamela and Peter’s wedding at La Valencia Hotel was a lot of fun!  Not only did we get to flip the ceremony set up to the reception set up, but we did it in remarkable time.  Thank goodness for the help of the hotel staff and my lovely assistant, Hannah, we were able to transform the area in less than an hour!  The guests were enjoying themselves at the cocktail hour on the Verandah Terrace while we were moving all of the chairs, tables, décor, lighting candles, and setting the tables!  It was a miracle! The guests couldn't believe that they were dining in the same area where the ceremony was held at since it had been converted so quickly.  (See the beautiful photos taken by Pam Scott Photo to see the change).  Pamela and Peter were a lovely duo to work with.  Pamela had a wonderful sense of design and put the table décor ideas together herself.  We implemented the design exactly as she wanted and I think they turned out beautiful (thanks for the help from the wonderful florist, Bob, who created the centerpieces and arranged all the florals)!  I love the large lanterns that Pam bought at Pier 1 Imports, and the beautiful white and green orchids and seashells that were placed at each table for décor.  It was truly a remarkable event!

Thank you to all the wonderful vendors who helped make this wedding day a success!  Check out the photos by Pam Scott Photo and the links to the vendors below...
