Gorgeous wedding at L’auberge Del Mar Pacific Terrace

There’s something magical about white and yellow. When put together, they transform into a combination of fresh, exciting and whimsical. We were ecstatic about doing Shannon and Jason’s wedding at the ultra hip L’auberge Del Mar. Let’s start off with her bouquet. Hand wired Hawaiian cattleya and phalaenopsis orchids were wrapped in a sash from her dress. Cattleyas have the most heavenly scent and I’m in love with their delicately ruffled petals. The couple exchanged their vows on the Pacific Terrace, overlooking the magnificent view of the pacific ocean. Shannon walked down a petal covered aisle, lined with floral boxes filled with white and yellow blooms of Charlie’s White peonies, hydrangea, lilies, and imported roses. In between the boxes were glass vessels filled with orchids peony blooms and crystals to give it a clean and fresh aesthetic. Standing next to the pair were two white columns topped with massive arrangements of white hydrangea and peonies. We used over a hundred stems of phalaenopsis orchids for each of these towering altar pieces.  Lisa Moon Events of Orange County did a  wonderful job coordinated the wedding. The programs hanging from the ceremony chairs were provided by Simply Stated Stationary.
As the guests enjoyed their cocktails, and took their escort cards from the sand boxes surrounding an embellished manzanita tree, we transformed it into a vibrant reception. Silver vases were white and yellow explosions of french tulips, calla lilies, and orchids. Surrounding each centerpiece were crystal filled vessels for floating candles that glowed as the sun went down. Allison, romance extraordinaire of L’auberge did a fantastic job at orchestrating this event. Our friend and wonderful photographer Pam Scott  kindly documented these details for us but the main photographer for this wedding was the brilliant  Luna Photography. We can’t wait to see their work!
Congratulations Shannon and Jason!  We wish you the best!  Thank you for allowing us the pleasure to design your wedding.
