The Japanese Friendship Gardens in Balboa Park are so beautiful! It gives a lovely background for a beautiful wedding day! Heather and Ryan chose their wedding colors to be a sweet slate blue, fantastic orange and a warm chocolate! The combination was eye popping!
Behind the Scenes Catering delighted the guests with making a custom menu from Ryan and Heather's family cookbooks, the guests all ate family style, and had a fantastic time sharing stories, and sipping on amazing beer and wine!
Sweet Cheeks Baking Company made all the yummy cupcakes, and mini sweets for the dessert station! So so yummy in the tummy! Sweet Cheeks is always a good idea for any occasion!
Carmin did all the design, decor and floral arrangements for this event. Doing a combination of orange and hints of blue.... made a perfect balance!
Such a beautiful couple, and a perfect day to remember! Always!
Here is a little Note from Heather and Ryan :
"My husband and I initially started the wedding planning process and in the beginning phases we knew that we wouldn't have the time to plan our perfect wedding given that we both work full time. As a result, one of my friends recommended that we connect with Carmin. From the initial correspondence and meetings with Carmin, we were hooked.
Carmin is so warm and friendly and positive! She is like a fabulous glass of Champagne, she'll make you feel like the princess/prince and cater to your needs but she does so in such a delightful way...in a way that you can just tell she loves what she does.
From the point we hired Carmin, we realized it was the best move we had made. She thought of things that we would have never considered. She had connections with industry companies that made our wedding more affordable. The amount of time and energy Carmin put into our wedding really showed! Our wedding was so incredibly beautiful! The flowers and desert table and table settings looked like it came right out of a high end magazine for the rich and famous! It looked like a $1 million dollar wedding!! And she brought her team to help on the day of and they also somehow had time to dote on our every whims!
It was the best experience and money that we have ever spent. I have a few friends that will be getting married in the upcoming years and I hands down recommend Carmin to them. I tell them that it's the best money you'll ever spend and your wedding will be so classy and so elegant and so beautiful...and the best part is you don't have to worry about anything as a bride or groom!!!
