Warm Romantic Glow

The weather was calling for record heat, but when it came to the actual day it couldn’t have been more gorgeous.  Our property gets shaded so quickly from all of the mature trees and has a lovely sunset breeze so the heat just skipped right over us.  Diana and Oskar chose such beautiful warm colors for their wedding. Joyce from Nobutama Wedding Studio truly outdid herself with the ceremony decor, bridal centerpiece and the cake flowers. Fresh flowers really add a special touch to weddings. Diana actually designed and put together the centerpieces herself with help from her family and friends.  They really were fairly simple but had a huge impact. My favorite thing was that the submersible LED lights inside them were on a remote control!!  I got to walk around and turn the centerpieces on.  It’s the little things that excite me 😉 The ceremony was performed by Dr. Gail Smith. She is so warm and inviting.  It’s always a pleasure having her with us.  Diana was delivered to her ceremony via a white carriage and a stunning white horse thanks to Temecula Carriage Company.  Personal Touch Dining provided amazing food and customer service.  It was great to have them back again tonight.  On a personal note, I was very excited to work with the team from Meurer Image. I have known Chris for a very long time so was great to be able to spend some time together.

Robyn and Mike

I really had a fun time working with Robyn and Mike on their beautiful June wedding.  Robyn found a picture on Pinterest of a wrapped tree for escort cards.  We couldn’t find a really good tree to do this same thing, so I suggested using ribbon to wrap around a couple of the palm trees on the path as you walk in and pin them up that way.  I thought it turned out super cute! Another great detail was the surf board fin table numbers that Mike shaped.  Totally original! And who doesn’t just love the girls in their cowgirl boots? Not only was it a gorgeous day, but the evening was lit up with a Super Moon!! Enjoy!

“Thank you so much for all you did on our special day! Everything was perfect and we had an amazing time! All our guests kept saying how beautiful the venue was!” – With Love, Robyn and Mike

Race Across America

Each year solo and team cyclists start their journey at the Oceanside Pier and race across America to Annapolis, Maryland.  It is a 3,000-mile journey.  So when I received word that the cyclists would be making their way right down North River Road, I knew I had to cheer them on.  My son who is drummer grabbed his cowbell, we made a sign and headed to the corner of Wilshire Road and North River.  Each cyclist that went by we clanged our bell, waived our sign, and shouted “Good Luck” and “Have Fun”!  It was such a fun way to spend time with my son and great way to celebrate the human spirit.  Maybe you can join us next year!

Here is Ty and our silly sign.
