I just love the vibe in San Diego and I am always excited to work there. I was especially happy to learn that this wedding would be at one of my favorite venues, The Grand Del Mar . I was so fortunate to have stayed at The Grand Del Mar a couple of years ago for Engage!, which is a luxury wedding industry conference. While we were there we were treated as well as their brides and grooms are treated and believe me we were spoiled! What an amazing place to have a wedding! The ceremony was held in the gorgeous chapel right on the hotel grounds followed by beautiful candle light reception. It is always such a pleasure to work with organized wedding planners and this couple hired the wonderful Michael Gapinski of Iconic Events and the whole wedding could not have run smoother! I honestly can say that a good wedding planner is well worth the investment in making your wedding day memorable and perfect! Please enjoy the photos below, with the autumn season upon us I wanted to share this wedding in warm colors to set the tone.
A bit about the Grand Del Mar:
In 2012, The Grand Del Mar became California's first Triple Five-Star resort receiving Forbes Travel Guide's highest rating for its hotel, spa and restaurant. As one of only six destinations in the world to hold this high honor, The Grand Del Mar ascended to California's #1 Resort (#4 in the U.S.) in Travel + Leisure's 2013 World's Best Awards.
