This San Diego Couple's Rustic Wedding Reception Is One for the Books

Have you ever left a wedding reception and thought, "That was the best reception I have ever been to!!!"? What about the ones where your feet are twice the size they were starting out the night from dancing too much or your belly is so full from delicious food that you have to roll to the car? Or even the ones where you leave with a list full of ideas for your next get together, whether it was the location or decor that won you over? Well, we have found a reception that we think is a contender for Best Wedding Receptions Ever (if there was such a list)! Christian and Kendall Florido's reception was held at the Twin Oaks Garden Estate, an awesome local outdoor wedding venue. To compliment the foliage rich estate, the couple had a beautiful vintage table ensemble that featured gold chargers complimented by mint green napkins on lace runners with charming greenery and those chair bow, adorable! And to top it all off every guest got a yummy mini apple pie. Pie!! After the pies were eaten, the dance floor was a huge hit after Christian and Kendall christened the dance floor with a fun and upbeat first dance. We have to admit we wish we had crashed the Florido's wedding! 

This Week's Wedding Crush Wednesday Showcases a Quintessential San Diego Wedding

This week, we are featuring the quintessential luxury San Diego wedding! Chris and Marisa Mendivil celebrated their marriage in all the places we love in San Diego, California! From an engagement shoot in San Diego's famous Balboa Park [check!], wedding ceremony at the Immaculata [check!!] all the way through to their gorgeous wedding reception at the incredible US GRANT HOTEL, what we love most about this couple's wedding is their location choices. Marisa is a graduate from the University of San Diego, so the couple wanted to have their ceremony at the Immaculata Church on campus with its breathtaking ceiling and grandeur. Next on the night's agenda was the formal wedding reception in the US GRANT HOTEL's dreamy Crystal Room - a space that has to be seen to be believed! This Victorian era hotel, full of San Diego history and love, just experienced a multi million dollar refurbishing face lift and has never looked better! We invite you to see for yourself!

Gold and Bubblegum Pink Dessert table wedding decor idea by La Dolce Idea... how sweet it is!!

Super lovely and talented Sabrina Cadini of La Dolce Idea turns lucky brides' and grooms' dreams into reality. With her excellent eye for wedding decor ideas and her very good taste, this wedding expert has an artist's knack for beautiful wedding settings. Check out this Gold and Bubblegum Pink Dessert Table styled by Sabrina at the lovely La Valenica Hotel.  Known affectionately as 'The Pink Lady' this table set is a perfect fit for La Valencia!] 

Says Sabrina, "I styled this dessert table for a fabulous wedding couple; Yajhaira and Ricardo, who got married at La Valencia. The bride wanted to give sweet wedding favors to their guests and what could be better than a dessert bar? A mix of candy and desserts matching the glam and vibrant color palette (gold and bubble gum pink) were displayed on a majestic wooden table provided by La Valencia against a beautiful mirrored wall adding more depth to the final effect." Enjoy! 


The gorgeous cake pops and chocolate covered Oreos (yum!!) were created by the delicious wedding favor experts at Anjolie's Sweet Treats - the cake pops were finished with gold edible glitter and the sticks were covered with gold crystals to make them sparkle. The chocolate-dipped Oreos looked amazing with the sugar paste roses and gold edible glitter and were gone in five minutes. Sabrini offers a smart wedding planning tip for displaying dessert items: "Use ornate picture frames and insert a nice paper as background. Your desserts will look great in pictures!"
