San Diego Mountain Wedding in Julian Celebrates Charm, Amazing Views and Pie!

Here comes the slight sweet clear feeling in the air that say Fall is coming! This is the time where San Diegans’ hearts and minds travel east to Julian for crispy evenings, beautiful mountain vistas, and, of course, pie! Today to celebrate the beginning of Fall you need not make the trek to the mountains as we show off this utterly charming Julian wedding! Allee and Taylor met at college orientation when they were freshmen at California Polytechnic-San Luis Obispo, and as graduation neared, the couple knew they were meant to be together. So when they married in April, they chose a location in the mountains east of San Diego, reminiscent of the mountainous Lake Tahoe area where Allee grew up. Among their favorite memories of their wedding day were reading their vows, which ended up being almost the same in wording even though the couple didn’t discuss them beforehand, and when Taylor got a little flustered after cutting the wedding pie, Allee shares that he ate her piece by mistake! They also loved their circle arch, beautifully decorated by their florist.

Wedding experts will tell you that although San Diego has an amazing year long ‘wedding season’ of fabulous weather and options, September, October and November are the most popular wedding months for good reason. Happy Fall San Diego!

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!"
