A Destination Wedding at La Valencia with Turquoise Events

By, September 21, 2012

For me, it’s all about being behind the scenes! As a Coordinator, I truly enjoy the connection that I make a with each couple I work with. My job is to understand my client’s vision, learn who they are as people, and help to execute one of their most memorable days. To best fit the needs of my clients, I offer packages that range from Full Service to Month-Of, and of course everything in between.

I recently worked with Julie and Chris, who had a beautiful and elegant La Valencia wedding. Although this couple lives in Texas, they began to vacation together in San Diego because Chris spent time here during his childhood. They fell in love with La Valencia as well as each other. They got engaged here on a weekend getaway trip, and fittingly, they chose La Valencia as their wedding venue. This shared connection helped to make the wedding even more unique and extra special!

In this photo, Julie and one of her flower girls are peeking at the guys. I love moments like this…all about love, family, and excitement.  Since I was talking with Julie right before this shot, I’m actually hiding just out of frame, so that this perfect moment could be captured.

There is always so much energy and excitement flowing before the wedding. For example, I love the pre-ceremony photos of Chris and his guys. This jumping started a whole chain of great spontaneous action photos. I believe that at one point, the energetic group was re-enacting an entire football play.

Julie and Chris were fabulously fun, grateful, organized, wonderful bride and groom to work with. Their ceremony was perfectly intimate and beautiful.

Julie and Chris wanted their wedding to fit in with the feel of La Valencia, while incorporating elegant blue and white flowers for accent. The detailed La Tavola novelty linens and place settings really pulled these colors together.  To complement the look, I searched high and low to find enough clear glass chargers for their guest count. At one point, we almost went with something different, but the results made it all worthwhile.
