A Fairytale Wedding at Paradise Point with Alison Howard Events

By, August 08, 2012

My favorite aspect about working in the wedding industry is getting to know my couples. I love hearing their stories and ideas, and working together to craft a vision for the wedding day. There is nothing more rewarding!

Recently, Anggia and Andi brought me onboard to help them plan their wedding. Although they had booked their ceremony and reception venues, they were unsure about which vendors to use. Also, they had questions about the style and theme of the wedding. Anggia was very sure that she wanted a lot of pink and champagne colors, with a whimsical and fairytale-like ambiance. Every wish came to life on the wedding day!

Anggia and Andi are a very traditional couple. They exchanged their vows in their home church, Torrey Pines Christian Church.

It poured the day of their wedding, but that did not stop these two from making the most of every moment!

Anggia and Andi chose Paradise Point as the perfect location for their reception. The ballroom was transformed by chivari chairs and specialty linens, brought in specifically for the occasion. The tables were adorned with beautiful florals dripping with crystals, and uplighting set the mood. Finally,  a custom dance floor designed by Anggia and Andi completed the transformation.

Throughout the wedding process, I was involved with all the major aspect of planning (site walk-throughs, vendor appointments/confirmations, timeline creation, rehearsal, and of course wedding day coordination). I suggested vendors for the couple to work with, and accompanied them to key appointments. This left Anggia free to focus on a lot of the little details, such as these favors.

My favorite part about working with Anggia and Andi was how positive they were at every interaction. No matter the situation, they were kind, fun, sweet, and smiling. If they were ever overwhelmed, they managed it well, because they were and still are one of the most positive couples I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with!

A simply perfect Paradise Point wedding with lush gardens and a waterfront ceremony

By, April 29, 2011

This active and fun-loving couple chose San Diego’s Paradise Point resort for their destination wedding. Chrissy and Tanr’s wedding was a great example of how simplicity can be overwhelmingly stunning. By replacing traditional wedding decor and bouquets was a bay view, palm trees, and a lush garden, their celebration became a natural, intimate and romantic occasion. The photos captured the vibe of their wedding day, which was a complete reflection of their cool and collected attitudes.

We asked Chrissy how she would describe her relationship with Tan’r in only five words.  She responded with the following:

SIMPLE. Passionate. True. Committed. Positive.

Our wedding was incredibly simple, therefore giving a very relaxed, easy going vibe. It was a destination wedding with only family members as guests. We wanted everyone to be able to relax and have a vacation. There wasn’t really a single moment that stood out because each and every moment was truly amazing. Our wedding was exactly what we wanted… a beautiful location with all of our family, good food and good drinks!

Our favorite photo is the one where I am in warrior pose and Tan’r is really doing a flying kick through the air! It is brilliant! We always get asked if it is fake.

Our experience with True Photography was absolutely AMAZING!! You guys truly captured our personalities and let us be creative with our photos. Aaron took the most incredible shots and helped us take our ideas to the next level. He helped bring out our personalities so the photos are REAL… (no stiff awkward ones!) I never dreamt that our wedding photos would turn out to be so amazing. The experience was simple and fun, yet our photos turned out extraordinary. I’m so grateful for the time and effort True Photography put in to capturing our wedding.
