Emily and David | Loews Coronado + The Ultimate Skybox Wedding

By, November 22, 2017

Emily and David recently held their wedding at the waterfront Loews Coronado Bay Resort, and celebrated their reception at the Ultimate Skybox. These two locations, and their surroundings, provided a gorgeous variety of contrasting backdrops. We had lots to work with! Enjoy a selection of highlights from this fun Downtown San Diego wedding.

To the Moon and Back | Photo of the Week

By, November 17, 2017

During Anna Marie and Scott’s wedding reception, we noticed the full moon rise above San Diego. We knew we had to pull these two out for a couple photo, and they were more than happy to oblige! To achieve this shot, we used a telephoto lens and external lighting, and the result was this stunning image. Enjoy our Photo of the Week :)Moonlight night shot

A White Orchid Dream by Suzan M. Florals | Lindsey and Case’s Wedding Atop Symphony Towers

By, April 30, 2013

Lindsey and Case are a really fun couple who recently married at The University Club atop Symphony Towers. This fabulous venue sits on the 34th floor of one of San Diego’s tallest buildings, and offers spectacular views of the San Diego skyline. At Suzan M. Florals, we were excited to create a unique and sophisticated floral design for this wedding!

To safeguard against unexpected rain, Lindsey and Case decided to hold their ceremony inside the Club, overlooking the Coronado Bridge and downtown San Diego.

No matter the location, we like to make sure our florals enhance the beauty of the venue. For the spectacular Symphony Towers, we added cylinders of orchids and floating candles down the aisle, accompanied by lots of beautiful and sparkly crystals. We also placed Manzanita branches and Phalaenopsis orchids behind the back row, so as not to block the ceremony view.

Lindsey and Case’s “altar” was made out of creatively draped linens provided by Concepts Event Design. We think the draping fit both the elegance of the room and the feel of their wedding perfectly!

After the ceremony, while guests were treated to a swanky cocktail hour, the bridal party brought our floral design to the streets!

Lindsey was an absolutely beaming bride, and she was so much fun to work with. Her all-white bouquet was a cascading vision of white Phalaenopsis orchids. For Case’s boutonniere, we placed a single white orchid on a bed of contrasting greenery.

After the ceremony, we moved the tall wooden boxes of orchids from the ceremony site to behind the sweetheart table. This framed the table, and also highlighted the city backdrop.

The centerpieces were made with white hydrangeas, roses, and stock, with green succulents throughout. We just love the look of white flowers at weddings. Instant elegance!

It was a pleasure to make Lindsey and Case’s floral dreams come true. Best wishes to them!
