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!

A View of San Diego | Wedding at The University Club | February 22, 2013

By, February 22, 2013

For our Photo of the Week, we bring you this gorgeous overhead image of San Diego. It was captured at Lindsey and Case’s wedding at The Univeristy Club. Fun fact: The University Club sits in the penthouse of San Diego’s second-tallest skyscraper, Symphony Towers, which is just a foot shorter than the One America Plaza building!

This photo captures many iconic San Diego landmarks, including the Bay, the Coronado Bridge and the white “sails” of the Convention Center.  If you look closely, you can see the hills of Tijuana, Mexico along the horizon, and the dome of the future (currently under construction) new Central Library.

Down the center of the photo is 8th Avenue, which takes your eye straight to home plate at Petco Park. And directly in front of the Symphony Towers, you can see the CHASE Bank building, home to San Diego’s Exquisite Weddings Magazine! What other San Diego landmarks can you spot in this photo?
