Jenny and Drew’s wedding is very near and dear to me. I first met her mom Faye at the Scripps Seaside Forum at the beginning of the planning process, and I instantly fell in love with this great family! Jenny and Drew moved from back east to La Jolla a few months before their wedding, giving us a lot of time to get to know each other over email, phone and best of all in person.

4th of July can be a really tricky time to marry. Do you go full out red, white and blue, or simply pay homage to the day in small nods? Also, how do you give a group of out-of-towners the full San Diego Independence Day experience? Well, first, you start with an incredible venue. We tied in Giuseppe’s incredible eats and gelato (my personal fave), Concepts rentals and florals by yours truly, for a unique, yet traditional day. I especially loved the inclusion of Sadie—Jenny and Drew’s dog. My dear friend Diana brought Sadie for photos and the ceremony, and she is the best behaved pet to date at an I Do…Weddings! wedding. I am also very thankful for the help of the ever talented Rachel Leber and Mike Finn for their tireless help that day. The night was topped off with a beautiful fireworks show, all captured by the talented Kristina Chartier. Jenny and Drew, thank you for everything and Mazel Tov to you both!

Jenny and Drew’s wedding is definitely a show-stopper. Please check out the links below to see where it’s been featured. If you are a fan of the incredible Scripps Forum like I am, you will love these details like floor-to-ceiling draping by Concepts! I combined the design of one incredibly large and long head table to house the entire bridal party and immediate families. In addition, we used round and square tables of varying heights and sizes for the remainder of the guests. We reserved tables for families, and let the remaining guests sit as they wished. We served the meal as food stations and it certainly encouraged mingling throughout the evening.
