Michelle and Trinele wanted a personal, memorable wedding. A special day where they could celebrate their love for one another, while being able to talk and mingle with all of their closest friends and family. It was a family getaway with a wedding in-between. Michelle and Trinele recited their vows to one another under a wood arch covered with purple and white flowers, amongst the breath taking backdrop of Cuvier Park in La Jolla. Beautiful purple rose peddles winding up and down the aisle. The waves crashed behind them as they kissed for the first time as husband and wife. 

After their intimate ceremony, the newly weds and their guests headed over to Prospect Bar and Grill, which they had rented out for their celebration. Tables were set with white linens, silver napkins, and center pieces of long cylinder glass vases with assorted floating flowers and candles. The seating arrangement was very casual and inviting, without seating charts or escort cards. Certain tables were set aside with elegantly framed “reserved” signs for the bride, groom, and immediate family. Personal touches were not overseen; Hershey kisses with a purple heart and the couples names on the bottom, giveaways of small boxes of purple jellybeans tied with purple ribbon and a thank you tag, and individual cupcakes for their guests instead of the traditional slices of cake. The remainder of the evening was enjoyed by eating great food, dancing, taking photos in the mobile photo booth, and laughing with great company. Michelle and Trinele’s goal of a relaxing and loving vibe, where everyone enjoyed each others company was certainly obtained.
