When we do our Featured Weddings, these posts are submitted, and from the perspective of, the wedding photographer who shot the wedding. I thought it would be cool to get the perspective of a talented wedding planner- since after all, the planner/consultant is responsible for executing the vision, and making it all come together, in a chic way, on the big day. Wynn Austin of Le Chic Wedding Consulting submitted a gorgeous wedding that she planned, and below is here take on how it all came together...
Casual meets Luxury, by Wynn Austin of Le Chic Wedding Consulting
Vikki and JP's wedding was filled with many unique elements. The ceremony took place at The Mission
in San Diego. This vintage church happens to be the the first mission in all of California, dating back to 1769. Vikki walked down the uneven brick aisle to the sound of the church's choir singing right above her like angels. After the ceremony, the cocktail and reception took place at Tower 23
, located on the boardwalk of Pacific Beach, San Diego. This urban chic hotel is the ultimate socialite's playground.
Cocktails took place on Tower 23's glass enclosed tower deck. Guests enjoyed signature drinks and full ocean views while getting their pictures drawn by caricature artists. The reception took place on the main floor with the seaside ambience set by the 70ft long "wave wall" as the backdrop. After dinner and dancing, guests were invited back to the tower deck to snuggle in the couple's personalized blankets by the fire. When they say opposites attract, nothing hits closer to home than this casual luxury wedding! The amazing images are courtesy of the talented team of True Photography
