For Victoria and Kyle, being high school sweethearts and both coming from large families (who already know each other so well since the couple dated for quite some time), their wedding was sure to be a big, fun, highly anticipated celebration! The couple chose to wed at The Prado in Balboa Park, the same venue Victoria’s parents were married at 25 years ago! It was an honor for them to be able to get married in that same historic location and her family and friends couldn’t agree more as 95% of the guests lived out of town.
For their ceremony, they decided to go very classic with white, ivory, with touches of green to enhance the already beautiful landscaping the garden has to offer. As guests transitioned into Cocktail Hour and the Reception, so did the design and colors. Victoria is Spanish and Italian, so as a nod to her families’ heritage, she wanted to bring in some Spanish and Italian flair to the design with deep magenta red tones mixed with peaches, oranges and greens. The large variety of flowers from peonies, cymbidium orchids, roses, hanging amaranthus and bougainvillea when arranged together were breathtaking. We just adored spanish tile table numbers that added the pop of blue to the tables. Additional Spanish tiles were also seen during Cocktail Hour on the escort card table as urns housing beautiful burgundy, ivory, and tangerine roses, enhanced the venue perfectly. Rather just one flavor of wedding cake, guests feasted on carrot cake and lemon cake with bavarian cream with fresh berries. As guests danced until the late hours of the night, their senses were met with smells of tacos and quesadillas, another fun touch to pay homage to the families’ history, and who doesn’t love a good late night bite?
