Sweet Catholic Wedding at St. Therese of Carmel and The Santaluz Club

St. Therese of Carmel is a gorgeous Catholic church, so I am always giddy when couples choose me to help plan their weddings there. Ed and Melissa were visibly in love when I met them and I watched their love and devotion to each other grow throughout the wedding planning process.

The traditional Catholic ceremony included several family members of the bride and groom and celebrated their strong tradition of Catholic faith.

After the ceremony, guests traveled a few miles East to The Santaluz Club for a lunch reception in their white wedding tent.Salas_0500

The couple wanted a simple, classic and elegant white wedding with calla lilies and navy blue accents. FloralWorks and Events provided the navy table linens and created the tall centerpieces featuring the gracefulness of the flowers.

Tiffany Blue Sparkle Wedding at Immaculata and Westin San Diego

When Chio told me her wedding colors were Tiffany blue and silver, I knew we would get along. As you know, my silver desk is surrounded by Tiffany blue walls in my office. And when the couple selected the Immaculata parish on the USD campus for their ceremony, I was in love with them!

The parish is so beautiful and grand that it doesn’t require much decor. The couple selected two all white floral arrangements to display on pedestals on either side of the altar.

The church pews were decorated with small white floral bouquets to line the main aisle.This parish truly is one of the most beautiful venues in our city.

After the traditional Catholic ceremony, the couple and their guests traveled downtown for their reception at the Westin San Diego.Perez_0570

At the Westin, guests were greeted with a “Something Blue” cocktail and silver wedding bell place cards, to keep with the color theme.Perez_0588Perez_0590

The ballroom sparkled with silver chiavari chairs, crushed taffeta linens in snow and silver rimmed charger plates. Pale blue uplights added pops of color along with the Tiffany blue napkins.Perez_0587Perez_0623

Traditional Catholic Wedding at Founders Chapel, University of San Diego

I was very excited to work with Jay and Veronica as they were married at one of my favorite places, Founder’s Chapel at the University of San Diego. As a USD alumna myself, this chapel holds a special place in my heart. The couple hired Stephanie Rose Events to coordinate all of their wedding details about 2 months before their wedding day.

The bride was radiant in her gown and was surrounded by her family and closest friends as she was getting ready.

The groom was calm and happy waiting for his turn to walk down the aisle.

The bridesmaids wore a vibrant red and the groomsmen matched with their ties and red rose bouts. The flower girl and ring bearer were adorable and practiced their walk all morning so they would be perfect for the wedding. Such committment!

Our Pretty New Office

I am so excited about the new office space for Stephanie Rose Events! It all started rather innocently with the purchase of the silver Hollywood Swank desk and matching desk chair. It is like sitting behind a gorgeous jewelry box! When the desk was put into place in the office the beige walls suddenly looked drab in comparison. So one wall was painted the happiest wedding color of all, Tiffany blue. Another wall was papered with black and white damask print and the window was framed with pale blue silk drapery panels. The lighting needed updating as well, so the fantastic chandelier was hung in the center of the room. Family wedding photos from the 1960s, 1940s, 1930s and 1906 are hanging on the walls signifying our favorite thing about weddings – the joining of two families to create a new family with shared traditions. Take a look and let me know what you think. And thank you to San Diego DJ & Video for the photos!
