Alex & Joel at San Diego Botanic Gardens

Alex and Joel thought of absolutely everything for their wedding at the San Diego Botanic Garden! Blush, ivory and sage were perfect wedding colors for this venue and the Gazebo Lawn was complete with white chiavari chairs and pretty market lighting. They chose a baby bellini and apple ginger sparkler as their signature drinks, which were a huge hit.

Katie & Brice at a Private Ranch

Katie and Brice “got hitched” on a gorgeous September day and we loved it! From their round farm tables to their barrel flower pots, everything about this wedding wowed us. The newlyweds used X-back chairs and a wooden arch to give their ceremony that extra rustic feel. In addition to giving their guests a little bit of that Southern charm, the newlyweds also had cowboy boot bottle openers as favors – love it!

Lawn Games: A Great Way to Entertain Your Guests!

Lawn games are the perfect addition to your wedding reception and are sure to keep your guests entertained!  Some great options include Corn Hole, Giant Jenga, Ladder Golf and Croquet. Here are some of our favorite wedding lawn games that are sure to get both sides of the family bonding in no time. Regardless of age and interests, it is always a good idea to host a few classic yard games at your reception!

The Look: Mismatched Bridesmaid Dresses

Mismatched bridesmaid dresses is a trend that is here to stay. Instead of putting your ladies in the same dress, allow them to choose slightly different ones with varying cuts and styles. Bridesmaid dresses in different hues are also a great option. So long as the color palette flows, all the different dresses will look beautiful side by side. Here are some photos of bridal parties that nailed the mix-and-match look!

Gourmet Sweets for The Perfect Dessert Bar

In addition to a delicious dinner, Personal Touch Dining has a wide variety of mouthwatering dessert options to choose from! From Parisian Macarons to mini churros with caramel dip, we can help you build a delectable dessert display sure to satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth! Below are photos of some of our favorites!

Ashley and Jordan at San Diego Botanic Garden

We’re so happy we could spend the day with Ashley and Jordan at the San Diego Botanic Garden! The day started off with a beautiful ceremony in the Walled Garden, followed by cocktail hour in the Lawn House and the reception on the Gazebo Lawn. The bride and groom sat with the bridal party at a head table, which was adorned with garland and pretty signage. A chandelier hung above the bride and groom’s seats and market lighting was displayed across the lawn. They incorporated the floral theme of the venue by giving their guests flower seeds as wedding favors.

Not only was this a gorgeous wedding, but it was also full of fun and creative ideas. Instead of a traditional guestbook, guests wrote notes to the bride and groom on jenga pieces. The couple also prepared a special wedding coloring book with crayons and set them at each place setting on the kids table. Along with a two tiered wedding cake, there was a delicious assortment of gourmet desserts for the bride and groom to share with their guests!
