Sam and Eric at Mt. Woodson

The red and white color combination made this wedding simply stunning. The classic red rose centerpieces were by Jasmine Creek and really brought the event to life. The gorgeous cake was by Flour Power and included Chocolate, Red Velvet and Lemon Kiss flavors!

Christ Lutheran School at Marina Village

Christ Lutheran chose the Marina Village Baja Room to hold its annual silent and live auction to raise money for the school.  The event featured a dessert station with chocolate fountains and strawberries for dipping, pound cake, rice krispys and an assortment of other mini desserts! The signature cocktail of the evening was a Screaming Eagle that included Southern Comfort, pineapple juice, orange juice, ginger ale and a splash of grenadine!

Rosemary and Jay at Levyland

Personal Touch Dining had the pleasure of being a part of Jay and Rosemary’s rehearsal dinner and reception at Levyland!

A perfect evening for a rehearsal dinner with family and friends!

The reception was beautifully accented with roses and seashells. My favorite thing about the reception was the very cool aquarium cake stand made by Jay!

Trina and Franky at MoPA

The guests at this reception enjoyed Midori Sour, Blue Hawaiian and Lemon Drop signature cocktails! The photobooth was a huge hit and captured the energy of the reception!

Darlington House of La Jolla

Today I’d like to feature one of my favorite venues, the Darlington House.  Everything from it’s charming gardens to the stunning fountain on its Egyptian Patio make this the perfect place to have a wedding. The architecture is absolutely breathtaking with it’s detailed archways and Spanish inspired tiling. When the ocean breeze and sounds of the nearby waves are combined with the gorgeous sun that sets over the house, the place becomes enchanted and filled with romance.  The Darlington House can hold up to 200 guests yet still has an intimate and cozy feel.  Emilie, the Event Manager, is wonderful and will make sure that your special day isn’t anything but perfect.  Below are a few of the weddings that Personal Touch Dining has done at the Darlington House.

California Bank and Trust at NTC

Yee haw!  California Bank and Trust’s all-star employees had a blast at their western themed awards banquet.  This event had everything to keep these cowboys entertained including line dancing, an old-fashioned photo booth,  rodeo clowns and a mechanical bull!  The BBQ style western cuisine was a hit and included tri-tip, jalapeno and cheddar cornbread, and a build your own baked potato and salad bar.  My favorite part – Personal Touch Dining’s warm cherry, apple and peach cobbler!
