San Diego Botanic Garden Venue Spotlight

This week we’re featuring the San Diego Botanic Garden as one of our favorite wedding venues! This  venue is so gorgeous and has so many different locations on site, which gives couples a ton of different options for their wedding. The walled garden is the perfect ceremony site. Couples can choose to have their cocktail hour in the herb garden, lawn house garden, or the gazebo lawn. Then the reception continues with dinner and dancing on the gazebo lawn!
We love the gazebo where couples can put their dessert station, guestbook table, or even a photo booth. See below for some highlights from this stunning venue!

Gourmet Hors d’ Oeurves Perfect for Your Cocktail Hour

This week on the blog we are featuring some of our favorite hors d’ oeuvres!
Cocktail hour is a great time for your guests to mingle, grab a drink and graze on delicious hors d’ oeuvres. Below are some of Personal Touch Dining’s favorites which include items like Chicken & Waffle Bites, Sirloin & Gorgonzola Stuffed Mushroom Caps, Mini Crab Cakes with Tomato & Jalapeno Relish and Gourmet Sliders with Creamed Bleu Cheese & Crisp Bacon. Another great addition to cocktail hour would be a stationary option of fresh fruits, imported & domestic cheeses and seasonal crudité.

Laura & Adam at Darlington House

Laura and Adam had such a nice ceremony and reception at the Darlington House! We love how this wedding was elegant but had a rustic, country feel. The bridesmaids wore different shades of pink and purple, which added so much color to the wedding party. Their beach photos are gorgeous!
