Just got Julio Fonyat’s beautiful images back from this sweet union on September 19. Ceremony took place on Central Beach in Coronado with Hotel Del & the glorious Pacific Ocean as the backdrop. Guests were then escorted downtown to The Ultimate SkyBox at Diamond View Tower with another amazing San Diego view & gorgeous high-rise reception.
Striking or taking down an event is a necessary evil for most florists & on this particular night, I was ok with not being at home in my bed at midnight, after some very long design days, because I had the pleasure of seeing my bride, Kristen, lugging a large centerpiece & huge ceremony arrangement in her arms, back to her hotel. She walked half a mile. Then she wrote me an email & told me she wished she could’ve carried more. That’s a serious compliment & one happy bride! YAY!
Sincere gratitude to Kelly Aull & Brooke Lazarski of Mint Weddings for orchestrating another flawless event. They are the best, folks. Big ol’ thanks to Diane Citrowske of Heliotrope for Hospice for designing & installing with me & more importantly, encouraging, nurturing & feeding me. Also, thanks to Karim for striking the event & eating midnight Michele Coulon treats with me.
