Bride and Groom at La Jolla Country Club

Megan and Tom’s 2023 La Jolla Country Club wedding had all the elements of a dream event. Hosting the reception in the Sunset Room was the perfect choice. The wedding guests entered to a large white arch adorned with florals and candlelight. Greenery hanging from the chandeliers, creating an enchanting atmosphere.

The color palette for Megan and Tom’s wedding featured rich hues of dark orange, light peach, and sunset yellow. De Bloem Co incorporated oak and maple foliage to tie in the fall season. Stunning dahlias in shades of orange and peach mixed with garden roses created a perfect balance between vibrant and delicate.

Megan wore a breathtaking satin sheath gown with elegant draping along the neckline and shoulders. Tom looked dapper in a classic black suit, complemented by a sleek black skinny tie.

At the ceremony the couple exchanged their written vows, both with touches of comedy and sincerity. To symbolize the joining of their lives, they incorporated a handfasting ritual.

Trestle tables at the reception brought in coastal California style. Round-back velour chairs added a touch of luxury and comfort to the ambience. It was a setting that celebrated both sophistication and the casual charm of a coastal wedding.

One of the standout features of the event was the escort card wall. Dark green envelopes calligraphed by Megan, added a personal and heartfelt touch. Inside each envelope was a handwritten note of love and gratitude from the bride and groom. I thought this was such an incredible gesture.
