This glittery outdoor champagne and blush wedding at Pala Mesa Resort saw Brittany and David’s dream of a romantic, chic wedding celebration turn to reality. Brittany is a self-confessed hopeless romantic, fond of luxurious, soft tones, sparkle and shine. Her gorgeous wedding day choices reflected just that.
We’re talking exquisite, full-length, blush Bill Levkoff bridesmaid gowns, a lush, all-white bridal bouquet of peonies, hydrangea and garden roses, a totally romantic outdoor garden wedding ceremony with aisles of lanterns and blossoms. Their beautiful wedding ceremony included a promise ring and tear jerking vows from David to the couple’s daughter. Their reception featured a next level wedding cake of many layers, a fun edible-glitter doused donut bar by Bakers Dozen Donuts, adorable chair signage, polaroid guest books. All this brought to life by Blush Bella Weddings & Events and photographed by Leah Marie Photography for our swooning pleasure!
“My father married David and I,” says Brittany. “During the ceremony, David got down on one knee and gave our daughter Lola a promise ring. At the reception a very talented family friend sang a beautiful piano rendition of “It’s For My Dad” by Nancy Sinatra for my father daughter dance. Every moment of our wedding was completely magical.”
Congratulations to the stunning couple on their beautiful celebration!
Outdoor Champagne and Blush Wedding
David and I met in high school about 15 years ago. Over the years we had managed to somehow keep in touch but always had significant others. In 2008 we rekindled our friendship and began dating shortly after. We weathered several storms over the years but neither of us could ever give up on each other. Our love and devotion to each other was too strong to ever be broken. We are true soul mates and couldn’t be happier.
The bouquets were filled with hydrangeas, peony’s, roses and garden roses. The flower combination was simply exquisite. My bouquet was all white while my girls had blush added.
My dress was an ivory strapless mermaid style fit with a sweetheart neck line. There was a lace overlay with 3-D diamond clusters all over that just sparkled with every move. The back was button up with crystal buttons. The day of the wedding I felt beautiful, happy and comfortable! I am not much of a heel girl so under my dress were white converse shoes covered in swarovski rhinestones.
I wore a crystal head piece with a loose updo and my veil pinned underneath. My makeup was in between natural and dramatic, brown shadows, heavy black lashes and liner with nude lips.
The bridal party wore Bill Levkoff floor length chiffon blush gowns. I let them decide on how they wanted the top part of their dress since the designer had so many different variations. It worked out perfectly because they were all beautiful! My sister was my maid of honor and I wanted her to stand out. I had a sworavski crystal belt sewn on to her waist and it was fabulous. Each of their shoes were blush/champagne sparkle and I let them choose the style.
My groom wore a charcoal grey Michael Kors tuxedo with a champagne color tie.
The groomsmen wore a light charcoal grey suit with a blush tie and blush rose boutonnieres.
The ceremony was beautiful and of course romantic. The aisle was lined with candle lit lanterns and rose petals. A mason jar arrangement that included peonys, hydrangeas, garden roses and dusty miller were hung from every other chair while the opposing chairs had hanging eucalyptus with a blush pink satin ribbon.
The bell tower was draped with ivory chiffon with a crystal chandelier hanging front and center. Each side of the chiffon draping was tied back with a small flower arrangement. We also had our memory table which was draped in my late grandmother’s lace tablecloth and filled with beautiful pictures of all our loves ones that have passed.
I walked down the aisle to “how long will I love you” by Ellie Goulding. Both my parents walked me down the aisle. Once we got to the end of the aisle my dad walked to the back to begin the ceremony. Everyone was completely blown away because it was a huge secret that he was marrying us. The “no way’s” and the “Oh My gosh’s” by our guests were so cool to hear. The looks on their faces were priceless!
During the ceremony, David got down on one knee and gave our daughter a promise ring.
For our seating chart we used two old vintage windows and had the guest’s names written by table number on the glass.
Our guest book we kept fun. We used a polaroid camera and had out guests take selfies and tape them to our guest book pages with a message. It was fun to look at all the pictures and read the notes the next day.
Our head table was a sweetheart style table but with our wedding party still next to us. Our table had a champagne sequin floor length table cloth while the bridal party had an ivory crushed taffeta. Our table had two vintage candle sticks with hanging crystals and champagne glitter “Mr. & Mrs” sign in front.
We had two different centerpieces for every other table. The first one was a wood box filled with flowers that had a mason jar tied to it with twine. They were insanely gorgeous. The other center pieces were 3 gold candle holders with ivory tapered candles inside three different height cylinder vases accompanied by three bud vases with blush roses.
Each guest table had and ivory table cloth with a champagne and ivory sequin chevron table runner. We had gold chargers and blush napkins draping off the table. Each charger was filled with their favor which was a beautiful custom made candle in an ivory box tied with a champagne satin ribbon. The place cards and table numbers were printed in rose gold foil that were placed in a glitter wine cork.
Our cake was to die for! We chose red velvet with peanut butter cream cheese frosting, bella champagne with raspberry filling and salted caramel with salted caramel cream cheese filling. Our cake was definitely something we wanted to showcase so we had it up near the head table on a wine barrel underneath spot light topped with a crystal “H”.
