I always love it when a couple chooses The Prado for their venue.  With a gorgeous location nestled in the heart of Balboa Park and a top-notch staff, ts such a pleasure working there!  I visited The Prado this week with my wonderful clients Pat and April, who will be tying the knot at there next month.  During our visit, I was reminded of the last time I worked at The Prado.  I have the pleasure of working with Catering Sales Manager, Andrea Pena, once again and let me just say, she is amazing at what she does and SO very pleasant to work with!  So I thought today I would feature one of my favorite venues and the story of a very sweet couple, Heidi and Brian….

Heidi and Brian are one of the most relaxed couples I have had the pleasure of working with.  We met up for a cup of coffee exactly one year prior to their July wedding to discuss the details of their special day.  Although Heidi was a very hands-on bride who wanted to plan the major details of her day, she and Brian needed some help with vendor recommendations, design, and of course a lot of help the month prior to their wedding.

Heidi and Brian fell in love with and chose The Prado, one of San Diego’s most beautiful wedding locations, for their wedding ceremony and reception.  They loved the idea of their wedding taking place in the heart of Balboa Park, especially because of the amazing photo opportunities.

Heidi’s dress was BEAUTIFUL!!!  I absolutely loved it!

I loved how Heidi’s bouquet of flowers paralleled the design of her dress.

And Brian made a very handsome groom!

The wedding ceremony was perfectly executed and so very touching.  Heidi and Brian decided not to see each other before the ceremony and I’ll never forget how Brian gasped and let out an audible “Wow” as Heidi walked down the aisle towards him.

Prior to coordinating the wedding, my team and I made sure the ballroom was set up perfectly. The room was transformed to reflect a relaxed elegance, which pretty much sums Heidi up.

Here are a few more of my favorites…

Everything went perfectly!  I was honored to be a part of your day, Heidi & Brian!  xoxo
