Cynthia and Jason’s Wedding

The two Orange County locals could not resist a San Diego wedding, after seeing the gorgeous Structure Court Café in Balboa Park! Immediately we booked the location and the romantic December wedding was on it’s way! It was a busy time for both bride and groom, as Jason was in law school and Cynthia was working full time for a State Senator, and was in her first year of her Masters Program. Needless to say they needed a bit of a helping hand, and I was the lucky one to come along side my friend and help her create her dream wedding! I had a blast working with the sweet Cynthia, as her style and taste were impeccable. She also let me run with the decisions, which is always extra fun!

From the minute I first saw Cynthia with Jason I knew it was game over. They are so head over heels for each other and that intensity lasted all the way up until the wedding day. There was not a dry eye in the ceremony after their heartfelt vows! The ceremony took place in the Museum of Art, which is right next door to the Structure Court Café. At 5:00 pm the Museum closes and turns into a fairtale location for ceremony and reception! Guests sat in a circle around the marble fountain and stared up the grand staircase where the wedding party lined up on each side. It is such a unique experience to be able to look up to the bride and groom, and actually see them for the whole ceremony!

From there guests walked through the Museum to check out the world class art and made their way to the cocktail hour, where an 8 piece Jazz band was already rocking out. The cocktail garden is scattered with huge pieces of art and the stunning Balboa landmark for a backdrop! The night was already off to an incredible start!

The reception was the icing on the cake! The night flowed so well, as the dinner, toasts, laughs, slide show, dancing and delicious treats were well on their way! A big thank you to Paula from The Flower Shop, for taking our vision and bringing it to life. The floral work was just incredible and really tied in the modern/elegant look Cynthia and Jason were envisioning. With Jason and Cynthia both coming from Korean families, we made an effort to tie in a bit of that heritage. You can see the Korean detail in the stunning Escort Table Box, with the symbol of “Double Happiness” (which is not only a Chinese symbol but a Korean one) and the chopsticks angled just right on the napkins. Meg from Worboys Design again demonstrated her insane skills with all the stunning print work. Everything from the invitations to the table numbers were created by Worboys Design.

Dinner was delicious, and the service was 5 star. TK&A Catering you never fail. We all know everyone needs a bit of something sweet after a savory steak, so thank you Sweet Cheeks Desserts for satisfying all the sweet tooth’s out there.

Take a look at the gorgeous day. Thank you so much to the amazing Sean Walker Photography, as he did such a great job of capturing all the fun details that went into the special day. Oh and please note this was done on a budget! Getting creative and finding ways to save really pays off!
