The Doubletree Golf Resort in Rancho Penasquitos dazzles and sizzles for our July Weddings of Distinction luncheon/meeting!

Special thanks go out to Ashley Famalette and Amy Hungerford and their crew from the Doubletree Golf Resort for hosting us for our July luncheon meeting. Our greeting was spectacular as we entered to action stations offering a variety of scrumptious appetizers like flambé of lemon pepper scallops, bruschetta and gazpacho shooters! Lunch and service continued to impress…what a wonderful venue!

A special thank you to WoD members officiant Patricia Coleman and coordinators Krista Murphy and Karen Schulman from Definitive Events for showcasing their services for our meeting. A special shout-out to our guests on the day: David Martiarena from San Diego Paella , Frankie Hartwell from Hartworks Floral, and photographer Bryan N. Miller.

We welcome John Stearns from Plush Lounge to the WoD team as he steps in for the soon to depart Karen Kluchonic. Also moving on and to be dearly missed is Cheli Madrid with St. Tropez Specialty Cakes and Desserts.

Loads of group business was shared, raffle prizes were doled out, referrals were passed about amongst members…a talkative, friendly time was had by all. A special thank-you to photographer Shannon Henry from Studio Carre, Cheli Madrid from St. Tropez Specialty Cakes and Desserts and Paula Rae Anderson from Rae Florae for their contributions to the luncheon meeting.

We’ll see you all next month for another exciting and productive Weddings of Distinction meeting!
