Matt & Elena are one of the most loving couples, which quickly endears them to anyone in their presence. Their casual, easy nature and fun style makes them a dream to work with, too! Three San Diego Weddings of Distinction vendors were lucky enough to be in their inner circle and contribute to their wedding- from design to treats and eats! Elena chose to work with Paula Rae of Rae Florae, together they decided to pull from her love of orange & green- University of Miami colors.. the place where she and Matt started their romance! Roses and rose petals in the most yummy tangerine shades combined with green hydrangea, ribbon wraps of fun striped orange and green, sliced citrus to play on their invitation design, and pops of white to make it crisp! Kristie Emmons from Continental Catering set the Darlington House with natural wood tone chairs & round tables with a clean palette of green and white- And of course prepared the delicious eats from appetizers to dinner. Finishing off the evening, Sweet Cheeks Baking Co. created an adorable cake with their orange tree wedding motif perfectly painted, and marzipan oranges that looked as real as can be! Final surprise- a groom’s cake for loving the Red Sox! Congratulations Matt & Elena!
