Celebrating Ceremony

Weddings of Distinction is proud to be one of the newest advertisers with Ceremony Magazine-San Diego.  So when we received an invite to celebrate with other amazing southern California wedding vendors, many in our group were very excited to join in on the festivities.

So Cal Weddings

Ceremony Magazine held it’s semiannual party, and the southern California “Pure Wedding Ingenuity Event” took place this year at the beautiful Talega Golf Club in gorgeous San Clemente, CA.  Many of the best wedding vendors in southern California were in attendance, and a select few were asked to set up displays and/or samplings.  Innovative floral designs were set on beautiful tabletop settings; masterful food from WOD Member/ San Diego wedding catering company, Continental Catering, an open bar, and exquisite dessert satiated all the guests.

As a group of individual wedding vendors in San Diego, Weddings of Distinction vendors are honored to be among so many  prestigious wedding vendors from southern California.

Ceremony Magazine Party

Besides great company, the event happened to take place on the rare occasion of a Blue Moon!  What a perfect night: filled with food, drink, music, and lunar observations!

news + press :: august meeting at the glass door

Amazing views and a gourmet lunch: we got a little spoiled at last month’s networking luncheon at the Glass Door.  Located in the heart of San Diego’s Little Italy neighborhood, the Glass Door restaurant is located in the lovely Porto Vista Hotel.  Boasting amazing views of the San Diego Bay/Marina, the Glass Door restaurant is super posh and sophisticated (perfect for a rehearsal dinner), so naturally, we wanted to take a Weddings of Distinction luncheon to the space.

Weddings of Distinction Meeting

This month was a little bit different.  Usually we have respected guests visit our simple networking lunch, and one or two will give a short presentation about their business.  This month, though, we kept our presentations internal, meaning August was all about social media marketing.  Thanks to Shannon Henry of Studio Carre’ Photographie and Janine Abdallah, her trusted colleague, those in attendance we schooled on social media 101!

Combining education with networking: a great combination for business success.

REAL wedding :: cherie + cameron

San Diego is the perfect place for a destination wedding, and for the couple featured in this REAL wedding, San Diego was an easy choice!  Cherie and Cameron are both New Yorkers, and they wanted the San Diego sun to be their backdrop for their unforgettable nuptials!

Their fabulous wedding took place on a perfect May day at the gorgeous Bahia Resort Hotel.  The theme: nautical.  Lots of blues, yellows and whites, and every element perfectly coordinated with the couple’s sea-loving theme.  They were married outside, with the water behind them and palm trees giving the illusion of their own, private outdoor oasis.

Being as the couple was not local, they relied on communicating with vendors via email and over the phone, so for Cherie and Cameron it was important to find wedding vendors they could trust.  Fortunately, they had two of Weddings of Distinction’s finest: wedding cake specialists, Sweet Cheeks Baking Co. and wedding DJ with a plan, Merrylin, Disc Jockey and Emcee of Artistic Productions.

In the end, Cherie & Cameron praised their vendors for creating the “Best Wedding Ever!”  It was romantic; it was fun; and it was full of surprises (think Bollywood ‘First Dance’ mix and a Flash Mob father/daughter dance). Never a dull moment, but then again, when you hire the right wedding vendors, the party should be nothing but fun and dance.
