Two Less Fish – because they had found each other on the dating site, ‘Plenty of Fish’, and because they wanted a beach themed wedding.
This was one fun wedding! The air was full of love, and celebration of life. Abigail and Joe couldn’t have picked a better venue to match their light and breezy theme. Paradise Point Resort is essentially a private island paradise just minutes from downtown San Diego. Few wedding venues in all of San Diego can offer the stunning beauty of Paradise Point’s waterfront setting. Coordination was by Ann’s Plans and Wedding Videography was produced by The Emotion Picture Studio.

Spring is a season of new beginnings. It’a a time when people begin to get out more, and enjoy the outdoors. Well, for those in the wedding industry (and for those getting married), spring is the unofficial start of wedding planning season!
At the beginning of March, the US Grant hotel hosted its annual “Swoon 4 Bridal Event“, and in true fashion, they truly outdid themselves. Many of Weddings of Distinction’s vendors (the US Grant included) took part in this special day, and in doing so, claimed themselves among the finest San Diego wedding vendors.
The day-long bridal event spanned three floors and three ballrooms with loads of inspiration for couples. Whether one is getting married in the fall, or in the winter, the event had special rooms dedicated to inspire the fall or winter brides! Whites and silvers adorned the “Winter” room; vibrant colors and outdoorsy furniture decorated the “Spring/Summer” room. There was a room specifically for groom’s, and there were others for the brides and even the ceremony itself! Food and drink was plentiful, so couples were able to enjoy specialty cuisine from local San Diego wedding caterers. Also, thanks to the donations from local wedding boutiques, brides were able to visualize different bridal looks during the fashion show finale!
There was so much to see and touch and experience; no stone was left unturned. One could have spent the entire afternoon, and many did just that!
So, if you’re getting married in San Diego, there are many reputable San Diego wedding vendors to choose from. Weddings of Distinction is likely to have many of the as a part of our group!

The Dana Resort on Mission Bay hosted Weddings of Distinction’s August luncheon. While August is typically a very busy time for wedding vendors in San Diego, this month’s meeting had a great turnout, with over 20 in attendance. The round-table discussion, while informal, gave those present the opportunity to share stories with the group and offer one another tips and tricks for managing the end-of-summer bustle. A special thanks is due to the catering staff at The Dana, specifically Keith and Kaylee, for not only sharing their space with the group for this meeting, but for the great meal and the tours of the property afterwards.
