Edgy, yet romantic. Soft, yet modern. Thats the best way to describe the wedding day of Kelly + Jodie. With both the ceremony and reception taking place at the Scripps Seaside Forum, Kelly and Jolie’s wedding included everything perfect about a San Diego wedding: the perfect weather and nearly 360 degrees of ocean views. Modern details, along with clean and bright colors, complimented the space perfectly, and being as there were many of the couples’ friends and family visiting San Diego from out of town, the entire evening went off without a hitch!
Two of Weddings of Distinction’s special wedding vendors participated in the special day, with Sweet Cheeks Baking Co. providing the teal-colored, tiered wedding cake, and Carmin Cermak coordinating the wedding flowers and floral arrangements in shades of white with gold highlights. Needless to say: perfection all around!

Happy 10th Birthday to one of the special wedding magazines in San Diego, Ceremony Magazine!
Weddings of Distinction as a group, as well as many of our wedding vendors individually, advertise with Ceremony Magazine, and as such, an invitation was extended to celebrate the magazine’s 10th birthday.
The event took place at Rancho Las Lomas, up in the Orange County area, but that did not stop Weddings of Distinction vendors, Sweet Cheeks Baking Co., Sensational Treats, and Kristina Chartier Photography from being directly involved. Sensational Treats brought their mini donuts and snack for the attendees, and Sweet Cheeks Baking offered cake displays to incorporate onto the tablescapes and staging area.
Watch the video below to see just how special the night was, and notice all the work that went into planning and executing such an event. Vendors from San Diego and beyond came together and worked together, not only to network and share ideas, but to honor a magazine that has made a profound name for itself among brides and wedding professionals alike in Southern California!
Our vendors truly at top of the line, and when their respective work gets featured in a high-end bridal magazine, we’re impressively proud. For a few of our amazing wedding vendors, their work has been featured in the latest issues of Ceremony Magazine. Ceremony is an exclusive magazine publication, and to have so many features in the final print, which are distributed all over California, is impressive.
If you’re not able to pick up a hard copy of the magazine, we’ve done the work for you! Enjoy a slideshow of images from the most recent issue, in which: Lois Mathews Design, Kristina Chartier Photography, Sweet Cheeks Baking Co., Betwixt Studio, Concepts Event Design, and Studio Carre’ Photographie are featured!
Reunited and it feels so good….well that is what Paula + Mike McCloskey think! This special couple has a somewhat unique story. They actually worked together for nearly 8 years! Paula was hired to work for Mike at the now closed law firm, Baker & McKenzie. After 8 years of loyal service, though, Paula left to raise her daughter, and it wasn’t until years after that that the two reconnected at Paula’s Christmas party! They knew that if they connected after all that time and a wealth of life experience, then best not to mess with fate! 🙂
They were married in the old Navy barracks in the Liberty Station area of San Diego, Barracks 17 of the NTC Promenade, to be exact. The venue was the perfect backdrop for this established couple. The wedding colors consisted of greens and a rich purples/fuchsia, and even the bride, choosing to be more non-traditional, wore a pale green dress by Custom Made Design! Her hair and makeup were done by Beauty Carriage. She truly looked stunning!
Wedding coordinator and florist, Carmin Design, created the perfect ambiance. The details were simple, yet amazingly elegant and colorful. Catering was provided by Wild Thyme, and the dessert table, supplied by our beloved, Sweet Cheeks Baking Co., consisted of not just a wedding cake (and a football-shaped groom’s cake), but also cupcakes, bars, and bites, giving the 100+ guests plenty of delicious options!
Wedding photographer, Studio Carre’, captured some great images of Paula + Mike’s special day, and even with a quick glance at the images below, you’ll feel as warm and happy about this special couple as we do just to write about it!
