Real Wedding: Kate + Daniel vol. 2

Now for the details! Kate + Daniel's reception was held at The Thursday Club in Point Loma, a charming little Spanish house with 180 degree views of the ocean.

The escort cards were strung across old white shutters {found at a local thrift shop} by twine and close pins. As you walked into the house, you were greeted by a table full of various colors of mums wrapped in burlap. It was such a sweet touch an the guests loved being able to take home their very own mum! Such a great idea for a favor that will be a lasting memory!
We took all the lavender potted plants that were at the ceremony and moved them to The Thursday Club. You can see them in the background below. It was a great way to re-use something from the ceremony, and it made a big impact at the reception site.

The tables were covered in gray linen and each centerpiece held a variety of vintage, wildflower looking florals in old various glass. The Floral Lab did a fabulous job pulling together the theme.

The dessert bar was a labor of love. The bride's grandmother made her famous chocolate chip cookies that were quite the hit, and a friend who is a baker made the red velvet and carrot cake cupcakes. Azucar, a local bakery in San Diego, made a darling two-tier chocolate cake for the bride and groom to cut, and had wonderful lemon bars.
Our favorite part of the dessert bar was the old vintage doors that created the space. They were rented from a local antique store for $30, and that included delivery and pick up! It was so very charming!

As the guests left, they grabbed handfuls of lavender to toss at the newlyweds. I loved the story behind tossing lavender, and the smell was incredible! You can read about the fun tradition here.

This wedding was so much fun. We worked with an incredible team of vendors, and at the end of the day, left smiling and feeling grateful for the opportunity to work with Kate + Daniel. The love in that room was extraordinary, on so many levels, and for that we felt blessed.

K+D, we already miss meeting with you {and you, Jan!} over a cup of coffee, but we know your lives are going to be so blessed and full. We wish you the best in years to come!
