Cate & Kyle’s wedding day events were all happening at the gorgeous Omni La Costa so it was fitting that the rehearsal and dinner take place there as well. Being southern California, an outdoor rehearsal dinner by the pool area was the perfect choice! Kyle’s taste had plenty of influence in the Friday evening event. It was a wonderful time for sharing personal toasts, gifts and even a few lighthearted games before the big day.
Cate & Kyle’s guests were welcomed to the Carlsbad Inn with a BBQ on Thursday evening. Lots of hugs and laughs were shared as friends and family reunited and enjoyed a beautiful evening outside watching sunset. We got the chance to head down to the beach with them for a few minutes, which was gorgeous and a nice little time for the two of them to have together.
The Carlsbad Inn is a very special place to Cate and her family. Many of Cate’s younger years involved time spent in Carlsbad.
Here comes the bride!

and be romantic.

Stephanie and Teddy are a wonderful compliment to each other and they are both such kind and loyal people.
After the balcony ceremony, cocktails over looked the golf course and then the guests were greeted into a reception room full of beautiful flowers. Sarah & Jon’s reception kicked off with some witty and heartfelt words my Sarah’s dad. Many of the traditional things took place, cake, toasts, special dances, but then things looked a little different as dueling pianos provided the entertainment for the evening. Yes, there was dancing like with a DJ or band, but it was very interactive and entertaining even for the guests who enjoyed sitting at their tables and visiting. My favorite request was “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” by Sarah’s nephew the ring bearer, who by the time it came up already had fallen asleep from all the fun. The vendor team of Jennifer at Salt Creek and Rachel coordinating for Lilly Lane were a …
