I knew this was going to be a good one… The Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines is a beautiful location for a wedding. The ceremony was held outside in front of the golf course at the bottom of an enormous staircase. Guests then transitioned to the cocktail hour located on the outdoor patio space complete with lounge furniture, bar, and cigar roller. I set up a wireless speaker to transmit the music and announcements to this outdoor space so guests could stay connected to everything happening inside. The Fairway Pavilion ballroom for the reception looked amazing. One of my favorites to date. A few noticeable details: The tables looked modern yet warm with square plates, textured linens, and Manzanita branch centerpieces that had orchids and hanging candles. Amber colored uplights surrounded the perimeter of the room to add warmth to the walls. The cake was spotlighted and featured the same pattern as the linens. Four lounge areas (one located in each corner of the ballroom) created relaxing social areas for guests. A photo booth was available for guest’s to pile in and capture fun moments throughout the evening. The couples monogram was projected down onto the dance floor to add a personal touch. I was hired for tonight’s wedding to provide lighting, act as their wedding MC, as well as, their San Diego wedding DJ. The group consisted of mostly an older crowd so I mixed things up early on in the evening by playing more swing, oldies, motown, etc. than normal to make sure they were happy. As the evening went on I switched gears a little bit and played more current dance music. The older crowd thinned out after about 10pm but there was a core group of dancers that stayed until 11:30. Even though the group was much smaller this was actually the best part of the night for me. They enjoyed dancing to a large variety of music styles and really were focused on having a great time! The excellent team of vendors really made sure the night ran flawlessly.
