L’Auberge Del Mar is a perfect location for weddings because of the multiple outdoor terraces and patios, as well as, the indoor Platinum Ballroom. The plan was to have the cocktail hour outside on the Sunset Terrace and the dinner up on the top Pacific Terrace. The weather today was very stormy with off and on rain so we had to make a last minute decision to pull everything inside. About 15 minutes before start time the rain stopped so we were able to hold the cocktail hour out on the deck but dinner had to remain inside because everything was already set. Our bride really wanted to have her first dance outside so I set up a separate speaker up top and they danced just as the sun was going down.
After their first dance guests moved downstairs to the ballroom for dinner. One fun item that was included with each guest’s wedding favor was an individually wrapped pack of sparklers (to be used at the end of the evening). During dinner the vendors were all talking. Years ago I was the DJ for both the photographer’s wedding, as well as, the videographer’s wedding so during dinner we were all talking. We found out that they both got married 7 years ago in 2003… both in July… and better yet… that their weddings were one week apart from each other!
After dinner we moved into dancing. They were ready! We played about 45 minutes of dance music and opened up the photo booth for guests to have some fun with. Guests had fun with all of the hats and props.
After the cake cutting we held an anniversary dance for all of the married couples. Longest Married Couple: 54 years! Dancing continued for the rest of the evening. Great event and they topped it all off with a sparkler exit!
