Pala Mesa Resort has an excellent outdoor tent space they use for weddings complete with waterfall behind the cake and head table. Cocktail hour is held just outside the tent on a nice patio area. They have a grass lawn area (with another waterfall) available for the ceremony but tonight I was only hired to help with the reception. This wedding was a referral from another San Diego wedding I did in 2005 so it is always great to bump into past clients. The reception tent looked very light and fresh with mostly summer whites and a little bit of yellow/pink. I projected the couple’s slide show during the end of cocktail hour and the start of dinner. This worked out well because we did not have to “stop” the reception later on to show it. Guests were also moving around at this point in the evening so they could view the show and then make their way to their seats. I looped it a few times to make sure everybody got a chance to see it. One unique idea for the name place cards they used was the butterfly cutouts with each person’s name on it that looked like they landed on the water glass. Dancing went pretty well tonight. The couple enjoys going to Irish pubs so we played some Irish music and it really got everyone up right after the cake cutting. A variety of requests throughout the entire event kept it interesting. It was great working with Kendra. She does an excellent job making sure all the details are taken care of, as well as, making sure the couple is relaxed and stress free.
