A very intimate wedding at the Rancho Bernardo Inn Grenada Room. This wedding was for around 40 of our bride and groom’s closest family and friends. The bride & groom are planning two weddings… one here in the United States and the other wedding back in Japan with the bride’s family. Since the wedding in Japan will mostly represent the bride’s heritage (with a few things mixed in for the groom) the wedding here in San Diego mostly represented the groom’s Scottish heritage (with a few elements to represent the bride).
The ceremony was held out on the Buena Vista Terrace overlooking the golf course. I played some bagpipe music they selected and the groom was dressed in a traditional kilt. Cocktail hour then moved to another outdoor patio/grass location just outside the reception room. Guests were invited into the Grenada Room for dinner and dancing. Once we kicked off dancing I was a little nervous because it didn’t start off with a bang like most larger receptions. I wasn’t expecting a huge wild party with only 40 people but I wasn’t sure if they would warm up throughout the evening. Let’s just say that was not a problem… Once we got into the music a little bit the guests were out there tearing it up. We not only kept things going until the end but actually extended the party for an extra hour (for a total of 7 hours which is fairly long for a ceremony & reception – especially for a smaller group). They were there to have a great time!
A few unique items tonight: The name cards and the cake cutting set representing the bride. Some excellent chocolate favors that looked like small purses… our bride’s favorite accessory. The water effect lighting added a cool visual effect on the dance floor and ceiling.
