Hitched: Cape Cod-Inspired Hotel Del Coronado Wedding

Megan and Ian are one of our all-time favorite couples. Really. They just radiated happiness and fun and all of our meetings were approached with cheer and laughter. The result was a relaxed, beautiful and quite incredible Cape Cod-Inspired wedding at the historic and legendary Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego. Both from the East Coast, Megan and Ian wanted to fuse their upbringings and tastes with their new home in SoCal, so we got to work dreaming up funky ideas for dining {like a New England-style crab boil}, table numbers {wooden buoys market each table with a port name} and vintage ferry ticket escort cards.

The bouquets by Grand Floral were heavenly…perfectly summery and clean and crisp. The gents donned coordinating boutonnieres with nautical rope accents.

The ceremony backdrop was the right dose of laid-back and breezy. A planning tip: if you’re considering a beach wedding: be sure that you have ample sound for the ceremony. The wind can carry sound away from your guests unless you’ve got a DJ or sound technician to ensure it’s just right.

We hand made about two dozen muslin fabric flags that fluttered in the breeze so gently and created a perimeter around the space {on a public beach} and lent that extra touch of sailboat nostalgia.
