Kristen and Brandon wanted an intimate, elegant, romantic wedding with water views. The 32nd floor ballroom and terrace at the Manchester Grand Hyatt was just the right spot with stunning views of the San Diego bay. The twinkling lights of the city made for the perfect backdrop for their reception!
The couple put extra thought into their wedding details to make the day extra special. None of the bridal party wore traditional matching bridesmaid dresses or groomsmen tux’s. The goal was to go designer chic and let everyone wear something they loved. Bridesmaids selected different style dresses from their favorite designers, all in navy to tie them together. Groomsmen selected black Hugo Boss suits with navy YSL ties. They also they asked their guests to wear their wedding colors of navy, white and black. Another detail we loved: the couple created a “wedding wall” (pictured below!) full of their guests wedding photos, it was a uniquely personalized event that made everyone in attendance feel truly included.
