The wedding of Marwa and Hassan recently took place at The Grand Del Mar, San Diego’s premiere luxury resort. She is from Iraq and he is from Egypt. This was a two day wedding that observed their cultures and traditions. We’re awaiting photos from both days and can’t wait to share them with you. In the meantime, we’re sharing photos from their engagement session with Lin and Jirsa Photography. They had so much fun changing outfits and enjoying a fashion style shoot in the city and on the beach. Their love and joy is evident in this series of images and they prepared for a beautiful wedding and an even more beautiful marriage. Come back soon to see the wedding images. You’ll be glad you did.

We’ve been busy bees at Wedding Elegance, so we hired a Social Media & Events Intern to help with the workload. Meet Linda K. our cute as a button intern!
She started interning with Wedding Elegance in July and has since attended a tasting session, dress rehearsal, AND assisted with a wedding the day of! Not only has she been “out in the field,” but she’s also been working on maintaining our Pinterest and blog. Here’s some more awesomeness about Linda!
Why did you want to go to into wedding/event planning?
Wedding planning has always been an interest to me because of the aesthetic process and detail that goes into planning and executing the event. I would love to learn more about wedding planning in ethnic weddings from start to finish and grow my creativity from the different aspects of wedding planning from invitations, to color themes, decorative pieces and other design aspects. I am also a hopeless romantic at heart so weddings have always fascinated me since I was a young girl.
Here at Wedding Elegance, it’s all about the “Wow!” factor. We were proud to be a part of the annual US Grant 2012 Wedding Showcase: Love, Etc. this past weekend to demonstrate just that! Hundreds of attendees were treated to the latest in bridal trends, sensational entertainment, and spectacular event design.
This showcase was a great opportunity to roll up our sleeves and create something eye-catching and luxurious that has never been seen before. The basic idea was centered around the romance of bold pink and vibrant red hues and the extravagance of gold and silver.
As you can see in the inspiration board below, this design was heavily influenced by the latest and richest trends in fashion, particularly fur; and was in turn balanced with modern, clean lines for a sophisticated effect.
We were privileged enough to collaborate with the fabulous Shawna Yamamoto, famous for her chic and cutting edge style, to create this stunning event design featured at the showcase. Her one-of-a-kind florals and backdrops infused a rich, exotic feel to this Mod lounge-style design.
And then, the design was brought to life!
Sumptuous florals were flanked by matted metallic vases standing atop reflective boxes. The china was carefully selected and paired with silver chargers and fine linens for a sophisticated effect. Lush cushions added a more intimate atmosphere to a set of lounge furniture. Finally, the lighting tied it all together and brought you “Mod Romance Goes Uptown.”
The end result was a showstopping lounge setting dripping in vibrant color and a sultry touch of romance. From the fur table runner to the brightly polished silver to the recurring owl motif, brides were stunned by the intricacy of Nahid’s beautifully executed vision.
Thanks to all of you who came out and joined us! For fabulous design and styling ideas for your wedding or next social event, call Nahid!
