janell + matt’s ultimate san diego wedding part 2 | all in the details

Now that you have all met Janell and Matt, this year’s lucky winners of the Ultimate San Diego Wedding contest, let’s take a look at the marvelous details that went into creating this dream come true!

Courtney Tibbets (After the Engagement) was selected by Bridal Insider to design this year’s USDW. Her design concept and main theme for Janell and Matt’s big day was “Brilliantly Beautiful Brunch”, a combination of bright, springtime colors that would create a cheerful and intimate setting within the quaint Amy Strong Castle at Mt. Woodson.

There were so many wonderful wedding vendors that donated their time and talents to make this creative vision a reality!

Fun, funky, fresh bridesmaids’ necklaces by KChicDesigns.

Cheerful florals created by Exquisite Blooms , bridesmaids dresses by Nordstrom, and stylish grey suits by Friar Tux Shop

Look at all those lovable little buttons! So fun.

These cute little round signs from Nic.Roc.Designs adorned various spots around the property and really added to the overall color scheme and playful touches. And of course, they echoed the sweet invitation suite!

Courtney placed two long king’s tables in the main dining area for the delicious brunch, with a sweetheart table for Janell and Matt at one end. It was a perfect grand entrance for the bridal party as well as the bride and groom!

The guests were greeted by adorable little designer chocolate favors by SoBelle.

And OMG, look at this cake by Hey There, Cupcake! A cinnamon-flavored cake in the shape of a stack of pancakes, complete with syrup and a butter pat on top? Killer. 🙂

Courtney’s vision of a brunch-themed wedding was brought to life by Personal Touch Dining. They provided a delicious spread of breakfast goodies that included french toast with all the fixins’, an omelette bar and an eggs benedict bar, personalized with the Bride & Groom’s last name!

Guests had many fun little surprises in store during the day! Here is Courtney’s  “Sweets Shoppe”, filled with bacon pancake cake pops from Cake Ball Love, gourmet stuffed cookie chews by The Cookie Chew, mini-mimosa trifles from Sumi’s Oven,  chocolate props (mustaches and lips on sticks, from Tailored Sweets) for the photobooth room, provided by Jasper with After the Engagement , as well as various candies, gummi chews and chocolates provided by A Candy Store . Outside, the desserts continued with “party donuts” from Sensational Treats. Yum!

Everything that went into Janell and Matt’s wedding was so meticulously planned, with attention given to the overall color scheme. Courtney really hit it out of the park! 🙂

Once the party had ended, Janell and Matt were whisked away in this huge limo provided by Elite Image Limo.

Such a spectacular day! Thanks to everyone who donated their services to hep Courtney create the perfect day for Janell and Matt! 🙂
