Peach, Apricot, and White Wedding at Carmel Mountain Ranch Country Club – Megan and Scott

November 19, 2012 | Christy

Megan and Scott’s wedding day was as dreamy as could be. They chose to be married in San Diego’s oldest church, The Mission Basilica de Alcala, and celebrated at Carmel Mountain Ranch Country Club. Both venues have an old-world vibe that fit the couple’s love for all things vintage to a tee. Their lavish florals included peach garden roses and white orchids as well as fresh green vines that draped from the chandeliers. The overall effect was a romantic, magical garden!

What inspired your personal wedding style, and how did you incorporate your style and personalities into your big day? Ive always wanted a very romantic and feminine garden style for our wedding. I also adore vintage items, so it was important to us that they were incorporated in our wedding. Our wonderful event and floral designer, Aileen of Karen Tran Florals, brought our vision to life and was able to create a dreamy, lush garden ambiance! We choose The Mission Basilica De Alcala for our ceremony because we loved the fact that its one of the oldest churches in San Diego. It has the old world charm that we love, along with gorgeous rustic pews and cobblestone floors. We selected the Carmel Mountain Ranch Country Club for our reception because we just loved how the property is reminiscent of a craftsman-style home. Our reception didnt feel like a ballroom in a hotel – it was so warm and inviting, and an absolute dream.

For the decor, it was all in the details! Aileen incorporated custom brooches, imported lace and vintage tea tins from Europe, and vintage pewter vessels for some of the vases. The club also had large gold chandeliers in the dining area, and we decided to cover them in greenery so guests would really experience the feeling of entering a lush, enchanted garden!

Looking back, what are the moments, decisions or memories that you love the most about your wedding? We loved every moment that we dedicated to planning our wedding, and we loved our wonderful team that created this magical day for us. One of the moments that I loved the most was when my wedding planner, Wynn Austin, helped sneak me up into the choir box at the church right before the ceremony began. Even the choir director commented that in over 38 years he has never had a bride in the choir box! I was able to look down and see a birds eye view of the beautiful church and the florals. Also, I was able to see Scott at the altar waiting for me, along with our closest friends and families. It was my one quiet moment to take everything in before I walked down the aisle. I have to say though, we truly treasure all the memories of our wedding. It was our dream wedding and we will cherish the experience for the rest of our lives.

What piece of advice would you give to a bride planning her wedding today? Enjoy all of the planning aspects and dont let it overwhelm you. Never lose sight of whats important. Infuse your personality into everything and enjoy your wedding day because the day goes by faster than youll ever anticipate!
