Every inch of Stephanie and Carter’s Coronado wedding elevated the idea of a classic wedding with a modern twist. Pink Pineapple Event Design carried out Stephanie’s favorite color palette of black and white with a touch of gold for a timeless look, using tropical leaves as accents, which brilliantly complemented the venue’s own styling. The bride knew she wanted something a little different for her gown, and her stunning beaded Needle & Thread dress was the perfect statement for saying “I do.” Before heading into their elegant reception, the newlyweds got comfortable with photographer Brandi Potter for a few romantic portraits in the courtyard as husband and wife.

Coronado Community Center, Coronado, California
Our colors were black and white, plus gold details — a timeless color scheme which also happens to be Steph’s favorite. It’s the perfect mix of mod and classic.
I knew I wanted my dress to be unique, but I wasn’t exactly sure what I was looking for until I found it. I feel in love with the detail of this dress. I especially loved that the white beading in it complimented my bridesmaids’ dresses.
During our ceremony Carter‘s grandfather read a prayer that has been read at Burke weddings for three generations. It was the sweetest part of our ceremony!
Don’t wait to write your vows! I recommend writing them throughout your engagement, when you’re feeling especially in love- after dates, special moments, etc.
Our photographer Brandi was great! Kind and professional. If I could have another wedding, I’d have her photograph it all over again! Her photos are amazing and the final product is stunning.
HUGE shout out to Nicole with Pink Pineapple Events! I’m forever indebted to her and her organizational skills and creativity. She is the best!
