This Scripps Seaside Forum Wedding Brought Glitz and Glam to the Beach

May 12, 2018 | Junebug Weddings

Sparkles and glitter might not be your first thought when you think of beach weddings, but Jasmine and Brandon nailed the look in their San Diego wedding at Scripps Seaside Forum. The bride set the tone with a fabulous and glitzy Hayley Paige gown and flower-adorned mermaid braid, and her girls followed suit with mismatched mint green dresses. Events by Rebecca added touches of metallic with lanterns and candlesticks, and Messthetics floral designers added the most beautiful pops of burgundy in every arrangement, including Jasmine’s bouquet and her long braid. The vibe was glamorous yet laid-back, which is a perfect combination for a summer beach wedding, especially for a couple who wanted the natural beauty of the venue and the party atmosphere to be the focal points. Amy Lynn of By Amy Lynn Photography managed to capture the most heart-warming moments, including the couple’s surprise, choreographed first dance and their private sunset walk on the beach.

The Couple:

Jasmine and Brandon

The Wedding:

Scripps Seaside Forum, San Diego, California

Criteria for bridesmaids dresses and wedding fashion vibe: Pizazz, dancing friendly, mint-ish. I wanted all of my bridesmaids to wear something that they felt beautiful and comfortable in so they got to choose their own dress based off of a color scheme (mint family) that was floor length. It was amazing seeing it all come together and to see their personality and styles reflected in the dresses that they chose. 

Our choreographed first dance began with “A Whole New World” from Aladdin and ended with salsa! We killed it, and people were shocked!

Processional – “Back at One” by Brian Mcknight
Recessional – “Sweet Darling” by Fiji
First Dance – “World on Fire” by Slash, “A Whole New World” from Aladdin, and “No Yo Se Manana” by Luis Enrique

Our menu theme was a trip around the world. Brandon and I are both huge travelers and have visited many different countries and wanted food that represented our love for different foods and cultures. One of our favorite countries was Argentina, so we had Bisteca and Chimichurri. We also wanted food from where we met in San Diego so we had a taste of the sea with scallops and black rice. Finally, we wanted food that would represent Sri Lanka because that’s where we were going for our honeymoon, so we served a vegetarian tahini and curry dish.
