Today we’re thrilled to share a beautiful wedding coordinated by A Good Affair Kristin! Her couple, Allison & Ben, tied the knot at the historic Mission Basilica San Juan Capistrano. We love the mix of soft, elegant touches throughout Allison & Ben’s big day contrasted with the beautiful rustic feel of Mission San Juan Capistrano. Check out these amazing images from Brandon Wong Photography (seriously, these glamour shots are beautiful) and fall in love with Allison & Ben’s wedding!

Friday Fab Find ~ Fatty Sundays

For today’s Friday Fab Find, we’re thrilled to introduce Fatty Sundays, a totally amazing, colorful, delicious, Brooklyn-based gourmet chocolate covered pretzel company! What started as a collection of family recipes, co-founders and sisters Lauren & Ali expanded their brand beyond their mother’s kitchen and now share their treats across the country. (We loved getting to know a little bit more about the business by reading their About page on the site.) These decadent treats have been featured by some pretty huge names including Kate Spade, The Small Things Blog, US Weekly, Huffpost Weddings and more so naturally, we wanted to see what all the buzz was about! We got acquainted with founders Lauren & Ali who generously sent us a box of chocolate covered pretzel love with flavors including PB&J, Smooth Mint and Sprinkles…and we were blown away!

With so many unique and scrumptious flavors to choose from, Fatty Sundays really runs the gamut of flavors, offering every palette something delicious and different. Their pretzels make the perfect salty & sweet treat for the dessert table at your next event but don’t take our word for it! Here’s what Fatty Sundays has to say:

WEDDINGS Sweeten up your most special day (and make your guests very happy) with Fatty Sundays & Co. pretzels! With endless creative ideas and customization options for the sprinkle color, packaging and flavors, Fatty Sundays make the perfect favor or dessert bar addition. We can match your wedding color (and taste!) palette to create beautiful confections that both you and your guests will never forget!

After some online investigating, we also fell in love with their blog! It’s a great resource for style tips, New York hot-spots (if you ever get the chance to visit) and some good laughs. 

Wrapping up our review, we had one more question about the brand which has probably come to your mind while reading this article…’why “Fatty Sundays“?’ We loved what Lauren & Ali had to say: “In our home, we affectionately dubbed the last day of the weekend “Fatty Sunday” because it was always a day to kick back, relax and indulge. It seemed only logical to merge the two – our unique, bursting with flavor pretzels with our special family tradition!”

Wahooo! What a way to kick-off our year! Erin & Matt’s incredible wedding at The Resort at Pelican Hill was the heavy hitter of wedding amazingness of our 2013… and to have Exquisite Weddings Magazine feature these lovebirds and their special day on their blog is such an honor!

With iconic and picturesque settings, our previous Pelican Hill weddings have been unforgettable! With its “graceful Italian architecture, panoramic ocean views, [and] lush Mediterranean landscape”, along with its unequaled service, Pelican Hill is an exquisite and timeless venue for the engaged couple with a taste for elegance and grandeur.

“Pelican Hill® offers the amenities of an ultra luxury hotel with the relaxed comforts of a home away from home.”
With bungalow guest rooms and suites, private villas, an incredible 36-championship holes golf course, spa with 22 treatment rooms, exquisite dining experiences, and let’s not forget… exceptional wedding venues and services, The Resort at Pelican Hill is THE place for an incredible getaway and for a majestic wedding or event!

The wedding venues at Pelican Hill:

“The majesty of the natural surroundings, gentle ocean breezes and the feeling that the whole world has taken pause for this special moment — this is the outdoor space that every bride dreams of for her special day. A manicured oval lawn spills out to the end of the ridge, where a timeless, iconic Italian rotunda is perched 300 feet above the ocean.”

La Cappella…

La Cappella captures the drama of its setting with two picture windows that look onto the Pacific Ocean. The fireplace and wood-beam ceiling sets the tone of warmth and intimacy in the room and offers the couple a flexible, indoor space to create a moment they will cherish forever. In addition, the Bridal Lounge allows the bride a quiet space to prepare before the ceremony. La Cappella is steps away from all of the Resort’s selection of event space and features a private entrance from the main hotel.

 Mar Vista Ballroom…
“Though you have all the amenities of our world-class Resort, Mar Vista is designed to offer total privacy, standing separate from the hotel and its guests. Ideally located, it consists of the elegant Mar Vista Ballroom, La Cappella and the Event Lawn with a Palladian-inspired rotunda. A separate entrance and dedicated valet staff ensure complete exclusivity.”

We love getting to work with fantastic couples to design their dream engagement party before we tackle plans for the big day…which is why we are absolutely in love with Danielle & Michael. Their plans for the engagement party at Villa Blanca were right up our alley: Beverly Hills, Chic, Pink…need we say more? Working with the couple to plan their engagement party was an absolutely amazing experience because we were able to indulge our couple’s incredible vision and get to know their friends and family. We can’t wait to see what Danielle & Michael’s big day has in store at the amazing Vibiana in Downtown LA, but for now, enjoy these amazing photos by KLK Photography.
