Wedding Designs to Inspire: La Costa Resort and Spa Photo Shoot

Hey Ya’ll,

Last week, my YourBASH! business partner and I rolled up our sleeves to stage two wedding ceremonies and one beautiful reception for a photo shoot at the LaCosta Resort and Spa in Carlsbad, CA. We only had a few days to plan and pull together both looks, but with the help of a few great vendors (see list below), everyone was pleased with how they turned out…

For the yellow and white ceremony, the resort itself—which is a clean white throughout, inspired me. As far as the linens and cushions we used, I thought that they complimented the environment that we were shooting in. Meaning, I think that it is always best to work with what you are given and make it feel like the design belongs rather than contradict what is already established.

We used white tufted benches mixed with white leather chairs for the yellow and white ceremony set-up, which created a unique look with a lot of texture and different levels.   Also, because this is a new space for the resort and recently renovated, I thought that this was a perfect color combination to evoke a fresh, clean and joyful feeling.

We added clear ghost chairs for dining, which quickly created a more contemporary and modern look.

TIP: Yellow and white is a great combination for a bride that is wearing a white dress with clean lines and is not afraid of a pop of color!

For the green ceremony set-up, I wanted it to be totally different than the white and yellow! As you can see, it has a much more organic style, with the wood chairs and canopy frame creating a sturdy masculine feel, but the light blue chair cushions and unique combination of flowers softening the space and giving it a sort of garden feeling.

What do you think of the two different designs that we created? Which ceremony set-up would you chose? Let me know in the comment section below.

  1. The first set up is absolutely gorgeous. Actually, I had already planned to incorporate a lot of those elements into my upcoming wedding! Good to know someone else pulled it off so beautifully! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  2. I really like the first one. Yellow really brings cheer and brightens up one’s mood. I have a wedding to go to at the end of March, so it will be interesting to see what her theme will be. Great job on both!
