Inspiration Thursday: Vow Renewal at a Brewery!

It has been said that the best relationships begin
with friendship. When it comes to this breathtaking couple, that could
not be more true. Becky and Jesse, although both from the same
neighborhood of sunny San Diego originally, met on another continent
altogether. They had left their full-time jobs to take on a new
adventure with a non-profit in Paarl, South Africa. There, working
side-by-side, their banter and mutual laughter led to a fast friendship.
Somewhere along the way, however, friendship got flirty. Their
comradery blossomed into love. Adventurous and goofy, this pair grew to
become much more than just partners in life. They became husband and
wife and partners in business: co-founding their business coaching
organization, Idea Lust Life. Whether taking on dates or new clients,
they continued to experience one adventure after another. In the blink
of an eye, this heartwarming duo had already taken on years of love,
adventure and career success.
To reflect on the years gone by and those
to come, they decided to celebrate with an anniversary brunch to really
cheers to. Pampering the smart and beautiful, Becky the morning of the
celebration, Becky was treated to a full bridal beauty experience,
reminiscent of her own wedding day. She donned a beautiful gown and
breathtaking accessories from Elle Bridal Boutique. Her hair was
transformed into a magnificent updo by Shalon Shear Envy Pacific Beach
and makeup done to perfection by All Frills Beauty. Such pampering was
far better than imagined as she was feeling like a queen. Then came the time
came for the guests to arrive. An anniversary celebration worth toasting
to with good food, good friends, and a good atmosphere. These were the main
components that made Becky and Jesse’s wedding anniversary brunch so
special. Becky and Jesse invited friends and family to this celebration
at The Brew Project, a beautiful venue in the Hillcrest neighborhood in
San Diego.
Upon entering, it was immediately evident that everything was
planned to perfection. From Becky’s fabulous heels a la Ella Belle
Shoes to the Simple Presse Design stationery that had everyone ready to
revert from email to letter writing, each aspect of this anniversary
brunch event embodied this couple’s love and the light-hearted
celebration they dreamed of. It was the little things provided by each
vendor that truly pulled this event together. As Charles Eames once
said, “the details are not the details. They make the design.” Such
details included the beauty of the table design from Not My Dish. The
party goods that had everyone asking for the company’s business card were provided by
Starry Eyed Event San Diego. The drop dead gorgeous gifting of Gaspara
Floral. The magnificent flowers provided by Lovely Blooms Florals. Each
of the well-planned visual aesthetics were key of capturing the love and
celebration of Becky and Jesse’s love. This happy couple ensured their
guests’ taste buds were celebrating too. Treats, especially the
sigh-inducing cake, from Simply Carrot Cakes put the cherry on top of
the event. The event designer, Empire Design
Events, pulled all the details together was the overarching creative director. When event design is your passion, you put your heart and soul
into every event you create. For this one, it was all about celebrating
Becky and Jesse’s adventurous, loving relationship…and was exactly
what happened.
A toast to that – and to the happy couple, Becky &
