With tables full of corals and sea shell elements, Amber Karson Events and team planned a spa day to remember for bride Teresa and her important ladies in her wedding. We love how this could translate into the chicest of bridal showers for a much deserved rest and relaxation before the wedding. All captured by Abby Jiu, whose images left us daydreaming of mimosas by the pool.
From the event designer, Amber of Amber Karson Events: There is nothing we quite enjoy more than a relaxing day at the spa with friends. Pampering oneself before your big day is recommended to release pre-wedding stress, jitters and to re-energize for the long days ahead! A spa service is also always a great bridesmaid gift! To kick off a three day weekend of San Diego wedding festivities, our bride Teresa asked us to organize a very special spa day and luncheon for the VIP ladies in her bridal party and family. La Costa Resort & Spa was a perfect venue for the relaxing afternoon.
Personalized tote bags were waiting in each bridesmaid’s locker when they checked in. After services, Teresa’s VIP ladies were invited to the beautiful spa patio for a private luncheon. A seashell wreath adorned the bride’s chair. Vintage shell stamps on the invitation introduced the party’s theme and color palette.
Studio Fiore’s gorgeous centerpiece include lush florals and starfish & coral accents. Spa-inspired cocktails were dressed up with monogrammed paper coasters & sea shell picks to hold fruit garnishes.
