We just celebrated Chris and Vienna’s wedding and their Asian-Fusion inspired theme was expertly done! Instead of the usual seated placement that we typically see here at the Cuvier Club, the ceremony took place under our pergola framed by hanging carnations. The guests were standing, which may seem less formal, but the ceremony also felt closer and more personal.
Chris and Vienna’s Guestbook. Nothing fancy, but elegant in its simplicity.
The Cuvier Club Ballroom where the reception took place. The lighting really complemented the other elements of theme and warmed up the whole space.
I liked the ballroom setup so much here’s another picture. The hanging carnations were a fantastic feature to the usual decor
Flower centerpieces. Notice how even the candles match the color of the lighting.
These assorted cupcakes are a very popular alternative to a wedding cake.
The wedding sign outside The Cuvier Club. This style script was used on everything else – table numbers, beverage lists, etc. Not overly busy, but still fun.
The bride reading the vows she wrote to her husband. Original, a few jokes, and not too soppy, everyone enjoyed this moment.

And there’s the ring! Two guests happily look on.
All smiles from the Bride
The ceremony sites fountain fit well with the overall theme
These dyed hanging carnations were an excellent addition to the decor!

The bride moving through the guests. She made it a point to thank every single person who attended. It made the day that much better.
On Saturday we were lucky to host Jessica and Austin’s reception at the Cuvier Club in La Jolla. They must be San Diego natives because their theme was based around local micro breweries that are famous here. It was a really nice event that went smoothly as can be. Thanks for checking out the pictures!
These hand rolled Cuban cigars were a hit at this wedding. Though I wasn’t lucky enough to try one out, they smelled amazing. If your guests, groomsman, or anyone, like cigars, this is a must.
One of my favorite appetizers that the Abbey Catering does, are these delicious hummus and pita bread snacks.Here’s a shot of their tasty wedding cake.
The bride and groom had a local brewery table sign for every table. Of course, they also served these delicious local brews during cocktail hour.
The sweetheart table is always a popular choice and I like how they decorate it. Notice how they kept the flower centerpieces low on all the tables so smiles could be shared across the ballroom.

On the belly bars they had these blue mason jars with candles in them. Neat, easy, and it looks great.
Here are some pictures of the centerpieces and the brewery names designating all the tables.
These were cool party favors that were at every place setting.
Just mix with your favorite vodka and you have a tasty lemonade and blueberry cocktail.
These wooden Mr. and Mrs. signs were on the backs of the bride and grooms chairs. The wooden accent is getting to be a very popular wedding item.
