We’ve had quite a few unique ceremony seating arrangements recently and this is one of our favorites. The spiral arrangement allowed for a more intimate ceremony for this smaller guest count then the tradition layout would have allowed. Most couples choose to get married underneath the arch, but this pair chose to use it as an entrance to space. We also loved how they turned the ballroom into a Parisian cigar lounge.

I think it worked out extremely well. Let us know what you think!Once again our Bougainvilleas need to be mentioned. They really do make our ceremony site stand out. They provide such a wonderful backdrop for such a special day.With the Bougainvilleas lining the ceremony site, this archway looks like you are entering a secluded garden.

Here’s the site all ready to go! The large flowers in the center are a great addition that help fill the open space without distracting from the actual ceremony.

Here’s the couple reading their vows to each other. The close proximity of the guests really changes the dynamic of the wedding making it much more personal for everyone.

The Bride and Groom sharing a laugh and a smile. Though weddings can often be stressful, it’s always heartening to see a couple enjoying themselves.

Just married! the bride and groom moments before their first kiss as husband and wife.

The Brides Pomeranian’s lead the couple through the arch on their way out. It looks like they are enjoying themselves just as much as everyone else.

Inside the ballroom where the reception was held, they creatively decorated the space like Parisian cigar lounge.

Here’s another shot of the entire ballroom ncluding the Eiffel Tower backdrop. The space was dimly lit, providing a swanky atmosphere to this fun party.

The lamp centerpieces and the purple uplighting provided all of of the light for this reception.

Here’s one last shot of the ballroom before the end of the night. We really enjoying hosting this event at our venue here in San Diego. We hope to see more like it soon at the Cuvier Club
