Undercover Receptions | Tented Wedding Venues

By, November 05, 2017

Rain or shine, tents for wedding receptions have many benefits. Tents are a way of bringing your reception outdoors, while providing the comforts of an indoor space. Along with being surprisingly spacious, tents can be dressed up with stylish lighting and décor. If it does rain, sides can be easily attached, to keep everyone dry and partying well into the night.

Here in San Diego, there are a wide variety of tented options, with different aesthetics for every preference. Check out these photos from local venues that offer tented spaces:

Sana & Pedro – The Best of Both Worlds

By, February 22, 2016

Sana and Pedro were married at the Arbor Terrace of the Grand Tradition Estate in Fallbrook, California. Sana is of Pakistani descent, and Pedro’s heritage is Mexican. Each commemorated their respective cultures with traditional attire, ethnic music and special customs. As you’ll see in the photos below, the result was a wedding bursting with life and color.

During the wedding, Sana wore a colorful gharara by Nomi Ansari . She was decorated with lavish embellishments and intricate henna tatoos by Henna Trendz. Oh ya, and some Jimmy Choo shoes ;)

Pedro wore a traditional Pakistani sherwani for the ceremony, and surprised the guests when he switched into a Mariachi outfit for the reception. They were even accompanied by a Mariachi band for the grand entrance… Ole!

The ceremony and reception sites were decked out to the max, featuring beautiful red roses and elaborate décor by Finishing Touch Wedding Design. To ensure a lively reception, the band stuck around throughout dinner, and even took special requests. We hope you enjoy these highlights from this special day.

As we crossed the bridge, we happened to see a rose lying on the ground. We thought it was the perfect prop to depict these two cultures coming together. What a fun shot!
