A Grand Del Mar Wedding Coordinated by Details Defined | Anna and David

By, April 11, 2013

When we started planning Anna and David’s gorgeous September wedding, we knew it would be well-suited for a venue such as The Grand Del Mar. This couple is simply brimming with style, as you can see from their showstopper wedding.


After months of planning and preparation, tastings and fittings, and plane rides and phone calls, this was their moment. Following a sentimental ceremony that included family and friends from all parts of the world, Anna and David finally shared a kiss as husband and wife.


Before all of the guests arrived, we gave Anna and David a quick peek of their reception room. They were simply thrilled with the results!  Check out some of the amazing details that represented their elegant and glamorous style.


One of the best parts of working with Anna and David was getting to know their family and friends. Many of the attendees traveled long distances to be there, including Anna’s father and sister, who flew in from Russia! It was fun to be surrounded by such a lively and energetic group. With all the laughing and smiling, there was never a dull moment!


Anna and David’s cake was as dazzling as they were!


Here at Details Defined, we work with brides and grooms from all walks of life, all with a unique vision and style. Together, we were able to create the most magnificent celebration for Anna and David, and we loved doing it!

An Elegant Evening Wedding Featuring a Bridal Gown from “The Bustle” | Del Mar, California

By, March 18, 2013

Helping brides find their dream wedding gown is an amazing experience, and it happens daily at The Bustle! For example, when Brook and Shahin celebrated their November nuptials at The Grand Del Mar this year, they were perfectly dressed for the occasion. Our bridal boutique, located in Del Mar, California, was very happy to help Brook look her best!

Typically, brides will try on many gowns during their appointment at our boutique. However, Brook spotted her dream dress right from where she was sitting, and tried it right on. Her entourage convinced her to try on a second gown, just to “be sure,” but Brook had already settled on her dream dress.


In all of our experience, we had yet to meet a bride who knew within an instant which dress was perfect for her.  The gown Brook chose was a Maggie Sottero named Fiorella, and it featured a beaded strap that she particularly loved.


And, how dramatic is the back of this dress?  What a perfect fit for The Grand Del Mar.


Brook’s veil had a gorgeous colored-ribbon edging, which we custom ordered from Toni Federici to match the color of her gown.


The pewter color of the strap gave the satin gown a lavish and creamy feel. Brook’s gown perfectly complemented her bridesmaids’ dresses and floral colors. With its elaborate rouching and pick ups, Brook’s gown mastered every detail.


Usually, as brides-to-be sip champagne and browse the many styles we carry, we also interview each one to make sure we know the look they’re after. Brook made this process incredibly easy!  From that first appointment, all the way through her alterations, it was an honor working with Brook. We just love how happy she looks with Shahin in the photo below!


At The Bustle, we like to think we’re pretty good at making bustles look magnificent!


We love working with our brides and, just like Brook, we form close relationships with each one. We carry designers such as Stella York, Cymbeline Paris, Badgley Mischka and Lillen Collection to name a few. Our gown prices are great for any price range, from $1,200 all the way up to $9,000.  Whatever budget, style, and look a bride is after, we have it. We wish Brook and Shahin the very best. Congratulations!

Stealing a Kiss | Wedding at The Grand Del Mar | March 1, 2013

By, March 01, 2013

In this installment of our Photo of the Week, we’re highlighting one of the important details of the big day – the ride! Judging by this photo, we have to agree that being chauffeured in a classic Rolls Royce is a perfect way to travel.

This fun couple stole a kiss from the back seat, and definitely made their grand entrance at The Grand Del Mar in style.
