Sweet Love at La Costa Resort and Spa


I am so pleased to share this amazing film by Daniel Chae. Not only do I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the music choices, I love the subtle, unique flare of his style. It’s a slightly different format than I am used to seeing and I really enjoyed it. I think you will too.

Jenna and Adam new exactly what they wanted their special day to entail…an elegant and stylish, fun filled celebration at the beautiful La Costa Resort and Spa. Jenna is a teeny, tiny little thing, chalk full of spunk. As for Adam, he is the cool, soft spoken man with nothing but love for his bride. And you can’t miss the lovable little Jack (Captain Jack Sparrow) that graced us all with his 3 lbs of fabulousness.

Thank you Jenna and Adam, for allowing us to be part of your gorgeous fun filled day.

A Few of My Favorite Things! Episode 2

Celebrity Wedding Planner - Jessica Gillon

Jessica Gillon-Wedding & Event Producer-Owner of Events by Design

So I decided it might be time for another addition of “A Few of My Favorite Things”. I have found that some of my greatest discoveries have come from word of mouth from a friend, family member of colleague. So, hopefully, you will take one or two (or more) from today’s bog post.

1. Pinterest!       Follow Me on Pinterest

Now, most of you are learning about Pinterest for the first time in this blog spot…but it is most definitely my new favorite things. In fact, this wedding planner has become quite addicted to it! I love the design ideas, the DIY project ideas (and I have to admit I am NOT the DIY type, but I have found some amazing things on there), hair and beauty ideas, amazing pictures of babies and puppies that will melt your heart and images of Bucket List Destinations.

Here is an example of one of my favorite did bits of info I found on Pinterest.

waves in hair

Waves in 15 minutes! Section hair into 5-10 big sections then braid each in a loose braid. Run a flatiron over each braid, let them cool down, spray hairspray and undo the braids.

Estancia in the Fall

Dan and Michelle

2011 was Events by Design’s year of unforgettable clients. It was a year of nothing but amazing, appreciative, kind couples who will remain in our hearts forever. Dan and Michelle were no exception. Planning their wedding was one of the most fun experiences of my career. We all became very close and to quote “Events by Design will be our event planners forever!” Good thing, because we love you too! When I took Dan and Michelle to Estancia for the first time, it was like love at first sight. In fact, I’m pretty sure they still go about once a week even though the wedding is over. Here is a look at Dan and Michelle’s very special fall wedding at Estancia Resort and Spa. Flowers courtesy of the amazing Tam Ashworth of Isari Flower Studio

Looking Back…From a Bride’s Perspective

As we enter 2012 and embark on our 10th year of weddings, I thought a great way to start off a successful year would be to hear from an EbD bride. Tess Gamboa (now Mrs. Tess Meyers!) is one of the most creative, intelligent, talented and descriptive bride’s I have ever worked with! Here is a look back at her wedding…from HER perspective.
