It’s Friday and we could not possibly be happier! Woo, what a week! It’s been quite a whirlwind, and the bad weather didn’t help, that’s for sure. But not to worry, because we know that today’s feature is going to warm you right up and put the biggest smile on your face!

Adriana and Mike’s wedding was simple, classy, and included a mariachi band which is just the best thing ever.

We loved the light pink in the decor and bridesmaid dresses, and especially adored the bride’s wedding dress – utter perfection. It’s not everyday that we get the opportunity to feature an Adriana, so today’s feature is extra special just for that! 🙂

“We have known each other since High School, but started dating when we lived in San Diego. Mike was Marine stationed in camp Pendelton, and I was finishing up school at San Diego State University.  When I returned from studying abroad that winter, I asked Mike to come out with me and friends for a birthday celebration, (January 2005) and we started dating since then. We lived in San Diego for a long time and eventually moved to San Francisco where we still live. We dated for about ten years, were engaged for about three and half and now we are married,” says Adriana.


“Mike took me to the Top of the Mark in San Francisco, and proposed to me looking over the entire city.  It was beautiful and unexpected,” mentions Adriana.


“We chose light pink and creams with lots of greenery. I wanted it to be soft, elegant, simple and classy. The setting was in an hacienda style courtyard, where we tried to merge simple and soft wedding decor with a Mexican setting.
The food was mostly mexican, and the Hotel did a really good job with preparation. For appetizers we had: cheese stuffed gorditas, samosas, chicken taquitos.  Dinner: all tables had chips, salsa and guacomole (that was my special request, I love chips and salsa), we had a mexican inspired salad followed by main course of  steak fajitas, cheese chile relleno or chicken breast in poblano sauce, it was all platted.
For dessert we had our wedding cake which was vanilla with a custard cream and fresh strawberry fillings.  Towards the end of the evening we had a churro station with two dipping sauces – mexican chocolate and cajeta (they were a hit).
We had an open full bar, the bartenders and staff did an awesome job going around the tables and making sure the guest always had a drink. We had a memory table for those who couldn’t be with us, and also a polaroid station for guest to use and sign our guest book with,” says Adriana.


“The planning process was great.  Bonnie really worked with me to help me understand what my options were and talk through ideas with me.  She also understood our budget limitations, and went above and beyond to incorporate that in her suggestions.  The whole wedding looked above what I expected and it was a lot to do with Bonnie and her creativeness.
She was super responsive and always had a positive attitude.  She made me feel at easy through the whole process and was able to talk me through things when I was getting stressed over something.
She surprised me with incorporating pink napkins on the dinner tables.  We had talked about it but I was already stretching the budget and didn’t want to add one more thing, she felt the napkins added a pop to all the tables and I was really happy she did that, I noticed it right away!” says Adriana.


“We had a mariachi band for our cocktail hour and we walked out to one of their songs after the ceremony, I recall hearing them right when the ceremony ended and it sounded beautiful.
The wedding itself was overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the breeze was perfect, and not a could in the sky.  Mike’s dad was our officiant and that was really important for us to have someone who we knew marry us.  A third of the wedding guest were part of my Mexican family who don’t speak english, during the ceremony one of my bridesmaids translated a portion of the ceremony to make them feel more included, that was really cool.
The dancing was amazing.  Our DJ, DJ Alex, found just the right blend of Pop, EDM, and Latin jams.  The entire guest list was up dancing from the very first song until the end.
Overall, we felt was wedding was a complete success, Bonnie and her staff did an amazing job.  I got compliments from many guest stating how fun it was, what an amazing DJ, how pretty the tables all looked. It turned out better than I expected, thanks Bonnie!” says Adriana.

Final Thoughts…

“We were concerned about the weather. The weekend before, there was supposed to be a rain storm but it cleared. The day before, the weather was not good.  It was very cloudy, no sun, super chilly and a bit cold.  I was really worried that Saturday was going to be the same.

The weather on the day of the wedding was perfect, 79 degrees, lots of sun and a light breeze at night. When we booked the wedding for the end of June, we thought it was going to be in the 90s and pretty hot (we were concerned about that too), it never felt hot at all, it was just right,” says Adriana.
