Wedding Series 2: Part II – More Than a Wedding

Dean and Drue’s Wedding

Start Planning Today

“The two of us have a passion for event planning. We had some early concepts that as we investigated options, a more clear vision for the event developed.” —Drue

Dean and Drue’s wedding afforded them the opportunity to reconnect and make memories with their friends and family. As the wedding was not only a celebration of their own relationship, they also honored the people closest to them by creating a whole itinerary of events. “For the overwhelming majority of the 175 in attendance, we realized it meant airfare, hotel and rental cars,” says Drue. “Many had never been to California, let alone San Diego. With all this in mind, we decided to provide several days of events that would showcase San Diego, enable families to combine it with a SoCal vacation and to provide a memorable experience with its own uniqueness.”

In the Moment

If what Oscar Wilde once said is true, “Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when flowers are dead”, Drue and Dean can expect to see a garden brimming with flowers.

Dance, Dance, Dance

The couple who dances together stays together.

Dean and Drue’s wedding ended on a very musical note. Punctuated with gorgeous flowers, the room was electric with people on the dance floor and the excitement from the wedding. Dean and Drue’s music together will surely last and bring happiness to those around them.
