There is nothing more perfect than a Springtime wedding, but this gorgeous wedding at Green Acre at Campus Pointe takes the cake! Not only was the bride and groom a wonder to work with, this venue lends itself to so many design opportunities.
The California eclectic design of this venue is the perfect option for engaged couples to rent out the entire venue, or certain spaces at a time. If you have ever dined at Green Acre during the week for lunch or happy hour, then you will know the food is on point, and so is it’s location.
Tucked behind UCSD off Campus Pointe Drive, Green Acre sits upon a hill with serene, idyllic views. These views capture rolling hills and a charming herb garden, which makes for the perfect outdoor ceremony. This wedding was set outside for the ceremony and cocktail hour, and the accordion doors opened up into the reception indoors.
The open floor plan of this space allowed for designated areas that flowed together. I created a formal lounge with the use of the amazing vintage inspired furniture that you can utilize from Green Acre. The use of their small conference room made for a perfect desserts table, and the main open space was the ideal location for the dance floor next to the buffet line and dining. The Bride and Groom had a special Thank You Poem created by Victory Graphix. Vinyl printed letters on Plexiglass was a sweet touch, and looked stunning with the blue lighting.
Let’s talk about these colors! Jewel tones make for a dreamy wedding, and the rosette linens in midnight blue complemented the deep fuchsia peonies. Succulents were prevalent at Green Acre, and the use of succulents and greenery in the decor was key to tying it all together.
The bohemian ceremony design could not have been done without the use of rentals from To Be Designed. The Moroccan lanterns, grass and vintage runners, and soft draped fabric over the rustic arch framed the beautiful rolling hills. The floral cluster donned with Spanish Moss tied it all together beautifully.
The floral design, bouquets, boutonnieres, and floral crown were the most fun to work on! Some of succulents came from the bride’s garden, and were blended in with vibrant fuchsia peonies. The greenery runners exuded rustic charm against a sophisticated navy and white table linen. The mixture of textures, wood, sea glass, florals, and candles created a modern yet romantic atmosphere.
If you get the chance to visit Green Acre at Campus Pointe, consider it for your next big event! I would gladly work with their staff again!
