From Restaurant to Romance

Scott and Jessica

Scott and Jessica have been together for about 2.5 years. They met while working at a restaurant together. Through working at the restaurant they became best friends and have grown together, even adopting their fur baby, Snickers. As the saying goes, “the fastest way to someone’s heart is through their stomach”, being a chef, that’s just what Scott did. It all started with a heart shaped pizza.

The night they got engaged, Scott had arranged for a limo to pick them up. As the limo arrived Scott anxiously dropped to one knee and asked the question of all questions, “Will you marry me”? An excited Jessica said, “Yes!”. When they got into the limo there were roses waiting and they popped the champagne bottle while on their way to a nice dinner in La Jolla. Their night didn’t end there though, after dinner they went to a Padres Game and went to a hidden bar where they had another mini dinner.

“We chose Twin Oaks because it is a beautiful venue. The availability for all the different rooms was amazing and gave us so many options. Twin Oaks seems very inclusive with the wedding packages. The ceremony area is beautiful and the golf course will be amazing for pictures. It was everything we wanted, greenery, fountains, a lake, the fireplace patio is beautiful, and there is also an indoor location for the reception.” – Jessyca Henman

Holy Maca-Ring! Congratulations to the soon to be Mr. & Mrs. Jarquin

Ortega Jarquin WeddingHector and I have been together for a little over 3.5 years. He proposed the day before our 3rd year anniversary! The proposal took me by surprise, which made it so much more memorable. We went to Carlsbad beach during sunset time and Hector surprised me with a wheel of macaroons (they are my favorite cookies, I’m obsessed.) When he opened the box the ring was in the middle!!! I was speechless. I was shocked I don’t remember him asking “will you marry me?” and I’m constantly asking for a “do over.”macaroon wheel

Hector and I met through a mutual friend, the funny thing is that we went to the same high school but we never crossed paths. He graduated from UCR and I graduated from UCSB. At times we can be very opposite in certain aspects, but we balance each other out. We really enjoy hiking with our dogs on the weekends, and exploring San Diego. We love all of the Marvel super hero movies, and I’ve gotten Hector to enjoy scary movies, some of my favorites include, The Conjuring, Annabelle, and The Orphanage.

“When we started looking at venues, we researched online through Google and The Knot. When we found your website we really liked the pictures. We made an appointment to tour the facility with Jill, and she was a great help! The venue has a beautiful view, and we fell in love with the outdoor space! We really liked the packages for food and drinks! It is a gorgeous space and we don’t feel like we are breaking the bank. The open house sealed the deal for us because it was nice to see it with decorations, and all the food. We both could see our wedding taking place there, and our parents loved it too!” – Rebeca Ortega

Congratulations, we can’t wait to bring your big day to life!

Party Lights and Party People


Turn the lights down low and let’s dance!

While many people have started to shy away from strobe lights, and rightfully so! Disco lights are still very much a part of the scene. DJ’s, are always up to date on the latest lighting, music trends and have many idea’s that ensure you will get your groove on. Some things you can plan to ask a potential DJ is if they offer uplighting, gobo’s, and market lighting, as discussed in Lights- Part 1. If available, your DJ can change the colors, add a custom monogram for “let’s dance” and rotate the through different colors to really get the energy going. Ask to see past events the DJ has hosted, in this day of YouTube and technology there is no reason you shouldn’t be able to find a reputable DJ’s past hosted events.

Want to take your dancing to the next level? Dancing queens are turning to light-up dance floors. What more can you think of!?
