UC SAN DIEGO HEART OF SAN DIEGO GALA 2017
Park Hyatt Aviara | San Diego, CA-- The 20th Annual Heart of San Diego Gala was truly a Mid Summer Night's Dream. Inspired by all things enchanted, the evening was swept with elegant decor, deep red roses, and amber candlelight. Ivory, charcoal, and merlot vintage furnishings filled the cocktail hour space. Adding to these rich-hued vignettes were beautiful Carrara Marble coffee tables, metal and dark wood specialty tables, and a soft-to-the-touch glittery linen for the low cocktail tables. The wooden bar tops were set with custom copper arches that were adorned with olive branches and hanging long stem red roses. It was a perfect pairing of decadence and a Parisian night market.
As cocktail hour came to an end, guests flowed through the foyer and entered into an even more magical space. The ballroom was mixed with both round and dark wood kings tables, with three different floral designs throughout the room. Taupe and silver shimmery linens were paired with olive tree-inspired centerpieces, which were enhanced with sparkling fairy lights. The height of the trees were balanced with a combination of low-carved wood vases and floral runners that were abundant with blooms. The beauty did not stop there. As one looked toward the stage, twinkling cafe lights swooped over the mahogany dance floor with a star-filled backdrop, that stood 18' high behind the stage. The intention was to create a platform for giving that embodied the outdoors while maintaining elegance and grandeur. Simply put, the design was perfection.
