When your love for pie is combined with wedding planning, you get the sweetest memories. Take it from Kristina and Marcel, you can never go wrong with pie. This fun Bay Area couple picked 3.14 as their wedding date (National Pi Day) and made it their own.
Kristina and Marcel chose the perfect weekend for family and friends to gather to celebrate—right before lockdown! With many traveling from out of the city, The Lafayette offered the perfect destination that is quintessentially San Diegan. The day started with the bride and groom getting ready in separate suites at the hotel, followed by photos in the front drive and the 1940's inspired vintage lobby. It was an overcast day, ideal for the photographer, and allowed them to have an intimate "first look" with a quiet pool as their backdrop.
From ceremony to final dance, the day was nothing short of whimsical and fun. A stunning floral arch by The Barn Florist sat in front of the hotel's moss wall. Guests picked up a pamaypay (handheld fan in Tagalog) as they found their seats in sofa sectionals, benches and caneback chairs. The couple said their I do's and left the aisle grooving to "I Can't Help Myself" by The Four Tops to the well-known verse "Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch". They had an epic entrance into the reception, followed by dinner wearing Supreme logo bibs (no spillage on the wedding gown), and never-ending money dance. Of course, the dance floor was never empty, thanks to DJ Eternal.
What's Pi Day with out the pie? Marcel's cousin baked delicious miniature pies in assorted flavors. Little hearts and pi symbols adorned the tops, which were a highlight for the night.
