Shannon + Phil :: Green Acre

Shannon and Phil were a truly special couple ever since our first meeting! We met at Brian Malarkey's Green Acre Restaurant and gardens in La Jolla (the eventual location of their wedding) and I just knew  that walking the property together and chatting over a beer that these two were not only the sweetest couple but I was so attracted to how unbelievably caring they are, especially to our planet. They hired us for full service planning since their engagement and there is nothing that I didn't love about creating their coastal garden celebration this past March!

Choosing Green Acre for their wedding venue was the first of many sustainable and environmentally conscious wedding planning decisions. Phil is a doctor within UCSD's oceanography program, not to mention an avid water sports fan so his connection and love for the ocean was a major factor in their wedding planning. Shannon and Phil's first date (Scripps Pier + live concert + yummy food) was another theme translated to their wedding day (I.E. their wedding included coastal accents, a live 8-piece band, and outdoor beer garden vibes at Green Acre just to name a few). Speaking of Green Acre, this venue has it all; a stunning ceremony in the middle of an herb garden supplying the restaurant with organic foods, modern yet rustic architectural design, and deliciously sustainable cuisine. Did I mention that Shannon and Phil's wedding was also on St. Patrick's Day AND that they both come from large fun-loving Irish families? Aside from St. Patty's day themed cocktails, Irish Coffee recipes/mug favors at each place setting, and Irish Soda Bread at dinner (the chef made Phil's grandmother's own recipe), the band kept the atmosphere lively and exciting yet welcoming and homey all at the same time making this truly a St. Patrick's Day to remember! Cheers to Mr. and Mrs. Bresnahan!
