Rachelle's Surprise Birthday Brunch :: La Valencia Hotel

We love surprises... we love brunch even more! When NGE's longtime friend, Raquel, approached us to host a surprise birthday brunch for her sister, Rachelle, it was right up our alley! We decided on La Valencia Hotel in the heart of La Jolla for it's relaxed vibe, ocean views, and private garden . Raquel was so trusting with our team and had only a few specifications... wine tasting, intimate plated lunch, live music, and a whole lot of pretty! It allowed us to pull together some of our favorite vendors (Blooms by Breesa Lee, Design by Laney, and Acqua Photo) and get creative, colorful, and tropical for a fun birthday celebration. I mean, how cute are those pineapples and kumquats?!
