A Beach Wedding
Scripps Seaside Forum is close enough to the beach to enjoy the breeze but far enough away to not get sand on your nice shoes. It sits atop the cliffs of La Jolla Shores and happens to be the venue that I got married at. When I get a lead for this venue I make sure to give all the tips and tricks I know about the Forum. I relive my wonderful wedding every time I work there.
Dougie and Kelsie were referred to me from my buddy Inez with Bashful Events who does events and I was also her wedding DJ when she married my buddy Keith. The wedding planner, Melissa Barrad with I Do…Weddings and Events, is someone I have worked with for years and every time I get to work with her, it is a pleasure. She is very down to earth, easy to talk to and gives her vendors the room to do their job. She can also run a program to perfection without adding any additional and unnecessary stress.
Up Lights at Scripps Seaside Forum
I love providing the lighting at Scripps Seaside Forum because there is so much you can do. Usually there is pipe and drape from the floor to the ceiling at the back of the venue. This is a perfect area for up lighting which accents the wedding colors to perfection. When you are in the venue looking west to the ocean, there are two Mexican Palm trees that shoot up about 20 feet. I always suggest up lighting for a cool effect. I also recommend up lighting the other palm trees in the same area. There are so many more tips and tricks with lighting at this venue but I’ll save those for my clients.
