Harborside Grand Ballroom ~ Oscar and Jessica

Seaside Celebration…

Harborside Grand Ballroom in Balboa Village was the perfect setting for this seaside celebration.  Jessica and Oscar chose bright colors and carnival decor for their wedding while incorporating their hometowns of the New Jersey boardwalk and the California coastline.  After the ceremony at St. Mary’s in Huntington Beach, the entire bridal party traveled by trolley to Balboa Village for a photo shoot and the reception.  Guests enjoyed delicious appetizers and cotton candy martinis during cocktail hour.  Table centerpieces included pinwheels and carnival tickets, with candy apples and cootie catchers at each place setting.  Cotton candy and snow cones were made for guests throughout the evening, and a lively photo booth provided entertainment all night long.  In lieu of a speech, the maid of honor performed a rap about the couple which had all the guests laughing and cheering.  For their “cake cutting” the bride and groom pulled off pieces of a freshly spun cotton candy cake and fed it to each other. Guests partied the night away to the sounds of Undercover Live Entertainment while enjoying the twinkling lights over Newport Harbor.
