An elegant wedding cake awaits the traditional cake cutting at this wedding celebration at the Lodge at Torrey Pines. 

Every so often I’m lucky enough to DJ a wedding that looks straight out of a magazine (literally, some weddings I’ve worked have been featured in magazines). These weddings tend to be featured because of the over-the-top decorations and attention to details. Natasha and Christo’s wedding celebration on September 30, 2016 at the Lodge at Torrey Pines was one of those weddings.

It became quite apparent how amazing this weddings was as the elements of the decor I was sharing on social media were met with comments such as “wow” and “gorgeous” and event “please post more pictures, I’m obsessed!!!”

The night started with outdoor dining, set-up just a chip shot away from Torrey Pines’ iconic 18th green. Following dinner, the guests moved inside the Lodge for an evening of dancing. Natasha and Christo’s Brazilian and Greek cultures collided for one big dance party that was non-stop for three hours.
