Home was at the heart of Briana and Calum Hayes’ summer wedding at Scripps Seaside Forum in San Diego. Inspired by the couple’s wish to embrace and thank all the people in their lives who had played a role in their relationship, Heather Balliet of Amorology in San Marcos landed on the concept of home. “They wanted to honor their guests by making their wedding feel homey,” explains Heather. “Comfortable, loving, inviting and intimate.” For their ceremony, this wood-framed house, built by Back Up Backdrops served as a romantic symbol of the couple’s union and the home they created by vowing “I do.” Just a few of the details that made this homey concept come alive were seen in their “Love Thy Neighbor” escort card display, dollhouse furniture turned place cards, and table numbers that were the addresses of homes throughout their lives.

The “Love Thy Neighbor” wall pays homage to the couple’s love for their Christianity and features glass house terrariums calligraphed by Prim and Pixie filled with blooms by florist The Dainty Lion.
Homey touches like this soothing seaside lounge by Folklore Rentals created cozy places for guests to relax, connect and enjoy the views.
FêteFone, an audio guest book, allows guests to record a message for the couple; Briana and Calum’s videographer, Story by Image, added the heartfelt messages to their wedding video.
Drink names played to the home theme, including Mi Casa es Mule Casa and a Call Me Old-Fashioned
Amorology gathered dollhouse furniture such as chairs, armoires, dressers, tables and end tables, which Prim and Pixie calligraphed with the guests’ names.
