Fans of WENN.com were asked which singer they’d most want to serenade them during their first dance at their wedding. Alicia Keys won the title of favorite Wedding Singer.

How amazing would it be to have Alicia in the house singing your song on your big day? Maybe you don’t have the budget to snag a superstar to entertain your guests. But you might surprise them with the next best thing.

Hiring a celebrity impersonator is a unique and fun way to have your favorite entertainer make a big impact on the most important day of your life.

The great thing about San Diego is the number and variety of wedding venues that abound! There really is something for everyone; from the coveted beach wedding to beautiful parks, sophisticated hotel ballrooms, historic properties, wineries– the options seem unlimited.

Especially San Diego’s beautiful downtown–from Little Italy to the Gaslamp District– offers some very cool options for the bride & groom who want something a little edgier and different.

Last night was such a treat to hear the band East Bay Soul play at Anthology down in Little Italy. The band tore the joint up with a smoking horn section, amazing percussion, and one of the most incredible lead vocalists I’ve heard.  Great food and service, too!

Anthology is a perfect blend of sophistication and ease and is a great spot for your wedding reception or rehearsal dinner.

Downtown offers the brand-new Fluxx nightclub – in the former Aubergine space. They did an amazing job of transforming the club- lots of space and still offers an intimate feel ‘in the round.’  Fluxx is available for private events, wedding reception or an additional party space for those extended weekend events.

My recent visit to Borrego Ranch Resort brought not only incredible pampering and relaxation, but enthusiasm and excitement for a property that yields a bounty of options for a unique and magical wedding celebration.

After a 2-hour drive from San Diego through beautiful countryside, winding roads, and a few small towns, I arrived at Borrego Ranch Resort & Spa and was greeted at reception as if I were family.

Borrego Ranch Resort provides such a warm environment that you almost feel like you are a special guest in someone’s home. The staff is professional and laid-back; addressing your every need with the familiar authority of a gracious hostess. During dinner on the patio there was a slight chill but not enough to warrant lighting up a heater, which can sometimes be obtrusive. Instead the restaurant manager retrieved a pashmina and draped it around my shoulders. Nice touch.

And with so many activities available – rock climbing, golf, spa, croquet, guest speakers, writing and cooking classes, movie nights – even though I was out in the middle of the desert I never felt bored; simply open to possibilities. The environment caters to living in the moment.

A unique feature of BRR is their own rock labyrinth on the property. A rock labyrinth creates a well-defined path that leads to the center and back again. The center represents illumination, a place where people find insights to their problems and concerns. Sort of a walking meditation.

How do you approach a labyrinth in the desert? With a clear intention and an open heart. This is also the best approach to planning your wedding at a paradise getaway.

Such an intimate property is a natural for a wedding weekend. The best option is a resort buyout; easily achieved with a standard size wedding. Imagine full run of the resort with your friends and family!

And then the possibilities for cocktail hours, intimate gatherings, fun activities and of course your ceremony and celebration open up to take advantage of the beautiful resort and landscaping.

I prefer to call it a wedding ‘getaway’ rather than a ‘destination’ wedding, which can sometimes feel loaded with quite a bit more logistics. But with careful planning and experts at hand, it will feel as easy breezy as any weekend retreat.
