Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach wedding

Joanna wanted a coastal feel and Karla at EBD Floral caught her vision perfectly!


Vista Ballroom can fit up to 180 people but its always fun when we have a smaller group, this wedding was 60 people, and we can play with rectangle and round tables and spread out.  No one ever complains about too much space!!

Our photographer was Frank Salas, but think these were my iphone pics!! Rentals by TMMPRO and napkins by Luxe Linen. Peter/Vive Ent kept the party going until the very end. Design Visage prettied everyone up as always.  Thanks to everyone at Hyatt HB who from the day the hotel opened have partnered with us to ensure everything goes smoothly.

Ritz-Carlton Laguna wedding

Normally the Bluff Lawn and Pavilion are for larger weddings, but this couple booked short term and both spaces were available and they got to use them.


Can you see the Doves?  A lot of my couples do the dove release at the end of the ceremony and the guests love it.  White Flite are the best and the birds live up the road from the Ritz and fly right home!!

A fun late night snack!!  Photos/Frank Salas, Video/Joel Austell, Hair/makeup-Design Visage, Floral-EBD floral, dj/Justo and as always, thanks to the ladies and gentlemen of the Ritz-Carlton Laguna for helping us make Monica’s wedding dream lovely and smooth

Intimate Ritz-Carlton Laguna wedding

A little boho but oh so elegant.  Monarch Bay Sunset Terrace for the ceremony and the Plaza Room and Balcony for the dinner/dance.  Sarah Mack was our photographer, my 1st wedding with her and you will be seeing more coming up with her, but think this pics were from my phone, can’t be sure.  TMMPRO for the rentals along with Luxe Linens, and Design Visage prettied everyone up as always.  Always thanks to the ladies and gentlemen at the Ritz-Carlton Laguna for being perfect teammates.

Oh no!!!!


As always, once the season gets well underway my blogging seems to go to the bottom of the pile!!  Just realized I am way behind from last year, working to have 2017 all caught up by end of April and some of 2018s already too, so keep watching.

But in the meantime, if you want to see my weddings in real time and what I am up to in my wedding world on a nearly daily basis, go to my instagram lisasimpsonweddings

Island Hotel – Newport Beach

I was at the Island Hotel when this bride and groom and her parents were walking around looking at it as a potential for her wedding reception, and they liked what they saw me doing for that wedding and I got booked for Maria’s. Their ceremony was at a church that does not have church ladies and I have done a few there now, so I was over there getting everyone up the aisle too.

From our awesome placecard table floral to the church and the ballroom, EBD Floral did a beautiful job again as always.

Linens and napkins came from Luxe.  We even had caricature artists after dinner which were very popular.

Thanks to Jacqueline Kay for some of the photos above and some are mine, the bad ones, lol.  And as always, to the Island Hotel team, thank you for being awesome.

Till next time

A May wedding for May

What a joy/pleasure May was to work with on planning her wedding.  I am so lucky I really do have lovely brides, grooms, couples.

The Pavilion ballroom at the Ritz-Carlton Laguna offers such a beautiful backdrop during cocktails and later throughout the evening.  These 2 pics I took were at sunset time, another beautiful  S CA sunset.

4snapz photobooth knew she liked Disney and brought them these ears to wear/keep, that was so lovely.  My vendors really do put 300% into what they do as well as love.  My 2nd red dancefloor in 2 months, looked awesome when May had her red dress on.  Did you also notice the red rose petals in the ice luge??

We pulled together a really lovely vendor team for this lovely couple – Alvarron Ent/dj-Al, Tony Florez photog (some of his and some of mine above), The Emotion Picture Studio/video-Marc, Joyce Luck for making the girls look  lovely, Carving Ice for the luge, TMMPRO for the red dancefoor/chiavaris/lighting, Flowers Etc/Debby for being so easy/nice to work with and Lake Forest Limos for getting everyone to the church and back from the church, and of course to our family at the Ritz-Carlton Laguna. xoxoxo

till next time

Vendors came together for this one

There was a special backstory to this wedding, they booked short term (which has turned into a thing this year, with my short term couples booking a hotel from 5 days prior to 4 weeks prior and off we go, I have always had 6-8 week out couples and longer of course, but this is the year of very short term, and I love the challenge, and as fate has it, my couples are ending up with awesome vendors who were also available, so I call that fate and we were waiting for you but you didn’t know it) and between the hotel, me and then the vendors who came on board we all went over and above, and Brenda was such a sweet bride we wanted her to have the wedding of her dreams and she did!

It was a morning ceremony and lunch reception with no dancing, so we did a different setup in the beautiful Pavilion ballroom with the sweetheart table at the end of the room


Thanks to the awesome vendor team on this one, Frank Salas/Photographer, Flowers by Cina, Design Visage, Peter/Vive Ent for all the music, and Michelle at the Ritz-Carlton Laguna for making it work for this lovely couple and wonderful mother of the groom.

It really was all our pleasure to make Brenda’s dream come true, her tears only reinforced why we do what we do.

Till next time

Beautiful wedding for a sweet bride

What a joy Ina was to work with, Frank Salas (thanks for the photos), Flowers By Cina and I kept saying how lucky we were to each other.

I always use TMMPRO for the dancefloor/chairs/lighting but this time we even had Jack himself as the dj, love it.
