Plaza Room-intimate special celebration

I am so lucky, I have a couple of weddings a year in the Plaza Room at the Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel, where the guest count is under 35 guests and we get to play with the room layout.

When I can have everyone at one table,  it’s fabulous.  The guests love it and feel special, and the staff and I just want to sit down and join them because the energy and buzz is so high.

With a smaller group your budget can be used in a variety of ways that a larger group may not be able to stretch to.  we also had two seating areas of white furniture  in the room as well as my favorite photo booth- the epod.  All adding to the experience of the guests.  If you are able to be flexible with nights of the week to do your event (and if everyone is coming in from elsewhere you tend to be able to be or it is a small local group) then your F&B minimums you need to spend on the banquet space is less than a premium night, so all around your budget and experience for all goes further.

Here are some pics taken by Allison Cotton from  Bleu Cotton Photography (www.bleucotton.com).  So lovely she is and she really captured this couple and their hopes/vision for their celebration.  The shot thru the door from the balcony looking into the room is one I have seen her do on many occasions and I call that her icon shot.

I will miss my Heather and Stefan, we worked a year on this wedding and it even took a turn of direction a couple of months before the big day, all no panic, and on the day, they definately had a fun celebration going, and the change of direction was the totally right thing to do.

Till next time
