Well as my bride from this May wedding last year and I were just discussing (we dm all the time still), our biggest problem was the rain which had us move their ceremony indoors, but if it was this year the wedding would not have happened in May probably.   We had a great time pulling this wedding together, many meetings at their home in Santa Monica as they travel a lot and catching them with time was a bit tricky, most of their guests flew in and spent 4-5 nights at the resort, so we also orchestrated an event the night prior at Club 19.

So as i mention, we had planned an outdoor ceremony on the Grand Lawn with the chuppa that had been created by Square Root from an inspiration picture our bride had been carrying around for quite some time with her.  Now we got to make it happen.  Thanks to Square Root for exceeding her expectations with the whole event, as always!!


Sometimes things work out and with the ceremony being indoors the hotel team and i decided to use their dining table chairs to really fancy up the ceremony and then their crew moved the chairs to the dining tables after the ceremony, flawless.


The guests enjoyed hors d’oevures and cocktails in the ballroom foyer, all were nice and warm for both ceremony and cocktails due to us moving it in, and i will add, it had been raining on and off but at the time the ceremony started in the ballroom it poured down.


We had my fave round dancefloor and their custom decal (thanks TMMPRO) that matched their logo on all their papergoods, along with 2 curved sofas from Hire Elegance from San Diego that nestled around the dancefloor perfectly .  We had a mix of rectangle mirror/gold tables and round tables.  The sweetheart table was a rectangle for 4, the groom’s sons sat with them, well for a bit anyway, lol.


We had a great back corner setup for when the guests entered the ballroom, but during dinner while they were all busy enjoying the awesome meal prepared by the chef’s at MBR we had a Photobooth operator come in and setup their camera in front of it for after dinner.

The only thing we had to give up due to the weather was a dove release that was planned for the end of the ceremony, but the guest’s were none the wiser!!  Thanks to Joe Latter for the pics and always being so easy/great to work with xoxo

till next time
