Fashion Island Hotel wedding

This was another lovely wedding where the mother of the groom initiated our working together and got things going, she was just lovely and the couple were very comfortable with any input she had along the way.  At the end of the event when she was leaving the ballroom after everyone had gone we had a great chat and she said that she knew from the beginning I was going to make it all work out/allow them to enjoy the celebration. xo

Floral Design By Luis was someone they knew and he did a lovely job, Design Visage-hair&makeup, Jordan Music provided all the music/in 2019 we worked with them quite  few times/more than usual, Luxe Linens for linens/napkins in the ballroom, TMMPRO for my fave round dancefloor, Viralbooth OC for the surprise Photobooth in the foyer after dinner for the guests, Mood Photo for the pics above, and our partners at Fashion island Hotel for always being wonderful to work with, we love being there xoxox

till next time

Hyatt HB – Huntington Ballroom Wedding

While I was doing a wedding at Fashion Island Hotel, Kim was overseeing Chris and Michelle’s reception with Brittany’s assistance.  We had all the details down and we had had a lovely final meeting at the hotel over lunch, they were very cool/calm and easy.  So calm and easy, they did a first look at the hotel, then drove themselves to the church and drove themselves back to the hotel!!

Guests started at the Lighthouse Lawn where games were setup but if they preferred they could go to the Huntington Ballroom Balcony and enjoy, then when it was time everyone was escorted into the Huntington Ballroom.

 

It was a very pretty setup courtesy of The Flower Boutique, and we got to work with the Ben Mallare Band, 2 times in the same month! Thanks to Modern Romance Photography for getting me the pics, and as always thanks to our friends at Hyatt HB xoxox

till next time

Hyatt HB-Fountain Room Wedding

Well this was a fun, intimate, loving wedding with a complete Hawaiian theme/feel to where the groom and guests were in tropical shirts and comfortable and I wish I had of got the memo, lol!!

Thanks to the B&G for getting me some pics, as all mine had the blue uplights on and you couldn’t see the pretty tropical colors on the tables, blue was the base theme color you may notice. Florals by Oceanic Flowers, Alan Katz/Great Officiants officiated and always keeps in theme/adds elements to each couple’s ceremony to make it personal, Greg Tama for the awesome ukulele music for ceremony & cocktails, and Juan/Invisible Touch, he kept that dancefloor going for 2 hours past the his officiant end time, it was crazy how long this small group danced for!! And to our friends at Hyatt HB, as always, true team players from the catering office to all those working the floor, most of who I have worked with for 17 years xoxoxo

Till next time

Casa Del Mar Santa Monica wedding

Maura and Cole got married at a church not far from the hotel and as most guests were staying at the hotel or going to be valeting there at some point, we had shuttles going to/from the church which made it easy for all.

I just love this ballroom, it has windows and lots of beautiful chandeliers (that have a whole story to them) and the walls and carpet colors are so light, it’s really pretty.

thanks to Anya Kernes for the pics, to TMMPRO-dancefloor/B&G sofa/lighting/chargers, Sebas Flowers, Pixter Photobooth, DJ Krieger for great cocktail and dinner/dancing music, they were a party crowd so it didn’t take a lot but he kept that dancefloor full, we did extend him, oh yeah, Fantasy Frostings for the cake, and the great team at Casa Del Mar, looking forward to our next one for sure xoxox

Till next time

Ritz Carlton Laguna-Terrace Salon wdg

Well it was many years in the making but I got to help Tara make her wedding and wedding dreams come true.  They had looked at and started the process before but things happened and the brakes were put on, then Tara came to see me and we got things going.  I knew Square Root Floral Designs were the perfect match for her and you can see by these pics by her photographer she brought down from Canada/Karolina Turek, she was fun, at one point i saw her lying on the dancefloor on her side taking a pic of who knows what, but that is why she is the photographer and I am not, lol!!  Square Root also handled the bridal party table/chargers/linens/napkins+mirrors&seating, yay

Ceremony was held on Monarch Bay Sunset Lawn and then cocktails were on the lawn next to it, then after sunset we escorted everyone up to Terrace Salon.

Love having Wendy/Orange County Harpist doing weddings with us, adds romance in my mind, and at the end of the ceremony the B&G both held a white dove/White Flite and released them, now that’s romantic too, right??!!

Thanks to TMMPRO for my beloved round white dancefloor+custom decal, B&G sofa, lighting/chivaris/cake table, Hoo Films/video, Design Visage-hair/makeup, and the bride had seen and loved the Trip Band so they provided cocktail/dinner/dancing music.  Thanks as always to the ladies and gentlemen at the Ritz-Carlton Laguna xoxox

Till next time

Montage Laguna Wedding

Mom of the groom got things going with this wedding even though she lived in another state and the couple lived in Los Angeles, they were busy busy.  We pulled together a wonderful vendor team and everything turned out fabulously.  In the picture above there was a mini sofreh next to the sweetheart table to pay homage to the bride’s heritage.

 

You may have noticed now that most couples at Montage Laguna are opting to use the side lawn for the ceremony, it gives a nice coastal with ocean backdrop and it puts the lawn a bit higher so you don’t get people walking the path behind in your pics.  We have then been using the center lawn for cocktails which i think is better views for them

Thanks to Joe Latter for the pics, Luxury Lifestyle Studio/Video, TMMPRO for the chiavaris/band stage cover/dancefloor+decal/lighting, EBD Floral for doing a fabulous job as always, Gracie Sprout for cere/cocktail string duo, and to Full Spectrum Band/Adam who brought energy as only he does to a celebration, and to Viral Booth OC for the surprise Photobooth after dinner.  And to Kelly/no longer there for being such a trooper/team mate as always, over the years we have done many many weddings together between the 3 hotels she was working at, I wonder if she will miss it and come back?? hmmmmmmm lol

Till next time
