Fabulous Hyatt HB wedding

Keith and Heather were extremely busy.  They had reached out to me a few times about booking me but it just never happened, until one day about 6 weeks before they said, Lisa we need to get this going, so we did.

They were a Custom/Full Service couple which means they get to choose how much or little they want to do/be involved in and i handle everything they don’t.  So very few options or no options to make it easier/quicker.  The first thing we do is a budget where i get a really good feel for their style/vision and most of all budget, this gives me direction for who the vendor team should be.  Heather’s favourite colors are red/white/black, do ya think I nailed that with the end design/look?  lol.  I brought Square Root on to do the florals as I knew they would execute the vision perfectly and of course they did, TMMPRO did the black dancefloors, the walkway at the ceremony and my fave round one in the ballroom, both with their custom decal on them, lighting, B&G sofa, draping/chiavaris  & chargers.  Luxe linens for the lines & napkins. Design Visage for hair/makeup, Peter/Vive Entertainment for all the music, Viralbooth OC for the surprise Photobooth after dinner in the foyer, Frank Salas for the fabulous pics, and Sweet Traders for the fabulous cake, and of course to our friends at Hyatt Hb, can’t do anything without all of you!! xoxox

Now I was in New Zealand for my nieces wedding on this date, so Kim orchestrated/oversaw everything on the day and did an excellent job (we were in communication the whole time via text and pics, and it’s always cool when the vendors text me too to get my aok on what they are doing, love them), so I missed seeing Heather’s face when she saw the Vista Ballroom for the first time, but from Kim and the vendors and from both Heather and Keith telling me, Heather was blown away.  I don’t think she could visualize it really plus she was too busy to really think about it, so I was really happy to hear it was even better than she could have imagined.

 

But the wedding wasn’t the end of our time together, while I was still in New Zealand Keith calls me and says, ok, now lets get the honeymoon done (they couldn’t think about that prior to the wedding due to their jobs) and so I got to send them down to Jamaica where they stayed in an overwater bungalow with a butler and had a wonderful honeymoon, they are supposed to be going back for their 1st year anniversary but coronavirus may be putting a delay to that unfortunately, but i will get them back there, and by the way, they now won’t vacation without the butler service, lol!!

Till next time

Hyatt HB Vista Ballroom wedding

What a wonderful relationship Lucrezia and her mom have, well that is probably because Lucrezia is so lovely, and she married lovely Hugo, so it was all just calm and lovely.  How lucky am I to have such lovely client’s.  The Vista Ballroom is the one we have done the most weddings in from the day the hotel opened, and what i love is that not two weddings have been the same, thanks to my couple’s varied styles/budgets/visions and the vendor teams we bring on board.  Don’t you love the backdrop to their sweet heart table?  Her mom was the one that came up with that ultimately and we all loved it.

Lighthouse Lawn ceremony, which normally does not go with Vista Ballroom but it worked out for them and we set it sunset facing.

Of course we had my fave round dancefloor and their custom decal was fabulous, all by TMMPRO along with the draping/3 walls, lighting/chargers/chiavaris. Plug Video was in the house, and Brent Edwards officiated/great job as always.  Napkins by Luxe Linens, Florals by Elegant by Design/Karla and team, and thanks for the photos Mr Frank Salas, always a pleasure working with him, so calm and easy and get things done & gets the shot!!  And to our friends at Hyatt HB, thanks for helping us bring wedding dreams to fruition.

Till next time

Hyatt HB Huntington Ballroom

Really enjoyed Betty and Adam.  They booked us to handle the reception portion at the hotel only, they did not need us earlier in the day or at the church.  They were our first wedding to do the sparkler cans in the ballroom at Hyatt HB and boy we went through the ringer for that.  My fave moment of the night was when they were on their stage after the grand entrance and the sparklers went off and all the guests were dancing/clapping infront of the B&G and Adam looked at me and gave the thumbs up!

Their grand entrance was lead in by some traditional drummers and all the guests created a tunnel from the door to the dancefloor for them (this is something they all knew to do and do at every wedding) and their culture line dances, it was amazing to watch the majority of the 300 guests line dancing, very calming and peaceful!! of course they had a band and dj and inbetween that was the normal parttttyyyyyyy going on, lol.  Floral was by The Finishing Touch/Brandi & Doug, nice job as always, cake by Sweet Traders-don’t you love the cake topper (we saw quite a few custom ones in 2019) and the dancefloor/decal, stage cover, special lighting/sparklers, chargers/chiavaris were by my team of guys from TMMPRO.  Of course a big shoutout to our pals at Hyatt HB, been doing weddings there since the day the hotel opened, 17 years i believe, wowser!! xoxo

Till next time

Hyatt HB intimate Vista Ballroom wedding

Had the honor of helping Dean and Michael with their wedding celebration .  They were just a pleasure (as all my guys have been) to work with.  It was an intimate group of 37, they were originally in Sandpiper but Vista Ballroom was available and the hotel offered it to them, they were a bit hesitant but I knew we could make it look good and no one ever complains about too much space, right!!

We put the dancefloor+decal at a diamond shape with sheart table at one point/cake at the opposite point and that gave us 4 sides for each of the guest tables to be beside, so everyone was around the dancefloor , TMMPRO provided the dancefloor/decal/lighting & chargers. Duane Peck was the photographer, I think the bottom pic is his the rest are off my iPhone i believe, Luxe Linens provided linens/napkins, and Sweet Traders did the awesome cake you see there.  Touch of Lavender florist and DJ Diamond they found on their own and they did a great job for our couple on the day.

80% of my couples do not live in CA, so working by email/phone to pull everything together is no problem for me, and that was a good thing with this couple as, one groom is in the military and was in Iraq for most of the planning months and we emailed back and forth and had a couple of conversations while he was there, and the other groom is  English and works for an airline and was in England/Europe most of the time.  Again, not a problem for me and it all turned out aok!

 

Of course we always owe a big hug to the team at Hyatt HB, teamwork makes the dream work.

Till next time

Hyatt HB Indian Wedding

    

This blog will give you a good feel for the special moments/elements of a wedding day celebration, thanks to Andrew Kwak Photo for the pics.  Hair and makeup was a collaboration between Drea and Lulu, Daisy the horse was there of course, and Sound Nation/Raj kept things going from the baraat with the dohl player through to the end of the evening dinner/dance.  Thanks to our friends at Hyatt HB as always too xoxo

     

the pics above are when the bride and groom leave after the ceremony (normally done around 11am so it is done by noon) and luncheon to follow, for the grooms family home.  The vehicle they leave in varies, i have had everything from luxury car as above to helicopter to yachts!!  It’s a really emotional time for the bride and her parents and family because life as they knew it with her at home/in the family will now be different/change.  The good news is, on this day, they make it back in time to get ready for the dinner/dance celebration, yayyyyy

Hyatt HB Huntington Ballroom wedding

Our bride had dreamed of her wedding for a long time, so anything that could be added to make it perfect, she did.  She added a chandelier to the ceiling in Huntington Ballroom, her ceremony floral circle got moved to behind the cake, we draped and at the ceremony she had lovely words of love on boards going down the aisle, doves/White Flite were released at the end of the ceremony, a string trio played ceremony music, mariachis played at cocktails, and a band and dj were in the ballroom, Katella Bakery did an awesome job with her cake vision.  The ceremony was at CA Courtyard, cocktails were Huntington Ballroom balcony & foyer, and then into the ballroom.  Face it Sugar did hair&makeup.  Kudos to The Finishing Touch/Brandi & Doug, a lot of work but it all came together and looked beautiful.  And of course to our friends at the Hyatt HB, kudos xox

Hyatt HB – Huntington Ballroom

Another wedding where I pulled everything together and then Nicole oversaw/orchestrated the event on the day, can you see she has done a ton at Hyatt HB so is very familiar with the property and the staff, so you are in great hands with her!

Ceremony was on Lighthouse Courtyard lawn angled to the sunset, cocktails on Huntington Ballroom balcony and then into Huntington Ballroom

thanks to Lin & Jirsa for the photos, Design Visage did hair&makeup, Invisible Touch/Trevor provided all the music, and the team from Hyatt HB as always, a pleasure to work with before and during a wedding event xoxox

Hyatt HB – Huntington Ballroom wedding

 

Jackie and Jimmy got married in a church and we were only needed to handle the reception at the hotel, so I pulled everything together with them and on the day Darla oversaw/orchestrated everything as the B&G wished for.  They had a ukulele player during cocktails which was fun and different, then dj in the ballroom.

Thanks to Lin & Jirsa for the pics, TMMPRO for the dancefloor, BEL for the draping & chandelier, and of course to our friends at Hyatt HB, teamwork makes the dream work xoxo

Hyatt Huntington Beach wedding

Sometimes with our couple’s doing church ceremonies we are at the church also and sometimes our role is only at the hotel, as was the case with Urmi’s wedding.  She worked with me on the planning/pulling everything together and then on the day, Nicole was there and overseeing/orchestrating and because it was a big wedding, both Darla and Cece were there assisting her.

We had a mixture of round and rectangle tables and placed the dancefloor as a diamond which is a cool way to work with as many as rectangles to make all feel special close to dancefloor and not block the dancefloor off when it is square.  Thanks to Lin & Jirsa for the pics, Luxury Lifestyle Studios/video, Design Visage for hair/makeup, we had a lovely violinist for cocktails and a caricature artist too both of which are great when you have a longer cocktail time.  Thanks as always to the team at Hyatt HB, teamwork makes the dreamwork for sure xoxoxxo

Hyatt HB ocean/sea theme wedding

We work with all budgets and all levels of service ranging from Day of/which starts one month prior to full service, as i think you can tell from the blogs and Instagram posts.  I find it more interesting because everyone is different, rather than only dealing with the 1% and pretty much using the same vendors to create pretty much the same look/feel for each wedding with different colors and maybe an element or two to try to make it feel/look custom to that couple.  With our couples it’s a huge range, some are paying for everything themselves and they are a ‘normal’ working couple that just want their wedding at a nice hotel, for others they are lawyers/doctors/professionals that earn where they can have a wedding at a nice hotel but also have no strain financially on adding rentals/elements to make their wedding unique/different, and for some parent’s are paying so couple may or may not have much input and maybe a lot of items/decisions are compromises rather than the end result/style the couple may have had of they were paying.   So in saying that my vendor pool to offer to fit each couples style/budget/vision/priorities,  is huge and has to be, so with my couple’s weddings most of the time the team is different.

Todays blog is one of the couples that were paying for the wedding themselves, wanted a nice hotel, and were happy to make compromises to make that happen, ie, they had their wedding on a Friday morning and it was done by 4pm.  By doing it during the work day, their guest count was where they wanted it (non family/good friends generally won’t/can’t take a day off work) and they didn’t need to add lighting/a lot of décor to make the event look fab at night.  Shannon wanted sea/ocean feel, so you can see at the ceremony and in the ballroom what was done to make that happen and in the ballroom it was very effective and at very little cost.

Thanks to Joe Latter for the photos above, way better than my iPhone ones, lol, Jeff/Moondance Mobile Music for all the music/mceeing and as always a fab job, Karen’s Flowers (not on insta or website), Sweet Traders for the cake that turned out perfectly, and to our friends at Hyatt HB, as always, we make the dreams come true/guest’s experience a great event, and no matter what they spend, make them feel like the 1%.

Till next time
