Intimate Surf & Sand wedding

This was a wonderful intimate wedding celebration with one of the best views here in the OC, for 18 people.  Paige and her groom had a history with the Surf & Sand hotel but when she had been looking on her own for a venue, she didn’t know the questions to ask etc, so had found me and booked me to help her plan her wedding elsewhere.  When i was asking questions it always came back to Surf & Sand, so i asked her how flexible they were, would they do a Mon-Thursday, she had never thought about it, but why not!!  So i reached out to S&S and of course it all worked out and she got the wedding she had dreamed of.

After the ceremony while the guests had cocktails at the side of the ceremony area and the B&G/family were down on the beach taking photos, we turned the ceremony area into the dining area.  They had a beautiful dinner under the bistro lighting that my TMMPRO guys did for me as well as other rentals, then after dinner they danced until they were done!  They had all the rooms around the ceremony site which meant they could go until 10pm and were not bothering anyone else.  Paige was a very very happy lady!!


Love a weeknight wedding and you normally get the best teams, which we did for Paige also, Jim of Jim Kennedy Photography, Design Visage prettied up our bride, Simply Sweet Cakery for the cake, EBD Floral team, and a musician that the B&G enjoy at a bar, Brian Stodart who provided all the music, he plays guitar, has a backtrack and sings, he was fabulous and i have now added him to my preferred vendor list!! And Paul Uhlar who officiated, he has the best voice for a ceremony and adds just the right amount of humor when it is needed to break the ice for the couple and the guests.  xoxoxox

Till next time

Surf and Sand Hotel Laguna Wedding

It had been quite a few years since i had done a wedding here and then i was there within two months, how random is that!!!!!!


The ceremony area for the larger weddings is really fabulous, you just stare at the Pacific Ocean beyond, then after a quick turn around, that is also where the guests get to enjoy cocktails.  Another great team on this one: Jim Kennedy Photography/Jim himself, Steve from Honored Occasions kept the dancefloor full, Cinderella Cakes made an incredible cake that was stacked suitcases (they were leaving on a 1 year honeymoon around the world – how lucky were they – so everything was themed around travel), Fantasy Florals did a wonderful job with the florals, Naples Strings provided the ceremony & cocktail music, and TMMPRO provided rentals along with Luxe Linens.  thanks to the ladies and banquet staff at Surf and Sand also  xoxoxo

Till next time
