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 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 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 – CA Courtyard & Vista Wedding

Bobby and his bride Julianna and his sister happened to be doing a site visit when I was doing a wedding at Hyatt HB, saw what we had done and booked the Hyatt and me on the spot.  Love that right!!

Beautiful wedding with elements along the way, a 100 white dove release at the end of the ceremony which is always a wow, their first dance in fog/dry ice, special B&G chairs, a dance performance by Karmagraphy Dance Troupe and great colors, white & blue with just a pop of yellow.

Florals and napkins by EBD, thanks as always Karla/Will & Tammy

Doves by my only dove lady ever, White Flite

Draping, dancefloor+decal/chargers/stage cover/chiavaris all by my guys at TMMPRO. Photos above by Jim Kennedy/always a pleasure to work with him & his teams, Design Visage for hair/makeup-never a late bride!! Harp for ceremony & cocktails by my fave Wendy, and dinner/dance music/mceeing by Nick/3D Sounds, and as always, our partners at Hyatt HB since the day the hotel opened, we love being there with you all xoxoxo

Hyatt HB Fountain Room wedding

I mean really, we get to work with the loveliest couples.  When Erin and Jon first met with me I knew we were going to create a beautiful intimate celebration for them.

Draping Fountain Room completely transforms it.  I have actually had couples be offered a ballroom with windows as the day got closer and one was open and we have opted not to because the vision for the Fountain Room is perfecto!!

So the age old question, which way does the decal on the dancefloor go.  I always give my couples the choice, they can read it from their table and if the cake is opposite them it will be the right way if in any pics while they are cutting it, or we have it to where it reads the right way for guests when they enter the room but upside down from the B&G table, again always depending on the setup, no right or wrong, but if you see a decal and think oops it’s upside down, when it’s my couples I have asked and they made the decision, lol!

Our ceremony was at Ca Courtyard, cocktails were then at the Fountain Courtyard and Foyer, and then into Fountain Room we went and yes there were oohs/aaahs from the ladies as they entered, draping/beautiful flowers and lighting/candles will do that!!

Center front of the room was the royal table for the Bridal party (linens/napkins by Luxe Linen), the wedding cake by Sweet Traders was on the other side of the dancefloor from B&G table, Fountain Room has a wee alcove in one corner and that is where we put Jeff/Moondance Mobile Music who was our mcee&dinner/dance music guru.  Naples strings provided the ceremony and cocktail music. EBD Floral knocked it out of the park again as always.  Design Visage for hair/makeup, and TMMPRO did the draping/dancefloor&decal/lighting/chiavaris in the ballroom and bistro lighting out in the Courtyard as guests were able to enjoy that area after sunset also.  I think all the photos here are by the McCunes, none are mine for a change, so Gloria knows what i am looking for for my blogs, lol.  And of course thanks to the great peeps at Hyatt HB, we have been blessed to be doing weddings with you since the resort opened, 17 years ago!

Till next time

Another Hyatt HB wedding

Karen and William were just a pleasure.  Soft/gentle/kind, and their celebration gives a glimmer of that to those in attendance and then in photos after.  We did a mix of long and round tables, using hotel linens but rental napkins and cake table linen.  They were in the Huntington Ballroom and had a linear headtable which they wanted their backs to the windows as they had a band/Lucky Devils, and they needed to be along the service wall, but they didn’t want the windows as their backdrop, so TMMPRO draped the windows the length of the headtable and also provided the dancefloor and their custom decal as well as the acrylic chiavaris and lighting, thanks as always.

 

Design Visage prettied the ladies up, EBD floral did their magic in both areas, Naples Strings were our pre/cere/cocktail music, and McCunes were the photographers and i think for once it is all the photographers pics here, none of mine, so either i was really busy to get the shots i needed/wanted, lol, or Gloria and Cory were perfecto!!  And of course to our family at Hyatt HB where we have worked since the day the hotel opened, about 17 years now, we love you and thank you for helping us make dreams come true

Hyatt HB wedding – Vista Ballroom

I had been looking forward to this wedding for many reasons, i loved the couple and it would be my first sofreh on CA Courtyard, had done Lighthouse Lawn before, but most of all, the bride and my dream was to carpet the Vista Ballroom, and we did, thanks to Above the Top Rentals who did an excellent job.  Add to that the draping/round dancefloor/sweetheart sofa/lighting by TMMPRO, it all turned out fabulously xoxo

Till next time

Hyatt Huntington Beach Intimate wedding

IMG_8845 IMG_8846 IMG_8847

Melody booked Nicole to oversee/orchestrate things on her wedding day.  This was a destination wedding and a lovely intimate group of family and close friends who attended. Melody booked us for Month of service but used our preferred vendor list to pull her vendor team together, and when the service officially began, Lisa pulled everything together/double checked everything Melody had organized, created the detailed timeline/order of events and then Nicole ran the celebration on the day.

IMG_8848 IMG_8849 IMG_8850

Dj Steve Burdick and Nicole were a great team, not often we get pics of lovely Lauren with Design Visage but there she is putting finishing touches on our bride, and there is our happy bride, thanks to Joel Austell/photographer for the pictures above, and of course fabulous Heather at Hyatt Huntington Beach for always being so wonderful to work with, xoxoxoxo

Fountain Room Hyatt HB wedding

franco_4384

I swear I take pics at all weddings when I get a minute, but could not find my pics on this one at all, so thanks to Jim Kennedy for coming through and getting me these pics.  They don’t do a lot of wedding receptions in the Fountain Room, in fact I think this is only my 3rd since the day the hotel opened, but it is a great way to have your daylight wedding/cocktails then move the guests into an enclosed room where they immediately feel they are at an evening wedding.

Emily’s colors were gold/white and pop of tiffany blue, so as you can see the hotel chairs worked for a change, we had tiffany blue linens on cake and sweetheart tables and of course the napkins and by using the hang fold it really allows the blue to be effective in pictures and when guests first enter the room.
