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 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

         

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 – 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 – 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 – Indian Wedding

So this was the second child of this family that I was honored to do a wedding for.  The funny thing is I was at the Hyatt HB doing a wedding when they were doing their site visits with hotels and bumped into me and said, we think we will do it here and look here you are, lol.

We did the ceremony on the CA Courtyard Lawn which with the canopies and guest count pretty much maxed the lawn out, but it worked.  Then cocktails were held on Huntington Ballroom balcony, then into Huntington Ballroom we went.

A wee room by the catering office is the perfect spot for the bride to watch the baraat from.  Raj came in on Daisy the horse who we use a lot.

 

My fave Indian Priest/officiant Shukavek officiated and as always did a great job.

We draped the service wall of the ballroom, it makes such a difference, and they loved the round dancefloor when i mentioned it, so we added that in too.

 

Special Occasions handled the baraat and all music/mceeing and kept the dancefloor full as you can see.  Thanks to Matei for some of the pics above and some are mine.  Thanks to the Hyatt HB as always for helping me get things done!! xoxo

Till next time

My last wedding of 2015-Hyatt HB

0025noemail

I even spent all year looking forward to this wedding happening, because a month after Jacqueline booked me she found out her husband was being moved by the military to another state, so I told her no problem 70% of my brides don’t live in state we can get your wedding planned easily from afar, then while I was driving somewhere I had a thought, so I called her and said, Jacqueline if you are in, lets get everything done in the next month and then you can leave and the wedding will be planned and you won’t have to worry about anything, so we met with/booked all vendors, detailed the wedding day/event out, did the floral sample/rental meeting, the hotel tasting/detail, then off she moved!!!  Fabulous

0062

We pulled together an awesome vendor team and had such a great time with everyone on the day, Jacqueline was just the best and her bridesmaids were wonderful/such great friends, the parents were great too.  Jacqueline decided to have me start earlier in the day to keep everyone on track and get them off to the church, as when she booked me if was to handle the planning with her and then be at the hotel on the day to oversee/orchestrate the reception/dinner/dance, so she extended that (which was a very popular option last year) and it really meant that by the time everyone arrived for the reception we were old friends.  Thanks to Joe Latter/photo for the photos and being great to work with as always, karla/Elegant by Design-florals, Monico Décor for the draping (we did the whole wall behind the sweetheart table)/my fave the round white dancefloor/furniture/chairs/linens etc.  The lighting/gobo was done by the inhouse PSAV department, Tomgirl Bakery did the cake and as always it was yum, Peter/Vive Ent for the great music and B&G left before it was over but that dancefloor was full until the guests were done/I thought it would wind down after B&G left but ohhhhh noooooooo!!  And to Design Visage for beautifying these beauties and the moms, not that any of them really needed it, they were all beautiful in and out.  And to the team at Hyatt HB, as always we see you as family and love being with you and everything is always fabulous, this was a great way to end the year of 2015 with.

0649  0655  0657   0664 0665 0667 0670

In these pics you will see some when the lights are up before guests came in and some after, and even though some people question it, I have always placed the cake center in the room (why should something you spend so much time on be stuck in a corner for no one to see or care about) and even if no other lighting is done we always pinspot the cake, you can see why in these pics, it stands out and looks great.

Till tomorrow

Hyatt Huntington Beach Celebration

IMG_1274 IMG_1301

Ashley and mom booked me for a small service but did check in with me along the way when they needed advise/referrals etc.  Such a small world, when we met to interview mom as talking about a friend of theirs/a chef who would be attending the wedding, I asked who it was, and it turned out to be a chef I worked very closely with during my years with Disney, he was as passionate about the food being excellent for the weddings/events as I was about the weddings/events being fabulous.  As the wedding got closer they realized they wanted me there earlier on the day to keep them on track and get them the church on time, it certainly meant a smooth day for them and they knew all was well at the hotel while they were over there.

IMG_1304 IMG_1309

I’m not a fan of headtables being on a riser and you can see why here, unless you cover the stage the hotels black stands right out and it also makes you see a bit unapproachable to guests.  Ashley’s colors were gold, so this was one wedding where the hotel banquet chairs worked/were more comfy than chivaris.  Thanks to Flowers by Allie by doing a great job with the florals and the many many candles and to Monico Décor for the rental linens/draping.  They booked Bruce Battleson to dj/mcee which made me happy, haven’t seen Bruce for a while, and to Flawless Faces for beautifying all the ladies.  And of course to the team at Hyatt HB, as always a pleasure to work with from beginning to end.
