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 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 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

Hyatt HB – Fun Vista Ballroom wedding

 

From my first meeting with Greg and Arlynne I knew this was going to be a fun one and i said to Arlynne, ‘your life is never going to be boring with this one’.  Greg constantly makes jokes and is just funny and he wanted the wedding to be that way and incorporate elements that guests would know he had input, Arlynne just let him do his thing and he took the lead.  He came up with some wacky ideas that i would at first say, yeah sure lets do that, then i would realise he was being serious and have to say, oh hang on let’s really talk this through.  lol

 

From the get go the donut wall was major, he really wanted donuts from his favourite store as everyone knows he goes there everyday, but unfortunately that was not able to happen so the hotel provided the board and donuts and they did them in blue which was the wedding color and did them in a heart.

From the Blue wands with bells that everyone waved during the ceremony when it took their fancy to when the Bridal Party exited the cere (the wands had meaning for the bride and were her one important item), the LOVE sign in the foyer, the mirror seating chart,  the best band ever (lol, as Greg and the guests were all saying at the end, and yes they did extend the band because that dancefloor was full and they couldn’t get enough of Adam and the Full Spectrum band), to the In N Out cake (also made by Sweet Traders that made the wedding cake) because everyone knows Greg also loves In N Out-that his bride surprised him with, that was the only item he knew nothing about and we pulled that off, whew!!  There was always something that the guest’s were saying, this is awesome, what a great time.

They sat at a small oval table with their bestman&wife and matronOH&husband and the guests were at rounds with a mix of tall/low centerpieces (florals all by EBD of course!!). To Jacqueline Kay Photography (the pics above are a mix of her’s and mine), Shane Productions/video, Design Visage for hair/makeup and keeping the ladies on time, TMMPRO for my fave round dancefloor/lighting/chargers/stage cover, thank you to our custom vendor team who got the vibe and made it happen, and to our friends at Hyatt HB always xoxoxo

And yes this is cake!!! from vendors to hotel staff to guests, people were amazed!!!  Someone even asked me, will it taste like cake or a burger, and what about the French fries?  Hmmm, good question, i had no idea and as we did not cut any of it, it went to the B&G room to enjoy the next day, i never asked, so we will never know, lol!!

Till next time

Hyatt HB – CA Courtyard&Vista Blrm

 

Loved the Ficksman family, all were involved and it was a fun ride.

They got to do the Lighthouse Courtyard ceremony location with Vista Ballroom which is not normal, and you then have a choice, direct to the lighthouse/bridge or angle to the sunset or to the south, they chose sunset and boy during the ceremony was that sky beautiful.

Great job Flowers by Cina in managing to have the blue show through in the flowers, as that was their main color.  For once the canopy was a true chuppah being used for a Jewish ceremony and we used my fave very flexible Rabbi Ian from San Diego, he is a gem.

thanks to Joe Latter for the photos and always being great to work with, TMMPRO for the draping/lighting/chiavaris/chargers/B&G sofa and my fave round dancefloor, Naples Strings for cere/cocktail music and Peter/Vive Entertainment who understands and now asks if I am draping so he should bring his façade and white covered speakers, so everything he has disappears into the look of the room, yay!!  And to Viral Booth OC who always waits patiently for us to get the Grand Entrance done before they can come into the foyer of this ballroom and setup for the after dinner Photobooth surprise.  And of course, as always, to our pals at Hyatt HB, together we make wedding dreams come true

Till next time

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 Huntington Beach Wedding

Well this was a lovely one.  I had done the groom’s sister’s wedding a few years earlier at the Ritz Laguna where the dad, bride and i planned that wonderful wedding, and then i get a call from the dad saying guess what, time to do my son’s wedding.  I was in!!

It was an intimate group, under 60, and they had the Vista Ballroom, so we got creative with the setup, did the dancefloor as a diamond which meant we could space all the tables around the edges and no one was in the 2nd row!!  We used most of the vendors we had at the sister’s wedding but some were already booked, it all turned out beautiful and i wish they had more children, but it was just the two!! boo hoo, lol

Thanks to Jacqueline Kay Photography for always being lovely to work with, Paul Uhlar for his lovely ceremony, TMMPRO for the lighting/draping/dancefloor&decal, Sweet Traders for the cake, Karen’s Flowers (no insta or website) and DJ Mister Bill who sadly is no longer doing weddings, all fabulous and perfect for this intimate wedding.  And of course to the team at Hyatt HB, always a joy being with you all xoxoxox

Till next time

Hyatt Huntington Beach wedding

Jill and Jonathan are awesome.  They live in Huntington Beach and Jonathan is a volleyball player that lives at the beach, so having their wedding celebration at Hyatt HB was a no brainer.  When they booked me to help them plan/orchestrate their wedding we had one date and along the way it changed and I was already booked at the hotel for another couple, so the cool thing was, even though Nicole/one of my Day of Co-ordinators, orchestrated their event on the day, I was able to go over and see how everything looked and hug this great couple.  They did not want the sunset angle or straight on to the lighthouse for the ceremony so we angled the ceremony towards Vista Ballroom and the pics turned out aok, have actually done this a couple of times now, then the guests had cocktails on the Vista Balcony looking out to the beach that Jonathan loves so much, and then in to Vista Ballroom, where we have done the majority of our wedding celebrations at Hyatt HB and i think more in that room than anyone else!!

And my time with them continued, they honeymooned through me at Sandals in Granada in a beautiful suite with an infinity pool on their balcony and an awesome view of the resort looking out to the ocean, and now 3 years later through Instagram we like each others posts and i get to go through their fertility struggle with them  xoxox

Thanks to Nicole and the team for ensuring a great celebration for them and their guests, Joel Austell/photo, Design Visage for prettying the ladies up, Jim Vita/Guitarist for cere/cocktail music, Peter/Vive Entertainment for the dinner/dancing music & mceeing, Sweet Traders for the beautiful cake, EBD Floral as always great job, TMMPRO for my favourite round dancefloor & decal/draping/lighting/chiavaris, Luxe linens for linens/napkins and of course to the peeps at Hyatt Hb for always being wonderful to work with, go team!!!  xoxxo

Till next time
