Hyatt HB Social distanced weddings

Well as we started to have couples wanting to have their weddings and adjusting them according to the mandates that may or may not have been happening or been clear, each hotel created perimeters/changed them as we went along and still are. What you see above if how Hyatt HB did things. No more than 6 (it’s now 4) at a table unless from the same household, stickers on dancefloor to encourage socially distanced dancing (no dancing except protocol dances right now) and after this wedding the cakes had to be no more than 2 tier to fit under an acrylic box that was made to keep the cake safe, because it was real cake. For the ceremony the chairs are spaced out in couples or singles and for most of the smaller weddings, 20 or less, each seat actually had a name on it so everyone knew where they were to be.

This wedding was for Rick and Evelyn, a fun couple who rolled with the punches for their July wedding, the last punch being me breaking my leg a week prior and being unable to get around in time for their wedding. I missed being there with them as they had mariachis for cocktail time (which i love hearing), but again, Nicole and Brittany made it happen and all went as planned and everyone was happy, and a great celebration was had.

Thanks to the vendor team on board for this one: Kevin Reeder/florist, Jeffrey Holmes/officiant, Duane Peck/photographer, Katella Bakery (I missed seeing my lovely cake delivety man) and of course to our team at the Hyatt Hb, can’t do anything without you and thanks for keeping everyone safe!!!!

Till next time

First micro wedding 2020 Hyatt HB

Well, the above wedding seems so long ago now, but it was our first step into what became known as ‘micro weddings’ thanks to covid, where couples had their weddings booked/paid for and if they wanted to keep their date/location had to adjust to what the new rules were at their hotel or county or state, and that my friends was a daily changing thing we have learnt to work with and probably even worse now, when we thought that 2021 would mean we would be free and clear, but not the case.

So with this wedding at the Hyatt Huntington Beach, guest count went down to immediate family only because of guests fear of coming/attending and the couple only wanting attendees they knew who/where they had been which would hopefully mean everyone would be safe. Ceremony chairs were spread way out and based on knowing how many singles versus others were spaced that way and their names were on their chairs. In the dining room it was max 4 per table/as you can see split so there was a good 6′ between couples/singles etc. The dancefloor was used only for first dance/parent dances, no guest dancing or socialising. After cake cutting and eating after dinner, chatting at tables, no mixing or socialising, it was over.

I can remember when the guests had left, Frank Salas/photographer (his pics above) and Peter/Vive Ent-dj and I all looked at each other and didn’t know how we felt but i think each hoped this was a short term thing and we could get back to ‘normal’ wedding celebrations very soon (we are all part of the All you need is love micro wedding package at the hotel, and Elegant by Design is the florist included, as well as Jeffrey Holmes/officiant). I will tell you i heard from the bride after and she was thrilled with everything, loved how it all worked out and felt it was better with the smaller group, so that was wonderful. Covid has definately made us prioritise/change ways of doing things and as the ‘season’ goes on you will see how i think most of the celebrations turned out way better than the original plan.

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

Lynda booked us for day of service and actually had booked either Teri or Nicole on her day, but I was available, so Nicole and I both did her wedding on the day.

Who needs a ceiling hanging point to hang a cake from, a structure was created and it turned out great.

The picture above shows how booking a photographer who looks to do something different pays off, to me this picture could have been taken in Hawaii, but instead its by the Jacuzzi area right here in Huntington Beach, great job as always Lin & Jirsa.

A very shaded structure was created for our couple during their ceremony.

Hyatt Huntington Beach-Vista Ballroom

IMG_0379 IMG_0381

Our lovely Hya was definitely influenced by things she saw on instagram/social media and you will see some in these pics.  Lots of details and a great celebration was had by all.

IMG_0386 IMG_0388

The ceremony was held at a church and Hya had Teri come to the hotel earlier in the day to keep them on track so there was less stress/Hya having to tell the girls where/when to be that morning.

IMG_0389 IMG_0390

Great job Karla/Elegant by Design for bringing it all together and for some of the elements Hya had organized that did not work for your Tammy to take the time to make them work!

IMG_0391 IMG_0393

I’ve been doing weddings in Vista Ballroom since the day the hotel opened and I have draped the whole room which has meant the doors were draped, that was all Hya wanted/needed, and I loved it, she was thinking on the other side, but my Teri and I decided on the day it would have a longer impact if the grand entrance was done through it and anytime guests looked at the doors they saw it on the inside, Hya loved our decision.

IMG_0396 IMG_0399

Lighting went between lavender and pink during the event, and was done along with the dj/mceeing by Invisible Touch.

IMG_0404 IMG_0414

Monico Décor did the rentals and draping.  The team at the Hyatt Huntington Beach as always helped us pull of such a great celebration.

Hyatt Huntington Beach-December wedding

IMG_1666 IMG_1670 IMG_1671  IMG_1677 IMG_1678 IMG_1680  IMG_1683

A lovely December wedding where the xmas décor worked that was in the room.  This was not a green/red look, but a lovely red look.  The ceremony was planned indoors and turned out great, but neither the florist or I got pics that looked any good due to the back lighting through the windows, for that time of year it was great to know the guests were going to be comfortable.  Then they went to the balcony for cocktails where there were heaters and they could enjoy the ocean view, then into the other side of the ballroom for the dinner/dance.  Flowers by Cina/thanks for being awesome as always to work with and of course to the Hyatt HB team for always being a joy to work with and my Hyatt family.

Till next time

Hyatt Huntington Beach wedding

Quick post today.  Kathy booked me for minimum service, she had all her vendors except video, so Shane Productions stepped in there, yay Kim.  Kathy had listened to me regarding the bridge and covering it so you didn’t see guests walking over it during the cere, and I loved the backdrop she had done for the foyer, as they greeted the guests there and had a picture taken with them before they entered the ballroom, and then later guests were coming out and doing their own pics/selfies.

Till tomorrow

Persian wedding at Hyatt Huntington Beach

4 5

I loved Amir and Melika (I know I seem to say that a lot, but its true, I receive lovely lovely couples) and helping her vision (that Amir was happy to go along with always!!) come to reality was just a pleasure.

6 7 8 11

I had all the cultural vendors they needed, the sofreh lady, the tea and fruit lady, and my lovely Shahrzad Ardalan my favourite Persian officiant.  For music DJ Julius was perfect for them and I love working with him.  They found the violinist and the crème de la crème of the night was Kamran and Hooman taking the stage, we were suddenly at a concert and the guests loved it!!

14 15  19 21 22 23    27 33

The rest of the vendor team was hand picked and perfect for their celebration; Frank Salas Photographer (thanks for the pics above), Newport Bay Productions/video, Royal Bakery for another one of their spectacular cakes/display, White Flite for the dove release at the end of the ceremony, Elegant by Design/florals, Henry/famous hair and makeup artist in the Persian community, and TMMPRO for the round white dancefloor (my fave for 2014&15) and the acrylic chiavaris, and Wildflower Linen for our bride and groom chair covers!!  As everyone walked in behind the headtable, everyone saw them and took pics of them!!  And of course, the Hyatt HB & Cheryl for always being so easy to work with/helping me make the dream come true.

Till next time
