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 – 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

We do Indian Wedding Celebrations

Above are just a few of the Indian ceremonies we have done, these being the photos I got my hands on the quickest.  

We have orchestrated Indian wedding celebrations at the Ritz-Carlton/Laguna, St Regis/Monarch Beach (with elephant) and many at the Hyatt Huntington Beach (horses and elephants).  A lot of couples/families choose the Hyatt HB due to the outside catering not being a big issue due to multiple kitchens/loadin access etc, and the main road for the hotel is not busy so you can have the groom come down the road on a horse or elephant for the baraat and celebrate in the convention valet area without interfering with any of the regular hotel traffic.  A couple of the photos above were inside, one was planned the whole time inside because the next day we did a christian ceremony outside at the same hotel, so we didn’t want to duplicate or use the same area for both ceremonies.  The other inside ceremony turned out to be the rainiest day I have ever seen in S CA in February, and due to the coolness outside even if it wasn’t raining it ended up being and would have been a much more comfortable experience for the guests and with the windows behind we still had an outside feel.  The red and orange color combination has been very popular for many years, but as you can see above, some of our Indian brides are making it a bit more ‘their’ style/look/wedding.  Some are multi day, some we are just doing one day.  Always fun to do.  I already have a couple for this year, so looking very forward to seeing them come to fruition.

If you are looking for a co-ordinator on preferred vendor lists with the major OC hotels and who is familiar with Indian wedding celebrations and loves doing them, give me a call, we would love to help you with your wedding.

Till next time

One wedding, one day, two locations

Well I had my first wedding on Sept 11th for a while (for obvious reasons) this year.

A lovely two culture couple which meant the guests got to experience and learn the different ways weddings are celebrated.   My day started with an Indian Wedding Ceremony at the Hyatt HB at 10am in the morning, which was preceded by the grooms arrival on a white horse and the milni which followed.  Prior to that it had started very early at a house the groom’s family was at close to the hotel, thank goodness the bride and I did not have to be there for that too.  This ceremony was followed by a very casual Indian buffet lunch.  Then the bride headed to the groom’s house for another ceremony, while everyone else had some down time.  I meanwhile headed off to the Nixon Library where we were now going to do a christian style wedding ceremony and american style dinner/dance with dj until midnight.  Guests were bussed to and from the Hyatt, as most of them were in house.

Here are some pics to show the very different celebrations that the same 200 guests got to enjoy.

Thanks to their photographer  Edna of Square Eye                 for sharing these photos with us.

This shot is the traditional Indian Ceremony at the Hyatt :

Then the christian style ceremony at Nixon Library:

Then the reception/dinner/dance at the library,  in the beautiful replica of the East Ballroom from the actual White House:

Till next time

See why I love my job, never boring!!

Till next time
