Hyatt Huntington Beach fun celebration

photophoto 2

I really do get the best couples, so so lucky.  Samantha and Chris were just awesome, we had way too much fun pulling this celebration together.  They are both from England but moved to Huntington Beach to work, so we had a great mix of locals and English folk!!  Fascinators in the house for sure.  Fun details that were obvious reflections of them, Sam lived on Etsy and the signature drink sign was perfect, it actually keeps getting re-grammed on my instagram when friends of brides see it, Sam’s bike/noted below, I showed them my neighbours fun program from his wedding last year and they took it and ran with it, full of fun/interesting facts that totally get the guests involved and they learn stupid stuff about the couple/wedding planning, which they love.  Right after the ceremony I went to pull Sam and Chris back for the group/combo pics and guess what I found them doing, a selfie, you can see that below, of course my first question to them was, who the heck had a cell phone on them, yes groom guilty as charged at least he had it on silent!!  Too funny

We pulled together a great team to reflect how they are; Joel Austell/photographer and thanks for the pics, Linda Trott for as always officiating a great ceremony and is one of the few officiants out there that can provide the marriage license and we had the B&G sign it during the cere as that is something that is done in Commonwealth countries, I did it during my ceremony too.  Design Visage for beautifying the ladies and they looked great until the end, Karla Flores/Elegant by Design for hearing us and bringing the vision to reality. Jim Vita/guitar for cere/cocktails, Peter/Vive Entertainment for djing/mceeing wonderfully as always and keeping that dancefloor full until the end and the encores!!  Monico for the rentals, Luxe Linens for the perfect shade for the napkins, and 4 Snapz for the photobooth/backdrop which incorporated Samantha’s favorite thing her beach bike which Karla decorated.  And of course to the Hyatt HB, they picked you because Huntington Beach is so important to them and their lives, and as always the team worked flawlessly with us to bring it all together and create a great celebration/memories for everyone involved, thank you, thank you, thank you.

Fun Hyatt Huntington Beach wedding

This is the view my bride Lisa (yes I have a few of those, weird isn’t it!!) had herself, the groom, and their friends/family (about 50 of them) fly across the country for.

This wedding was all about fun for those that made the trip and embracing the fact that they were at the beach.  Everyone was to wear flip flops and yes that is sand scattered over the placecard table.  They had Epod photobooth, rentals by Monico Décor, a guitarist for cere/cocktails and one of my fave djs for the dinner/dancing.  Design Visage kept my bride looking lovely from beginning to end, lovely florals from one of my lovely fave florists, and photos by Joel Austell.

It was all about the cake, and not because of how the cake looked on the outside, but because of what color the inside of the cake they cut into was, why……. because if it was blue my bride was going to have a baby boy and if it was pink a girl, guess what it was pink.  There were tears everywhere, including from me!! So touching and memorable.

Till tomorrow
