Bye 2019, hi 2020 wedding – Ritz Laguna

It seems every 2 years or so I get a NY eve wedding and the years I want to be in NZ or elsewhere I don’t even get an inquiry, so works out aok from my end.  Andrew and Erika were a blast to work with, they asked for direction/got it and did their own thing and followed direction perfectly to where we had the best vendor team on to work their wedding and spend that evening with.  They were a joy and pleasure to work with and be a part of their wedding celebration, we all loved them and were honored.

TMMPRO for the dancefloor/custom gobo/balcony benches/lighting, Square Root did the florals and had to improvise for the ceremony as the original plan for the front was not a good idea as it was a bit windy, but what they did by turning the pedestals sideways was brilliant, David I love you xoxox

The gentleman who handles majority of the wedding tastings and follows me without question on the In N out burger parade, ladies and gentlemen, I present Chuck xox

Joe Latter was on board for the night taking photos, some of these are his and some of mine/the bad ones, lol, are mine.  De Capo players/5 piece strings, provided beautiful ceremony/cocktail music, and my pal Peter/Vive Entertainment brought in the NY 2 times, East coast and West coast and kept people there/dancefloor full inbetween, kudos to him, I had my doubts, lol. OC Flower Wall for the champagne hedge we used at one end of the room for the 9pm NY champagne toast and after that for a selfie backdrop, Viralbooth OC for the surprise Photobooth that opened after dinner at the other end of the ballroom, Design Visage for hair/makeup (never a late bride for me unless the bride says she wants to be late, whaaaaaaaaaaat?? lol) Luxury Lifestyle Studio/video & drone, our rectangle mirror tables came from Chiavari Chair Rentals, and Luxe Linens provided the napkins.

     

As always thanks to our partners at the Ritz-Carlton Laguna, teamwork always makes the dreamwork.

Till next time

Nobu Cabo

Are you a Nobu fan?  did you know you could immerse yourself in the Nobu experience by staying and eating at the Nobu Resort in Cabo?  Whether vacation, honeymoon or your destination wedding, let’s do this.  I have a travel partner to help with your or your guests air/hotel/transfers and any excursions or group excursions we plan, and I help with the wedding, so it’s easy breezy from your end!!

This resort is very large, spread-out and modern/clean feeling.  Tons of space for wedding celebration events, small or large.

Look at the beautiful rock work behind each bath in the hotel rooms, it’s amazing.

Let’s do this!!

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

Beautiful Ritz Laguna Terrace Salon wdg

When i showed Rachel her ballroom she gasped.  I said ‘it’s like a beautiful garden’ and she said ‘that’s exactly what i wanted and i didn’t even realise it’  thanks to Square Root for nailing it.  Look at that ceremony setup, stunning.

  

We did a mixture of rectangle and round tables in Terrace Salon and tons of candles.

It was a beautiful destination wedding for sure!! Thanks to Brett Hickman for the pics, it had been a while since we had worked together, good to be back, Hoo Films Video, Design Visage for hair/makeup, not only did Square Root do the gorgeous florals but they also did the linens/dancefloor/stage covers/uplights and TMMPRO did the chiavaris and the band/sheart&cake lighting.  Downbeat LA provided strings for the cere/cocktails and kept the dancefloor going, they were excellent.  Thanks again to the ladies & gentlemen at the Ritz-Carlton Laguna, always a pleasure to work with you to create these memories.

Till next time

Fashion Island Hotel NYE wedding

It seems every 3 years i get a NYE wedding, and i don’t mind at all.  You see people not just celebrating a wedding but really celebrating, lol.

So the weather held out for us and it wasn’t that cold so we kept the ceremony outdoors, that blur you see is a chandelier that EBD Floral did as well as all the florals, unfortunately their photographer was a guest and from England and he promised to get me pics but never did, so i am finally posting this with my iPhone pics, so sorry.

Inside the ballroom where the dinner/dance was held, the lighting, dancefloor, draping along the service wall & chargers were done by my TMMPRO team, yay as always.  The dessert table was done by Simply Sweet Cakery, and the band was a cover band of the Dave Matthews Band, the bride LOVES and i mean LOVES Dave Matthews Band, don’t think its Dave Matthews more than the band, but who knows, lol, she has been to a few hundred concerts/somewhat follows them around.  So after dinner when the dancing got going Tracey was on that dancefloor singing/knew the words to every single song.  I loved watching the groom sitting at their table just enjoying watching her have fun.  We saw the NY in in style with balloons and a group photos of everyone on the dancefloor who made it till then, these people partied!!!

Now what Tracey never knew through our planning months was that one of my husband and my good friend is best friends with Dave Matthews Tour Manager and we have been backstage and to a concert which was fab, so i reached out to the tour manager to see if on the wedding day i could have Dave call my cell and i could have him personally wish her a happy wedding day, alas they were on xmas break and Dave was not to be bothered/family time etc, geez, lol, so instead i gave them the brides address and when she got home from honeymoon there was a package from Dave Matthews to her where he had signed a bunch of stuff for her.  She was thrilled and surprised.

Till next time

Santa Barbara – Ritz-Carlton wedding

I love being a part of the Ritz-Carlton family when it comes to weddings!!  This is my 5th Ritz property i have done a wedding at, and in 2020 i will be adding my 6th property, for a bit i thought i may be adding my 7th this year but alas not quite yet!! lol

Amanda and Jordan really lucked out (and they were just the sweetest BTW), when they booked the property was not a Ritz, but during the process it became a Ritz, so they got all the benefits of a 5 star brand but were contracted based on the previous owner/rates etc, yay for them, lol.

So we did the ceremony at the upper site which gives such a great backdrop of the sweeping coastline, pic above

The iconic round room, we did transitioned from outdoor dining/toasts, to the guests gathering around them in the mid area cutting cake and saying their words, then flowed into the dance room where of course we did my fave round dancefloor, Amanda wanted the ceiling draped from the beginning, and lighting all done by my TMMPRO pals.

The balcony with the furniture was off the dancing room and this is where we had the Photobooth.  Very popular area for people to hang out at and see in to the dancing room and not feel like they were missing out on anything

Cocktails were on the balcony up by the main building, under where the dinner/dance would be.  Still had an ocean view which was lovely.

The team at Ritz-Carlton Santa Barbara were a dream to work with, and now they are headed by my long time hotel friend Fernanda Jaime (started with her at Ritz Laguna and have now been through 3 hotels with her, yayyy), and we had a great vendor team, Duke (obviously the dark pics above are mine not his), Hoos Films for video, and my partners that go with me wherever i go, Design Visage for the ladies hair/makeup, Flowers by Cina, and Peter Pop/Vive Ent for the music in all areas and kept that dancefloor full once we got in that awesome loungy room. xoxoxo

Till next time

Vendors came together for this one

There was a special backstory to this wedding, they booked short term (which has turned into a thing this year, with my short term couples booking a hotel from 5 days prior to 4 weeks prior and off we go, I have always had 6-8 week out couples and longer of course, but this is the year of very short term, and I love the challenge, and as fate has it, my couples are ending up with awesome vendors who were also available, so I call that fate and we were waiting for you but you didn’t know it) and between the hotel, me and then the vendors who came on board we all went over and above, and Brenda was such a sweet bride we wanted her to have the wedding of her dreams and she did!

It was a morning ceremony and lunch reception with no dancing, so we did a different setup in the beautiful Pavilion ballroom with the sweetheart table at the end of the room

 

Thanks to the awesome vendor team on this one, Frank Salas/Photographer, Flowers by Cina, Design Visage, Peter/Vive Ent for all the music, and Michelle at the Ritz-Carlton Laguna for making it work for this lovely couple and wonderful mother of the groom.

It really was all our pleasure to make Brenda’s dream come true, her tears only reinforced why we do what we do.

Till next time

Beautiful wedding for a sweet bride

What a joy Ina was to work with, Frank Salas (thanks for the photos), Flowers By Cina and I kept saying how lucky we were to each other.

I always use TMMPRO for the dancefloor/chairs/lighting but this time we even had Jack himself as the dj, love it.

 

Another Sunset Terrace and Plaza beautiful intimate celebration, xoxoxox

Laguna Cliffs Indian wedding

We have done Indian wedding celebrations all over S Ca, but this was our first at Laguna Cliffs.  You will notice that our lovely bride strayed from the traditional colors used for the wedding (my brides tend to stray).

They actually booked Teri for the day as I was already booked, but I managed to make it for the Indian am ceremony before I headed off to my wedding, and Teri and the team carried on with the luncheon, the pm ceremony/cocktails/dinner/dance.

 

Thanks to Lin & Jirsa for the pics, they turned out wayyyyyy better than any of the ones we took on our phones, lol!!

 

Thanks to the team at Laguna Cliffs, as always we love working with you

Till next time

Older couple elegant wedding celebration

This wedding was wonderful.  An older couple who had found each other and wanted to celebrate with their family and friends, and this was one celebration where you could feel the love and genuine want for them to be happy/enjoy life together.  It was a January wedding and the ceremony was planned for indoors from the beginning, so there was never a worry about the wedding or it being too dark/cold outside.

Thanks to Karla at Elegant by Design for really listening and making the bride so happy, she was not really wanting many florals, so the perfect mix was created giving a very elegant/romantic feel, along with the full room draping we did and the round glossy/seamless dancefloor which was more full than I normally see, now whether that is because this group loves to dance, or the fact that my fave band, Full Spectrum with Adam Jackson, was playing, hmmmm not sure but could have been both!!  Thanks to the team at Island Hotel for being so wonderful to work with, this year we look like we are going to be there once a month. xoxoxox

Till next time
