Destination wedding, from Scotland to St Regis Monarch Beach

0065 0070

Everything was done by email and a perfect celebration was held for these fabulous 13 people who flew in from Scotland for this wedding.  Of course we had a bagpiper to lead everyone from ceremony site to the dining room.  Cocktails were held on a balcony watching a beautiful CA sunset and a lovely dinner was held in the private dining room off Stonehill Restaurant.  Thanks to Joe Latter/photographer for being fab, and for the pics, Design Visage for beautifying Gillian, Annie of La Tulipe/floral designer, and Paul Uhlar for as always doing a great ceremony and giving the guests a giggle.  Fascinators in the house at the ceremony, I love the formality of weddings from commonwealth countries. Gillian also brought me some real shortbread that I savored with my cups of afternoon tea for many weeks after the wedding. Yum yum, happy Lisa.

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.

Such a lovely beach side wedding.  You must be a member of the beach club to have a wedding here.  That view is pretty hard to beat.  Lots of cute touches.  Thanks to Joe Latter for the photos, Design Visage for keeping Lauren’s hair and makeup look great all event in the elements, Monico Décor for the rentals, and of course the team at the Beach Club who were so fabulous and wanting to help me with everything.

End of year thank yous

Oops, got to hit post on this one as I have a bunch more to post from 2015, these below are from weddings at the end of 2014

It’s so lovely as the year ends to have the thank you notes coming in, at a time when you are maybe a bit weary and looking for a bit of a break, these notes remind you why you do what you do, and get you motivated to start all over again with another year of lovely couples.

Handwritten cards:
From a vendor whose daughter’s wedding I did, she gave me this card the night of the wedding:
Dear Lisa, Thank you soo much for all your help organizing Amanda’s wedding! You are the best! I will always tell people you were my daughters wedding coordinator! Hugs, Wendy

Lisa, Thank you so much for all of your hard work in making our wedding day so special! We truly don’t know what we would have done without you. You are excellent at what you do. Everything ran so smoothly and we really appreciated having you there. Best Anne & Marshall

From a wedding I did for one of our lovely hotel peeps who I have worked with and known for a few years:
Lisa! Thank you for being a part of this day! I appreciate everything that you have done for us to make this day special. I love you so much and couldn’t think about anyone but you to make this day special and memorable. Love you! Holly and James

From a 2015 bride that I met for the first time when she came into town for her hotel tasting/floral sample day, until that time everything we planned/were doing was by phone/email/web:
Dear Lisa. Thank you so very much for all of your help over the past months. I know that the wedding hasn’t even occurred yet, but if it is anything like the tasting, walkthrough, floral sample and linen sample, I know it will be amazing. You truly are gifted at your job! Counting the days until we see you in January! Cathy & Keith

Email thank yous:
From the same vendor above, she sent this email 2 days after the wedding:
Dear Lisa, Thank you so very much for making Amanda’s wedding come off so wonderfully. I always have admired how excellent your weddings are!!! You are AMAZING!! Organizational skills off the charts!! Looking forward to working with you soon. God bless. Wendy

This email came from a groom a few months after their wedding, he had a wicked sense of humor that kept me very amused during the planning months and on the wedding day:
Hello Lisa, We finally received our pictures from the photographer, and I looked great! However, that is not the reason for this email. I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know how much fun everyone had at the wedding, and I personally thought that the room and the rep was really beautiful. Now typically, I don’t get too crazy about these things, but it really was over the top beautiful And a lot of the guests commented on how it was one of the nicest weddings they’ve been to – I don’t know if this was BS but I don’t think it was. Anyway you really did a stand-up job Lisa. If I know anyone else getting married in LA I will refer your services. Great work and thanks again. Damon & Tai

And from his bride, came this email:
Thank you so much Lisa! You did a wonderful job

Hi Lisa, I wanted to send you a note thanking you for all that you did to make our wedding so spectacular. Our wedding was everything I had dreamed of and much much more. Club 19 turned out absolutely perfect. You had everything set up just the way I had envisioned it. I can’t wait to see Jim’s pics. Thank you for keeping us on track throughout the day and for all your help and assistance with the vendors and the guidance leading up to the big event. Couldn’t have done it without you. I’ve had so many people ask me did anything go wrong that day and I’ve said ‘not a thing, it was perfect’. Thank you for that. Thanks again for making our day so special and perfect. Best, Stephanie Craig

And from her groom came an email also:
Just wanted to thank you for the help with the wedding Lisa!

From my Indian wedding two weeks ago:
Hello Lisa, My dad and I want to thank you for throwing such an AMAZING and memorable event this past weekend. You helped keep us all in line when we needed it the most. Thank you for everything, everyone is STILL talking bout the weekend, especially the wedding ceremony, which could not have been more perfect. Thank you for everything. Love, Ragini and Vishwa

Ahhh, you all warm my heart, thank you
Till next time
