Island Hotel – Newport Beach

I was at the Island Hotel when this bride and groom and her parents were walking around looking at it as a potential for her wedding reception, and they liked what they saw me doing for that wedding and I got booked for Maria’s. Their ceremony was at a church that does not have church ladies and I have done a few there now, so I was over there getting everyone up the aisle too.

From our awesome placecard table floral to the church and the ballroom, EBD Floral did a beautiful job again as always.

Linens and napkins came from Luxe.  We even had caricature artists after dinner which were very popular.

Thanks to Jacqueline Kay for some of the photos above and some are mine, the bad ones, lol.  And as always, to the Island Hotel team, thank you for being awesome.

Till next time

Island Hotel fabulous ceremony & reception – Newport Beach

For nearly a year I had the pleasure of helping Danielle and her mom (her stepmom really but you would not know it, what a wonderful relationship they have and even dad made mention of it during his toast) and Dad pull together what I had no doubt was going to be a beautiful and fun celebration.

I had done wedding ceremonies at Island Hotel at their old ceremony area which is no longer there,  but not done any at their only outdoor area for ceremonies the Cabana Patio, so this was my first and it turned out beautifully.

The cake picture does not do it any justice, but that cake was beautiful, the pastry chef at Island Hotel really puts his heart into every cake, love him.

From the beginning the colors were black and white and we went all the way, black linens/napkins (from Luxe Linens), chairs and dancefloor and with the off white draping we added around the room (by TMMPRO who also did the lighting, we stuck with amber to allow the candle light from the tables to stand out more) the florals were able to stand out.  Beautiful job with the ceremony floral, draping and chandeliers by Flowers by Cina and in the ballroom too, lots of glass and candles, it was fabulous.

The pics above and below are a mix of mine and Jacqueline Kay Photography, love working with them.  Thanks to Design Visage for keeping everyone on time, unlike a couple of weddings I did after this one who did not use them and put everything behind so brides ended up with very little of the photography they may have gone in hoping to get.  We had Naples Strings for the ceremony and they moved to cocktails, so easy to work with, and to the team at Island with Deanna at the helm, we are lucky enough right now to be there once a month, and love being there, the banquet captains are fab and the hotel has such a great feel and because they don’t have a lot of ballroom space its like being at an exclusive/one wedding a day only venue/hotel, but not paying for it.

Wayne Foster Band did the mceeing and music, I LOED their grand piano that they brought in and put on the stage which is a feat in itself, not many bands do that, but let me add that it was covered in crystals, beautiful.

Then my new fave vendor from 2016, The Sugar Philosophers, Kim does a beautiful job, very elegant displays, our bride wanted this one colorful and it was.  This table was the placecard table earlier, I love reusing that table.

Till next time

Ritz-Carlton Laguna Wedding

gleeson_0532 gleeson_0554

From the day the bride and her parents came to meet with me I knew we were going to have a fun time pulling this wedding together and then seeing it all evolve on the day.

The brides parents got married here at the Ritz-Carlton Dana Point 30 years ago and one of the Uncles had also been married there, so a real family tradition/location they consider personal is what this beautiful hotel means to them all.  So very special

gleeson_0941 gleeson_0949

Navy blue was a very popular accent or dominant color for weddings in 2016 and totally worked with the new carpet that appeared in the Terrace Room during the year, lol.

gleeson_0953  gleeson_0968

As you can see, my brides style was more natural and she wanted all low centerpieces and was not a colored/seamless/glossy dancefloor kind of girl, so we used the one provided by the hotel.  As always the balcony of the Terrace Salon with the furniture and firepits was very popular once dinner was over, and when I left there was actually a small group of guests still sitting out there not ready to call it a night (the B&G, parents and other guests were in the hotel bar).

gleeson_0982

We pulled together the perfect team, everyone was so happy to be there working on this wedding because they were just lovely lovely people.  Thanks to Frank Salas for the photos and being fab as always, Karla/Elegant by Design for ‘getting’ the vision perfectly, Peter/Vive Ent for the dinner/dancing music, to Naples for the strings for the ceremony and being so great to always work with, to Luxe Linens for the napkins and linens that brought the key color to reality, to Design Visage for beautifying everyone and being on time and always working with my schedule and to Paul Uhlar for doing a really great ceremony as always/we have done around 2000 together over the years, and last but not least our team/friends/family at the Ritz-Carlton Dana Point, its been 15 years of a beautiful relationship, happy brides and grooms/happy guests/happy hotel/happy Lisa!!

Till next time

Ritz-Carlton Laguna/Pavilion Ballroom

img_0712

A very busy bride and a lovely mom and I had a great journey which ended up with a really fabulous celebration.  Tiffany had an inspiration picture with the floral runner/candles inset which she loved, so of course we always knew we would have rectangle tables to be able to use that design on.  Along the way we created the perfect vendor team for them and the vision went from one picture to many other elements that created her custom wedding.

img_0715 img_0718

Of course the seamless dancefloor and decal were from my new fave vendor of 2015 TMMPRO, along with the boxed florals infront of the stage which became a big had to have in 2015, doesn’t it all look fabulous!!  The luge for the signature drink was by fabulous Mark of Icebulb.

img_0720 img_0740

The use of benches on the balcony gives a lot more seating if wanting to add a furniture area along with the regular tall and low cocktail tables, and Tiffany wanted a firepit from tthe beginning so of course there it was on the night

munyon_0913 munyon_0920

Pre cocktail pic of the view from the balcony and why so many local and destination wedding couples choose this hotel and space to celebrate at.  Don’t you love the placecard table display, so fluffy, thanks to the hydrangea table top cover.

munyon_1112 munyon_1114 munyon_1118  munyon_1129

Carrying on the hydrangea runner look/feel to the headtable and these pics showcase the beautiful Luxe Linen that was usd on the headtable and the rectangle tables in the room

munyon_1136 munyon_1138 munyon_1140 munyon_1145   munyon_1154

3 different Luxe Linens were used throughout the room, lots of texture/looks, love it.

munyon_1182

Great vendor team on board for this wedding.  Frank Salas/photographer-thanks as always for being such a great team player, Elegant by Design for bringing our beginning design thoughts through to reality as always, Lake Forest limousines for the Packard and limos used to get everyone from the hotel to the church to the hotel, and of course, to our fabulous team/family at the Ritz-Carlton-we love you soooooo much!!!!  And to the best band ever – well that is what all my couples say during and after their weddings, Full Spectrum Music/Adam Jackson, mom and bride took forever to book them even though I kept saying I would not steer you wrong, on the night mom comes over to me and says, Lisa this band is sooo good, guests keep coming up and telling me the best wedding band they have ever heard, why don’t everyone just book them immediately!!  I said to her, tell me about it, lol

Till next time

Monarch Beach Resort fab wedding

463p0066 d20c0589

Oh how I enjoyed working with these two.  A surgeon and a designer, great style and taste.

We pulled together the perfect vendor team for them, Frank Salas/photo (thanks for the photos here), Elegant by Design floral/Karla and her awesome team, Albert/dj, linens by Luxe and the blue by Wildflower – actually custom made for them as it was a certain shade of blue they wanted, TMMPRO for the acrylic chivaris, and to Classic Party Rentals for the china used for the fabulous luncheon the guests got to enjoy, and last but by no means least, Laura and the team at the Monarch Beach Resort, love love working with you all and have done so for the past 15 years, its an honor to share with you seeing couples dream weddings become a reality

d20c0597 d20c0606

When you drop the guest list a bit, you can get really creative with this space.  I really love the touches that have been added since the re-invention of this wonderful resort (formerly the St Regis)

d20c0609 d20c0630

We do love us a hanging cake.  I did the first one here at Club 19 and love it when my couples want to have one too.

d20c0655 img_0779

This couple actually ‘tied the know’ during the ceremony, check my instagram out from Oct and you will see what I am talking about.

They are back in Texas now but I know that over xmas tables and new year celebrations, their family and friends are going to be talking about that awesome wedding they came to here in S CA.

Till next time

Monarch Beach Resort fab wedding

0716 0719

Ahhhhhhh, from the moment dad and bride came to meet with me I knew this was going to be a wonderful experience, I was so right.  We had their ceremony at a church in Laguna and then cocktails at the Sunset Terrace followed by dinner/dancing in the Monarch Ballroom at the Monarch Beach Resort/formerly the St Regis Monarch Beach

0722 0732

Whitney knew from moment one she wanted Nisie’s Enchanted Florist to be her gal, and of course everything was perfection.  Signature drink luge by Carving Ice, both their last names started with an M, so an M luge seemed perfect.

0734 0741

Glossy/seamless dancefloor with custom decal and acrylic chiavaris by TMMPRO as always

0762 1036

Seating chart display, and the beautiful/elegant candy table that had South African candies in honor of our groom and the contingent that came from South Africa.

Thanks to Larry Crandall for the beautiful photos above, Epod photobooth for always coming and doing your thing seamlessly, Dan/Plug Video, Design Visage for beautifying everyone as always-they all held up until the end of the event/so important, the band that keeps the dancefloor full and created some special moments by playing/singing some South African songs/Full Spectrum, love you guys!!! Luxe Linens for napkins/linens, and last but not least, my family/team at the Monarch Beach Resort, its been 15 years of pure joy working with you all   xoxoxoxo

Ritz-Carlton Laguna wedding

Ahhh lovely Jenn, she knew what she liked and didn’t, so making decisions was quick and we pulled together the perfect vendor team/vision for her, and a reflection of her. Pretty, soft, romantic.

jtn_082016_barnetphotography_0476  jtn_082016_barnetphotography_0733

Thanks to Barnett Photography for the pics and being so great to work with, Parallel Media/video-we had quite a run for a few weeks together, Father Brian for always officiating a great ceremony, Design Visage for beautifying everyone and as always keeping things on time/perfect and everyone always looks as good at the end which is so important, OCAVS for the perfect shade of lighting, Flowers by Cina for bringing Jenn and my vision to reality xoxoxox, Naples Strings for ceremony and cocktails, Peter/Vive Ent for as always being the epitomy of the perfect dj for many reasons, Luxe Linens for the dining linens/napkins, Wildflower Linens for the overlays, TMMPRO for the beautiful dancefloor and chivaris, and as a surprise to the groom, these cigar guys on the balcony, he loved it!!

And of course, without our ladies and gentlemen and that beautiful Ritz-Carlton Laguna the end result would not be as fabulous!!! xoxoxo

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.
