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

Balboa Bay Resort Wedding

I don’t often post pics of the bridal bouquet but this one was colorful and so different to most I see, I couldn’t help myself.  Beautiful florals by Flowers by Cina xoxox

So gardeny, Soy’s vision brought to life!!

I love a glass base to a cake and florals amass under

Floral reuse – from the arch to the sweetheart table, works fabulously right?? The cake design was very special, Suzanne took their invite and put key elements on to the cake and if you look carefully you will see a 3rd wee item which is for their wee boy! So sweet.

Yes we did, As a nod to their culture plus she liked the idea, a RED dancefloor!!  Looked awesome later when she had her red dress on.

the tiffany blue was her pop, cake and napkins.  A pretty view from the sheart table

Pics above are all mine so sorry for them not being the best.

Till next time

Another fabulous Island Hotel wedding

I loved these two, we spent many months planning and had a couple of meetings that turned into dinner and ‘date’ night, lol.  Tammy always knew the look/feel she wanted and it all turned out beautifully.  In fact when I did room view with her, she cried before she even saw it, she was so excited.

   

These two pics depict the beginning of the event, and how it ended!! lol  they were the only people left in the ballroom with me, they were tired but Miss Tammy did not want it to end so she lay down in a form of protest that if she was lying down she wouldn’t have to leave, our groom went down too, and they wanted me to but I said I had to take the picture, lol.  Love them xoxoxoxox

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

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

Pelican Hill Resort

Well I had the pleasure of working with George (has now moved on to do great things with a property in LA), Fran, and the team at Pelican (have known them all for years as they all came from the south county hotels I am fortunate to be at a lot) again, for another celebration early in the year.

This couple came to me closer to the wedding date with all their vendors in place, the vision and most of the details handled.  My job was to ensure they had crossed their ts and dotted their i, and run the rehearsal and wedding day for them so they could relax and enjoy the fruits of their planning.

Thanks to Irmina for the photos.  Sometimes I find a gem of a vendor through a bride, and this is one of those occasions.  Irmina was 8 months pregnant, but came and ran around from location to location, kicking off her shoes to take photos from various perches during the night, and was just soooo nice, that I have referred her ever since, and look forward to working with her everytime.  Her passion and enthusiasm is contagious.

Till next time
