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

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.

Another lovely Indian Wedding Celebration

I was so looking forward to Shivali and Ankur’s two day celebration at the Ritz-Carlton, Dana Point.

We had started at the beginning with the budgetting and vision, gone through the vendor selections together, put all the details of the two days down in the detailed timeline/script, had a great tasting/floral sample/linens-chair selection day, and then just had to wait to see it all come together.

Two different looks, but the same soft feel both days, very reflective of lovely Shivali.  Friday’s Sangeet had a soft blue look by having Nisie’s Enchanted Florist do boxed florals in blues and whites, we used the hotels blue banquet chairs and soft blue water glasses, put some soft blue uplights around the room, and voila what a soft/relaxing/calm feel we gave the room, which worked so well when the guests arrived in all their vibrant colors and were there to party.  The theme/feel was not competing, it was the backdrop.  A lot of fun was had by all, Shivali had told me it would be all over by 11pm, but it was around 12;15am when I managed to get bride and groom to leave and around 12:40am when a bunch of the guests left.  Who can blame them, cocktails and dinner on a beautiful lawn looking out to the beautiful Pacific ocean, watching the sunset, then coming in to party, and it was so pleasant outside that even at midnight people were outside enjoying the balmy night.

Then the main event, lovely apricot/salmon colors, beautiful ocean backdrop, our groom coming in on the horse and really enjoying himself, I gave them 30 mins to bring him in over only a few hundred yards, and boy did they milk it and have fun.  Beautiful ceremony done by my favorite Indian officant/priest – he explains/talks through the ceremony so well.  Everyone had lunch, lots of great sandwiches, hot and cold, vege and meat.  Then rest/relaxing, until the evening event.  I was thinking the night may end before 1am due to the prior night, but no such thing, 1:45am was when the last guest left.  As you can see with such a beautiful ballroom and cocktail area to hang out in, why would you leave too.

You may have noticed, on each side of the dancefloor was a big X table with seating for around 30 guests.  From our first meeting Shivali had shown me her inspiration picture with a table like that, she loved it.  So of course we made sure that was incorporated into her celebration and they did look fabulous.

Tx to the great vendor team who worked with us to create this wonderful celebration setting:  Amber Event Productions/Lighting (I have worked with Amber and her team a few times now, she is lovely and they do a great job), Nisie’s Enchanted Florist, Fusion for the linens, Classic Party Rentals for the chivaris, and of course the awesome team at the Ritz Carlton and especially Holly from the catering office and Mike and the banquet team hands on in the ballroom.

I got two really lovely emails from my bride and groom the day after and another the following day, thanking me.  They are sunning themselves in the South Pacific about now and I know they will be having a fabulous time.  It was my honor and pleasure to go through the process with them and end up with such a beautiful, fabulous celebration, they and their guests will remember and talk about for a long long time.

Till next time

Hyatt Regency Newport Beach – Terrace Ballroom

Well it is so nice when you see a hotel that used to be the grande dame of weddings, get a redo in the lobby/public areas, and a new sales team that like weddings, and suddenly we find ourselves back here again, orchestrating celebrations that are looking for a boutique feel property that is in the middle of the fabulous OC/Newport Beach area.  We found ourselves in the  Terrace Ballroom room several times this season (very unique room as it is round so very fun to center everything), and below you will see just a few I picked to showcase, because they are all so different.  The big benefit to a smaller  property is the flexibility of the areas of the hotel, with all the weddings we did there, 2 different ceremony sites were used and 3 different cocktail areas, all with this one room.  Welcome to Eddie who is going to be the wedding king for 2012 I believe. We look forward to seeing a lot more of him and the great team there !!

The pictures below are courtesy of Larry Crandall  www.crandallphoto.com  Such a lovely, gentle man.  He loves getting artistic with your pics for the album if you are game.  With the wedding below Kimberly & I started the planning from the get go, always planning the ceremony undercover and knowing what colors she wanted, and she stayed true to that vision/feel throughout the process:

The fabulous florals were of course Nisies Enchanted Florist, linens&chairs by Fusion, all music from  cere thru cocktails-dinner-dancing was Al of Alvarron Ent-perfect for this intimate/relaxed group, hair and makeup by Design Visage-always have everyone on time and the hair and makeup looks good until bride is off to bed!!  Custom favors/packaging by Luisa Chocolatiere-that was a fun tasting!! And another lovely ceremony with Paul Uhlar.

The photo below is courtesy of Bob Ortiz www.bobortiz.com   Bob has been a wedding photographer in the OC for many years, and I am sure, like me, he is pleased to see Hyatt NB back on the radar.  With the wedding below mom and the bride and I started from budget on.  The brides vision was always to have manzanettas for the centerpieces, mom not so keen, but by adding floral buds to the manzanettas we were able to soften the look and come to a compromise and everyone was thrilled with the end result.  As I was already booked for another wedding on this date, Julie booked our services for me to take them through the planning process/pull everything together, and then have  my Peni orchestrate the actual wedding day itself, and as always a great job by Peni.  Always hard for me, I get so invested in the visual and the details I miss not being there to see the end result, but I kept in touch with Peni so I knew how everyone was doing/how it all looked and how the celebration was going.

Till next time
