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

A May wedding for May

What a joy/pleasure May was to work with on planning her wedding.  I am so lucky I really do have lovely brides, grooms, couples.

The Pavilion ballroom at the Ritz-Carlton Laguna offers such a beautiful backdrop during cocktails and later throughout the evening.  These 2 pics I took were at sunset time, another beautiful  S CA sunset.

4snapz photobooth knew she liked Disney and brought them these ears to wear/keep, that was so lovely.  My vendors really do put 300% into what they do as well as love.  My 2nd red dancefloor in 2 months, looked awesome when May had her red dress on.  Did you also notice the red rose petals in the ice luge??

We pulled together a really lovely vendor team for this lovely couple – Alvarron Ent/dj-Al, Tony Florez photog (some of his and some of mine above), The Emotion Picture Studio/video-Marc, Joyce Luck for making the girls look  lovely, Carving Ice for the luge, TMMPRO for the red dancefoor/chiavaris/lighting, Flowers Etc/Debby for being so easy/nice to work with and Lake Forest Limos for getting everyone to the church and back from the church, and of course to our family at the Ritz-Carlton Laguna. xoxoxo

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.

Plaza Room, Ritz-Carlton, Dana Point

Another location/room that I am fortunate to be known as the co-ordinator that does the most weddings in/at.
For the past 12 years I have done groups of as few as 15 and maxing the Plaza room with 74, all different looks/styles/visions
/feel, but the constant that ties everyone together is the backdrop for the ceremony and cocktails, that beautiful Pacific ocean – whether it is a grey day, sunny day, ocean is smooth or rough, it is always a stunning backdrop. Then into the Plaza Room everyone goes and it feels like someones beautiful dining room, fireplace/chandelier, not stuffy/formal, just warm and intimate, and …….. access to the balcony to keep popping out and looking at that view.

With Robin’s wedding, we had a merging of families and an intimate group invited and she wanted to have everyone feel important to them, so I reverted to a table style I have done a few times in the Plaza, the U-shape with people on each side all the way around, so everyone is at the same table. I think you will agree it looks romantic, elegant, and special. We had a pianist provide the dinner/socialising music in Plaza Room using the hotels grand piano and that completed the atmosphere of romance/elegance/special. A really lovely celebration.



Robin, used all my vendor suggestions but had her own florist and he did a really lovely job and was very nice to work with. Thanks to Karen French for as always being a pleasure to refer to my brides and to work with on the day, and for the pics above. Of course, the wonderful team at the Ritz-Carlton upstairs and downstairs, who are a joy to work with and give each wedding the service/attention on the day that you would expect/deserve at a five star/five diamond property.

Till next time
