Ritz-Carlton Laguna Wedding

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

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.

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).

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

Pavilion Ballroom, Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel

When you are just not able to keep your guest count to under 74 then the next best celebration space at the Ritz Laguna is the Pavilion ballroom.  With this room you get married on the gazebo lawn with full ocean backdrop then then guests enjoy cocktails on the balcony that runs along the room with full Pacific Ocean views, and then enjoy access to the room/balcony through the 5 sets of french doors.  Due to the low ceilings and chandeliers it has elegance yet intimacy also.

Amanda had booked me for a month of service I believe, this is one of the services for brides that feel they will have or are excited to pull the vendor team/handle the budget/vision etc together themselves.  As happens, sometimes life and work get in the way and it just doesn’t happen.  I am always available to be upgraded in service level, as you have me for your date anyway.  So I get a call from Amanda a couple months into their planning, it just wasn’t happening, they need to upgrade, so we moved them up to the starts immediately service Prep/planning, where the first thing we do is budget (which gives us direction for vendors/style etc) and got her working on the tasks/decisions/things that needed to be worked on and I kept her on track with those for the next six months.  Amanda and her mom were just a pleasure to work with, and with style being both their middle names the end result was perfect (including the color co-ordinated/feel candy station by Candee by  Sandee).  From our first meeting with Nisie of Enchanted Florist where the colors/feel were solidified, to our linen/chair selection meeting (always fun in the Fusion showroom to play) and then the tasting at the hotel where we confirmed the food/beverage selections, we had a great time pulling it all together. Another successful mcee/djing gig by Peter/Vive Entertainment, and another ceremony with Paul Uhlar (great voice and service) think we are around 2000 together as of now.  Thanks Amanda for the photos below for me to show just a bit of what our teamwork/planning resulted in on the day.

Till next time (and there are more Pavilion & Plaza Room pics coming in the next few blogs)
