Ritz Laguna wedding celebration

Aaaah, what can i say about Lonnie and Tony.  A love story.  Second time for each of them, in their 50s, not looking or didn’t think they would, but they found love again.  Lonnie was just lovely and Tony was a romantic, he and i planned a surprise during the wedding where he and his guys sang and danced for her, it was fabulouso!!

We incorporated elements to make it as romantic and warm, as Lonnie wanted it to be, Doves that they released at the end of the ceremony, an ivory dancefloor rather than stark white, cushions on the benches on the balcony that went with her color scheme and gold accents to keep things warm too.

Another great vendor team, the Photographer Drew Dailey Images and dj Armando/DJ Shout were known to the couple and both did a great job, then my normal crew, EBD Floral, TMMPRO for the benches/dancefloor/lighting, Video by Shane Productions, String trio for cere/cocktails by Naples Strings/Elaine and doves via our lovely Pamla/White Flite, and as always, the wonderful ladies and gentlemen of the Ritz-Carlton Laguna xoxxo

till next time

Ritz Carlton Terrace Salon wedding

This lovely destination wedding for Carol and Tim was orchestrated on the day by Allison, who we have known for years and is new to our team as a Day of Co-Ordinator.

Thanks to Frank Salas for the photos.  Square Root did the florals, TMMPRO did the lighting/dancefloor and chivaris for cere & dining room.  They were an intimate group of 70 in this room that can do up to 150 at a squeeze, so plenty of room to spread out and have their band in there too.

And as always, thanks to our friends at Ritz-Carlton for teamwork makes the dream work. xoxox

Till next time

Ritz Laguna Plaza Room wedding

I had planned things with Yana and Leo for their end of year wedding at the Ritz-Carlton, this was their CA wedding and in being flexible and doing a thursday the week before xmas with their intimate group of 50, meant they could have it at a 5 star hotel with views and service to die for, because they had to watch their budget due to their wedding in Russia which was going to be huge a few weeks later (Yana is a bit of  a celebrity in Russia).

I was in Cabo looking at some of the best venues there for future weddings on their wedding date but Nicole was orchestrating/overseeing on the day with Darla’s assistance and they had a great vendor team, all of who know how Lisa likes things so I didn’t need to worry at all that it would not be a success, and of course it was, B&G were very happy.

Thanks to Joel Austell for the pics above, Shane Productions/video, EBD Floral as always for making things work out as our brides anticipate from the beginning, Rabbi Ian for as always doing a great Jewish ceremony and the Trotts who issued the CA marriage license at the hotel (they have done this for quite a few of our couples over the years and it’s starting to be more and more popular), Peter/Vive Entertainment for handling all the music and mceeing and keeping things on track with Nicole, and to everyone at the Ritz who again, helped us make a couple’s wedding dreams come true, thank you xoxo

Till next time

Ritz Laguna Wedding

This wedding just had a sweet story which is why I think from the hotel on, we all did what we could to make it happen.  The parents of the groom had been married at the Ritz Laguna 25 years ago, Bluff Lawn ceremony (at that time it was called Gazebo Lawn) and Pavilion Ballroom, well the B&G loved the Ritz and wanted to do the wedding there but budget was not allowing for the ‘normal’ wedding celebration, so…. they made adjustments, which is what everyone should do.

They did the wedding on a sunday morning, with a luncheon following.  No full bar, just champagne at cocktail time then wine with the meal.  Simple cere décor but it was very effective with that awesome backdrop, using centerpiece florals and then used everything the hotel provided in Pavilion Ballroom, no rentals, because in the daylight the view takes over anyway.  So same ceremony site/ballroom and date 25 years later for their son.  Pretty cool eh.  Thanks to EBD Floral for working with us to make it happen, Wendy/Orange County Harpist for the beautiful cere/cocktail music as always & Peter/Vive Entertainment for providing the music/mceeing in the ballroom, and to Dan and Tyler Photography for being so lovely to work with and for the pics above, and of course to the Ritz, for this one we definitely made a dream come true xoxoxo

Ritz-Carlton Laguna, Terrace Salon wdg

A fun wedding for Raquel and James with lots of suprises for the guests, from the drummers escorting the B&G in with the Brazilian Dancers and a 2nd performance by them later to the Enchanted Mirror Photobooth that opened on the balcony after dinner

Thanks to Tony Florez for the pics, Peter/Vive Entertainment for the music/mceeing & always happy to help the dance troupes out with their music/so patient! TMMPRO for the dancefloor+custom decal/lighting&dry ice for the 1st dance, and Events by Milan for the floral/décor & Amor table that everyone loved!

 

And always a huge thanks to our partners at Ritz-Carlton Laguna for always helping me to make wedding dreams come true xoxox

Ritz Carlton Laguna-Terrace Salon wdg

Well it was many years in the making but I got to help Tara make her wedding and wedding dreams come true.  They had looked at and started the process before but things happened and the brakes were put on, then Tara came to see me and we got things going.  I knew Square Root Floral Designs were the perfect match for her and you can see by these pics by her photographer she brought down from Canada/Karolina Turek, she was fun, at one point i saw her lying on the dancefloor on her side taking a pic of who knows what, but that is why she is the photographer and I am not, lol!!  Square Root also handled the bridal party table/chargers/linens/napkins+mirrors&seating, yay

Ceremony was held on Monarch Bay Sunset Lawn and then cocktails were on the lawn next to it, then after sunset we escorted everyone up to Terrace Salon.

Love having Wendy/Orange County Harpist doing weddings with us, adds romance in my mind, and at the end of the ceremony the B&G both held a white dove/White Flite and released them, now that’s romantic too, right??!!

Thanks to TMMPRO for my beloved round white dancefloor+custom decal, B&G sofa, lighting/chivaris/cake table, Hoo Films/video, Design Visage-hair/makeup, and the bride had seen and loved the Trip Band so they provided cocktail/dinner/dancing music.  Thanks as always to the ladies and gentlemen at the Ritz-Carlton Laguna xoxox

Beautiful Ritz Laguna Terrace Salon wdg

When i showed Rachel her ballroom she gasped.  I said ‘it’s like a beautiful garden’ and she said ‘that’s exactly what i wanted and i didn’t even realise it’  thanks to Square Root for nailing it.  Look at that ceremony setup, stunning.

  

We did a mixture of rectangle and round tables in Terrace Salon and tons of candles.

It was a beautiful destination wedding for sure!! Thanks to Brett Hickman for the pics, it had been a while since we had worked together, good to be back, Hoo Films Video, Design Visage for hair/makeup, not only did Square Root do the gorgeous florals but they also did the linens/dancefloor/stage covers/uplights and TMMPRO did the chiavaris and the band/sheart&cake lighting.  Downbeat LA provided strings for the cere/cocktails and kept the dancefloor going, they were excellent.  Thanks again to the ladies & gentlemen at the Ritz-Carlton Laguna, always a pleasure to work with you to create these memories.

Till next time

Another beautiful Plaza – Ritz Laguna wdg

 

Coco and Jacob, I and everyone that worked with them loved them.  Whatever she wanted he was going to make it happen.  She is a sweet English Rose that acts and is in entertainment and he an LA guy working in the entertainment industry, and they also just opened a lovely tea shop in LA

A ceremony backdrop hard to find anywhere and the same backdrop from the cocktail/Plaza Room balcony where I get to do my signature curved sofas there, because it makes sense, lol, and each bride customizes them with cushions they will use at home. Coco also ordered personalized napkins we used for dinner and gold flatware which they would be able to use after in their tea shop, smart girl!!

TMMPRO did the draping/dancefloor+decal/lighting&benches, EBD did the beautiful floral, Bishop Brian officiated a lovely catholic style service, Design Visage prettied up the ladies, not that Coco needed that, Naples Strings provided the ceremony&cocktail music and Angel from Elevated Pulse did an excellent job in the Plaza Room with mceeing and dinner then dancing music, and Luxe Linens provided the linens in the Plaza room.  We have Viral Booth OC open up after dinner in the foyer, and as always that was a huge hit.  Always lots of thanks to the Ritz Laguna team, together we make wedding dreams come true xoxoxo

Till next time
