Another intimate Ritz Laguna wedding

Tina and Steve picked the Monday of Thanksgiving week to have their intimate wedding so the families could also be together for Thanksgiving and make a vacation of it here in S CA.  Smart cookies.  Originally they had booked the Private Dining Room to have dinner after the ceremony, then as we got talking they realized they may want to dance/spend timing moving around and not stuck at a table, so we moved to the Plaza Room and balcony.

Tina loves blue and the ocean, so no flowers, it was about seafoam chiffon flowing in the wind like ocean waves coming onto the shore, and along the center of the table were containers that had candles/starfish/coral etc in them and we enhanced with blue uplights.

We added bistro lights and benches to the balcony of Plaza Room where the bar would stay and people spent the whole evening going in and out, hearing the waves crashing on the beach, feeling that wonderful fresh air.  As it gets darker that time of year, we did a mid afternoon ceremony and we were all done by 10pm, wow, home by 11pm to watch WWHL on a Monday after a wedding, i could do that every day of the week!!   Love it when i can keep my vendor peeps busy on a week day/night – thanks to Tony Florez photo, Paul Uhlar/officiating with that lovely voice of his, Design Visage for prettying the ladies up, Karens Flowers (no insta or website) and Jeff/Moondance Mobile music for the music/djing/mceeing as we needed it throughout the event, and TMMPRO for the rental chairs/lighting/benches, and of course to the ladies & gentlemen at the Ritz-Carlton for always helping us make intimate weddings feel just as important/special as big events.

Till next time

Plaza Room Ritz-Carlton Laguna Wedding

This was a lovely wedding reception to come back from New Zealand to do.  They got married at the Cathedral in San Juan Capistrano, it was a lovely intimate group and a really lovely elegant wedding celebration for Dina and Mina.  They were also fun, take a look at the cake topper, lol

Our ivory dancefloor/B&G sofa and chiavaris were through my rental partner for most of my weddings TMMPRO.

Till next time

Destination wedding Ritz Carlton Laguna

When Sydney booked us for her wedding we knew i was going to be out of the country on her day, so i worked with her on the planning and then on the day itself Nicole oversaw and orchestrated everything, perfectly as normal, but i was sad i was not there as i really enjoyed working with Sydney and i knew her wedding was going to be really lovely.

 

Sydney wanted everyone joined, so we did a double sided u shape with the dancefloor as the centerpiece and it worked beautifully

We had the best vendor team on board so i knew i had nothing to worry about while i was in Fiji relaxing, lol!!  Thanks to Frank for the good pics above, the others were Darla the assistant for Nicole on the day (sending me some so i could Instagram, lol), Kevin/Video-Luxury Lifestyle Studios, Design Visage for hair/makeup, Karens Flowers, Luxe Linens, Naples String trio for cere/cocktails and Peter/DJ-Vive Entertainment for dinner/dancing and mceeing, and as always, my man that helps me transform space TMMPRO for the benches/draping/lighting/dancefloor+decal+chiavaris, and of course, the ladies and gentlemen of the Ritz-Carlton that i know will work with Nicole to ensure all is perfect, so i can go on vacation, lol!!!

Till next time

Ritz-Carlton Laguna Monarch Bay/Plaza Room wedding

We love a Monday wedding, not only do we get to work on a day we normally would not be, but generally speaking, the wedding couple and guests feel like they are the only thing going on in the pm or at the hotel, it’s wonderful!!

Linda loved acrylic, so take a look, we had rental chairs one style for the ceremony and a different style in the Plaza Room, bravo Linda!!  They found their photographer Davello Photography and very nice he was, Grace Lin did the hair and makeup, always good to see her, EBD Floral did the beautiful florals/brought the vision to life as always, and… this was the first time i had done the ground sparkler cans which we used for their exit, it involved paying for a permit and a fireperson to be there to oversee, but the guests loved it.  Thanks to the Ritz-Carlton Laguna as always for everything xoxox

In case you are wondering about the bottom pic, well that is me with Jack who owns TMMPRO where i get my dancefloors/decals, chairs/B&G sofas, lighting, draping, mirror tables etc through and i normally don’t get to see him as he is a very successful dj in the Asian community and normally not available when i ask, but being a Monday, he was available and he did the rentals and all the music for me on this one, that was fun!!

Machelle ritz barnets and mine june 2018

You know i love an intimate wedding celebration, right??!!  Well i do, you may spend to have 30 guests as 70, but boy those guests get such a wonderful wedding celebration when it comes to venue and food experience, they will always refer back to your wedding!!  I suggested to Machelle that we do the ceremony seating in one row curved to the front which would make everyone feel wanted/inclusive, worked out great didn’t it!!

   

They sat at a guest table with guests, so we put them by the fireplace and spread everyone out amongst four tables, we could have done a royal table for all, but they preferred to do the groupings and it looked great.

We had an awesome vendor team on board for them, Barnet Photography (my pics are the bad ones above lol, video/Luxury Lifestyle Studio, Flawless Faces for hair/makeup, Peter/Vive Entertainment for all the music, and my good friends at Square Root for the floral and rentals.  Paul Uhlar did the ceremony with his wonderful calming voice and all the right words with the little bit of humor he does towards the end perfectly that breaks all the ice before the formal introduction.  And of course, our fab everyone at the Ritz-Carlton Laguna where we have been honored to do weddings for the past 19 years!!

Till next time

Beautiful Ritz Laguna wedding/beautiful bride

I have such fondness for lovely Jessica and her whole family.  We started the process of wedding planning and then she found out she was pregnant, so before we had the ‘pretty’ wedding they got married in an intimate wedding and then came baby Isabella, and now through instragram I get to see Isabella growing up (and sooooo fast and now a baby sister has been added to this cute family).  Isabella came to my office as a newby and we would put her carrier under my glass table so we could keep an eye on her sleeping while we worked above, then she started staying awake and Grandma would need to pick her up and keep her occupied, to them my turn at the floral mockup where i kept Bella occupied so our bride and mom could really focus on flowers, lol, and then she was a flower girl at the wedding.  Jessica and her mom were just the loveliest to work with and the wedding reflected the beauty and grace that is Jessica.

I got her vision right off the bat and knew exactly who could make her wedding dreams come true, so thanks to Melissa and the team at Flowers by Cina, TMMPRO for the rentals, and to Peter/Vive Ent who provided all the music we needed in all the areas, and of course to our family at the Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel xoxoxo

Till next time

Intimate Ritz-Carlton Laguna wedding

A little boho but oh so elegant.  Monarch Bay Sunset Terrace for the ceremony and the Plaza Room and Balcony for the dinner/dance.  Sarah Mack was our photographer, my 1st wedding with her and you will be seeing more coming up with her, but think this pics were from my phone, can’t be sure.  TMMPRO for the rentals along with Luxe Linens, and Design Visage prettied everyone up as always.  Always thanks to the ladies and gentlemen at the Ritz-Carlton Laguna for being perfect teammates.

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.

 

Another Sunset Terrace and Plaza beautiful intimate celebration, xoxoxox

Sometimes you don’t need rentals!

Sometimes the items the hotel provides work with a brides colors and feel, and this short blog is just to show how this one did.  For this wedding at Ritz-Carlton Laguna, the brides colors were blue and the feeling was oceany.  Could we have done rentals yes but the new carpet in her banquet room worked with the look/feel/colors and the hotels ivory linens/napkins, blue/green banquet chairs (which they preferred from a comfort level) and the RC charger with the blue worked perfectly, along with the blue water in all the vases and white florals done by Karen’s Flowers.  We added blue lighting to frame it all, and it really turned out very pretty.
