Indian Wedding, Temple ceremony & Hotel Reception

So we had Jas and Lucky’s wedding in two locations over two days.  Teri was actually going to do both days as I was in Australia, but as fate steps in my return flight got changed on me bringing me home a day early, so I was able to jump in and be there on the Temple Ceremony day. Jas came in on a horse for the baraat and they exited the day in a  helicopter, inbetween lunch was served in the tent that was put up.

The next day their wedding reception was at the Bayfront Hilton in San Diego, we have done a few Indian weddings here now, as they have a great infrastructure, plenty of banquet space and different areas so for multi day and events the guests get to experience different views/atmospheres, and lots of hotel rooms so that means they are more willing to give great room rates for the guests staying.

Our groom was really into the design/look of the ballroom, the variety of centerpieces and table looks.  Our friends at Square Root did an awesome job with the ballroom, floral/linens/dancefloor/decal, and TMMPRO draped the room and provided the chivaris and we had Chivari Chair Rentals come and cover the seat cushions as we wanted silver not the normal white or ivory.  We had our friend Sandeep both days handling the music, we love him.  As you can tell by the photos we were working both days with our good friend and awesome photographer Frank Salas, Robles Video who has created a real niche in the Indian market were up bright and early both days (Friday was around 3am!!).  Dolled up by Lulu did the beautification both days of the ladies.  The team at Hilton Bayfront headed by Lisa Gossman were fabulous as always.

We bought Karla from Elegant by Design in for the Friday event at the Temple, she created the focal wall/picture backdrop area and had to redo the dining table two times when we changed the linens from breakfast to lunch, go EBD

Till next week

Park Hyatt Aviara

Funny how things work out.  Zula is best friends with a bride whose wedding I did five years ago.  Earlier in the year I got a message from my past bride saying her best friend is getting married and she has given her my number.  Never heard a word!  Then about 8 weeks before the wedding date I got a call from the photographer who had also done that past wedding, asking if I was available on the date (which was strange as I was available, I had met with a bride I thought would move forward with me and she didn’t, another fate intervention, I was not supposed to get it as I was supposed to do Zula!!), she was not booked for it either but felt she would be and wanted to give my name to the bride, as she thought she had someone helping her pull everything together, but it just wasn’t happening.  Well within 48 hours we were off and running and the bride was thrilled with how much we suddenly had done/she could relax knowing we were going in the right direction.

Our groom loves golf and they actually live down the road from their venue, so the ceremony was done with a golf green backdrop.  Cocktails were done by the putting green and guests could putter during cocktails, the guys loved it.

We ended up in a different ballroom to the one they originally booked, it would have been too small and not as elegant, and we ended up with a great outdoor area for relaxing after dinner with the new room

Another beautiful seamless/glossy dancefloor and logo by my fave vendor TMMPRO, he also did the chairs and lighting for me, love Jack and his guys.  The late night snack was freshly made warm cookies, just add icecream!!

A good close up of the linen from La Tavola on the cake table and the placecard table.

A custom Step N Repeat was in the foyer and after guests got their placecards they stopped and had their photo taken infront of it.  It was a popular place later for selfies I noticed.

In keeping with the golf theme, our martini luge was a golf ball on a tee!! Another great job by Carving Ice.  Next to that is our lovely royal table for the B& and their bridal party.  Nothing like a lovely florally/candle covered style dining table

It was great working with Irmina Photo again, been a couple of years as she had a baby and took some time, but she is baaaaack. Brandon Video did their thing and were lovely and low maintenance (they were a gift to the bride from my past bride), Father Don from Good Shepherd did a wonderful Catholic style ceremony.  We were going with strings for ceremony and cocktails but then I was at an event and a really cute girl was playing guitar and singing and I just knew she was right for Zula, and she was, so ceremony and cocktails were covered by her.  Their friend Vic who is a broadcaster and dj, came in from Florida and did a great job mceeing and playing music to keep the dancefloor full.  Our chargers and outdoor benches came from Monico Décor, florals were by Bella Florina, a florist that Zula knew/found.  And last but not least the team at Park Hyatt were fabulous and the grounds/hotel just made you feel like you were out of the hustle/bustle.  Looking very forward to my next one there early 2017.

Till next time

San Diego Wedding Celebration

If you are considering San Diego for your wedding in the year of 2014 and would like an ocean backdrop, then the San Diego Hilton Waterfront has a deal for you.

As long as your wedding is booked from now on and happens prior to the end of this year their ceremony site fees have been reduced and their wedding packages for both lunch and dinner events are a great deal at $79 and $99 per person to start.

The ceremony sites have the San Diego harbor as your backdrop, and the inside of the hotel is very contemporary/bright/hip type feeling. I did a large Indian wedding at this hotel a year ago (where we also had most of the hotel’s hotel rooms) and the staff were excellent, and the guests had a great stay and the wedding celebration day went fabulously.

Let me help you have a fabulous wedding at this great location.

Till next time
Lisa

Coronado Island Marriott Resort & Spa

I was invited to experience some of the food and views of the above resort this week, so headed on down.  The food was excellent, my favorite – bubbly was ever present, but what really made the drive worth while (not that an 1 1/2 hours is really considered a drive here in S CA) is sitting on the lounge furniture looking across the harbor to downtown San Diego.  We enjoyed that view in the daylight, then the dusk, and then the night view with all the buildings lit up, a beautiful cityscape.

You get married on a lovely lawn with the harbor and city skyline as your backdrop, cocktails with the same view, then depending on your choice or group size, can go to a smaller banquet area with a lake/pond outlook where everyone dines on the patio and then dancing is done inside a room that opens to that patio, so if some guest don’t want to leave but don’t want to dance, they don’t have to.  Or you can go to the large ballroom that can accommodate up to 400 with a large foyer with really unusual windows that open up giving a real inside/outside feel, can feel the ocean breeze etc, or your guests walk along the shoreline to an area that you have put a canopy up on with chandeliers hanging from the center and if needed, have the see through sides up or down as needed during the event.  Fabulous.

For any celebrations large or small from out of state/country, this is a great location, very memorable, and for SD locals or couples from Orange or LA counties your guests can drive home if they want, but why would you, this is a perfect op for an overnighter making a local wedding feel like a destination wedding without the expense of major travel, and yet you feel like you are a million miles away from home and get to go home refreshed and with great memories of a wonderful celebration.

Really nice team of folks at the resort also.

If you are interested in finding out more about having a wedding here, or how I can help you/be a part of your wedding celebration at this resort, give me a call or an email.

Till next time
