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

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

Beautiful couple and beautiful Ritz wedding

Working with Erika and David over the past year was just a joy.  Very busy couple with kids going here and there and travelling and busy with work, so sometimes wedding planning halted and then we would get going again.  That is the beauty of how I work, I could pull your wedding together in a week, but for most brides that would freak them out, so anytime longer than that means you can halt anytime you want/need to  and there is no panic/pressure from me!!!

Erika had inspiration pics that she pretty much stuck to through the process and they were very much a reflection of her, soft, lovely and in love with love

All the tables had these lovely floorlength linen overlays and we did not use the Ritz baseplates (2 to choose from) this year my brides are loving these new chargers I get through one of my vendors.

The furniture setting on the balcony was actually copied from a wedding they had gone to, but we added florals to the wrought iron and Erika provided the rug which means when she sees it at home it will remind her of her wedding, love that

In 16 years of doing weddings in the Plaza Room no one ever brought up the idea of draping the whole room, but over the years I had brides who wanted to cover paintings in there so we had been creative with draping particular areas, placing trees and placing something on the mantle to cover the fireplace picture, but draping the whole room, hmmmmm. So when Erika said lets do it, I was excited to see the outcome, and it was

l

beautiful, and now all my brides are doing it.  It totally transforms the room and makes it soft and romantic and elegant, intimate and I think it makes the room feel a bit bigger.

 

We had an awesome candy table setup in the foyer during dinner and guests made to go bags or grabbed some to eat later in the evening when they felt the need.

 

I love it when a bride lets me guide them to the perfect team for them for their vision/style and budget, and when I say budget, anytime you look at the pics from my couples weddings, whatever you think they may have spent, in reality they probably spent less because I know the right people out there.  Our awesome vendor team on this wedding was: Frank Salas for the pics above and some were mine, Design Visage for the beautifying of all the ladies, Elegant by Design/florals, Chiavari chair rentals, TMMPRO, The Sugar Philosophers, Peter/Vive Ent, Naples Strings, White Flite Dove Release, and my fave Rabbi, Rabbi Ian!! And of course the wonderful ladies and gentlemen at the Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel xooxoxo

Till next time

Park Hyatt Aviara wedding

So pleased I got my pals at Square Root to come on board with this one, vendor relationships are so important and that can not be forgotton or misunderstood.  I knew they were the only vendor that could pull off the vision and do it for the budget we had which was not grand.

A very modern look and lots of detail

 

Sorry for the loopy pics, but they were taken by me as I didn’t want to wait for the photographers, lol

When I first mentioned ice martini luge it was okayed, but it turned out even more fabulous than I was expecting it to be, thanks to my friends over at Carving Ice, guests loved it and had their pics taken with it, which happens a lot, and then there was the hanging cake…….. I have never seen an executive pastry chef at a hotel put so much heart and pride into a cake, and the hotel was quite excited, it was their first hanging cake, love to be a first anywhere, lol!!

On the floral sample meeting day which was done through facetime as our bride could not be in town, I started thinking about the placecard table and where we would have had a great display I got a little crazy and it turned out fabulous, thank goodness our B&G went along with a lot of my inspirations or sudden thoughts on what we could do here and there, and even better, later that night the placecard table turned into our fabulous candy station for guests to take on their way out.  The Sugar Philosophers did an awesome job and also provided all the custom signs/water bottles and bags (the bags also got used for the donut station which was making lovely hot donuts right there!!)

 

Draping, dancefloor and decal (which was their initials quite large in gold), lighting, plus the chiavaris we used at the ceremony site were all done by TMMPRO, love working with Jack and his team xoxoxo

You may have noticed, different table shapes and chairs, the family and bridal party tables were white and gold curved tables and had florals above and on the table along with hanging orbs with flowers in them and we got lovely white and gold chairs to go with that look.  For the round tables, a variety of centerpieces but all complimenting each other and beautiful white linens along with the hottest wedding rental chair right now which we got through Chiavari Chair Rentals/Steven and he also had a fabulous new charger that we used and I have used a couple of times since now also, its so pretty.

Lots of special components involved, we had strings for the cere, but not a normal quartet I had to do quite a bit of hunting and found a trio that could get an electric violinist to play with them, and it was fabulous.  We had Peter/Vive ent as our dj mcee (and he kept the dancefloor full to where we extended for nearly 2 hours, and it was daylight saving night so when we ended and got in our cars it was saying 3am instead of 2am, lol, but there were some relatives of the groom’s that have a band in Nashville and the groom really wanted them to play a bit, they obliged, groom told me they were good, but they were really good, kind of In sinc style and songs, soooo good, they did the first dance song, mother/son song and also a dedication to the B&G where everyone just sat in their chairs and watched/listened, a really nice touch, kudos to The Katina’s.

Design Visage did the prettying up (not that these girls needed a bit of it) and we kept one of the artists on through the end of the main events for touchups, which is always nice if there is going to be a gown change or you just want to change to a more party style look than wedding style with your hair and or makeup.

Frank Salas has got a new venture in addition to his photography, a photobooth which is hooked up to all social media etc, as he was not booked for photography on this night he was very kind and came and operated the booth which had an awesome backdrop that our bride was really into, hedging with a neon sign, and we had a beautiful sitting area which we ended up moving to the side because it was taking up room and too many people wanted to have group shots infront of the cool backdrop, but never fear, it was used by folks to sit in while waiting for their turn!!  Waste not I say.

You can check Hoo Films out, google them, they did a great video overview of this day/event which turned out great.

Thanks to the fab folks at Park Hyatt Aviara, they rolled with the weird situations we had due to careers getting in the way of wedding planning (lol) and went over and above in absolutely every aspect of this event.  Looking very forward to my next one there.

Till next time

Island Hotel fabulous ceremony & reception – Newport Beach

For nearly a year I had the pleasure of helping Danielle and her mom (her stepmom really but you would not know it, what a wonderful relationship they have and even dad made mention of it during his toast) and Dad pull together what I had no doubt was going to be a beautiful and fun celebration.

I had done wedding ceremonies at Island Hotel at their old ceremony area which is no longer there,  but not done any at their only outdoor area for ceremonies the Cabana Patio, so this was my first and it turned out beautifully.

The cake picture does not do it any justice, but that cake was beautiful, the pastry chef at Island Hotel really puts his heart into every cake, love him.

From the beginning the colors were black and white and we went all the way, black linens/napkins (from Luxe Linens), chairs and dancefloor and with the off white draping we added around the room (by TMMPRO who also did the lighting, we stuck with amber to allow the candle light from the tables to stand out more) the florals were able to stand out.  Beautiful job with the ceremony floral, draping and chandeliers by Flowers by Cina and in the ballroom too, lots of glass and candles, it was fabulous.

The pics above and below are a mix of mine and Jacqueline Kay Photography, love working with them.  Thanks to Design Visage for keeping everyone on time, unlike a couple of weddings I did after this one who did not use them and put everything behind so brides ended up with very little of the photography they may have gone in hoping to get.  We had Naples Strings for the ceremony and they moved to cocktails, so easy to work with, and to the team at Island with Deanna at the helm, we are lucky enough right now to be there once a month, and love being there, the banquet captains are fab and the hotel has such a great feel and because they don’t have a lot of ballroom space its like being at an exclusive/one wedding a day only venue/hotel, but not paying for it.

Wayne Foster Band did the mceeing and music, I LOED their grand piano that they brought in and put on the stage which is a feat in itself, not many bands do that, but let me add that it was covered in crystals, beautiful.

Then my new fave vendor from 2016, The Sugar Philosophers, Kim does a beautiful job, very elegant displays, our bride wanted this one colorful and it was.  This table was the placecard table earlier, I love reusing that table.

Till next time

Langham Pasadena wedding

image001

A November wedding which always had the ceremony planned for indoors, even though the weather was beautiful we still did the ceremony indoors and it really turned out beautiful.

Yes lighting is everything, especially uplights on a Chuppah.

Miri our bride had great vision and knew exactly how she wanted things to be and it turned out beautifully.  Great working with Butterfly Floral, TMMPRO for the lighting and seamless glossy dancefloor, and the team at Langham, some I have known and some I know now!!   This was the first of a brother and sister that were getting married within a month of each other.  Second one coming on the blog soon

Till next time

Sweet Hyatt HB wedding

101516_0673 101516_0678

They were such a sweet sweet couple, and the colors/look/feel shown in the pictures is a good reflection of how our bride is.  During the planning process she found out she was pregnant, so there were some meetings where the poor thing was not well at all.  I actually had quite a few pregnancies last year, some already pregnant when they booked me and we pulled everything together in a few weeks, and two who found out during the planning and we just kept going, the gowns needed a bit more adjusting than normal closer to the wedding day though!!

101516_0683 101516_0684

I love a textured floral look and with these colors it is just so pretty

101516_0708 101516_1282

I worked with our bride and groom during the planning months, doing the budget, securing vendors to match the budget/vision/style and keeping them on track with what needed to be done along the way, then Nicole took over on the day itself and kept everything going to plan and on track, which resulted in a wonderful celebration.

101516_1286 101516_1294

The draping is a good way to hide the airwall track going right down the center of the room.

101516_1312

Lovely vendor team on board, Miki and Sonja/photographers-thanks for the photos, Parallel Media/video, Brent Edwards/officiant for working so well with them, TMMPRO for the dancefloor/lighting and draping.  Sweet Traders for the yum wedding cake, Pennys Florals, and all music was by DJ David, and of course to our friends at the Hyatt Huntington Beach-we love working with you all to ensure great wedding celebrations.

Till next time

Hyatt Huntington Beach wedding

img_0572 img_0573 img_0575 img_0576

From our first planning meeting I could see it all, and on the wedding day and the great vendor team we pulled together, it all came together.  Lovely thick aisle pattern and beautiful florals/color palette from EBD Florals/Karla, xoxoxoxo

img_0579

Love my seamless/glossy white dancefloor, that along with the draping behind the sheart table to hide the airwall track and the acrylic chiavaris came from TMMPRO, my new fave vendor from 2015.

img_0583   img_0588

I don’t see too many light gobos on the dancefloor now, but our bride preferred that to a

decal, and it turned out soft and pretty. You can see from the pics taken at different times the changes the lighting made

img_0591 img_0598 img_0602 img_0604 img_0607  img_4002

I asked EBD Floral to do a thick lush floral topper on the table and the bride had a picture showing flowers on a slope look/feel, it turned out beautifully. The cake was from Sweet Traders and DJ Jonsen did a great job, our second time working with him.  And as always, to the team at Hyatt HB, we have been doing weddings there for 15 years/from when the hotel opened its doors, its like being home when we are there xoxoxoxo

Till next time

Ritz-Carlton Laguna/Pavilion Ballroom

img_0712

A very busy bride and a lovely mom and I had a great journey which ended up with a really fabulous celebration.  Tiffany had an inspiration picture with the floral runner/candles inset which she loved, so of course we always knew we would have rectangle tables to be able to use that design on.  Along the way we created the perfect vendor team for them and the vision went from one picture to many other elements that created her custom wedding.

img_0715 img_0718

Of course the seamless dancefloor and decal were from my new fave vendor of 2015 TMMPRO, along with the boxed florals infront of the stage which became a big had to have in 2015, doesn’t it all look fabulous!!  The luge for the signature drink was by fabulous Mark of Icebulb.

img_0720 img_0740

The use of benches on the balcony gives a lot more seating if wanting to add a furniture area along with the regular tall and low cocktail tables, and Tiffany wanted a firepit from tthe beginning so of course there it was on the night

munyon_0913 munyon_0920

Pre cocktail pic of the view from the balcony and why so many local and destination wedding couples choose this hotel and space to celebrate at.  Don’t you love the placecard table display, so fluffy, thanks to the hydrangea table top cover.

munyon_1112 munyon_1114 munyon_1118  munyon_1129

Carrying on the hydrangea runner look/feel to the headtable and these pics showcase the beautiful Luxe Linen that was usd on the headtable and the rectangle tables in the room

munyon_1136 munyon_1138 munyon_1140 munyon_1145   munyon_1154

3 different Luxe Linens were used throughout the room, lots of texture/looks, love it.

munyon_1182

Great vendor team on board for this wedding.  Frank Salas/photographer-thanks as always for being such a great team player, Elegant by Design for bringing our beginning design thoughts through to reality as always, Lake Forest limousines for the Packard and limos used to get everyone from the hotel to the church to the hotel, and of course, to our fabulous team/family at the Ritz-Carlton-we love you soooooo much!!!!  And to the best band ever – well that is what all my couples say during and after their weddings, Full Spectrum Music/Adam Jackson, mom and bride took forever to book them even though I kept saying I would not steer you wrong, on the night mom comes over to me and says, Lisa this band is sooo good, guests keep coming up and telling me the best wedding band they have ever heard, why don’t everyone just book them immediately!!  I said to her, tell me about it, lol

Till next time

Monarch Beach Resort fab wedding

463p0066 d20c0589

Oh how I enjoyed working with these two.  A surgeon and a designer, great style and taste.

We pulled together the perfect vendor team for them, Frank Salas/photo (thanks for the photos here), Elegant by Design floral/Karla and her awesome team, Albert/dj, linens by Luxe and the blue by Wildflower – actually custom made for them as it was a certain shade of blue they wanted, TMMPRO for the acrylic chivaris, and to Classic Party Rentals for the china used for the fabulous luncheon the guests got to enjoy, and last but by no means least, Laura and the team at the Monarch Beach Resort, love love working with you all and have done so for the past 15 years, its an honor to share with you seeing couples dream weddings become a reality

d20c0597 d20c0606

When you drop the guest list a bit, you can get really creative with this space.  I really love the touches that have been added since the re-invention of this wonderful resort (formerly the St Regis)

d20c0609 d20c0630

We do love us a hanging cake.  I did the first one here at Club 19 and love it when my couples want to have one too.

d20c0655 img_0779

This couple actually ‘tied the know’ during the ceremony, check my instagram out from Oct and you will see what I am talking about.

They are back in Texas now but I know that over xmas tables and new year celebrations, their family and friends are going to be talking about that awesome wedding they came to here in S CA.

Till next time
