Last St Regis, Monarch Beach wedding

FullSizeRender

Here is the new Grand Lawn Ceremony site at the Monarch Beach Resort, formerly the St Regis Monarch Beach, and these pics are from a wedding that was planned for around 15 months and happened a few days before the name change.  So as things happen along the way, the vision our bride had for her ceremony changed with hotel changes and she didn’t end up with her final vision until a few days before, I think it looked lovely.  By taking away the rotunda somehow the ocean seems right there, and I now get more of a Caribbean backdrop feel, where the pool seems to end at the ocean.

0791 0794

Down at Club 19 we did a mix of round and rectangle tables.  This was a daytime wedding, so the colors really worked well and gave an elegant feel.  The ceiling treatment turned out perfect for Jennifer’s style, our original vision was about 15 chandeliers hanging in a variety of sizes and styles but that really was too shabby chic for her, and this more elegant ceiling was done by a vendor Jennifer found OCLA events, they really did a great job.

0797 0801

Jennifer and Brook lived out of town/northern CA but are fortunate that they come down often and always stay at the hotel, in fact their fave butler came down and sabred the champagne bottle for them prior to the toasts, so they were able to keep an eye on how the changes at the hotel were coming along.

These last two pics are mine.  The one above shows the chandeliers on, and the pic on the right show how huge the ceremony florals were that were repurposed to some of the dining tables.

Other members of this great vendor team were, Joe Latter photo/thanks for the pics above, Krieger Style dj (they had a guy they knew who was the dj, he let them down so they then spent time on a band that didn’t work out and ultimately ended up with my dj David,  the right guy, as always), Vantage Productions/Video, Elegant by Design/floral, Paul Uhlar/officiant, Wendy Smith/harpist,  Laura at the ST Regis and of course the setup/banquet team on the day.

Got lots of lovely weddings coming up this year, can’t wait to share them all with you.

2016 thank you’s already

We work for many months with so many of our brides and for some not so long, but either way when a thank you comes in after, it just reinforces why I love what I do and the couples I get to work with.  Here’s some from just the past few weeks……..

Thank you Lisa for all your help with our wedding on Friday! It was just perfect! With love, Mrs Lunzer

Hi Lisa, Thank you SO much for making last Friday run so smoothly.  You are amazing and I don’t think it would have turned out nearly so well without you and your wonderful vendors.  We have heard so many compliments and truly cherished every beautiful moment.  I will definitely pass on the word about your mad skills.  Love Annemarie

Thanks for everything. I think things turned out pretty good.  Thanks again for all of your help, we really appreciate it. David.

Note from Lisa: David and Jessica booked me for Month of service, when that service officially began David told me he wished they had of booked the next size up service as they spent so much time being frustrated, stressed and overwhelmed during the planning months, and he doesn’t know how I deal with vendors, they were driving him crazy!! lol

Then texts ….

Morning after  the wedding………….

Good morning Lisa! Thank you so much for all your hard work.  The day went by seamlessly and u did an amazing job!  Thank you, thank you, thank you.  Miriam

Another couple …  at 11:56pm, night of wedding…..

Thank you very much.  It turned out very well, better than we all expected. Brian

Then at 10:15am the morning after………

Morning, we are sooooo happy how everything turned out!!  Thank you so much! Brian

Then at 6:15pm the day after, from the bride

Lisa, thank you for everything that you did for us, you’re truly an amazing woman and we’re so happy to have had the opportunity to have you as our wedding planner and plan out our most important day ever!  Blessings to you and thank you once again, it was gorgeous.

Awwwwwwww, thank you my lovely couples, it was really my joy and pleasure.

But to top things off, vendor kudos from some I have never worked with before, really are the icing on the cake……….

One dj during the event commented on how nice is was to work with a co-ordinator that actually co-ordinates.  He said he feels that most of the newer/younger co-ordinators are in it for the picture of the ballroom rather than the co-ordinating part.  After the wedding he sent me this

Lisa, Thank you so much, how nice it was to work with a coordinator that has their S#!T together.  You were right on top of everything and made my job very easy.  Would be an honor to wok with you and your team again 🙂  Best,

Then another dj who I worked with for the first time, sent me some lovely flowers.

Not sure who has it right or wrong when it comes to what I do/what people think we should be doing, but I seem to be more on the right side it seems.

Later

Lovely Thank You

Its always so great to get a Thank you from a bride months after their wedding.  By that time I have thought they have moved on, I move on and then voila, I realize I have been on their mind, makes me feel so good

So I went to the PO Box looking for something specific and found this and it made my day.  It’s a handwritten card from a wedding we did in September, Teri actually ran the event on the day………………

Dear Lisa,

I have wanted to write you since the wedding, but the honeymoon, holidays, birthday, and even a car accident, got in the way.  You are among my big ‘thank yous’.  All of your hard work, effort, time, and sincere caring about the event made for a wonderful experience for Joe and I.  The day went exactly how we envisioned and it was so beautiful.  Everything co-ordinated so seamlessly and appeared effortless in the end.  Teri was wonderful at the function and I hardly knew she was there.  The suggestions for vendors were great, and we can honestly say we wouldn’t have done anything differently.

Lisa, thank you for making our day fantastic for us.  It truly was a gift.  You are very talented and we wish you the best.

Nancy and Joe

 

Till next time

Xmas cards

IMG_2737

I am so lucky that I get notes by email/in the mail from my brides/couples during the year, and comments on instagram pics which keeps me in touch with them, and gives me a chance to comment back.  But Xmas time is great as I hear from couples from years past and I get to get caught up on other news from couples/not wedding news.

The card above came from Brooke and Matt and I think we both knew we would have withdrawals after the wedding, we had such a great time pulling their wedding together for longer than a year.

From Steve and Margo, a 2014 wedding, I heard about their travels and new doggie child and how great they were both doing with their careers.

From Amita and Raja, think they were 2012 and I have seen them at other weddings since as she keeps referring me on, xoxox) their card was the face of their gorgeous wee boy and the announcement of a new baby girl coming, then a month later a card came with the picture of their sweet baby girl who came a bit early, so good on Amita for getting her xmas cards out early!!!

From Holly and Michael such a great card collage of great pics of them with their lovely Lola/doggie child.  When are the real children coming Miss Holly??? lol  You guys are going to be great parents.

I never heard from Kathy and Keith after their wedding which was Jan of 2015 but got a lovely xmas card with two beautiful pics from their wedding day showing what a beautiful day it was and how happy they were.  Made me happy to see.

And from the McGettigan’s whose wedding I did in 2014, last years card showed their wee boy and this year he is a toddler in full swing, and a note there is a brother coming for him!!  Love it

Unlike your photographer or video where you have to have contact after the wedding, when people take the time to make contact with me after, because there is no need, it makes me smile really really big.  Thanks everyone

Till tomorrow

Vendor insight

A while ago a potential groom had asked me what made me different to other planners, well that really is not a question for me, I wouldn’t have any idea as I don’t get to interact with other planners in the capacity of doing our jobs, but more on a social or committee type situation.  So I posed the question to vendors who had known me a long time and others not so long.  What I got back was more than I expected, I wasn’t looking for love and adoration but I got that and my heart was touched and it kind of reinforced I am doing what I should be doing and what they see from their perspective in their roles on the day.  So I had kept that for me in case that question was asked again.

Then last month I got an email from a videographer I worked with on one wedding in 2015 and his last sentence really touched me, we sometimes have no clue the positive effect we are having on someone’s life/career.  When I worked at Disney I had taken the time after weddings to send a real letter to vendors we had not worked with before that did a great job to thank them for being a great team player and a dj who got one of those letters reached out to me a year or so ago to tell me he still had that letter and what it had meant to him.  So no matter who we are/what we do, positive reinforcement makes us all feel good about who we are and what we do, so I want to share the videographers email as well as comments from the vendors that I asked for so you get some insight on me and how I work so you can see if I am the right vendor for you.  I won’t give the names of the other vendors here in order to not alienate them with regards to other planners, but you can certainly reach out to me and I will tell you who they are.

January 18

Want to wish you a very Happy New Year and tell you what a pleasure it was for me to work with you and your clients last year.  I am hopeful that we will continue our working relationship into 2016 and beyond.  Most importantly, I want to thank you for creating such a positive environment that made it so easy for me to create the most amazing event film of my career.  Thank you again and let’s stay connected.

Best Regards, David    David Medill Productions.

Ceremony musician-Comparing you to other planners I have these notes – You are to the point/no chatter which allows us to focus on why we are there.  Your timelines are fabulous, they are clear/precise and a godsend as we sometimes don’t even see one.  On the day your instructions/ques are very clear.  You build cohesive teams and a nice atmosphere on the day.

Videographer – Your decorating skills are exquisite and ALWAYS styled to the clients taste.  Your timelines are always extremely detailed (down to making sure they eat), you follow up with every vendor several times making sure they know where they need to be.  Your professionalism goes a long way with the venues and guests.  You are well travelled and are familiar with destination events as well as S CA.  Everyone knows when they hire you, you get the job done.  Most of all, your kindness and passion for your ‘job’ is what makes you the best!

Band – Some of your main strengths above your peers is the fact that you have developed and nourished long term working relationships, not only with outside vendors but even the serving staff at the resorts you service (the love and respect illuminates).  This works as a major enhancement for all your events because everyone is on the same page and connected to the success of the event.  I know this to be true, your unselfish kindness is infectious.  I enjoy working with you more than most and look forward to each of your events.  If your clients are seeking someone who has the gifts of creating, facilitating their thoughts of an unforgettable evening I strongly recommend they sign you right away.  PS: Of all the jobs we’ve done over the years I have never seen a repeat concept which shows you have a gift of seeking the best out of your clients to personalize a special day just for them

Photographer – You make the most detailed timelines I’ve ever seen.  People know where to be and when things are happening – organization is critical to a successful event! I don’t know why more event planners don’t follow your lead on this.  You have a natural ability to calm nervous brides and smooth their fears and anxiety.  I have watched you do this on many occasions and have admired that quality.  Someone hiring you would probably have no clue about this, but it is so important.  You’re also quite talented at getting the best out of your vendors/team which early benefits the client.  Assembling and managing a creative team is more important that most clients understand.  Finally you’re very creative.  You don’t ever seem to do cookie-cutter decor.  I can tell you give special attention to each client and have really listened to them whenever I walk into one of your reception rooms.

Photographer – Here is what I think brides love about you – From the minute the bride speaks with you they can really sense your extreme knowledge, confidence and passion towards all aspects of a wedding.  Because of that you make the prospective bride feel secure she made the right choice by hiring you for their big day.  Experience is key! Since you also have lots of samples and experience at the location you work at that also makes the bride confident with you!  Your wedding day timelines are extremely detailed! The brides love that and so do the vendors! Staying current and on top of the trends!  Since you are always networking you get to see the latest and greatest which your brides benefit from.  And certainly not last, they all love your “New Zealand ‘ accent!  No one can compete with that!

Photographer – What sets you apart….. Best people skills in the business.  You are steady, confident, incredibly knowledgeable not only about how to do something but who would be the best vendor to do it, have impeccable taste, never any drama.. and are funny, … and did I say, no drama? The thing that stands out to me when I work with you are the relationships you have with everyone on the set.  From the venue to the busboy, you have always built incredible teams on every job.  I feel as though we are all there for the right reason and we would all help each other out however we could that day.  With newer planners, the vendors never know each other and it always seems to be just a job for the day where everyone can’t wait to get out there.  Definitely not so with you.  I love the feeling of camaraderie on your weddings.  Some teachers have the gift of making you want to learn more, some coaches make you more passionate about the game and build better teams each year, and Lisa makes me look forward to her weddings knowing they are going to be the most organized and beautiful events with great vendors and very happy clients at the end.  Plus, you know more, research more and spend more time on your business than anyone I know,  and it shows.  Thanks for the opportunity to say these things.

Dj – This is easy. I’ve worked with a bunch of different co-ordinators.  Some of them are easy to work with, relaxed and fun.  Others are great at “getting the job done” but usually are so high strung they make the wedding seem like more of a ‘job’ than a ‘celebration’.  You are able to somehow excel at everything.  You’re laid back and fun, but I never need to worry about that any detail will go overlooked.  When I talk to the couples who work with you I can tell they are relaxed.  You inspire the same confidence in your clients as you do in your vendors and that truly is a gift.  If you EVER need anyone to sing your praises directly please feel free to give them my number.  I can’t say enough about how great you are and how great your weddings are.

Florist – Easy question, hardest part is putting the answer into words.  I LOVE your honesty and no nonsense approach and how it is always done classy, eloquently, and effortlessly.  I find that events with you run very smoothly and that’s fought to say considering what we do … You are extremely conscious of your clients budgets and that is a HUGE advantage that any couple that hires you should greatly appreciate!  And of course I love your KIWI accent!  We love working with you!!!

Videographer – There are several things that set you apart from other wedding planners, but I will share two BiG benefits you bring:

  1. Your planning and co-ordinating process is impeccable! No other coordinator delivers a timeline weeks in advance of the event.  Most co-ordinators send me a timeline a day or two before the wedding and expect that I will have time to learn all about the day and adjust as necessary in 24-48 hours before the event.  We do just that of course because we have to, but the client is short changed by such a short sighted effort.  You communicate with each professional throughout the process of the planning to confirm everyone is on the same page all the way through so there are no questions and no surprises on the event day.  No other co-ordinator contacts me as often as you do during the planning process, you are second to none when it comes to planning and coordination.
  2. 2. You are not only experienced in event planning but you are talented with great ‘people skills’.  Many planners I work with are very likable and good with people.  Some are efficient and thorough.  Few have both qualities and even fewer have both qualities at the level you do.  A wedding planner is the Executive Producer of a once in a lifetime event, managing a team of professionals, service providers and vendors (all with their own needs, goals and agendas) AND at the same time personally assisting and fulfilling the needs of the couple, family and their guests.  That Executive Producer had better have a wealth of experience and great admin and people skills if everyone’s expectations are going to be met.  You have what it takes to be the top of your field.  Your success and reputation attest that you are among the best of the best at what you do.  Your modesty may case you to hesitate to share my opinion and observations with future clients, but I hope you do share my thoughts with every couple considering you and your services.

Officiant: I have known Lisa for over 24 years and we have performed hundreds of weddings together.  Lisa is very professional and highly regarded in her profession.  For me she is the number 1 wedding co-ordinator in Sa CA.  Lisa always gives over 100% to her brides and grooms in helping them plan their wedding.

Photographer/female who used to be a planner: I think you are absolutely wonderful! You are kind, quick at solving problems and finding solution.  You are always delightful and caring.  You are very meticulous and put so much into consideration for a couples wedding along with taking excellent care of the vendors.  You are strong, smart and fun!  You are always happy and genuinely care about your clients and treat them like royalty.  You can’t fake that!! that’s why we love working with you.

From me, Lisa, think my new mantra will be

Experience is EVERYTHING when it comes to planning your wedding/celebration.

Till tomorrow

Lisa

St Regis Monarch Beach-Botanical Garden & Club 19

photo 2 photo 3 

My lovely Brooke, a journey that lasted 1 1/2 years until the big day arrived.  We had such a great time and Brooke went through a lot of changes, left her job and went back to school, by the time the wedding came the groom was back at school too.  Moving from New York to another state, Brooke spent a month backpacking through Europe with her brother, 2-3 trips out here, which were always great and mom and Brooke and I enjoyed champagne a few times together, loved everything about the months of planning on this one and could not wait for the big day to be here and see everything become a reality.  The dancing/inside area of Club 19 was important, so we created a club feel inside and got a great band who kept the dancefloor full, Uncover Live under the direction of George.  Brooke wanted to do something different in the Club 19 area and I came up with the cabana idea on the lower patio, which Brooke loved and became a huge talking point of the celebration, and as the celebration went on more and more people went down there to relax and be comfy!!

  photo 5 photo 6

Brooke wanted to do a round menu card and I immediately said, fabulous, it can sit under the charger all night, perfect.  Classic Party Rentals created the cabanas and provided the furniture/benches down there, loved it.

photo 7  photo 9

We had a sweetheart table, rounds and had a great of 14 we could not break up so we had a rectangle table center stage, it all looked great.

photo144470020015 144470040003 DSC_3901

From the beginning Brooke wanted to do edible placecards.  So on the cocktail lawn our placecard table was center and the trays of hors d’oevures with guests names/table #s were easy to find and then enjoy!!

DSC_3904 DSC_4080 DSC_4082 DSC_4084 DSC_4093

One of my favourite parts of the day, especially when I have lived and breathed a vision with a bride and gone through months of helping her get it started, finesse it and then see it become a reality, when I get to show my couples how it all turned out.

DSC_4109

Fabulous chandeliers hanging, moss table numbers and beautiful flowers, Elegant by Design/Karla you are wonderful, thanks for bringing my words/thoughts to the reality I tell my brides they are going to see and for backing up what I tell them, they are in great hands and have nothing to worry about, their expectations will be exceeded.

Thanks to Julie Cate/their photographer they flew in from New York, for some of the pics above. To Paul Uhlar for doing a lovely ceremony as always. To Naples Strings for ceremony/cocktail music, and to Monico Décor for the rentals we used in the dining and dancing areas.  Last but not least, to the beautiful Kelly O’Dell and the team at the St Regis, you are all awesome, thank you.

Till next time

Intimate beautiful St Regis Monarch beach wedding

IMG_0236  IMG_0243

Mina had been following me on instagram for over a year and had made contact a few times with a potential date in mind but then got a job as an international air hostess so that held things up for a bit, but finally the day came that we could start planning her special wedding celebration.  Because of her schedule most of the planning was actually done with her groom, we became firm friends.  In fact he called me a week after the wedding was over and I thought oh no, what has happened, and he was just calling to personally thank me for all my help.  Touched my heart!!!

IMG_0248 IMG_0251

Because it was relatively short term and their family was coming in from all around the world, it was a lovely intimate group, 20!!  We had all the fixings of a large wedding celebration, and when the dancing began this group danced, for nearly 2 hours all the guests were on the floor dancing, the two moms would stop every now and again but everyone else was there to party, including the brides Japanese dad who was hilarious. Also, the most elaborate unity candle setup I have ever seen, just beautiful.

IMG_0255 IMG_0258

Of course a great vendor team is always required no matter what size or style of wedding you are doing, thanks to Karla/Elegant by Design-florist, as always you make my brides so happy when they see it all come together on the day.  BTW, the Mediterranean room looks lovely with a bit of uplighting, I pushed for draping, but they just couldn’t justify it in the budget.

Till next time

Grand Lawn/Club 19 St Regis Monarch Beach

photo 2

I am such a fan of white dancefloors as I think they can really tie a look together and sometimes can make the look if lacking in other areas.  Some of my brides agree and some are aok with the dancefloor the hotel provides, above the priority was lounge furniture/club vibe and later when its dark/dancing time it all looks great.  There are no right/wrongs, it comes back to your priorities

photo 4

Sometimes color palettes change too, originally this wedding was white and green florals for a fresh look and use orange or yellow for napkins to add a pop, but after the mockup the brides mom wanted the yellow and orange to be much more visible, and so it became!

photo 5  photo 7 photo

Their guest list started a tad high to be able to do the two long tables, but as happens it organically went down and Joanna was thrilled to be able to do the two long tables.  It looked great.  Thanks to Karla/EBD florist for making the vision/budget work and being so gracious in working with last minute changes, Peter/Vive Ent for djing and keeping that dancefloor full, Design Visage for beautifying all the ladies, Joanna looked so lovely.  Monico Décor for the rentals, and the team at St Regis for as always being awesome to work with and ensuring all went seamlessly from their end.

Till next time

Two day wedding/Ritz & St Regis

jayadevan_0228 jayadevan_0253

I just love it when I can incorporate my two fave locations in S CA, and so lucky I actually get to do it quite often.  Tala and Raj were doing a two day event, incorporating two cultures and traditions.  We chose to do the Indian Celebration/day at the St Regis and day 2 for the Persian Celebration at the Ritz-Carlton Laguna.  Lucky guests getting the best of the OC for the celebration of this fab couple and really lovely parents.

jayadevan_0391 jayadevan_1126

As you can see Tala wanted different colors to the traditional Indian wedding colors (my Indian weddings are rarely traditional colors), we used the existing rotunda at the cere site as the mandap structure and it worked really well.  Our groom arrived on a Rickshaw for the baraat, in the picture above the guests are congregating for the milni.  The tables on the Grand Lawn is where the guests went for lunch after the Indian ceremony was over.  Now what you don’t see/know is there was a threat of rain for the ceremony/lunch time, so the night before we draped a portion of the dinner room as ceremony backup and with the chiavaris I have to say it looked awesome.  The decision to move inside had to be made as 7am, so who could sleep right, I was up at 4am driving downtown Dana Point and the roads was slik, hmmm.  At 6:50am up again looking out my hotel window, talking to the florist who was at the property, and we made the decision to stay outside.  I saw father of the bride while I was having breakfast at the hotel and he said to me, in or out, out I said, he smiled.  And again, on my watch, all was good, in fact it was quite warm/hot towards the end of the ceremony and luncheon!!

jayadevan_1352 jayadevan_1355 jayadevan_1357 jayadevan_1359

Then the evening sangeet.  We reused the draping we were doing as ceremony backup and moved it (again the importance of vendors who work together a lot and will do things spur of the moment when needed/will make it work for me).

jayadevan_2123

On Day 2 we had a bridal party, and how elegant they look.

jayadevan_2245 jayadevan_2319

Great shot of the back of Tala’s gown on Day 2, and the sofreh with a pretty spectacular backdrop!!

jayadevan_2426 jayadevan_2701

Tala was not a Persian bride wanting large/big florals, for the ballroom everything was low for the reception/dinner/dance for 300, when you do low florals in such a big ballroom they get lost in pictures, but believe me the room looked beautiful, elegant and calm, just like our bride.  We had the space in the Grand Ballroom at the Ritz-Carlton Laguna to do a mix of long and round tables which is always fun.

jayadevan_2708 jayadevan_2721 jayadevan_2756 jayadevan_2766

Thanks to Frank Salas for the above photos, to White Lilac for being a great partner for two days and creating such beauty, David Medill/videographer great to meet and work with him for the first time, Flawless Faces for beautifying the girls for both days, and to my favorite Persian officiant, Shahrzad Ardelan – I refer her to everyone and am always sad when a couple doesn’t go with her.  To the teams at both St Regis and Ritz-Carlton Laguna as always, we create beautiful dream weddings together, I appreciate you all.  xoxoxo

St Regis Monarch Beach-Botanical Garden & Club 19

photo 2photo 3

I got way behind in my blogging and it has taken nearly a year, but this is my last wedding I am blogging from 2014!!!  A couple of 2015 have got in the mix, but Chenine’s fab wedding ends my 2014 blogging.

Loved working with Chenine and her mom, we got a vision going pretty quickly, bling was important, blue and white.  Then we got our great vendor team pulled together.  On the day Chenine’s reaction when she saw her dining area I will never forget, it was wonderful.  The only thing missing and it was more my wishlist than their’s was a white dancefloor, oh well, lol.

photo 4photo 5

Thanks to Karla/Elegant by Design, for as always listening to my brides so their wedding is their wedding and does not look like any others we have done, thank you thank you.  Paul Uhlar/officiant, Al/Alvarron Ent-dj, Monico Décor for the rentals, and to my wonderful Frank Salas for always being a joy to work with and for making my couples memories even better when they see their photographers after, and thanks for the photos here.  And it goes without saying but I must say it, to the team at the St Regis for being five star/five diamond all the way.
