Ritz-Carlton Marina Del Rey Wedding Reception


What a lovely family we got to work with on this wedding.  Jamie and her dad were the planners for the majority of things, i loved how involved dad was.  The ceremony was at a church about 10 mins away from the Ritz, we were lucky and there was not a ceremony using the ceremony space at the hotel which is really lovely, so we got to use that for cocktails and then up to the smaller ballroom we went for the dinner/dance, which also has a lovely wrap around balcony which you can see the ceremony site, pool area and boats in the marina/water, views from!!


I love how no matter where my weddings may take me/where they may be, i have a team of willing vendors to go with me, lol.  Design Visage prettied everyone up.  EBD Florals did the church and ballroom, TMMPRO did my dancefloor and chiavaris as always, and Peter/Vive Ent did our cocktail and dinner/dance music/mceeing and a great job as always.  It was my first wedding at Ritz-Carlton Marina Del Rey, though I had been there for a couple of events, it was great to be there and work with the team, and are looking very forward to being back again. xoxoxox

Till next time

2016 wedding specials

Well sometimes brides are in the right place/right time or flexible, and when hotels have space sitting open they are looking to fill them.

Here are a couple of great offerings that I can help you with if you are willing to play:

Want to get married prior to the end of June and just haven’t done anything about it, well this may light the fire.  One of the top hotels/locations in the OC is offering their premium space at very reasonable F&B minimums if you are open to a Mon-Thursday wedding.  Now it may seem strange, but if most of the guests are travelling too and taking extra time, then doing it during the week is not going to be a bother for the guests, in fact air can be cheaper than flying on weekends and I know that a lot of vendors see a weekday wedding as a bonus and are quite flexible with their fees, with the exception of florists of course, they have product that still needs to be paid for.  So small or large, consider a weekday it is really a benefit to you. And if they have Fri-Sundays open yes sirree they are wanting to make it work.  Give me a call, lets chat and see what we can do.

If S CA is not really for you, or you are looking for June-October, then lets head to Mexico, so many great locations, ie Cabo, Cancun, and some of the resorts in the Playa del Carmen region are pretty fabulous, very spread out and you get the beach as well as vegetation to not feel like you are in a concrete jungle like Cancun (which is absolutely fabulous for those wanting action) and you are close to the really quaint restaurant row area of Playa which is what you kind of hope you are going to experience while in Mexico.  So let me know if any of this sounds like you and lets get it going:

If you are 30 people total or under, $15,500 gives you:

For the B&G, airport transfers, Comp room on the wedding night, room upgrade, late checkout, 1 50 minute massage each, access to the lounge, brides hair and makeup on wedding day/including a trial, bouquet and bout

Your ceremony is held at an oceanview gazebo decorated with fabric and flowers, petal aisle, and an officiant/English.

A violinist is included for cocktail time, as well as, 4 hour bar, and a dj

Hors D’oevures and dinner and wedding cake.  They do different levels of food/beverage offerings, so based on your personal preference you could end up at $18,300 for the same size group, and of course they would never turn anyone away, there is a per person rate you can add on if you are 31 or more total.

Your guests get 15% off spa services, 10% off breakfast the morning after the wedding, arse a special wedding rate for accommodations.

Till next time
