Hyatt HB Vista Ballroom wedding

What a wonderful relationship Lucrezia and her mom have, well that is probably because Lucrezia is so lovely, and she married lovely Hugo, so it was all just calm and lovely.  How lucky am I to have such lovely client’s.  The Vista Ballroom is the one we have done the most weddings in from the day the hotel opened, and what i love is that not two weddings have been the same, thanks to my couple’s varied styles/budgets/visions and the vendor teams we bring on board.  Don’t you love the backdrop to their sweet heart table?  Her mom was the one that came up with that ultimately and we all loved it.

Lighthouse Lawn ceremony, which normally does not go with Vista Ballroom but it worked out for them and we set it sunset facing.

Of course we had my fave round dancefloor and their custom decal was fabulous, all by TMMPRO along with the draping/3 walls, lighting/chargers/chiavaris. Plug Video was in the house, and Brent Edwards officiated/great job as always.  Napkins by Luxe Linens, Florals by Elegant by Design/Karla and team, and thanks for the photos Mr Frank Salas, always a pleasure working with him, so calm and easy and get things done & gets the shot!!  And to our friends at Hyatt HB, thanks for helping us bring wedding dreams to fruition.

Till next time

Hyatt HB intimate Vista Ballroom wedding

Had the honor of helping Dean and Michael with their wedding celebration .  They were just a pleasure (as all my guys have been) to work with.  It was an intimate group of 37, they were originally in Sandpiper but Vista Ballroom was available and the hotel offered it to them, they were a bit hesitant but I knew we could make it look good and no one ever complains about too much space, right!!

We put the dancefloor+decal at a diamond shape with sheart table at one point/cake at the opposite point and that gave us 4 sides for each of the guest tables to be beside, so everyone was around the dancefloor , TMMPRO provided the dancefloor/decal/lighting & chargers. Duane Peck was the photographer, I think the bottom pic is his the rest are off my iPhone i believe, Luxe Linens provided linens/napkins, and Sweet Traders did the awesome cake you see there.  Touch of Lavender florist and DJ Diamond they found on their own and they did a great job for our couple on the day.

80% of my couples do not live in CA, so working by email/phone to pull everything together is no problem for me, and that was a good thing with this couple as, one groom is in the military and was in Iraq for most of the planning months and we emailed back and forth and had a couple of conversations while he was there, and the other groom is  English and works for an airline and was in England/Europe most of the time.  Again, not a problem for me and it all turned out aok!

 

Of course we always owe a big hug to the team at Hyatt HB, teamwork makes the dream work.

Till next time

Hyatt HB Indian Wedding

    

This blog will give you a good feel for the special moments/elements of a wedding day celebration, thanks to Andrew Kwak Photo for the pics.  Hair and makeup was a collaboration between Drea and Lulu, Daisy the horse was there of course, and Sound Nation/Raj kept things going from the baraat with the dohl player through to the end of the evening dinner/dance.  Thanks to our friends at Hyatt HB as always too xoxo

     

the pics above are when the bride and groom leave after the ceremony (normally done around 11am so it is done by noon) and luncheon to follow, for the grooms family home.  The vehicle they leave in varies, i have had everything from luxury car as above to helicopter to yachts!!  It’s a really emotional time for the bride and her parents and family because life as they knew it with her at home/in the family will now be different/change.  The good news is, on this day, they make it back in time to get ready for the dinner/dance celebration, yayyyyy

         

Till next time

Hyatt HB Huntington Ballroom wedding

Our bride had dreamed of her wedding for a long time, so anything that could be added to make it perfect, she did.  She added a chandelier to the ceiling in Huntington Ballroom, her ceremony floral circle got moved to behind the cake, we draped and at the ceremony she had lovely words of love on boards going down the aisle, doves/White Flite were released at the end of the ceremony, a string trio played ceremony music, mariachis played at cocktails, and a band and dj were in the ballroom, Katella Bakery did an awesome job with her cake vision.  The ceremony was at CA Courtyard, cocktails were Huntington Ballroom balcony & foyer, and then into the ballroom.  Face it Sugar did hair&makeup.  Kudos to The Finishing Touch/Brandi & Doug, a lot of work but it all came together and looked beautiful.  And of course to our friends at the Hyatt HB, kudos xox

Hyatt HB – Huntington Ballroom

Another wedding where I pulled everything together and then Nicole oversaw/orchestrated the event on the day, can you see she has done a ton at Hyatt HB so is very familiar with the property and the staff, so you are in great hands with her!

Ceremony was on Lighthouse Courtyard lawn angled to the sunset, cocktails on Huntington Ballroom balcony and then into Huntington Ballroom

thanks to Lin & Jirsa for the photos, Design Visage did hair&makeup, Invisible Touch/Trevor provided all the music, and the team from Hyatt HB as always, a pleasure to work with before and during a wedding event xoxox

Till next time

Hyatt Huntington Beach wedding

Sometimes with our couple’s doing church ceremonies we are at the church also and sometimes our role is only at the hotel, as was the case with Urmi’s wedding.  She worked with me on the planning/pulling everything together and then on the day, Nicole was there and overseeing/orchestrating and because it was a big wedding, both Darla and Cece were there assisting her.

We had a mixture of round and rectangle tables and placed the dancefloor as a diamond which is a cool way to work with as many as rectangles to make all feel special close to dancefloor and not block the dancefloor off when it is square.  Thanks to Lin & Jirsa for the pics, Luxury Lifestyle Studios/video, Design Visage for hair/makeup, we had a lovely violinist for cocktails and a caricature artist too both of which are great when you have a longer cocktail time.  Thanks as always to the team at Hyatt HB, teamwork makes the dreamwork for sure xoxoxxo

Till next time

Hyatt HB – Fun Vista Ballroom wedding

 

From my first meeting with Greg and Arlynne I knew this was going to be a fun one and i said to Arlynne, ‘your life is never going to be boring with this one’.  Greg constantly makes jokes and is just funny and he wanted the wedding to be that way and incorporate elements that guests would know he had input, Arlynne just let him do his thing and he took the lead.  He came up with some wacky ideas that i would at first say, yeah sure lets do that, then i would realise he was being serious and have to say, oh hang on let’s really talk this through.  lol

 

From the get go the donut wall was major, he really wanted donuts from his favourite store as everyone knows he goes there everyday, but unfortunately that was not able to happen so the hotel provided the board and donuts and they did them in blue which was the wedding color and did them in a heart.

From the Blue wands with bells that everyone waved during the ceremony when it took their fancy to when the Bridal Party exited the cere (the wands had meaning for the bride and were her one important item), the LOVE sign in the foyer, the mirror seating chart,  the best band ever (lol, as Greg and the guests were all saying at the end, and yes they did extend the band because that dancefloor was full and they couldn’t get enough of Adam and the Full Spectrum band), to the In N Out cake (also made by Sweet Traders that made the wedding cake) because everyone knows Greg also loves In N Out-that his bride surprised him with, that was the only item he knew nothing about and we pulled that off, whew!!  There was always something that the guest’s were saying, this is awesome, what a great time.

They sat at a small oval table with their bestman&wife and matronOH&husband and the guests were at rounds with a mix of tall/low centerpieces (florals all by EBD of course!!). To Jacqueline Kay Photography (the pics above are a mix of her’s and mine), Shane Productions/video, Design Visage for hair/makeup and keeping the ladies on time, TMMPRO for my fave round dancefloor/lighting/chargers/stage cover, thank you to our custom vendor team who got the vibe and made it happen, and to our friends at Hyatt HB always xoxoxo

And yes this is cake!!! from vendors to hotel staff to guests, people were amazed!!!  Someone even asked me, will it taste like cake or a burger, and what about the French fries?  Hmmm, good question, i had no idea and as we did not cut any of it, it went to the B&G room to enjoy the next day, i never asked, so we will never know, lol!!

Till next time

Hyatt Huntington Beach wedding

Jill and Jonathan are awesome.  They live in Huntington Beach and Jonathan is a volleyball player that lives at the beach, so having their wedding celebration at Hyatt HB was a no brainer.  When they booked me to help them plan/orchestrate their wedding we had one date and along the way it changed and I was already booked at the hotel for another couple, so the cool thing was, even though Nicole/one of my Day of Co-ordinators, orchestrated their event on the day, I was able to go over and see how everything looked and hug this great couple.  They did not want the sunset angle or straight on to the lighthouse for the ceremony so we angled the ceremony towards Vista Ballroom and the pics turned out aok, have actually done this a couple of times now, then the guests had cocktails on the Vista Balcony looking out to the beach that Jonathan loves so much, and then in to Vista Ballroom, where we have done the majority of our wedding celebrations at Hyatt HB and i think more in that room than anyone else!!

And my time with them continued, they honeymooned through me at Sandals in Granada in a beautiful suite with an infinity pool on their balcony and an awesome view of the resort looking out to the ocean, and now 3 years later through Instagram we like each others posts and i get to go through their fertility struggle with them  xoxox

Thanks to Nicole and the team for ensuring a great celebration for them and their guests, Joel Austell/photo, Design Visage for prettying the ladies up, Jim Vita/Guitarist for cere/cocktail music, Peter/Vive Entertainment for the dinner/dancing music & mceeing, Sweet Traders for the beautiful cake, EBD Floral as always great job, TMMPRO for my favourite round dancefloor & decal/draping/lighting/chiavaris, Luxe linens for linens/napkins and of course to the peeps at Hyatt Hb for always being wonderful to work with, go team!!!  xoxxo

Till next time

Hyatt Huntington Beach Intimate Wedding

Hyatt Huntington Beach has quite a few smaller rooms for intimate weddings.  It makes a great mix to have the ceremony with the ocean/beach backdrop (which they did using the Lighthouse Lawn angled to the sunset) and then come to a smaller room with or without windows where the dinner/dance becomes the focus, no distractions.  This is the Sandpiper room which has its own patio area for cocktails, but actually opens onto the Red Chair Lounge Patio and for some weddings we take over that space also and have access to the Red Chair Lounge, so something to consider for weddings of 80 or less.  For Shay’s wedding she wanted to be different and have a black base, so we did the black linens the hotel offers and got black chiavaris and dancefloor from TMMPRO along with hot pink uplights to add some pizzazz and that was one of her colors.  We also had duo steeldrums from Essense Entertainment for the pre ceremony/ceremony and cocktail time, which really gave the guests a beachy vibe/feel for the event, and then after dinner surprised them all with belly dancers who put on a great show, as an omage to Shay’s heritage.  A really fun wedding.  What i love about what i do and my couples, each wedding i do is different, either by vendor team selected, vision, style etc.  Its not them having to fall into MY brand/style of wedding.

Great vendor team on this one, Joel Austell photographer, Paul Uhlar officiated with his lovely voice and words, cake by Creative Cakes one of the Hyatt HB cake partners, and the dinner/dancing music from Peter/Vive Entertainment who is the best when it comes to reading crowds and giving them what they want/when they want/need it.  And of course our friends at Hyatt HB, partners for life xoxoxox

Till next time
