Pelican Hill Resort Wedding 2020

Well we managed to get this wedding done March 15, 2020, the day before pretty much everyone in the USA went under shelter at home and no gatherings of more than 50 people which went down to 10 people within a day.  As I said to the mom of our groom (who was just a doll to deal with from beginning to end and wants to come work with me!!) where she was thinking the fall out of guests in the week leading up to the wedding was stressful, at least we got to have their beautiful wedding and it was such a wonderful celebration for a really really cool/awesome couple, so many after that date through now and probably mid June, hopefully not longer, I have an end of June wedding holding on tight hoping they can have their wedding as planned, have not been able to have their weddings.  I have had 6 weddings from April-mid June move dates and look very forward to the day we can celebrate them, it will be worth the wait for all.

But I digress, the Groom’s mom and bride had an inspiration pic they had been carrying around and we pretty much duplicated it.  Mom has great style and really wanted to make this wedding special, she loves her daughter in law to be and had special touches added that really personalised the wedding for them.

Thanks to TMMPRO for the rotunda draping & behind the band stage also/lighting in the ballroom +bistro lighting over cocktail patio, and the band stage cover, Simply Sweet Cakery for the wedding cake and the hidden Mickey that was special for the bride, Karla at Elegant by Design for as always putting your heart into my weddings, another beautiful job.  We had my new fav vendor Amy Serrano play the acoustic violin for the ceremony and switch it up to the electric violin with her led bow for cocktails, she has such great energy and loves what she does, the dinner/dancing was done by On demand who I have worked with a few times in the past year or so, and we had a taco cart for late night snacks as a surprise to the guests and that went down very well.  And to Miki & Sonja for being so lovely to work with and for the good pics in this post (mine are the bad ones) and to Lin & Jirsa for video on this one.

To our lovely ladies at Pelican, it was a tough day for staff there as they knew they were not going to be working for a while after, but everyone pulled through and helped me create a wonderful wedding for this special couple, our groom’s mom, and the guests who I know are not going to ever be sorry for making it to this wedding. xoxxo

Now the only good thing to come out of coronavirus is, this post makes the end of me sitting here for the past 2-3 weeks and getting caught up on nearly 3 years worth of wedding blogs/posts of weddings during that time and travel blogs that i have been meaning to do, it was nearly 200, and a lot of work, but if it wasn’t for coronavirus i would have never found or had the time to do this.  So I am now going to drink some champagne to celebrate being caught up and hopefully have a little down time before we go crazy with a years worth of weddings happening in 6 months of what will be left of 2020. Fingers and toes crossed.

Till next time

Pelican Hill Wedding Reception

Ryna and Mike were already married when they came to me, but wanted to have a wedding reception.  When we sat down to do the budget and for me to get a good feel for their style/vision etc, Ryna told me her dream was to have her celebration at Pelican Hill.  Well this is where my contacts at all the major hotels in the OC are always to your benefit and your flexibility can be paired beautifully, and so it was for my lovely Ryna.

     

This was a January wedding so we lost light early, so we added bistro lights at the patio where cocktails were, thanks to TMMPRO along with them doing the ballroom draping/hanging cake structure/chiavaris/my fave round dancefloor+decal. oxox

Design Visage did hair/makeup at the Resort because Ryna still got to use the bridal suite under the ballroom and they got to have lovely photos taken around the resort before cocktails began.  Flowers by Cina did the flowers and a fine job as always.  Her photographer was lovely a husband and wife team, their pics are the bottom better ones, lol, she was great about getting them to me, unfortunately we were not as good on our end to download them before they expired and after her doing it for me 2 times i felt bad asking her the 3rd time and did not hear back, oops.  So Ryna got me these pics, but again she was a lovely lady/photographer, and the pics were awesome.  Of course the team at Pelican are fabulous and they say they like me the best there, hmmmm, so let’s do more celebrations there, i want to help you future couples xoxoxox

Till next time
