Pelican Hill Resort, Intimate Indian Wedding

Yi yi yi. March last year as we started to pull at the final touches to this couples wedding, they said to me, are we going to be ok on our date? I said to them, oh this stay at home we are going into in 4 days will be done in 2-3 weeks and you will be fine. Little did we know eh, a year later nearly in March and I am getting those questions now for 2021 brides that already moved 1-2 times!!

So as we know it wasn’t ok, this couple moved their date two times in 2020, and then their hotel closed on them (still not open) and all monies were refunded. We are just going to the courthouse the groom said to me. I said, take a couple of days and think it over, it is your wedding day and whatever is done will be that memory, you have vendors that are paid we can look at other options. It won’t be your large Indian traditional celebration, but we can make it special/memorable. Well kudos to us/them for taking that time and for the Universe looking after them, we got to do their very intimate ceremony with the traditional mandap/Priest at one of the most beautiful prestigious wedding venues in the OC. Beautiful. And as the groom said to me at the end as they were leaving, this may just have turned out better and more meaningful/special than the original plan. Yes Nikhil yes, i believe it totally did.

Thanks to Kismit Designs for the floral/decor.

Goodnight 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
