Island Hotel – Newport Beach

I was at the Island Hotel when this bride and groom and her parents were walking around looking at it as a potential for her wedding reception, and they liked what they saw me doing for that wedding and I got booked for Maria’s. Their ceremony was at a church that does not have church ladies and I have done a few there now, so I was over there getting everyone up the aisle too.

From our awesome placecard table floral to the church and the ballroom, EBD Floral did a beautiful job again as always.

Linens and napkins came from Luxe.  We even had caricature artists after dinner which were very popular.

Thanks to Jacqueline Kay for some of the photos above and some are mine, the bad ones, lol.  And as always, to the Island Hotel team, thank you for being awesome.

Till next time

Beautiful wedding for a sweet bride

What a joy Ina was to work with, Frank Salas (thanks for the photos), Flowers By Cina and I kept saying how lucky we were to each other.

I always use TMMPRO for the dancefloor/chairs/lighting but this time we even had Jack himself as the dj, love it.

2011 – another year of lovely couples/weddings

Okay lovely brides, I have heard you.  If I am not blogging you think I am not working  (totally untrue), you like to see what my brides have done in the same space you are going to celebrate at (you will see some, but not all, sometimes  too many options is not good for you), and you like to see/know what I have been up to.  So, based on that I am going to post a bunch of blogs on the popular venues, unusual venues and anything else that I think you may find of interest from the year 2011, and for 2012 my promise to you and myself is anytime I think you will like what we have just  helped to create or info to help you along your path, I will be posting as the year goes along.

I am feeling quite excited to get things going, so thanks to those of you that told me it was time to get back to blogging!!!!!!  Now, I wait on my lovely photographer friends to get me the pics that you are dying to see (hint hint photographer friends!! LOL)

So to start things off, as I have these photos (thanks to Happy Photos/Santa Ana)….  I got a call early in the year from a bride who had been referred by a past bride (love those, and now I have a bridesmaid from this wedding who has booked me for her wedding at the Biltmore in LA in 2012, yay) and needed my help.  She was getting married in a church but really needed someone at her reception location to ensure all was well with setup,  vendors, and give her peace of mind.  I was thrilled as her location was the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa.  I had been to an event when the center opened and thought it was fabulous and never really thought of it as a wedding event location.  Well, you will see by the pictures below it makes for great pics.

I had the pleasure of working with Patina Catering group  (who I have worked with at other locations and of course like the restaurants around the OC), and her cake was by a chef who had competed on one of the cake shows on tv, so a lot of elements involved that made it nice and fun.

Thanks Donald and Annika, it was a beautiful celebration and what lovely family and friends you have.

Till next time
