Pasea Hotel & Spa: Experience California Coastal from the Inside Out

November 30th, 2016

If there is one thing I love as much as weddings…it is the California Coast including and not limited to the waves, the sand, to every shade of blue. I love palm trees, ocean breezes, brilliant sunsets, surf boards, even the oversized beach towels have their charm with vibrant colors against a golden tan or golden sand…and of course I love flip flops!  Imagine now you get to experience it all from the inside out…it’s possible.

Enter the Pasea Hotel & Spa – Huntington Beach’s newest luxury resort on the Pacific coast. The resort is all encompassing of Surf City USA’s beach culture. The hotel offers 250 guest rooms all with epic ocean views including a 1900 square foot Penthouse. Contemporary organic furnishings complement the open airy spaces, natural wood used through out the hotel including the pool deck and artwork from local California artists further elevate the hotels coastal aesthetic – including the incredible piece in the lobby made entirely of flip flops and shaped into ocean waves. Another favorite was by local photographer Gray Malin known to shoot his photographs out of a doorless helicopter.  Each floor of the hotel is a shade of blue going from dark to light. Even the brightly orange towels at the pool add to the happy beach vibe.

The hotel is also home to a Balinese inspired Aarna Spa with both indoor and outdoor facilities, fitness center, complimentary bicycle rentals, Beach Butlers to take care of all your sand inspired needs from arranging surf lessons with local instructors to offering rides to the beach in the Pasea pedi-cab. Dining includes Tanner’s -well known for it’s roof-top bar the Treehouse. The hotel is also adjacent to the new Pacific City which offers many options for oceanfront dining, shopping and entertainment.

Pasea offers over 34,000 square feet of ocean front event space – with indoor ballroom, terrace with fire-pits and a great Ocean Lawn overlooking the Pacific. The newest wedding venue in Huntington Beach and the perfect backdrop for weddings and special events in Southern California – Pasea Hotel & Spa is located at 21080 Pacific Coast Highway, Huntington Beach, CA 92648..

Bride’s Focus Group @ The Resort at Pelican Hill Newport Coast

May 1st, 2016

Amazing experience getting to know the brides at The Resort at Pelican Hill for Something Lovely’s focus group. Bride’s enjoyed an amazing lunch and aperitifs by the incredible catering group at the Pelican Hill Resort in Newport Coast. The ladies first met in the Great Room for a refreshing Mimosa and tour of the Five Diamond resort and ended in the Mar Vista Ballroom for lunch. The images don’t do justice for the breathtaking rolling greens and panoramic ocean views.

Brides took in the beautiful table scape and views as they settled into their seats.  Nisie’s Enchanted outdid themselves with the stunning grey and white florals in silver mercury bottles; including roses, hydrangea, dusty miller, and brasilia berries. Exquisite linens and chair covers were done by Wildflower Linen – including a touch of turquoise with the napkins. Chair rentals by Chaviari Chair Rentals.

Having brides only at the focus group was really helpful for our research and the brides LOVED it – they got to hear the perspective of other brides dealing with some of the same dilemmas and were bonding on all things wedding in no time:)

As the luncheon ended – all brides went home with fabulous Swag Bags filled with some pretty cool gifts, including: Jo Malone Fragrance, Kendra Scott Earrings, Btoffee, Project Juice, Soul Cycle class pass, Sprinkles Cupcakes, Roots Beauty Make-up session, Casa Blanca Bridal tape measures, Sweet Lady Jane treats, Five Crowns bottle openers and Vanity Belles Hair Session and more!

Special thanks to the Coastal Collection for sponsoring our luncheon including The Resort at Pelican Hill, Hotel Irvine and the Island Hotel.

Stay tuned as we announce the location for our next Bride’s focus group coming Summer 2016!!
