Montage Deer Valley – Mountainside Wedding Venue Park City

May 9th, 2017

Snow in the Spring time =  magic + add the Montage Deer Valley and you have yourself a magical wonderland. We were lucky enough to stay here during Spring Break the first week in April. I should say a perfect time for a winter mountainside wedding – plenty of snow but the higher temps make it comfortable outside without too many layers. Check out the barefoot bride in the first photo below!

The Montage Deer Valley maybe known to many as one of the worlds best ski resorts with ski-in / ski-out access but it seems to be a hidden gem when it comes to weddings. The incredible property has several venues for both outdoor ceremonys and indoor receptions. The property amenities and impeccable service make it an experience all on it’s own – wether you are local to Park City or planning a destination wedding in the mountains. The snowscapes and picturesque backdrop regardless of what time of year it is – ensure amazing wedding photos to look back on for years to come. As a wedding planner this would be a dream wedding venue to design and plan a mountainside wedding.  Montage Deer Valley is a place where luxury and nature unite.

Some of my favorite things at Montage Deer Valley are documented below:

Veuve Clicquot Apres Chalet – (right on the Montage property)- ski down for an afternoon drink.

Inside of Veuve Clicquot Chalet – champs for all! Love the aesthetic. Another great spot for photos!

Drive up the entrance to the resort valet – beautiful lights – gorgeous sunset.

Vista Room – often transformed for wedding receptions. Large windows boast scenic views. A wedding planners dream!

Indoor Pool and Spa – adjacent to their on site fitness center and the largest spa in Park City.
Jacuzzi – with jaw dropping mountain view.

 Montage has it’s very own bowling alley inside the hotel.

Daily afternoon Smores and Hot chocolate – i think we came every day!

They have their very own tubing hill on the property with moving belt and all! This was actually right outside our room. Pretty sweet! and one of my favorite parts!

Concierge setup an awesome adventure! Dog Sledding – my kid even got to musher – checkout North Forty Escapes for their dog sledding and snow mobile experiences.

Family pic! Montage has photographers all through out the day to document your adventures on the property! best part is they airdrop or email them to you instantly!

Pendry San Diego – Bride’s Focus Group Wedding Luncheon

March 23rd, 2017

Loved meeting all the brides-to-be at the new Pendry San Diego last month. The new hotel in Downtown Gaslamp Quarter is part of the Montage Collection of hotels and an incredible space with so many cool venue locations for weddings and events. Not only do they have exquisite ballrooms but the hotel offers six unique bars and eateries – all with venue spaces thoughtfully designed with their own look and feel. Our bride’s enjoyed a lovely lunch by the amazing catering group at the Pendry San Diego – we started off with refreshing Mimosas and tour of the upscale urban hotel. During break time – all the bride’s were delighted with an array of sweets from Pendry San Diego’s Pastry Chef- including mini wedding cakes for each bride to enjoy, Pendry pink macarons and more! Service staff impeccable!!!

We are truly lucky to have some of the best partners in the wedding industry help create our space.  Blooms by Breesa Lee outdid herself with lovely florals in pinks and blushes.  Exquisite light grey table linens by Wildflower – including pink napkins to add a pop of color to place settings. All the brides loved the Noveau Diamond chairs by Hire-Elegance Rentals – think ghost chairs in white! Definitely a new look for modern wedding design.

Our focus groups are always reserved for brides only so they can freely discuss all things wedding without family and friends commentary. As always they loved hearing other brides’ perspectives and challenges and quickly bonded. We gathered some great info to further help brides in the wedding planning process and we were able to educate many of the brides about the differences between wedding planning and coordination. All in all a great success! Stay tuned as we announce our next bride’s focus group here in Orange County, CA.

A BIG thank you to our raffle and gift bag sponsors: Kendra Scott, Diptyque, PaperPunched, MantraBand, Crate & BarrelFrost Me Gourmet, FIT Athletic, Soul Cycle, Flutter Magazine and Pendry San Diego. All brides took home a piece of jewelry thanks to Kendra Scott in San Diego, generous fragrance and lotion samples by Diptyque South Coast Plaza, the Spring Wedding issue of Flutter Magazine, two week membership to FIT health club in Downtown San Diego and two complimentary classes at Soul Cylcle Fashion Island. Frost Me Gourmet offered all our brides individually wrapped cupcakes! Such a delicious treat!

Special thanks to Pendry San Diego for hosting such an incredible event and to Brogen Jessup Photography for some of the event images below. Stay tuned for more wedding inspiration from our wedding shoot with lovely bride Schuyler and groom Emerson. We had the dream team of  wedding vendors including:  M Bride wedding dresses in La Jolla, Blooms By Breesa Lee, Berlynn Hair, Lindsey Jones Makeup, Tux Club, more pieces from Hire-Elegance; wedding planning by Something Lovely Weddings & Events and Brogen Jessup Photography.

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!!
