Pacific Hills- Memorable Weddings

Pacific Hills- Memorable Weddings

Budget Saving Idea!


Want a really good way to save money on wedding costs?
If you are planning your wedding and you are on a budget, consider having your reception on Friday, Saturday afternoon or Sunday.  Most wedding vendors will offer some type of a discount during those days.  Pacific Hills offers deals for Friday and Sunday wedding receptions.
Is it going to be inconvenient for your guest and if your wedding is on a Friday, Saturday afternoon or Sunday? No! Since they will know your wedding date months in advance, they will have plenty of time to make travel arrangements or take a day or half day off from work. 
For saving a significant amount of money, think about planning your  wedding events on a Friday, Saturday afternoon or Sunday.

Congratulations to Zarina and Farhad!










Zarina and Farhad's reception was really stunning. The couple chose to keep the colors in the wedding and reception green with black accents.  As a nice compliment to the green and black, the the flowers were all white consisting of white roses, hydrangeas, and cymbidium orchids. The centerpieces were large black glass vases and some were short square black boxes with all white flowers with a damask ribbon around the box to match the damask table runners. Table runners are an inexpensive way to dress up a table. 

The long tables they chose to have in the middle of the ballroom really made the decor stand out.  It reminded me of those long lavish dinner tables set at a castle for a very important event. To spice up the entertainment they hired a band and a group of performers who performed two Bollywood dance pieces!
  
Tereasa from pirouettephotography.com did the photography.  Tereasa and her assistant set up well in advance and got great ballroom shots before the guests arrived. She shot wonderful pictures of the whole event. 

It was a blast coordinating the couples' reception and working with them to come up with the d├ęcor.

Added Decor

Candice's wedding was fabulous! She chose to add letters spelling "I Do" on the cake table, which was a great additional detail.  The DIY trend is really popular here because it allows the couple to put in a couple of touches that are important and unique to them!

The table cards, invites, and menu all matched. This is a must, keep the special touches constant throughout the wedding to create a more memorable event! For Candice's wedding, all the colors stayed within the palette of pinks and purples. Very good choice! Pacific Hills really encourages brides and grooms to put the special details into the event.

The Roosevelt in LA--Awesome Penthouse Suite!

We were thrilled to coordinate an event at the famous Hollywood Roosevelt this past weekend and what a venue it was!  One of the biggest treats was where I got a personal tour of the Suite that Vinny Chase from Entourage will be staying at. 


 The suite was 3000 square feet and three floors of pure opulence.   Famous notables such as Justin Beiber, Jay Z, Angelian Jolie and Brad Pitt are just some of the guests that have stayed there.  The room runs $5000 a night and the hotel manager told me that it is booked every Friday, Saturday and Sunday...WOW!! 


With regards to some rumors of what is going to happen on the final season of Entourage, someone dies, someone goes to jail and someone gets married. 


Check out the awesome pictures from the suite!
