After a disastrous attempt to plan a pandemic wedding overseas in St. Lucia, we reset in January 2021 and set our sights on a domestic destination wedding. After researching various beach destinations and general pricing, we settled on the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach and truly, it was the best decision we could've made.
Not only was this a beautiful venue, but Courtney (who has since left) made planning SO. EASY. Their list of preferred vendors is A+ and truly, they are consummate professionals who can help you to plan your dream wedding with ease.
As evidenced by all the photos in this post, Jordana is a naturally-gifted storyteller. She was quite flexible with pricing, able to customize a package for us that made it possible to get our dream day captured on camera.
Lisa's name may be funny and she is a genuine, warm person, but make no mistake: she knows her stuff. The moment I talked to her, I knew she'd be the wedding planner to help us get down the aisle stress-free and she delivered.
Shealynn heard our vision once and made the florals a seamless, high-quality experience. She does weddings all the time and can help you create beautiful pieces without breaking the bank.
It's worth noting that this gorgeous cake was truly the most delicious cake we'd ever had. Collectively. And we were sorry to have to leave any behind (as you usually do with destination weddings).
Vanessa ensured the entire bridal party's makeup was flawless. She was fast, pleasant and very professional.
Michele gave simple, classic ringlets that gave me one less thing to worry about on this special day.
Amanda ensured we got the right dress (even though this was the VERY first one we tried on) and helped build the excitement of the day. John Emily Studio (Charlotte) made the fit wedding-day ready!
DJ Sandok gave us the perfect R&B and hip-hop vibes to set the mood, Jack at TMMPRO ensured we had celebrity-style lighting and Robert at Second Sing flawlessly recorded our ceremony so we can look back on it for years to come.
Make your special day easier. Use these vendors that both specialize in results and know what they're doing.
