4th of July Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel Wedding of Helen & Mike
Just perfect! What can I say. Helen and Mike’s wedding was just perfect! What more can you ask for, perfect weather on the bluffs of Salt Creek Beach at the Ritz Carlton on the 4th of July. Helen was a doll, such a cutie pie, and Mike tall and handsome and funny as heck. Their parents were so very hospitable too. Their planner, Beth Helmstetter Events knows how to put on fantasic events, both elegant and beautiful, mixed with fun and fun and more fun. Cheesy Photo booths caught the above pics of Janey & Mark of Maryjane Photography and me. Love working with these guys. We know how to work around eachother seemlessly. The Ritz is unbelievable, besides having terrific views and banquet rooms and top notch service, staff and cuisine, the know how to treat their vendors, well Beth Helmstetter no doubt had some major pull because we got to eat like kings there. They served us vendors Lobster, scallops, sushi, mini burgers, lamb chops, man we got spoiled!!! Therefore, I’m available to shoot at the Ritz Carlton anytime, haha. Also worked with DJ Dash from Dash Entertainment for the first time, and the guy knows how to bring the dance floor to life…Big Time!
Such a fun wedding, can’t wait to show you the Film I shot in Super 8mm. Meanwhile, Janey said she’d send me the link to her slideshow so I can share that with you while you’re waiting. Hurry up Janey. We all want to see your pics!
About my favorite quartet, Supernova. Pure awesome classic quality perfectly mixed with thumping to tapping performance. Hands down My favorites!!! They rocked Helen and Mike’s wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and a special performance made custom for the bride and groom during reception. These guys ROCK!!!!! I mean it.
Little extra tidbit about me?…… Owe,kaye, well, besides a very posh dinner meeting with the Junebug Girls about 6 months ago, and now last night-Helen and Mike’s 4th of July wedding here at the Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel, it’s been about 15 years since…yep, I used to work there as a banquet server. It was my night job, paid good too. It was so nostalgic being there again in the same ballrooms where I used to serve fancy dinners to celebrities and executives in white gloves and a tuxedo. In fact one banquet manager Linda and bartender Byron still work there and we had a brief old times style reunion and they still look exactly the same. Amazing!
