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