Huntington Beach, CA 9260
Danielle at the Waterfront Hilton made our dream wedding a reality. Huntington Beach is very near & dear to us and it was so meaningful to be able to get married here! This hotel is luxurious but also intimate so that you don't get lost in a sea of ballrooms. Danielle is super responsive and nowadays I greatly appreciate people who are effective communicators, especially over email. She is also really sweet and a true professional! It was a beautiful day to get married at the Gazebo and the Pacific Ballroom/Terrace overlooking the ocean is truly breathtaking. The service here is incredible and the entire staff really took care of us (valet, bell service, etc.) The banquet manager, Church, was so accommodating and made sure we got to eat the dinner that we so carefully selected, filled all our glasses at all times, and took care of our every need. On top of that he is just a really cool guy! We love going back here and reliving the happiest day of our lives.

From the moment I met Kelly at her studio in Pasadena for my makeup trial, I knew she was awesome! I booked her right away for my wedding and everybody looked gorgeous! The bridal party & mothers looked amazing and I received a ton of compliments on my hair & makeup on our special day. Kelly and Helen were prompt and even called to give me an update in the morning. They were both so fun to talk to and were very calming in the "getting ready" room. Kelly is a true pro and knows exactly how to stay on schedule and time everything perfectly. The touchup kit came in handy too after all the hug/hug, kiss/kiss, cry/cry. =D I only wish I could have used her for my engagement session too. When it comes to hair & makeup (especially asian makeup), Kelly & her team are the best in the business!
Terry's lighting set an amazing romantic ambiance during our wedding reception! He truly made the room "ours" with 24 blue LED uplights, a custom gobo with our own artwork, and a special "water effect" light that was perfect for our aqua themed wedding. He went above & beyond by coordinating with our DJ to time the lighting of our first dance/surprise dance. His lighting cues were on point and he was able to give the uplights a "strobe" effect during key points of our performance. We requested to keep the gobo "plate" as a keepsake and he sent it us right away after we got back from our honeymoon. Thank you Terry!!!
