Despite the torrents of rain assaulting Los Angeles, last night was way too cool for school. The evening started with a tasting for one of my May weddings at the new faaaabulous West Hollywood hotel The London. We actually saw the infamous chef Gordon Ramsay as we were tasting in a private room in his restaurant. I don’t watch Hell’s Kitchen, but I’m familiar with his persona, and I heard from a good source last night that it’s not an act!
The London is unbelievably beautiful. I’m a texture loving person and every surface in that building I just want to pet and caress. After Jessie and Zack chose their yummy looking menu, we talked linens, chairs, lighting, and logistics. It is going to be a FABULOUS wedding!
After I left The London I headed over to the new SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills for the Hip Hostess Series hosted by wonderful The Hostess With The Mostest blog and Chambord liquor. Yet another gorgeous new hotel!
Harmony Walton, editor of getmarried.com and owner of The Bridal Bar introduced me to Hostess With the Mostess’ owner Jennifer Sbranti and I fell in love with her a little bit more when she told me that her strapless black dress was from Forever 21 and the feather in her hair from Michael’s Craft stores! I love a girl who can rock it without feeling the pressure to wear some name brand and has the guts to say it! My kind of girl.
The event at the SLS was great, I picked up some good tips from Jennifer when she spoke about entertaining, and the Chambord and Champagne drink that I had was yummy.
I guess last night was one of the few days where being a wedding planner actually felt a little glamorous. Today I’m back in my PJ’s in front of my computer…
