Kathy & JP, Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach Resort & Club



Kathy & JP’s wedding will always have a special place in our hearts! They are the sweetest couple and we are so happy for them to finally be married! Like many other couples, Kathy & JP had to postpone their wedding due to you know what… However, it was a blessing in disguise for them because we were able to change the venue to align more with their vision and we had more time to truly make their wedding dreams come true!

From the start, Kathy wanted big, bold, beautiful and truly romantic, and that is exactly what we brought to life with design! We had a classic ceremony design with all white florals. Then moved to cocktail hour with pops of red and black which hinted towards the next design. When guests walked into the reception ballroom, they were completely transported into a whole bold and beautiful design! We covered the entire room with red and black, including red draping and a large black and red rose dance floor. Of course, we could not finish the room without tons of candlelight and red roses galore!

Kathy & JP definitely know how to throw a party! To the ice luge signature cocktails, and fun music selection, the party never ended! The dance floor was always full, and the guests were having the time of their lives. The love that they have for each other is so inspiring, and we are wishing them nothing but the best in this exciting new chapter! And cheers to JP for signing on with the Seattle Mariners for another 5 amazing years! Go Mariners!
