Eco Chic Luncheon at Shade Hotel Manhattan Beach

Shade Hotels are a “Luxury Boutique Hotel” brand with locations in Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach. Both properties embody the coastal lifestyle that Southern California is known for. The design style of both hotels have garnered them awards and been noticed by print publications for their modern aesthetic. Either one of these boutique hotels would serve as a perfect Destination Wedding location because they offer an all inclusive option for your sleeping rooms, event venues, restaurants, and nearby activities.ShadeHotel-57

Through my sister company 3 Wishes PR, I designed and planned an Eco-Chic luncheon for the Manhattan Beach location for wedding planners. The purpose of the event was to introduce the wedding industry to Shade Hotel’s eco conscious policies. My creative team of vendors not only helped to create a stylish and relaxing soiree, but each professional exhibited their own eco-friendly products and services. To take it a step further I asked my friend Kai Cohen of Green Canvas to speak about the service they offer to couples wanting to limit their carbon footprint on the environment in their weddings and events. Overall the event was a huge success for all involved. It was also a wonderful way for busy planners to be pampered and learn valuable new tools to add to their toolbox of exertise.

Like it’s sister property in Manhattan Beach, the vibe is contemporary coastal chic. Their tag line says it all “It’s Cooler In The Shade”! With eco friendly succulent walls in their wedding and event spaces, you have built in decor that you can feel great about. With engagement season in full swing and their wedding venues booking up, they wanted to share the celebration with you by hosting an INSTAGRAM ENGAGEMENT CONTEST. Two lucky couples will win $2500 toward their dream wedding at either location by simply posting a photo of their engagement celebration on Instagram and tagging #ShadeWeddings. Be sure to follow @ShadeWeddings for the announcement which will be made on January 11th. Check out these photos from both locations and then post away. And if you need a wedding planner I know both properties well, and I’d love to meet with you! Happy Planning.
