that's all i can say. i recently lunched at the four seasons hotel in westlake village, and found it so luxurious, so spectacular, so serene, and the staff so generously stellar that i have no other words. if you're a platinum bride — or you would just like your wedding day to be the one time you genuinely go all out — you must consider the four seasons hotel.
don't get me wrong, the four seasons on doheny in los angeles is also outrageously perfect. but there was something of a resort feel to westlake, and the easy drive from l.a. made it feel like a genuine escape — perfect for a destination wedding without all the travel hassle.
my own wedding took place not far from the four seasons, and if the hotel had been available for me on my day, there's no question i would have jumped at booking this place. grrr!
so, why the blog? 2009 wedding season is fast approaching, and i know i was already booking my venue for my summer wedding at this point — so take note, brides. the four seasons westlake will soon require all brides who book weddings with them to hire a professional wedding planner to manage the often unwieldy battalion of vendors that are scheduled to parade through the place.
get while the gettin's good, my friends.
