    PrimaDonna Makeover Wedding Hair & Makeup

    I was honored to be invited to take part in a Wedding Fair Show 2 weeks ago, at the Crown Plaza Cabana Hotel in Palo Alto, Ca. Which I enjoyed very much working on all the new brides to be with Hair & Make-up. Wow what a beautiful Hotel with the Hollywood flair and detail, which in 1962 the movie star Doris Day owned. The wedding fair was a Big hit. Diane did a wonderful job putting it all together. The Cabana Hotel is a stunning place to have a wedding or any special event. I highly recommend the Crown Plaza Cabana Hotel in Palo Alto, Ca. 5 star

    My trio entertained at the Crowne Plaza Cabana's wedding fair last Sunday. What a sensational afternoon! Highlights featured a dazzling fashion show and an informative panel discussion about wedding preparations a bride can "do herself". In addition, dozens of top event professionals displayed their services and spoke with guests circulating in the hotel's gorgeous ballroom. It was wonderful to be part of an outstanding showcase and work with the hotel's Catering and Events team, particularly Diana Wittenbrock and Sherleen Eng. Because too many shows at other facilities are so-so these days, this one really stands out. Every presentation was superb, showing what a difference it makes when EVERYONE involved pays special attention to the finest details. My band works at the Crowne Plaza Cabana often, and we've come to expect a flawless celebration every time.
