Vendor Spotlight – Zoom Theory Photography

Posted February 28, 2012 by Fantasea Yachts Team

You’ve spent months planning your event, had the time of your life enjoying it and every time you look at your pictures you get to re-live it!

Pictures = Memories… and that’s why choosing the right photographer is so important!

Zoom Theory

Zoom Theory

Zoom Theory is one of FantaSea Yachts premiere photographers for many reasons. Although it’s only been 3 years since the inception of Zoom Theory, Amanda and Meredith have a history exceeding 10+ years. Their combined background covers everything from photographing a rock band tour through Europe to working in a portrait studio, studying fine art and cultivating the perfect image.

Zoom Theory doesn’t just take pictures; they document your story with a balance of journalistic imagery and traditional wedding formalities. Their style will always be evolving as they grow, learn and find new inspiration through their clients.

When I asked Amanda and Meredith what they loved most about their job, you can hear in their responses how much they love what they do:

“I LOVE making women look beautiful and delivering a product to couples that they will enjoy, cherish and share forever. –Amanda”

“I enjoy meeting new couples and telling their unique story in a beautiful way. Capturing moments and love gives me goose-bumps. Pushing myself to deliver something very special for each client keeps me driven and inspired. Being behind my camera is a thrill everyday! –Meredith”

Whether Meredith and Amanda are capturing your memories in our Yacht Club, onboard Dandeana, RegentSea or FantaSea One they will live on for a lifetime…and to make sure of that…Zoom Theory gives each client a one-of-a-kind portrait (see below) that can be displayed as an art piece in your home.

Vendor Spotlight – Elegant Designs Specialty Linen

Posted February 24, 2012 by Fantasea Yachts Team


You have your venue…now the fun begins and it’s time to choose your linens & other décor!

Elegant Designs, our vendor spotlight of the week, has worked with FantaSea for over 10 years and they are our number one choice for event linen and chair upgrades. In addition to having experienced and knowledgeable staff, their fabrics are high quality and the options available to you are endless….if they don’t have what you’re looking for they will custom make it for you!!

The owner of Elegant Designs, Jannette Galindo, never thought making one chair cover 17 years ago would turn into owning one of the most successful event linen companies in Los Angeles…and that’s exactly what happened! Back in 1995 Jannette made chair covers for a family friend; the venue loved them and asked her to produce more for the venue to sell. Jannette continued to push herself, becoming more creative with fabrics & designs and Elegant Designs was born.

FantaSea Yachts stays on top of the most current styles and Jannette Galindo/ Elegant Designs continues to be one of our top resources in assisting us achieve that goal; which then guides us in knowing what will best compliment our venues Dandeana, RegentSea, FantaSea One and our Yacht Club.

Some things to look for this year…along with the ever-popular Chiavari Chairs, some up & coming favorites are pipe and drape (yes…making a HUGE comeback this year), elaborate chair covers and color schemes of light silver & gunmetal, royal & indigo blues and jewel tones (fuchsia, teal, turquoise, blue & red combined).

We at FantaSea send a big Thank You to Jannette Galindo and the team at Elegant Designs for your creativity and dedication!

February/March of each year is when Elegant Designs Specialty Linen launches their newest, latest & greatest…

Sleepover at Teresa's“Trust”  the single best word that comes to mind.  Last Saturday my five your old daughter, Liora, had her first “Sleep Over”.   It was at the home of Teresa MacPherson one of our Event Planners here at FantaSea Yachts.  Joining Teresa for a rare non-working Saturday night, was Jasmine Lee our General Manager and Kelsey Ray our newest Event Planner and a great addition to our team at FantaSea.   As any parent would say, our children are our most precious.    There was not one moment that I had any fears or doubts and seeing Liora’s beaming face in the morning was not a relief but an added joy.

I have so much personal and professional trust and confidence in our FantaSea team.  When I open our doors each day, I trust our team with my family’s business and yachts.  I trust them to treat our clients fairly and our captains to skipper our yachts safely.  Our FantaSea team has preformed their magic for many of my families and friends life moments, high and low.  In fact, Stephanie and I confidently placed our own wedding in the hands of  Jasmine and our FantaSea team now almost 9 years ago.

In an age of uncertainty, I am extremely grateful for the great comfort to be able to rely on such a trustworthy and capable team here at FantaSea Yachts.   Thank you.
