Thanh and Duc’s Wedding 9.28.13

The outpouring of love for Thanh and Duc on their wedding day was contagious. They had family flying from almost all over the world to attend their wedding. You cannot help but love Thanh + Duc once you get to know them and I was lucky that I got to be by their side during the whole planning process. They truly are the sweetest, most loving couple.

Jennifer and Chung’s Wedding 9.21.13

Jennifer and Chung’s wedding was the 4th wedding out of 5 weddings back to back. Jennifer contacted me about a year and a half prior to her wedding, she loves Snoopy and wanted to get married at Knott’s Berry Farm so Snoopy could be part of their wedding day. Since Jennifer and Chung were stationed in Japan (they are both dentists in the military), they needed someone in Orange County to visit the location, meet with clients etc…and I was the person they entrusted me with. I was surprised that KDWP name traveled all the way to Japan and I am glad that I got to meet Jennifer and Chung. They are a lovely couple who definitely is loved by their family and friends.

Jennifer and Chung were already married in Japan but they wanted to renew their commitment in front of all their friends and family.

Hieu and Hung’s Wedding 9.14.13

1st post of the year 2014. Happy New Year Everyone! Each year, I make the resolution to blog quicker but with a full time job and a toddler who requests your attention all the time, it’s a challenge. Just getting a little bit of time to blog is precious to me.

Hieu and Hung live in the Bay area and booked my services about a year prior to their wedding. They saw my name on photographers’ blog and decided to contact me. Since most of Hung’s family live in Orange County, they decided to have their wedding here. When we first met, I thought they were the nicest, most down to earth couple that I’ve met. Hieu was very organized and knew exactly what she wanted for the wedding, it was such a pleasure working with her. While working their wedding, you can see how their family and friend’s adore them. Hieu and Hung’s wedding marks # 3 of 5 weddings back to back. Excited to have had the chance to work with Lin and Jirsa Photography, they captured the whole wedding beautifully.

Gwenyth and Kevin’s Wedding 8.31.13

This wedding was the start of the crazy 5 back to back weddings in a row for KDWP.

Gwenyth and Kevin are 2 wonderful loving people who made sure that all of their guests had a memorable day. It is by far the biggest and most beautiful wedding KDWP has worked on so far. It was one lavish extravagant wedding that we will never forget. I have to admit that it was quite challenging at times but we pulled it through even though we encountered some hiccups along the way. Gwenyth and Kevin booked my services about 1 month prior to the wedding. I was hesitant to accept the booking at first because it didn’t give me much time to prep before the wedding. I took on the last minute coordination after meeting with Gwenyth and Kevin and couldn’t refuse after they described to me the vision they had for their wedding day. I was really really nervous as the wedding day was looming closer, there was so much to do yet so little time left. Gwenyth and Kevin’s wedding definitely put my wedding expertise, planning and coordination to the test. I had to do a lot of quick thinking and relied on my team to work extremely fast. Poor Gwenyth and Kevin had a lot of headache too, their original photographer quit on them 1 week prior to the wedding. It was a mad rush to find a last minute photographer during peak wedding season. Luckily, a good friend of them stepped up to the plate to save the day. Big thanks to Allan Le Photography for working so hard and delivering amazing photos.

Yes, it was one of the most stressful night of my life but in the end, getting a hug from Gwen and Kevin to thank us for a great job we did meant the world to us. It made for all the running around, being behind schedule and resolving all of the hiccups worth it. Gwenyth and Kevin, thank you so much for letting my team and I be part of your beautiful wedding. You guys definitely know how to throw a party! We wish you many wonderful years of happiness together. Keep posting photos of the food you are eating in Vegas! I live vicariously through you.

Mary and Hung’s Wedding 7.13.13

Last year I conducted a contest on Facebook to have Kelly Duprat Wedding Planner page hit 500 Likes (we were at about 425 likes).  The winner would win a FREE day of coordination by yours truly. Many have entered the contest but I could see 1 particular bride who was hustling to get “likes” from family and friends.  I couldn’t be happier that Mary and Hung won the contest, they were such a nice couple and their little boy is the cutest! Mary planned her wedding for a while and it turned out absolutely stunning!

As an added bonus, I got to work with Thao Vu Photography and 8 Kinds of Smiles, the nicest and easiest people to work with in the industry! It feels like we’re a big family when I get the chance to work along side them at weddings. Thank you to Thao Vu Photography for always providing gorgeous photos. Props to Thao and Katie B for coming right back to work after just giving birth! I know first hand how hard it is on your body!

Alvina and Daniel’s wedding 6.22.13

Alvina and Daniel are young, sweet, loving and very dedicated to being Christians. In fact, with the help of friends, Daniel surprised Alvina with his proposal on Church grounds! This is the first wedding where I left early and entrusted my team to conduct the reception. They handled everything with class and professionalism. Kayla, KDWP lead coordinator, even helped the groom when he was uncomfortable during the reception because of the cramped space and guests surrounding him.

I had the pleasure to work with Steve Hoffmann of Hoffmann Photographer who captured beautiful images of the wedding.

The wedding party started at the Fullerton Arboretum for a First Look and portraits.

One of the candle holder broke during transportation so I had to use tape to stick everything together. I was so nervous the whole ceremony, afraid that the tape wouldn’t hold and the candle will be knocked off. Thankfully, everything held together.

Lanny and Richard’s wedding 5.25.13

Lanny and Richard had a gorgeous wedding on a sunny May day. Lanny and Richard are so cute together (and they are so tall too), they were a sweet loving couple and everyone had a great time at their wedding. Lanny hired me only for the reception part of the day since she didn’t need me in the morning for tea ceremony or church ceremony. However, I am including photos from the morning too since Carissa Woo photographed such beautiful pictures.
