Thy and Eddie’s wedding 10.4.14

Thy is one of the easiest, carefree bride I’ve ever worked with. She was so easy going, it made my job way too easy. :) Eddie is the well known tattoo artist from OC Tattoo, Inc. You definitely cannot find a funnier person than him. Together, they make the perfect fun, loving couple and I couldn’t be luckier being their wedding day coordinator.

Big props to Dzien from DJZ Productions for helping the Bride & Groom’s friend who officiated their wedding and dealing with the dance floor vendor while I was busy running around doing things for the bride. I’m blessed to be working with awesome team of vendors who look out for each other.

Whitney and Kyle’s wedding 8.16.14

Whitney and Kyle are the sweetest, nicest , most caring, and thoughtful people ever. I know I say this about all of my couples but it’s the truth! I have the best clients! I am truly blessed and thankful to work with all of the amazing couples. When Whitney approached me about 10 months prior to the wedding inquiring about my services, my first thought was “Wow! She is tall!” I dwarfed next to her with my 5’2 itty bitty height. Our initial meeting was very productive but I wanted to give Whitney and Kyle some time to think about my services before they decided to hire me. They were still living in Boston  at the time and in the process of moving back to Orange County so I didn’t want them to feel pressured about booking me right away. When Whitney and Kyle were ready to book my services for day of coordination, I was elated! The Nixon Library is one of the venue I’ve been dreaming of working at for a while and to have the opportunity to do so for Whitney and Kyle’s wedding made it much more special.

We started the day with a traditional Vietnamese Tea Ceremony.

Nikki and Thien’s wedding 7.19.14

I met Nikki and Thien about a year prior to their wedding, Nikki is genuine, sweet and is a foodie while Thien couldn’t be any nicer and thoughtful. They booked me so I could help them plan the wedding along the way and there was a lot of hiccups throughout the planning process. Poor Nikki, she was a real trooper and spent many sleepless nights because she had to study and take her exam right up to the wedding day. Nikki and Thien went through a lot during their relationship and to see them tie the knot truly proves the love they have for each other.

Shari and Jay’s Wedding 5.24.14

Shari and Jay live in Arizona and our means of communication was via email throughout the whole wedding planning. I didn’t get to meet Jay and Shari until about a week or so prior to the wedding. Once you meet Shari, you can’t help but have a smile on your face, she is the sweetest and funniest person you’ll meet. Jay, on the other hand, is more on the quiet side but I think it’s because he wasn’t convinced that they would need a wedding coordinator on their wedding day. I found out later from Shari that he thinks hiring a wedding coordinator was one of the best decision Shari made. Glad KDWP passed the test!

So the story with the parents pictures, Shari and Jay were supposed to take pictures with the frames during their bridal portraits but didn’t get to it. When they decided to take a pictures holding the parents’ wedding frames up, we realized that they forgot them in the limo. The limo wasn’t able to come back to drop off the items because they were on their way to pick up another party, so I sent one of my team member to drive all the way up to West Covina/San Gabriel to meet up with the limo driver. We were very tight on time but my awesome assistant Lily made it right back on time for them to take a picture before the Grand Entrance.

Phuong and Scott’s Wedding 5.17.14

Phuong and Scott, these 2 lovebirds definitely know how to party! I remember when meeting with them, they told me to try to get things moving as quickly as possible so they will have more time to party and boy did they. :) They totally deserve it after all the hard work planning the wedding. The ceremony was held at the beautiful Japanese Garden in Long Beach and the weather was perfect for their nuptials. Phuong and Scott only booked my services for the reception to make sure everything is set up per their vision.

Even though I wasn’t present for Phuong and Scott’s wedding ceremony, I have to post photos as it is way too pretty no to.

Thank you Tin Photography for the great photos as always.
