Trini and Phong’s wedding 11.17.12

What can I say about Trini and Phong’s wedding besides W.O.W!!! It is by far the best wedding that KDWP has coordinated! At our 1st KDWP holiday dinner, Trini and Phong were voted Favorite Couple, Best Wedding, Best Decoration! At the initial meeting with Trini and Phong, I fell in love with them! Trini described her wedding to me and what she envisioned, I was hoping that I would be able to pull off everything she had in mind. I was a bit anxious because Trini had BIG ideas and she totally pulled it off! Trini and Phong met during Thieu Nhi (Vietnamese Eucharistic Youth Society), their love for each other is undeniable. Phong is truly an amazing guy and would put all of the groom out there to shame. Throughout the day, I can see how Trini and Phong are loved by their family and friends, they thought of everything and it truly was an experience I would never forget.

Trini and Phong’s wedding started bright and early. This was a very long wedding for me starting at 6 am since the tea ceremony was in Winnetka (a good 1hr30 min from OC). I remember Trini telling me that she hopes it wouldn’t rain because she hates the rain. Unfortunately, I can’t control mother nature and rain started coming down hard as soon as the tea ceremony started. I kept telling her that rain means good luck on wedding day. :)

After the Tea Ceremony, I made my way to the church for set up.

There were a lot of details that Trini wanted done for the ceremony. I usually work by myself in the morning so it was a lot of running under the rain to get things done on time.

Trini and Phong’s garden theme wedding was to die for! It was simply amazing and lot of them were D.I.Y by Trini and Phong themselves!

We were on a time crunch to set everything and I can’t believe we pulled it off on time! I’m so glad that Trini and Phong were happy with the results.

So many details!

Sophia and James’ wedding 8.25.12

I met Sophia at Thi and Eric’s wedding, she was 1 of Thi’s 10 bridesmaids. When Sophia contacted me to coordinate her wedding, I was very happy for her upcoming nuptials and it’s always good to see faces from previous weddings.

James and Sophia got ready at their house in different rooms. I have to say, Sophia’s parents house and her house are AMAZING!

Trinity and David’s wedding 5.26.12

Trinity and David live in Arizona and had their wedding in OC because all of their family and friends are here. Trinity and I hit up instantly on our first consultation, which is always a good sign. :) They are by far the nicest couple that KDWP had worked with (yes, I say that about all my couples but truly, I have been blessed with the best bride and groom EVER!!!). I didn’t get to meet David until a month prior to their wedding but I absolutely understand why Trinity fell in love with him. He is such a sweetheart and is super funny! Trinity is a beautiful person inside and out and it wasn’t hard for David to fall in love with her either.

Since their wedding was 1 month prior to my due date, Trinity and David took such good care of me.  They went to McDonald’s and got me hamburger! I remember Trinity came up to me with a hamburger and told me “please feed my baby, you are working too hard” and David gently (forcefully) sat me down on a chair and make sure that I ate. I mean….how can I not love these 2!!! Because of my pregnancy, their wedding was the 1st wedding where KDWP has decided to expand and take on interns.

Eva and Jason’s wedding 8.11.12

Jason is my husband’s cousin and when Eva and Jason approached me to help with the wedding, I was more than happy because that’s what family do. I suggested the Bowers Museum to  them as they were looking for venues. After a site visit, they fell in love with it and decided to book it.

As a family member, I was a guest more than the coordinator but I couldn’t help running around making sure everything went OK while the family kept telling me to enjoy the party. It is also a bit more nerve-wracking working on a family wedding because your work  is more scrutinized. However, seeing all the in-law family again is always fun as it feels more like a big party/get-together than a wedding.

It is at Eva and Jason’s wedding that KDWP’s mascot (aka. Riley) made an appearance. He was a total hit! :)

Yellow is such a good color to have for a summer wedding. It is so vibrant, you can’t help being happy around that color.

Michelle and John’s wedding 7.21.12

Michelle is another friend of my little sister. I’ve always known her as Thao and seeing her getting married just shows how time flies. These little girls that I’ve known for decades are now full grown women who are getting married. It’s quite bittersweet for me. Seeing how John adores Michelle, I knew she was in good hands. :)

Tiffany and Tam’s wedding 7.7.12

I was a bit worried that baby Riley was going to be late since my due date was 1 week prior to Tiffany and Tam’s wedding. I scheduled a couple of back ups just in case I was in labor on their wedding date but Thank God, Baby Riley arrived on time. It was a little difficult for me since I was still in pain and Riley was just 1 week old but  nothing was going to stop KDWP!

Tiffany is my sister’s friend so I’ve known her since she was a little girl! When she approached me to coordinate her wedding, I felt very very old. I mean in my eyes, she was still this little girl that was hanging out with my sister and she is now getting married!! Tiffany planned the whole wedding on her own (with a little bit of my help) since Tam is in Texas. She truly did an amazing job!
