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!

I love the rustic old feel of the San Gabriel Mission Church.
Sweet moment between a father and a daughter.
Thank you for the behind the scene photo Thao Vu!
Married!!! Congratulations Mary and Hung!
The garden behind the church was a great backdrop for photos.
Since the church ceremony was so early in the morning, we had the tea ceremony after it.
I transported these flowers from the church to the tea ceremony.
The wedding party took pictures at the Huntington Beach Park.
Meanwhile, at the reception…
