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!

Bride, Groom and wedding party got ready at the Langham Hotel in Pasadena.

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.

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.

Kathy and Paul’s wedding 3.9.13

Kathy and Paul are such a sweet couple. Kathy is very soft spoken and Paul adores and cares about her deeply. I could see it when I met with them a few times.  Their wedding was sweet, simple and traditional. I actually loved that they incorporated a little bit of Japanese feel into their wedding.  It was very refreshing  working a wedding without all the frills and crazy setup. The wedding ended late afternoon and it was so odd to me that I didn’t even know what to do for the rest of the day.

Thank you to Linda Lewis Photography for providing the beautiful photos for me to recap.

Thuy and Cuong’s wedding 12.15.12

Thanks to my previous brides and word of mouth, Thuy and Cuong called me right after our initial meeting to book my services! They are one of the most loving couples I’ve met and the love that they share is contagious! They got married right around Christmas so the festive spirit was felt throughout the day with Christmas decorations and Christmas Trees and balls everywhere. It was also a gorgeous day for a winter wedding!

Love these moments between the bride and her bridesmaids.

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!
