Thi and Eric decided to book me about 1 month before the wedding. I was very excited about their wedding because it would be my 1st hands-on wedding as a professional.
Thi was a very detailed bride. She had everything done to the “T” and for a coordinator, it is very helpful to get direction on their vision and still add your own touch to it.
Their wedding was big (400 guests) and lavish, which was quite a task to take on as a brand new wedding planner/coordinator. We technically had about 3 hours to set up everything from vases, candles, chair, place cards etc… before the ceremony so it was a lot of running against the clock. I have to admit that 30 min before the ceremony starts, I really thought we were not going to make it on time.
I have to give props to the bridal party, especially the groomsmen for helping us out by guarding the doors until we finish setting up the ceremony area.
Enjoy the amazing photos from the wedding taken by Brandon Kidd. It was a real pleasure working with professional vendors in this field. I really do learn a lot from them.
Adorable pale soft pink shoes….*sigh*
The boys all looking dapper on their way to the bride’s parents house for the tea ceremony.
The couple then opted for a “first look” in her wedding gown.
Thi is beautiful in her gorgeous gown and Eric is looking very sharp and handsome.
They had a very big bridal party = 10 bridesmaids and 10 groomsmen. At times, it was hard to gather everybody around but they were very cooperative.
And now for the details…. This year has definitely been birds and bird cages theme.
The thumb leaf tree as guest sign-in was such a cute idea!
This is the final result! A bare tree turned into a full leaves tree to represent the love and support from their families and friends.
Their card cage 🙂
About 400 place card names to set up!
We almost didn’t make it on time for the ceremony. We were definitely 10 min behind schedule as we were still finishing setting up all the candles along the aisle.
Right before the bridal party, bride and groom were going to walk down the aisle, a guest knocked a set of candles to the floor. I had to rush in to pour the water in the vase, light up the candle and run back out to queue their entrance. Tough work!
Just Married!!! Congratulations Thi and Eric!
While everyone was having cocktail, we had 1 hour to flip the whole room into the reception.
Did I mention there was a LOT of candles to light???
The sweetheart table….so dreamy…
The cake was soooo pretty! All the candles on the aisle at the ceremony were moved to the stage where the cake and DJ was.
Thi and Eric’s first dance as husband and wife.
Before the night ended, they sneaked out for a few more photos. This is my favorite!
Thank you Thi and Eric for letting me make your wedding come true. It was an awesome experience working with such a great wedding party. They were so helpful! I wish you all the love and happiness for many years to come. You two deserve it all!
