Rose + Tony’s wedding – 9.17.11

Rose and Tony are such a fun, goofy, loving couple. And I am so glad I was there to coordinate their wedding (even with the little hiccups).

When Rose contacted me to coordinate and help her along the way with her wedding, again I was a bit worried, not because I couldn’t do it but because I knew I would be burnt out 1 week after my own wedding. But that thought quickly left my mind when I met them in person. They were so nice and they even invited me to eat hot pot dinner! I was sold! 🙂 Besides, Rose and Tony are so mellow and laid-back, it was easy and such a pleasure to work with them.

Tony and his mom are so cute!

Then to the groom’s parents for the tea ceremony.

So much love!

The priest did a pretty funny homily for Rose and Tony.

After the ceremony, the bridal party traveled to Costa Mesa for some portraits.

You can totally see Rose and Tony goofiness in their portraits. So much fun!

Who knew there was such a beautiful place in Costa Mesa!

Onto the reception!!

I’m not usually one to complain and I really do get along with all vendors I work with but Seafood Palace 2 was quite difficult to work with.  This is the reason why I ALWAYS advise all bride and groom to have EVERYTHING in writing with locations/vendors and not just via conversation.

Asides from the chaos here and there with the location, the most important thing is that Rose and Tony had a good time during their reception.

Beautiful cake from Taylor Cake Creations.

The beautiful bridesmaids!

Rose changed into her ao dai for the table greetings.

Rose’s nephew, Justin, surprised Rose and Tony with a great performance and it was a HIT!

The cake cutting was 1 memorable part of the night. And….I absolutely LOVE Rose’s 3rd dress!

First dance as husband and wife.

The single ladies were so excited for the bouquet toss!

As were the single men for the garter toss! 🙂

At the end of the night, Rose surprised Tony with a beautiful piece on the piano.
