Karissa and Michael live in New York City but wanted to have their wedding in California since most of their families live here. They hired me for partial planning as they have planned about 50% of their wedding. This is where I come in with my other 50% expertise helping them with final vendors, and connecting everything together. Michael and Karissa are super detailed and love spreadsheets, one of which consists of a long list of “to-do” leading up to their wedding day. We had constant communication and they were not afraid of emailing me with questions or ideas on how to pull the perfect wedding that they envisioned.
Michael cannot hide his excitement at the sight of his bride!
So in love!
Michael’s parents are the sweetest and so much fun!
When at a Filipino wedding, lechon is a MUST!
Michael and his mother choreographed a super cute mother/son dance.
Same Day Edit to relive the wedding
Karissa + Michael, I cannot thank you enough for trusting me from the East Coast to take the reign on your wedding. It was a pleasure planning the wedding and making your vision come true. We wish you nothing but happiness and a lifetime of love, laughter and food adventure together.
