Happy 1 Year Anniversary Anna and David!
August 18, 2018 was quite the popular date! I turned down a handful of weddings for that date. Tiffany booked our services 1 year in advance knowing that this date was going to be a popular one. Some of you might be familiar with Tiffany, she’s been the wedding coordinator at the former St. Callistus and now Christ Cathedral. She was my wedding Church Coordinator back in 2011. Having Tiffany reach out to me for her wedding was a blessing and honor as she has worked with a lot of wedding planners and coordinators in Orange County.
Tiffany and Craig actually met at a wedding that Tiffany was coordinating at the church. Craig was one of the groomsman and he made his move on Tiffany. It was just fate that they met at the church and are now married.
Tiffany worked with a lot of priests in the Catholic Church so there was about 10 priests in attendance at the wedding.
Can you believe that all of Tiffany’s bridesmaids are her nieces?
Chinese people say that the number “8” is a lucky number, unfortunately for us, there was a lot of hiccups that we needed to jump through on that particular day. Among many problems we encountered, the hotel was under construction so they did not let us have the fog machine during the 1st dance at the last minute even though we cleared everything with them prior. The dance floor vendor’s car broke down near San Bernardino so they arrived 30 min before doors were to be opened for reception and they brought the incorrect floor decal. Guests kept knocking down the candles walkway that Tiffany really wanted to have. To top it all off, valet couldn’t find one of the bridesmaid’s car keys at the end of the night. Lots of things were out of our control at times and we had to do a lot of damage control but we made sure that everything went down without stressing Tiffany and Craig. They were great troopers and didn’t let any of these “hiccups” damper their joyous day as we updated them as much as possible.
The wedding ended up being beautiful and no one really noticed the behind-the-scenes. That’s what we are here for 🙂
Thank you Tiffany and Craig for being such a great understanding couple! It sure was a day to remember! We can’t thank you enough for everything and for trusting our team to carry out your wedding day vision. We wish you all the best and a lifetime of happiness!

Yannine and Glenn are long time friends of my husband. They didn’t originally have a lavish wedding so at their 10 year mark, they threw one big wedding anniversary surrounded by their family and friends. All the decorations were DIY by the bride and groom and we set almost everything up the night before. The food was ordered from different locations (their favorite places) and family and friends volunteered to pick everything up. It was one big family and friends gathering celebrating Yannine and Glenn.
From Winnie, Jr. Coordinator:
Yannine and Glenn’s BIG DAY wasn’t your typical wedding but rather their 10 YEAR wedding anniversary! They wanted to spend this special moment in time with all of their family, friends, and most importantly daughter, Celezte.
For their special day the biggest thing they emphasized that they wanted was to make sure that they got to have FUN and enjoy everything with everyone. They weren’t too caught up in all the details and routine of your typical wedding. They were super sweet and laid back and simply went with the flow of things. As long as everyone and them were having fun that was all that mattered.
Of course, on our side of things the day did not go without a few hiccups but that is expected when planning an event. Between receiving some late decor, late access to the venue, an issue with seating arrangements, and missing family we had our hand fulls. But that is why we are there. Being quick on your feet when things go array comes with the territory. Thankfully we were able to execute everything without disturbing the couple’s special day which allowed them to enjoy it all.
With tons of food, dancing, and laughter Yannine and Glenn’s 10 year anniversary definitely was one, big party full of love for the happy couple. Hearing them say they had tons of fun by the end of the night reassured me that everything went well and that we did our job. Knowing that is what puts a smile on our faces with a feeling of accomplishment.
Peek-a-boo from Celezte, their daughter. 😀

When Victoria and Aneesh booked our services for partial planning, they only had a date in mind but no location yet. We had about 5 months to plan, booking a couple more vendors and finding the location for them as venues get booked up fairly fast in the summer. We looked at several locations and they decided to have their wedding at the Marriott Fullerton. I’m glad everything worked even though we hit a few snags along the way. Victoria and Aneesh opted for a tea ceremony and a traditional Indian ceremony. I love when cultures blend!
Love the vibrant colors of the Indian Ceremony.

Victoria and Aneesh – Thank you so much for letting us be part of your wedding journey. It was truly an honor watching the 2 of you tie the knot. I’ve learned so much on Indian weddings. We wish you a lifetime of happiness and just the best for everything!
