Nancy + Wayne’s wedding 9.12.15

The beauty of technology -my only form of communication with Nancy and Wayne was through emails and phone conversations leading up to the wedding day. They both live in San Diego so I didn’t get to meet them until rehearsal day. I dwarfed standing next to Wayne since he is such a tall guy and Nancy is super sweet and easy going. I’m glad I got to work on their big wedding (close to 500 guests) and helping them execute their vision of the wedding day.

Ann and Cory’s wedding 9.26.15

Ann and Cory, this sweet couple of mine, found my services thanks to Yelp in January. At the time, Ann lives and works in San Jose while Cory was finishing school in San Diego. They needed someone in Orange County to do partial planning for them and I was more than happy to help them in the 9 months that we had to plan the wedding. I looked for venues, set them up with vendors that would fit their personality and reviewed all proposals. Cognizant of their budget, I crossed out many items in vendor proposals that they thought they needed or wanted. It was a pleasure working with Ann and Cory as they were so easy going. Our communication was mainly via emails and whenever they were in town, I crammed as many meetings with vendors as possible to make most of their time. I still had to leave some room for them to eat because they love to eat and Ann CAN eat! They always try to drag me out to eat with them when they were in Orange County but I had to refuse a couple of times since I was busy working weddings.

Diana and Tony’s wedding 9.4.15

Diana and Tony’s wedding ranks as one of my top 5 favorite weddings that I’ve had the honor to coordinate. I don’t take a lot of Friday weddings (since I have a full time job too) but when I do it’s because the couple is special to me. I’ve known Tony through Thao and Robert’s wedding back in 2010 as he was their groomsmen. When Tony and Diana contacted me to use my services for their wedding, it was such a treat for me because 1. they know a lot of people in the business and for them to hire me was truly an honor; 2. I knew their wedding would look beautiful because their taste is impeccable and 3. I would get to see a lot of familiar faces and it’s always a pleasure seeing all the people I’m friends with on Facebook and Instagram🙂

Honey Honey Photography pictures of Diana and Tony’s wedding are truly amazing. It’s the true epitome of how beautiful the couple and wedding is. What an honor to be working with such talents. I will let the pictures speak for themselves.

Diana is so beautiful, I just have to post another picture of this beauty!

The Tea Ceremony followed the Church Ceremony.

I tell all my clients not to worry about the order of events and to make things work for them. It is THEIR wedding day after all and as long as they incorporate some tradition into the wedding day, all is fine.

Moments before entering the Tea Ceremony, I sewed a button on a groomsman jacket. I made it just in time!

Did I mention how much I love this wedding??? Swooning over everything! The details, D.I.Y, rustic look, flowers by Pink, The Little Flower Shop! I mean how can you not??

dianaandtony-wedding-801

I remember how we had a hard time making the place cards stay into the slots of the branches. We ended up using glue to make them hold in place. No straightening the place cards either, it makes it look more natural and rustic. Totally in line with the feel and decorations of the wedding.

Lea and Allan’s wedding 7.11.14

For Lea and Allan’s wedding, my only involvement was more of the background work with the timeline, vendor list etc…Our Lead Assistant, Ying, was in charge of everything on the day of, even contacting and confirming with all of the vendors the week of the wedding. It was nice for a change to sit back and watch my team work and see what they have learned from working with me on previous events. I have total confidence in all of my lead assistant and know that they will keep true to our KDWP brand.

From Ying:

Lea and Allan , one of the most patient, loveliest and care – free couples ever!  I can see how much they compliment each other and why they are so in love. They shared so much love with family and friends and it truly shined through at their wedding.  Their wedding was such a treat to coordinate because Lea had fun with it. It was an honor to be their lead coordinator for the day! Wishing them a lifetime full of happiness and love together.

Wedding 5.30.15

This couple wants to remain anonymous so I will mainly blog about the details of the wedding. I have to say though, this must be the biggest bridal party I have ever worked with and it was definitely challenging at times trying to get a total of 24 bridesmaids and groomsmen to follow instruction all at once since there were so many of them to keep track of.

Chantel and Ryan’s wedding 5.16.15

I received a call from Chantel 2 weeks prior to the wedding to coordinate their wedding. Usually, I wouldn’t take a wedding on such a short notice because I feel like it will set me up to fail as it doesn’t give me much time to prepare. However, after talking to Chantel, I was convinced I could pull her wedding off. Chantel and Ryan’s wedding was only for about 40 close friends and family so it was definitely doable.

I lived in Lake Forest for a year and I never knew of this little park tucked in the shopping center. Chantel and Ryan did great at finding this little hidden gem.
