Thy and Eddie’s wedding 10.4.14

Thy is one of the easiest, carefree bride I’ve ever worked with. She was so easy going, it made my job way too easy. πŸ™‚ Eddie is the well known tattoo artist from OC Tattoo, Inc. You definitely cannot find a funnier person than him. Together, they make the perfect fun, loving couple and I couldn’t be luckier being their wedding day coordinator.

Big props to Dzien from DJZ Productions for helping the Bride & Groom’s friend who officiated their wedding and dealing with the dance floor vendor while I was busy running around doing things for the bride. I’m blessed to be working with awesome team of vendors who look out for each other.

Michelle and John’s wedding 7.21.12

Michelle is another friend of my little sister. I’ve always known her as Thao and seeing her getting married just shows how time flies. These little girls that I’ve known for decades are now full grown women who are getting married. It’s quite bittersweet for me. Seeing how John adores Michelle, I knew she was in good hands. πŸ™‚

Tiffany and Tam’s wedding 7.7.12

I was a bit worried that baby Riley was going to be late since my due date was 1 week prior to Tiffany and Tam’s wedding. I scheduled a couple of back ups just in case I was in labor on their wedding date but Thank God, Baby Riley arrived on time. It was a little difficult for me since I was still in pain and Riley was just 1 week old butΒ  nothing was going to stop KDWP!

Tiffany is my sister’s friend so I’ve known her since she was a little girl! When she approached me to coordinate her wedding, I felt very very old. I mean in my eyes, she was still this little girl that was hanging out with my sister and she is now getting married!! Tiffany planned the whole wedding on her own (with a little bit of my help) since Tam is in Texas. She truly did an amazing job!

Our Wedding 9.10.11 – Part 4

Finally, the last blog about our wedding! It only took me 4 months but at least it is here! I tried to incorporate a little bit of all my previous clients wedding into the reception since I pulled my inspirations from all them.

Here are the details of the Reception.

The Place Cards table.

The Sweetheart table.

Our silhouette! I had to incorporate a little bit of french in there πŸ™‚

The sign-in table and money box.

The Cake.

With the talented Jenny Vu of Intricakes who made our cake!

I wanted the cream puffs in the shape of the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe. Isabel from Sweet Nothings did amazing!

The reception overall look.

Our party favors were actually cake towel. Cute!

When guests arrived, they first took a picture with us then look for their place cards and sign-in.

Hors D’oeuvres and a hit at the open bar!

Bottoms up with some happy “courage” juice before the Grand Entrance.

The awesome DJZ pumping up the crowd before our Grand Entrance.

After looking at all the photos, I realize that I make the weirdest faces during our Grand Entrance. lol…

A high energy bridal party makes a great Grand Entrance!

Our First Dance.

We decided to dance to “This I promise you” by N’Sync πŸ™‚ I was singing along the whole time so on a lot of the photos I made weird faces again.

We practiced the dip but when it was time to actually do it, we completely failed.

Our good friend Annh said a prayer to bless the food.

The open bar was a definite hit! I don’t think anybody went home sobber πŸ™‚

Instant Party Pix Photobooth provided such fun entertainment to all of our guests. We had to get in and enjoy it too πŸ™‚

Β The Best man speech from Renrick’s brother was so thoughtful.

Mmmmmhhh…I was wondering why all the bridesmaids were gathered on this side…

…well, that’s because they had a surprise dance up their sleeves!

They definitely surprised us with a dance routine to “Baby” by Justin Bieber!

Cheering for our bridal party!

I was so ecstatic!!!

The Maid of Honor speech.

I have no idea how my brother and sister pulled this off but they surprised us with some hilarious entertainment.
