Kim and Dwight’s Wedding 4.29.17

I absolutely LOVE Kim and Dwight. They became one of my favorite couples! They came to me with an interest for my partial/full planning. I usually don’t take a lot of full planning since I also work full time and it would require a lot of time and involvement. Since their wedding was a year + out, I had plenty of time to plan everything out. I couldn’t say no to them either after our initial meeting, they truly were the nicest, most enjoyable couple to talk to. I created a Power Point with their vision in mind and we started looking at venues. Once we settled on the reception site, we booked all of the major vendors. I’m glad they went with a lot of my vendor suggestions but they still had a say in what they wanted. It was a team effort planning the wedding. I didn’t force my ideas on them but worked with them on creating their dream wedding.

We started the day with a tea ceremony.

Kim and Dwight then changed to head out to the Church Ceremony.

I can’t get enough of Kim’s simple wedding dress.

Married! Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Kim!

The details of the cake from Intricakes are so on point!

I love that they incorporated the Korean Paebaek ceremony.

The traditional Korean outfit Han Bok for the Paebaek were too cute on Kim and Dwight! Absolutely love it!

According to legend the number that you catch signifies how many girls (dates) and boys (chestnuts) the newlywed will bear.

At the end of the Korean paebaek ceremony, the groom gives his bride a piggyback ride as a public display of his strength and a promise of his unending love to her.

Thank you Kim and Dwight for spending so much time with me and planning the wedding of your dreams. It was so much fun being part of the planning journey with you. Wishing the both of you a lifetime of happiness!

Jamie and Nik’s Wedding 2.4.17

Jamie and Nik had a small wedding at the beautiful Rancho Las Lomas. It was the perfect setting for our Jr. Coordinator, Christine, to show her talent at coordinating a wedding.

From Christine:

Working with Jamie and Nik was a breeze! What I loved about the couple was that they were laid back and care free. On the day of the wedding, I could tell they were both excited and nervous, although Jamie seemed more calm than Nik. I recall when pinning the boutonniere on Nik, he was all smiles as he couldn’t wait to see how Jamie would look in her dress, and of course, to be her husband. The collaboration between the vendors made for a beautiful day. From the flower arch at the ceremony, to the natural setting of Rancho Las Lomas, to the nostalgic songs played by the DJ, you couldn’t have asked for a better combination. The night was filled with laughter, dance competitions, and love all around. I wish Jamie and Nik all the best as they embark on this new journey as husband and wife!

 

Thank you Jamie and Nik for trusting our team and letting us be part of  your wonderful and beautiful day. We wish you nothing but happiness and a lifetime of love and laughter.

Tammy and Vu’s Wedding 11.26.16

Last wedding of 2016 and I couldn’t have been more than happy to close it out with Tammy and Vu’s wedding. I’ve known Tammy for years and I consider her like a little sister. She was one of my bridesmaid after all. When I found out that she found her soul mate and got engaged, I was more than ecstatic for her. I offered her my services not knowing whether or not she would take me up on it since she likes to plan and do weddings herself. When she contacted me and said she was going to have me be her coordinator, it warmed and touched my heart.

Tammy is so talented, she made the paper backdrop for the tea ceremony and the arch in front of the house.

 

  

Love the floral pop of color against the Bridesmaids’ dresses.

Tammy looked so happy on her wedding day, it was contagious!

Married!!! Congratulations Tammy and Vu!

This is the backdrop that Tammy made herself to greet and take pictures with her guests upon their arrival at the reception. It was humongous!

Tammy’s sister and maid of honor did so good at her speech! She rapped to the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song all through it! Kuddos to her!

Candy Station = Always a HIT at weddings.
