Liza and Hoang’s Wedding 4.14.18

Liza and Hoang’s Wedding 4.14.18

Liza and Hoang were referred by a good friend of ours who used to be part of the KDWP team (thanks Kayla!). It turns out that Liza is Christopher‘s sister who we coordinated the wedding in September of 2016. I really enjoy working weddings within families because I get to see faces that I recognize and see the family expand.  

Liza and Hoang wanted a simple wedding with no frills. Their main concern was to have a good time with their family and friends.

 

 

1st Look Anticipation

 

Before all the festivities began, Liza and Hoang opted to do a quick tea ceremony with immediate family.

 

 

While everyone enjoyed cocktail hour, the catering, floral and KDWP team flipped the ceremony into the reception area. #teamwork

Anna and David’s Wedding 3.10.18

Anna and David’s Wedding 3.10.18

Another nice, humble and lovable couple in the books for our KDWP team. Anna and David booked our services a year out from their wedding. Anna wanted a have a modern farm wedding so I helped her source vendors for chairs and tables. Throughout the wedding planning, Anna was not hesitant about voicing her concerns and frustrations. I was more than happy to be her confidant and offering my advice when needed. I cherish every conversation, email exchange with my couples as it is part of getting to know them.

Anna and David’s wedding turned out absolutely stunning and their wedding is definitely one of our favorites!

 

 

Our stunning bride!

I’m totally obsessed with all of the details of this wedding. Swooning over everything!

That chandelier though!

Can’t decide between the soft romantic look or the black and white so I am posting both.

Sweetheart table goal!

Diem and Joseph’s Wedding 10.7.17

75% of the weddings we do are through word of mouth, mainly referrals from past couples. We can’t thank everyone enough for referring us, keeping us employed and doing what we love. 🙂

In this particular case, my past bride Shari absolutely wanted Diem and Joseph to hire me for their wedding and even offered to pay a portion of my service as a gift to the couple. Isn’t Shari the greatest friend ever??? She contacted me a year out from their wedding date, I was on vacation out of country (the irony is that I was trying to take a break from all the weddings since I was working so much lol) but we ended up working something out so I could be part of Diem and Joseph’s wedding.

I actually have met Diem and Joseph at Shari and Jay’s wedding and I knew how talented she is. I have to say that I am very glad I was involved in their wedding because I have the most talented, kind-hearted clients. Try to stay until the end of the blog, I have a little treat for everyone to showcase how talented Diem is.

Diem’s beautiful wedding dress was designed and made by the talented Jacky Tai

Diem is absolutely stunning! Did I mention that she was Miss Vietnam Southern California 2015???

The details on that wedding gown! ❤

Such a good looking couple!

After 8 years of being a wedding planner and countless weddings under my belt, you’d think I have done it all. Diem challenged me to decorate her cake with fresh flowers. I didn’t tell her at the time that this would be my 1st time doing it and it turned out great, I might say. Although, I was shaking the whole time I inserted each flower on the cake. 😀

We’re pros now at hanging couple’s initials on hedges.

During the parents’ dance, a very special song was played. Diem recorded a song  to pay respect and acknowledge their parents! It was so meaningful, I cried the whole time. Diem was kind enough to let me share her talent so listen to how beautiful her voice and song is.

Diem also composed and sang a beautiful song to her husband Joe. Unfortunately, I do not have the song yet. As soon as I do, I will post it for everyone’s enjoyment.

Thank you Diem and Joe for letting KDWP be a part of your wedding day. You are such a talented couple and with heart of golds. We wish you a lifetime of happiness and many many years of a blessed marriage.

Thao and Thang’s Wedding 9.3.17

Thao was referred by Vicky and Chris since Thao is marrying Vicky’s brother. My 1st impression when meeting Thao was “wow she is tall!”. Thao and Thang live in Northern California so a lot of our communication was via emails, texts and phone calls. Thao was such an easy bride to work with. She wanted the wedding itinerary to be as simple as possible without driving out of the hotel to take pictures.

Thao and Thang’s wedding was my 1st wedding after giving birth to my 2nd child. I needed the adult interaction and it was a nice break from being a full time mom at home. I have been wanting to work with Kevin Le Vu Photography for a while now and they did not disappoint one bit. Such a treat getting beautiful images from the wedding to share with everyone.
