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.

Thao is the youngest of 5 sisters and the last one to get married!

Thao and Thang, thank  you very much for trusting me to be part of your wedding planning journey. We wish you a lifetime of happiness!

Quang and Nick’s Wedding 7.22.17

When Quang and Nick came to me on their wedding, I knew for sure I had to have a Jr. Coordinator take this wedding since their wedding would be a few days prior to my due date. I assured them that they would be in good hands with Christine. I was hoping to show up for a couple of hours at their wedding to help the team but as the day neared, I knew I had to rest since I was so big from pregnancy. Christine and the team handled the wedding exceptionally well and I cannot be more proud of them.

From our Jr. Coordinator, Christine: What I loved most about Quang and Nick was their love for their friends, family, and food. From the tea ceremony in the morning to the reception at the French Estate, they made sure that their friends and family had fun and was well fed. Working with the couple was a breeze. It felt like I had known them before as they were easy to talk to and super laid back. They also had a great selection of vendors. Thanks to Danielle Penn Photography, DJ T Roc, The Flower Boutique, Kelly Tran Artistry (hair & make-up), Ane Thanh Lion Dance, Funtastic Photo Booths and the French Estate for putting together an amazing wedding. Thank you to Brodard for providing the appetizers, Cafe Gratitude for the vegetarian dishes, and Paracel Seafood who catered an amazing seven course dinner. The wedding was filled with big smiles and laughter. Who knew the couple had such talent as well! Quang sang with her father a sweet Vietnamese song and Nick and his mom kicked off the dancing with their salsa moves. All the guests seemed to have a great time and left with full hearts and bellies. I can’t thank them enough for allowing me to be a part of their special day.

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!
