I received a call from Mai on Cecilia and David‘s wedding day for her wedding. At the time of the call, she said her wedding is 4 weeks away and she needed a coordinator. I told her that for her wedding size, I usually wouldn’t do it because it doesn’t give me much time to prepare. After exchanging a few words, we decided to meet the next day to discuss more. It turns out Mai’s sister and maid of honor is in the wedding industry, Sweet Events by Anh, and everything has been planned and ready to go. They just needed someone to be there on the day of to set everything up. After meeting with Mai and her sisters and seeing how sweet they all are, I decided to help them. I was a bit apprehensive leading up to the wedding because there was so many details to the wedding and I didn’t want to disappoint Mai and Anh.
It was a lot of work but I don’t regret one bit after seeing the end result, the wedding was just beautiful. I’m still in awe of how gorgeous everything turned out to be and I am glad I had a hand in helping Anh execute her vision of the wedding for her sister.
Mai has amazing tastes! Love all of the dresses!
Let’s not forget to spotlight the groom.
1st Tea ceremony.
On the way to the 2nd Tea Ceremony
Mai and Nham got married at Blessed Sacrament in Westminster where Mai’s parents got married 30 years ago to that day.
It was a very special moment witnessing Mai’s father walking her down the aisle.
It sprinkled a little bit after the ceremony but I am glad that the sky cleared up for their portraits.
Mai is truly a gorgeous bride.
So many intricate details went into the reception decoration. Anh and Mai’s vision was to turn the reception into a winter wonderland and they accomplished that. Better Choice Flower did an amazing work on flowers as well.
The dessert table was to die for! Anh really outdid herself on this one. It was exquisite and extraordinary!
Handmade sugar flowers and cake by Final Touch.
Custom Ao Dai by Thai Nguyen Atelier. Absolutely gorgeous!
Mai’s birthday was a couple of days later. Nham surprised Mai by singing Happy Birthday.
Here is the Same Day Edit from CoPro Studio that played at the reception.
Thank you Mai and Nham for allowing KDWP to be part of your Winter Wonderland wedding. It was definitely a wedding to remember! We wish you a lifetime of happiness and nothing but goodness in your journey as husband and wife.
Big thanks to Anh for taking a step back and trusting us to execute your vision. I know how hard it is sometimes to let go after months and months of planning. It is very humbling when another planner has faith in another planner/coordinator in the industry, we really appreciate it.
