Jamie and Will’s Wedding 5.20.17

Our Jr. Coordinator, Lily, took this wedding on since I was not available on that day. Jamie and Will booked our services about a month out from their wedding, it was a little bit of a catching up for us in terms of getting to know them and what they envisioned for their wedding but it all worked out.

From Lily: Jamie and Will planned their entire wedding and hoped it to be extra special for their family and friends. You can tell they were incredibly involved in every aspect and were so much fun to work with. On their wedding day, they showed a video that was so adorable and heartfelt. That donut wall!!! It was so epic! Everyone couldn’t stop talking about the custom made wall display. Thank you for trusting me on your special day and I wish you both limitless amount of happiness!!

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!

Korean Boy Band

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.
