Kittiya and Phuong’s Wedding 3.4.17

Kittiya reached out to me based on a referral about 6 months before the wedding. She needed a little bit of help with finalizing planning and needed someone to execute her vision. It was a delight getting to know Kittiya and Phuong during those 6 months. They are a down to earth couple and the love for their family and friends is seen throughout the wedding.

Thank you Kittiya and Phuong for throwing such a great wedding and letting our team execute your vision. We wish you nothing but the best and a lifetime of happiness! Cheers!

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.

Lily and Matthew’s Wedding 11.12.16

When the couple knows a lot of people in OC and is well-known in the new up and coming food industry, you can’t help but count your blessings when they pick you as their wedding coordinator. While working with Lily and Matthew leading up to their wedding, I couldn’t believe how easy-going they were. Their main concern was to have fun and to take care of all their guests. I got to know them as months passed and I understand why they are so loved by all their family and friends. These 2 lovebirds were definitely meant for each other.

The festivities started out with a Tea Ceremony.

Lily and Matthew’s dog, Kingston was the star of the ceremony. I love that they incorporated him into the ceremony. He was so well-behaved.

ThyVan and Brent’s Wedding 10.8.16

Lily has been friends with ThyVan for a long time and she had the honor to be ThyVan and Brent’s Jr. Coordinator on their wedding while I took a much needed vacation in Canada.

I have been debating whether or not I should be blogging about this wedding. Lily contacted ThyVan for her blessing before we publicly posted the wedding. Sadly, as we post this blog, Brent has lost his battle with cancer in January. However, this blog is not intended to make anyone sad but to honor Brent’s life, deep love for ThyVan, his family, and friends. We will remember him as the fun, loving person that is captured on this joyous day.

From Lily:

Thyvan and Brent had a beautiful wedding day full of memories and laughter with their family and closest friends. It was also the Groom’s birthday! ThyVan surprised him with a birthday cake of course!

Looking back, I have known Thyvan for many years and we bonded over stories about our boyfriends, food, and how non-girly we were. She always knew Brent would be “The One” she could spend the rest of her life with.

Unfortunately, wedding planning was put on hold for over a year due to the Groom’s chronic illness, the final results was shocking. It was cancer. His prognosis was less than six months. Thyvan called me that day and we set up a consultation at Kelly’s office. We reassured her that we would try to help as much as possible. In four months, ThyVan was able to plan the entire wedding while also being the Groom’s live-in nurse and working her usual shifts. She was so organized and took control when Brent was too sick to help her. She was booking vendors left and right. God is so good! He sent us vendors that went above and beyond to make this day special for them. I had the pleasure of enjoying our meetings with Brent because he was as hands on as he could be by attending all the meetings and site visits. He wanted to make sure she was able to get everything she wanted. I couldn’t wait for them to get married!

Regretfully, we all said goodbye to Brent on January 10th. It was just three months after the wedding. Our hearts were crushed, but he left us all with a strong message to take care of our bodies and be proactive about your health. Love more and reduce daily stress. We celebrate your life and what you gave to all of us Brent | RIP @IkariWarriorsFightAgainstCancer
