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.

Gwenyth and Kevin’s Wedding 8.31.13

This wedding was the start of the crazy 5 back to back weddings in a row for KDWP.

Gwenyth and Kevin are 2 wonderful loving people who made sure that all of their guests had a memorable day. It is by far the biggest and most beautiful wedding KDWP has worked on so far. It was one lavish extravagant wedding that we will never forget. I have to admit that it was quite challenging at times but we pulled it through even though we encountered some hiccups along the way. Gwenyth and Kevin booked my services about 1 month prior to the wedding. I was hesitant to accept the booking at first because it didn’t give me much time to prep before the wedding. I took on the last minute coordination after meeting with Gwenyth and Kevin and couldn’t refuse after they described to me the vision they had for their wedding day. I was really really nervous as the wedding day was looming closer, there was so much to do yet so little time left. Gwenyth and Kevin’s wedding definitely put my wedding expertise, planning and coordination to the test. I had to do a lot of quick thinking and relied on my team to work extremely fast. Poor Gwenyth and Kevin had a lot of headache too, their original photographer quit on them 1 week prior to the wedding. It was a mad rush to find a last minute photographer during peak wedding season. Luckily, a good friend of them stepped up to the plate to save the day. Big thanks to Allan Le Photography for working so hard and delivering amazing photos.

Yes, it was one of the most stressful night of my life but in the end, getting a hug from Gwen and Kevin to thank us for a great job we did meant the world to us. It made for all the running around, being behind schedule and resolving all of the hiccups worth it. Gwenyth and Kevin, thank you so much for letting my team and I be part of your beautiful wedding. You guys definitely know how to throw a party! We wish you many wonderful years of happiness together. Keep posting photos of the food you are eating in Vegas! I live vicariously through you.

Lanny and Richard’s wedding 5.25.13

Lanny and Richard had a gorgeous wedding on a sunny May day. Lanny and Richard are so cute together (and they are so tall too), they were a sweet loving couple and everyone had a great time at their wedding. Lanny hired me only for the reception part of the day since she didn’t need me in the morning for tea ceremony or church ceremony. However, I am including photos from the morning too since Carissa Woo photographed such beautiful pictures.

Thuy and Cuong’s wedding 12.15.12

Thanks to my previous brides and word of mouth, Thuy and Cuong called me right after our initial meeting to book my services! They are one of the most loving couples I’ve met and the love that they share is contagious! They got married right around Christmas so the festive spirit was felt throughout the day with Christmas decorations and Christmas Trees and balls everywhere. It was also a gorgeous day for a winter wedding!

Love these moments between the bride and her bridesmaids.

Katie B and Shaun’s Wedding 11.6.10

Happy New Year 2011 everyone! I couldn’t ask for a better start of the year than by blogging about an amazing couple: Katie B and Shaun. I’ve known Katie B and Shaun for over a year now. The first time I met them, I was blown away by the love they have for each other. There was no doubt in my mind that they were meant for each other, they complete one another in a deeper level that I’ve ever seen before. I was very surprised at how personable, down to earth, intelligent and friendly Katie B is! To me, she was a celebrity because she worked with celebrities :), so I was quite star-struck.  Shaun makes you feel very comfortable to be around, that’s why after our first meeting, they pretty much knew a whole lot about me. They are by far the nicest 2 people a person can meet. I am glad that our relationship has grown from client to friendship in such a short time, and I am grateful that they trusted me enough to let me coordinate their over-the-top, glamorous, fabulous wedding day!

After a late night of helping setting up the reception venue, I was up bright and early at their hotel rooms. Katie B’s dress had a few loose threads so I came early to sew at a few places on her dress. 🙂

Did that I mention that I had a hand in helping her pick THE dress? I love the bottom of her dress and the bling are sooo Katie B 🙂

Of course Katie B would do her own hair and makeup! Who else?

Katie B and Shaun exchanged some gifts. Wait until you see what Katie B got!

Shaun really outdid himself. Take note Grooms-to-be, this is the way to a woman’s heart. 😉

Meanwhile….Shaun and the groomsmen get ready!

Pinning the boutonniere on the groom….

…and the result!

After getting through the awe of Shaun’s gifts, Katie B finished getting ready.

Love all the shoes lined up…

Katie B had her ao dai (Vietnamese traditional gown) for me to bring it to the reception but I wanted to make sure that the photographer had a chance to take a picture before I hauled everything away.

Can’t forget some of the bridesmaids details. The hairpieces were handmade for them.

Vibrant color bouquet! The florist and I inserted all the black feathers in the bridesmaids’ bouquets.

Katie B’s bouquet was adorned with her grandmother’s rosary.

Katie B was so emotional when she saw the rosary on her bouquet. It was very touching!

Katie B has such a genuine smile on this picture. Happy!

First look for Katie B and Shaun! I highly recommend first look for bride and groom. It definitely doesn’t take away from the emotions at the ceremony and it gives a more intimate moment for the couple.

Then, we were all off to Our Lady of La Vang Parish for the ceremony.

Such a talented family…Katie B has her cousins play her bridal walk.

The groom and groomsmen patiently waiting for the bride’s entrance.

Here comes the beautiful bride!
