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!

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.

Thank you Kim and Dwight for spending so much time with me and planning the wedding of your dreams. It was so much fun being part of the planning journey with you. Wishing the both of you a lifetime of happiness!

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!

Ann and Brendon’s Wedding 11.19.16

I met sweet Ann about 7 months before her wedding date. At our initial consultation, she mentioned that she had about 7 months to plan her wedding and I told her that I would help her along the way if she has any questions. Ann definitely took advantage of my expertise and emailed me any chance she had. I was very excited that she took my advice while she was planning the wedding and I felt like she respected my opinions. Ann is soft spoken and super duper sweet! I didn’t get to meet Brendon until a couple of days prior to the wedding. He’s a funny, gentle and amazing man. Ann and Brendon were a perfect match! In just 7 months of planning, Ann did an amazing job and the wedding turned out absolutely beautiful. I mean she had a hanging cake!
