Thuy and Cuongโ€™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.

Trinity and David’s wedding 5.26.12

Trinity and David live in Arizona and had their wedding in OC because all of their family and friends are here. Trinity and I hit up instantly on our first consultation, which is always a good sign. ๐Ÿ™‚ They are by far the nicest couple that KDWP had worked with (yes, I say that about all my couples but truly, I have been blessed with the best bride and groom EVER!!!). I didn’t get to meet David until a month prior to their wedding but I absolutely understand why Trinity fell in love with him. He is such a sweetheart and is super funny! Trinity is a beautiful person inside and out and it wasn’t hard for David to fall in love with her either.

Since their wedding was 1 month prior to my due date, Trinity and David took such good care of me.ย  They went to McDonald’s and got me hamburger! I remember Trinity came up to me with a hamburger and told me “please feed my baby, you are working too hard” and David gently (forcefully) sat me down on a chair and make sure that I ate. I mean….how can I not love these 2!!! Because of my pregnancy, their wedding was the 1st wedding where KDWP has decided to expand and take on interns.

Michelle and John’s wedding 7.21.12

Michelle is another friend of my little sister. I’ve always known her as Thao and seeing her getting married just shows how time flies. These little girls that I’ve known for decades are now full grown women who are getting married. It’s quite bittersweet for me. Seeing how John adores Michelle, I knew she was in good hands. ๐Ÿ™‚

Tiffany and Tam’s wedding 7.7.12

I was a bit worried that baby Riley was going to be late since my due date was 1 week prior to Tiffany and Tam’s wedding. I scheduled a couple of back ups just in case I was in labor on their wedding date but Thank God, Baby Riley arrived on time. It was a little difficult for me since I was still in pain and Riley was just 1 week old butย  nothing was going to stop KDWP!

Tiffany is my sister’s friend so I’ve known her since she was a little girl! When she approached me to coordinate her wedding, I felt very very old. I mean in my eyes, she was still this little girl that was hanging out with my sister and she is now getting married!! Tiffany planned the whole wedding on her own (with a little bit of my help) since Tam is in Texas. She truly did an amazing job!
