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.

Lily and Gordon’s wedding 10.10.15

Wrapping our events in 2015 and saving the best for last! Our very own KDWP team member got married! I’ve known Lily since she was 17 years old and when she started dating Gordon, I was beyond happy that she found a great guy! When Gordon and Lily got engaged, the first thing I said after congratulating them was I can only wear 1 hat at their wedding and I want to enjoy it. Gordon was mostly doing the planning so it was interesting getting a guy’s perspective on the whole thing.

I have to give credit to my dear friend Lily on being there with me from the beginning of KDWP. If it weren’t for her encouragement, support, help and belief in me, I wouldn’t have been able to grow the company where it is today. It was just the 2 of us when we started 7 years ago and I have no idea how we pulled it off doing weddings just the 2 of us then. Now, we have a whole team who she has trained and dedicated her time to. I have to say, she is my right hand in growing the business. I have to thank Gordon too for sacrificing his time with her and allowing Lily to work with me on the weekends. Gordon and Lily are a couple who you can truly count on and they compliment each other in so many ways. I can’t express how grateful I am to have them as my friends and couldn’t be happier that they had a blast at their wedding.

So for the Grand Entrance, Gordon and Lily wanted to do a 1 shot music video with all of the guests. Since I experienced and coordinated the one from Diana and Tony’s wedding the month before, I coached them on how it should go. Here I am with our KDWP team going over how everything should go to make the video a smooth transition.

Gosh, I can’t believe I’ve known these 2 crazy sisters for almost 15 years now. All the memories we’ve made together are priceless. I know I can always count on them to be truthful and a shoulder to lean on. Jenny’s Maid of Honor speech had me laughing and in tears.

When it was time to put the garter on, it was nowhere to be found so I had to make a last minute D.I.Y garter with a broken bridesmaid’s necklace. Lily and I quick thinking saved the day lol

Thy and Eddie’s wedding 10.4.14

Thy is one of the easiest, carefree bride I’ve ever worked with. She was so easy going, it made my job way too easy. 🙂 Eddie is the well known tattoo artist from OC Tattoo, Inc. You definitely cannot find a funnier person than him. Together, they make the perfect fun, loving couple and I couldn’t be luckier being their wedding day coordinator.

Big props to Dzien from DJZ Productions for helping the Bride & Groom’s friend who officiated their wedding and dealing with the dance floor vendor while I was busy running around doing things for the bride. I’m blessed to be working with awesome team of vendors who look out for each other.
