Lena and David’s Wedding 4.23.16

This post is a little bit different since I haven’t received the photos from the wedding yet. I’ll just post the video from the wedding instead.

Lena’s mother is the one who booked my services for Lena and David’s wedding. Very unusual for Vietnamese parents to book a coordinator but to have a parent follow your work is very humbling. Lena’s mother and I spoke several times over the phone since she lives out of state (our conversation sometimes lasted more than 1 hour) and she wanted to gift “my services” to them, on top of designing a garden theme wedding for the lovely couple. I love Lena’s mother, she’s the sweetest. Actually, I loved everyone in their family. Everyone was just so nice and sweet; they felt like family and they treated my team and I like we were family.

I finally met Lena and David several months later after the booking since they are both busy with work and with a daughter. We immediately hit it off which was a relief. Lena and David are truly an amazing couple and I’m glad I took on their magical garden wedding.

Lena & David, I’m so happy that my team and I were a part of your wedding. It was such a pleasure getting to know the both of you, babysit Maddie and see your family grow. Wishing you a lifetime of happiness!

Vicky and Christopher’s Wedding 9.17.16

This is the 1st time that our team was split and we had 2 weddings on the same day. Not sure I will do that again since it was quite stressful working at one wedding and making sure that the other one was going smoothly as well. I have total trust in my team and their capabilities but I tend to be a worry wart. I worked Vicky and Christopher’s wedding because they booked my services first. I’m glad I was part of the wedding planning journey with them, they bounced a lot of ideas through me. I really appreciate it when brides and grooms come to me when they are stuck during planning or need advice, it shows that they value my opinion and it’s a huge compliment.

Nancy and Bach’s Wedding 9.3.16

When I first met Nancy and discussed about her wedding 5 months before her wedding date, I wasn’t aware that she was Allan Le’s sister, a great and fun photographer that I have had a pleasure a working with several times. It’s very humble for me when a fellow industry friend recommends my services to their family member especially when they have worked with a lot of wedding planners/coordinators out there.

Nancy and Bach are extremely sweet and easy going with everything. They had their wedding at the Pasea, a new trendy hotel in Huntington Beach which at the time of their wedding, just opened about 3 months.

Wedding 8.27.16

I have to say it again that this year has truly been a blessing for our KDWP team. We had the chance to work at amazing beautiful venues and Serra Plaza is definitely one of them. This couple is shy in front of cameras so they decided to remain anonymous but you can definitely enjoy the beautiful pictures captured by the fun and talented Allan Le Photography.

Wedding 6.25.16

I had the honor to coordinate this sweet couple wedding (who would like to stay anonymous) back in June at the Ebell of Long Beach. The Ebell is a gorgeous venue, it has a Spanish/European feel to it and lots of details which was a real treat. The bride provided all of the decor and florals for the wedding and we were more than happy to set everything up per her vision. The one part I was a bit nervous and apprehensive of was the flip. We had about 1 hour to flip the ceremony to the reception with many details on the tables. It was a true team effort between the venue staff and our KDWP team.

Shout out to Shoda Love Photography who flew to So. Cal from No. Cal to capture the couple’s wedding.

As previously mentioned, the bride provided all of the flowers and she worked on all of the boutonnieres herself. When setting up, we didn’t see the “special” boutonniere for the groom. Turns out, the bride forgot her bouquet and the groom’s boutonniere at their Pasadena house. I had to whip up a groom’s boutonniere out of the extra flowers and centerpieces. Not bad for a last minute, on the fly boutonniere right?

While everyone was enjoying cocktail in the Courtyard, our team and Ebell staff flipped the ceremony into the reception. Look at the details and amount of items that needed to be set up on the table, we had to pull the flip in about 1.5 hours. It was pretty chaotic and we were on top of each other but everything turned out awesome. Good thing we had a meeting and a strategy so everyone knew what they needed to do.

Jamie and Elliot’s Wedding 5.20.16

Who knew there would be this hidden gem of a place in Orange County? Coto de Caza Country Club has just been renovated and it looks absolutely stunning. Good job finding this gem Jamie! She’s searched high and low for a venue and this turns out to be the perfect setting.

I know Jamie from our days of working at Wet Seal. This has been a long time coming since Jamie and Elliot have been together forever it seems. I couldn’t be happier for them when I found out through Social Media that they were engaged. It was such a pleasure that Jamie reached out to me to coordinate their wedding. Jamie and Elliot wanted an intimate, no frill, wedding and they definitely delivered that.

Jamie and Elliot bought A LOT of random decorations and they told me to make it work. Hong from Pink, the Little Flower Shop, and I just randomly placed them around the venue and everything actually turned out beautifully with all the decorations.

Jamie and Elliot, thank you so very much for letting this little Asian girl help you with the wedding planning process. It was truly an honor and so much fun for my team and I to be part of the journey and share this special day with the 2 of you. We couldn’t be happier and we wish you all the laughter, happiness and blessing in the world.

And to end the night with a bang…no weddings are the same and after all these years of doing them, it was my 1st time being on my hands and knees cleaning up puke. Life of wedding planner/coordinator is not as glamorous as you’d think. There are a lot of behind the scenes you don’t see from the pictures posted but I wouldn’t trade this for anything. I love weddings, I love my couples and I will always put 150% of myself into making their wedding a memorable one.

Samira and Borzin’s Wedding 3.19.16

This year truly has been an amazing year so far. Samira and Borzin’s wedding definitely proved how lucky we have been.

Samira has reached out to me a couple of times prior to the wedding but we never really set a date to meet until about 2 months before the wedding. When I first met Samira and Borzin, I found them to be genuine, personable and friendly, they are just a great couple all in all. As I conclude our initial meeting, I thought there was no way they will book me since I have never done a Persian wedding before and I’m not too familiar with the culture. Turns out they took their chance on me, gave me the opportunity to learn about the Persian culture and I would be able cross Vibiana off my venue wish list. I worked with them on various items leading up to the wedding so they could enjoy their day and help me coordinate a successful wedding. I was extremely nervous on the day of the wedding 1. I didn’t want to do a bad job since it is a new culture I was working with and 2. Dream Venue!

Samira and Borzin mentioned to me that Persian weddings involved a lot of eating, partying and dancing until the wee hours of the night and boy, did they deliver! Since the day was also Persian New Year, it was another good excuse to celebrate. The crowd was a bit hard to control at times but it was such a fun experience for our KDWP team. We are so thankful that the family, bridal party and guests embraced us and showed us what a Persian wedding is all about.

Thank you Navid Studio Photography for the beautiful pictures.

I couldn’t have dreamed of a more perfect couple to experience this with. We hope you had as much fun as we did that night. We wish you all the best and happiness in this journey as husband and wife.

Mai and Nham’s wedding 1.30.16

I received a call from Mai on Cecilia and David‘s wedding day for her wedding. At the time of the call, she said her wedding is 4 weeks away and she needed a coordinator. I told her that for her wedding size, I usually wouldn’t do it because it doesn’t give me much time to prepare. After exchanging a few words, we decided to meet the next day to discuss more. It turns out Mai’s sister and maid of honor is in the wedding industry, Sweet Events by Anh, and everything has been planned and ready to go. They just needed someone to be there on the day of to set everything up. After meeting with Mai and her sisters and seeing how sweet they all are, I decided to help them. I was a bit apprehensive leading up to the wedding because there was so many details to the wedding and I didn’t want to disappoint Mai and Anh.

It was a lot of work but I don’t regret one bit after seeing the end result, the wedding was just beautiful. I’m still in awe of how gorgeous everything turned out to be and I am glad I had a hand in helping Anh execute her vision of the wedding for her sister.

Mai and Nham got married at Blessed Sacrament in Westminster where Mai’s parents got married 30 years ago to that day.

It was a very special moment witnessing Mai’s father walking her down the aisle.

So many intricate details went into the reception decoration. Anh and Mai’s vision was to turn the reception into a winter wonderland and they accomplished that. Better Choice Flower did an amazing work on flowers as well.

Thank you Mai and Nham for allowing KDWP to be part of your Winter Wonderland wedding. It was definitely a wedding to remember! We wish you a lifetime of happiness and nothing but goodness in your journey as husband and wife.

Big thanks to Anh for taking a step back and trusting us to execute your vision. I know how hard it is sometimes to let go after months and months of planning. It is very humbling when another planner has faith in another planner/coordinator in the industry, we really appreciate it.

Cecilia and David’s wedding 1.2.16

We celebrated 2016 in style with a fantastic wedding right after ringing in the New Year. Cecilia interned for KDWP a few years back but she was so busy with school and work that she decided not to pursue the field. I also think I scared her away from it since she saw how much work was involved when planning/coordinating a wedding. 🙂

Cecilia and David wanted a no frill, easy-going wedding to enjoy with their family and friends. When they contacted me to coordinate their wedding, I was a bit surprised since Cecilia knows a lot of coordinators (she interned for a few if I recall correctly) but I was more than happy to be part of their special day. I also had the pleasure of working with Trini and Phong, a past couple of ours, who now have become successful photographers. Thank you for the beautiful pictures Trini!
