Thu and Troy - March 27, 2010

Thu had found me on Google's recommendation page.
She currently works for Google and met her groom
Troy who works at Apple at a workshop. They are
a very beautiful couple and the most low maintenance
people I've had the pleasure to work with.

Thu and Troy had preferred to get their
bouquets and flowers from
I had ordered them to arrive on Thursday
as the wedding was on Saturday so it will give
them time to bloom. This was the first time
I had ordered flowers from Costco and I was
very pleased with their service and their product!
I had to take the bouquets out and put it in water
and into the fridge but it was well worth the price!

Thu and Troy had a Vietnamese tea ceremony
Troy and his family came to Thu's house bringing
"betrothal presents" composed of gifts of
fruits, tea, cake, and wine. Afterwards, Thu and Troy
serves tea to their parents, friends and family. Their loved ones
would take turn to give their blessing, advice about marriage, and
gifts including red envelopes or jewelry.

The couple had their ceremony at
Quinlan Community Center in Cupertino.
Her colors were red and I had fun tying
up each individual red bows !

Their reception was at Mings.
This would be the Fifth or Sixth time
I've coordinated receptions at Mings in Palo Alto!
Thu and Troy are a very special couple, they both
just look so beautiful together!

They personalized their table names
with different technology companies
including: Google, Apple, Twitter, Facebook,
etc. It definitely fit both Thu and Troy's

After doing over 40 weddings, I've learned a few games
that are very entertaining and gets the audience engaged
and have fun!

Big group picture on the dance floor!

Congratulations Thu and Troy!

Erika and Raymond's Wedding August 1, 2010

I met Erika and Raymond through Candy.
Candy was one of Erika's bridsemaids. Erika and Raymond are
very easy going and was extremely my pleasure to
work with. The photographer is
The pictures look beautiful but it's because the
Bride and Groom are very beautiful people!

They got ready at a near by hotel. Erika's
dress is one of my personal favorite wedding dresses I've ever
seen. She looks magnificent!

I came early in the morning
to style all the bridesmaids
hair for the big day!

The ceremony was also at a very popular church called
Palo Alto Methodist Church. I have coordinated 4 weddings
at this church. The church coordinator is Jessie and she's a
pleasure to work with.

They took pictures off site
after the Ceremony at
Stanford, make sure
you apply for the permit
before you take pictures

The reception took place at Zen Peninsula at 1180 El Camino Real, in Milbrae, CA.
This restaurant had 4-5 flat screen TVs all around so it was very convenient
for guests to see the head table! This was one of my favorite
grand entrances for the reception! The maid of honor and the best man
pranced in as "Pimp and Pimpette" It was definitely entertaining!

Erika had three outfits that she changed into. White wedding dress-
to her adorable Kimono and to also show her support to Ray, she
wore a Chinese Chi Bao.

Congratulations Erika and Ray!
