Angela + Ryan | The Pavilion at Boulder Ridge | San Jose Wedding

Angela and Ryan were one of my favorite couples to work with! They are such a cute couple and the nicest people! Our meetings were always fun and I always looked forward to chatting with them about their wedding plans. Angela is just the sweetest person and you can really tell how much Ryan adores her. Ryan had a special surprise for Angela on their wedding day which included a performance by one of their favorite jazz singers, Spencer Day. Angela's expression when Spencer came on the stage was truly priceless! I remember the day Ryan called to explain the surprise to me and we chatted about how we can incorporate it into the timeline (all without Angela knowing...) and luckily the surprise was a success! Angela told me at our last meeting that she thought Ryan had something up his sleeve and she thought it was regarding the decor for the reception... Little did she know ;). Congratulations Angela and Ryan! Looking forward to staying in touch! xoxo

Macie + Eric | Fort Mason | San Francisco Wedding

Macie and Eric were so fun to work with on their wedding! After our initial meeting I was so excited at the possibility of working with them because I felt like we had a great connection and I knew I would love working with them. I was so happy when Macie emailed me confirming that they were going to hire me as their wedding planner! Macie and Eric were so easy-going which made the planning process so easy and allowed them to really enjoy their special day. They hosted their wedding at the General's Residence at Fort Mason in San Francisco and I absolutely love it there. For dinner, they had their wedding party assist in cooking by boiling lobster during cocktail hour! It was such a fun activity for the wedding party to take part in and for the guests to watch. The wedding was also during Fleet Week so we got to watch the Blue Angels! I truly enjoyed this wedding and wish Macie and Eric the very best as they start their new life together! Best wishes!!

Valerie + Justin | Blackhawk Museum Wedding

Valerie and Justin were such a pleasure to work with! I love when couples know what they want and they were were so organized with their planning from day one. I had coordinated Valerie's best friend's wedding last year, whose husband was the DJ and MC - it was so fun! Valerie and Justin put a lot of effort into the details of their wedding, including invitations, table decor and fun activities for their guests. They had a taco truck arrive after the ceremony, a photo-booth and a candy bar to treat everyone. The Blackhawk Museum is such a cool place to host a wedding reception as you'll see from the photos and video. Thank you to Karl Ko for capturing amazing photos of their special day. Congrats Valerie & Justin!

Anmy + Francis | Four Seasons Hotel | Palo Alto Wedding

Anmy and Francis' wedding was perfect and mostly because Anmy and Francis are perfect for each other. I've known Anmy since elementary school so you can imagine how excited I was when they hired me as their wedding coordinator! We reconnected over a year ago at her brother's wedding that I also coordinated. It was so much fun to help her and Francis with their special day since Anmy and I go way back! Anmy and Francis are so sweet together... they are always laughing, easy-going and just so nice! I loved working with them on their wedding and it was so special to see one of my childhood friends get married! Congratulations Anmy and Francis! :)
