Katherine + Herlindo | Hotel Valencia - Santana Row

Elegant, sweet and classy. These are three words that describe Katherine. I first met Katherine about four years ago when she was the wedding planner (and owner of Custom Celebrations) for a mutual client we had while I was working at a venue. From the first moment I met Katherine, I thought she was one of the sweetest people I had ever met. I remember calling Katherine one day to ask about how I should get into wedding planning and if she had any advice. She was so thoughtful and took the time to give me some information about wedding planning as a career. She's a woman I aspire to be like and a true role model.  You can only imagine how honored and excited I was when she asked me to help her coordinate her ten year anniversary celebration this past July. Katherine and her husband, Herlindo, renewed their vows in front of their adorable son, Roman, family and close friends. They exchanged the sweetest vows that even got me teary-eyed. It was such a wonderful event and you can truly see the love between Katherine and Herlindo. Not to mention this couple sure knows how to treat their guests. They treated them to delicious tapas, a candy bar, cigar bar, shaved ice station and a photo-booth! The guests had so much fun. Happy anniversary to Katherine and Herlindo! Here's to many more years of your happily ever after :).
