Congratulation to Linda and Roland Cao--October 20, 2007

Congratulation to my recent bride and groom: ~Linda and Roland Cao~

It was an awesome wedding with fun theme, elegant setting, exciting activities, and great atmosphere. It was a real success for me to see everyone had a great party. :)

To begin with: This wedding took place at Hotel Valencia at Santana Row. A wonderful location inside the middle of the European Style shopping area. Great staffs and great venue to work with. We had an outdoor ceremony which the weather was just right to begin this romantic wedding. This was a very good idea of Linda and Roland that they decided to do their own vows without letting each other know. When it's time to do their vows, they kind of told a story of each other and I'm sure that really touch most of the guests.

Reception took place at the same location inside at the ballroom.

To start with this fun party, you can see from above photos that, yes... they have photo booth for guests to take instant photos and put it on the guest book. All guests are very excited for taking photos and putting it into the guest book. This gave them the creativity of doing the way they wanted to greet the newly wed and it's fun for the bride and groom to look at.

What a wonderful design of the cake!! And now you may know about the theme of the wedding. It's Lego!! Let's go back to few months ago when they do starting to do their planning. One day when I met with Linda for her gown fitting, she showed me a little cute magnet with a Lego bride and groom holding hands and a little Lego flower as they save the date! By that time, I know we are going to have a fun Lego party. And here you go! A wedding cake custom with Lego all around. Isn't it amazing? And this, we really need to give credit to Cake Expressions for doing this wonderful creation and willing to listen to client of what they really on for their cake! They've done a great job!

During the cocktail hours to end of reception, we have non-stop activities that gave all guests have a wonderful time. Above, you seen the photo booth, one more thing I should mention here is a balloon artist! (sorry I didn't have a photo for that) But Linda and Roland have been very thoughtful of caring their kid attendants! They have a balloon artist during the cocktail hours for the kids!! As we move forward to the reception, we have Lion Dance performance came in just before dinner. The night didn't end with that, Linda and Roland have a newly wed game for everyone guessing the right answer in order to win the centerpieces home. It was just a fun way to do and that your guests really paid attention on rather they win or not. :)

Much more to come over the night. Beside the wedding cake, we have a very delicious chocolate fountain as the dessert as well. This chocolate fountain not only delicious, it's not made out of milk! Can you believe that a chocolate fountain does not contain any mike and it still taste like chocolate? This is a good news for those who can't take milk or soy.
Then they ended the night with some dancing and as well as a farewell dance.
It was an awesome wedding! :D
