Yan & Essam's Wedding, Half Moon Bay

Yan and Essam, a very fashion and stylist bride and groom which I enjoyed having them around. It was an intimate wedding with 50 guests around the world to share their joyous day at the Ritz Carlton, Half Moon Bay with a beautiful sky on their wedding day. It was a bit windy but no cloud at all! This is one of my favorite weddings with a very clean, unique, and elegant yellow and brown colors to set their tone next to the ocean. It blended in so well with the outdoor and indoor look.

Time for photos: Special Thanks to Claudia Akers Photography to provide all the beautiful shots! I had a great time working with Claudia and her 2nd photographer-Julie, who is also a pro at the wedding and create some funny shoots. :)

I always encourage my bride and groom to be creative! And this time, they named all table in the well known fashion brand! Fun!! Prada at the sweetheart table :)

Oops...a small accident happened in the middle of the cocktail hour. Some golfers just had too much fun and hit the glass up on the Observatory room instead of the hold. Glad that we were safe in the double pane glass room, and no one was hurt. *Broken glass will bring Good Luck!* ;-)

An email I received few days after the wedding:
"Hi Amy,

Thank you so much for making our dream come true :). We cannot have this memorable wedding without you. You connected all the dots together! Thanks again for everything.

Yan and Essam"

Jackie and Tosh's Wedding, Cupertino

Jackie is an ABC and Tosh is an ABJ. Jackie's grandma wanted to follow some Chinese traditions from day one of the planning, so she asked for help on picking the date from the Chinese Calender. Neither of them know much about the tradition but want to be respectful to their parents and grandparents. I still remember the first time we met, they were not sure what to do. During the planning with Jackie and Tosh, I'm so happy to see them growth and the support of each other. I'm very glad they both enjoyed the planning and the traditional elements incorporated into their wedding. By the end of the night, this is one of my favorite parts of the whole day: "WE DID IT!" And they did it so well! :)

Ceremony Location: Cypress Hotel, Cupertino
Reception Location: Dynasty Seafood Restaurant, Cupertino

Sweet words from my lovely couple:
"Hi Amy,
Tosh and I would like to Thank you for all the help that you provided for us in the past year! A full year of work, dedication, and planning have finally paid off and we are very happy that our wedding day went smoothly. We actually do not know how we would have been able to have our wedding day go smoothly without your help and expertise. We would definitely recommend you to other couples and would let them know that you will make sure that Bride & Groom will enjoy their wedding day instead of stressing out. Thanks Again! :)
Tosh and Jackie Takeda"
