Tasting... on behalf of the couple!

The couple I mentioned on this post took my suggestion and decided to go with Cicada for their wedding!
Since they live in NY and couldn't find the time to come to LA for tasting, I was asked to do the tasting for them! Lucky me. 

I took my fiance as my lucky guest, and we were stuffed. From appetizer to main course, along with wine pairing, they took care of us really good. A day later, writing this, I'm still FULL.

Solo Wedding Coordination DEBUT!

It's been too long since I last updated the blog. But I'm back!! And this year, I finally started coordinating weddings on my own! Not as an assistant. I'm the MAIN person.

First one is my dear friend Tomomi & Shawn's intimate wedding at a private estate in Malibu in October.

It was such a beautiful and heart-warming wedding. I was reminded why people do weddings, and why I LOVE weddings so much.

Tips I learned from Gianna regarding having a wedding at a private estate helped a lot on this wedding. There are a couple things I wish I did differently (like, almost forgetting to give the bride the bouquet before she walked down the aisle), but I think it went fairly well for doing it for the first time. Most of all, I learned so much from this experience. I was very happy to be a part of their special day.
