Nancy Liu Chin started wedding planning for friends (and friends of friends) back in the 90’s when she was working as an assistant buyer at Macy’s. She planned a friend’s wedding and says, “From that point on I was fascinated and obsessed with how to transform space.”
She’s been at it ever since, with a guiding philosophy to curate polished, effortless designs that are never boring but never garish. Liu Chin has curated an amazing team of floral designers and artisans who share her passion for the environment and utilization of local resources. She says of her team, “One of the things that I’m most proud of is that we’re strong floral designers so our events are floral heavy! I am so all about the details and about removing distractions to create clean lines and guest-friendly environments.”
A recent cherished event of Chin’s was a surprise wedding she planned for a professional basketball player for her favorite team. “It was extra special for me that he wore the boutonnière that I made when he wasn’t so sure he wanted to wear any flowers on his lapel. It was a nice surprise when I saw him wear it!” she says. Her team enjoyed working with the down-to-earth couple to choose meaningful details all the way down to photo booth décor.
Liu Chin gathers inspiration from her favorite spots in Asia and Mexico. She says, “I love Vietnam because of the rich history and the food!” and everyone who knows her knows that Cabo — especially the One and Only Palmilla — is her happy place.
