There are countless weddings that I will always treasure but this one will remain one of my all time favorite because of the wonderful couple Joanna and Chris who made the process of wedding planning so smooth and enjoyable. Of course what makes a couple so wonderful to work with starts with trust. I don’t often get a client who doesn’t need to meet with me because they put their trust in their planner who hand picked their team.
Through their planner Michelle Chen Miyairi, all the flowers were planned via emails and phone calls. (Talk about incredible! ) It helps that Michelle and I go way back. She came out of retirement to plan this wedding so I knew it took a special client for Michelle to agree to it.
Prior to this wedding, Michelle and I were quite familiar with each other’s design style as well as work style…especially when I also was the floral designer for her sister’s wedding. Because of the experiences that we had, we started the wedding design built on trust and respect. In this business you need that to create a flawless wedding.
Such ease was created because Michelle (with the couple’s okay) had also picked some of the best vendors that I have worked with as well. They include Jasmine Lee as the photographer, Aimee Lam as the Hair and Makeup artist. Cooking and catering was Jessica Laskey who has become one of my go to recommendations for catering. B R Cohn, the venue, is also managed by Victoria Campbell who I knew from Oh So Inspired’s workshops where she was our venue go to person. Victoria, of course, greeted my team and I with warmth and made us feel like working at B R Cohn was a home away from home.
Teamwork happens when you love the vendors you work with.
Finishing out the team was videographer Kevin Chin who I am married to. This was a solid team of experienced vendors who combined have 1000s of weddings under their belts so no wind, on cloudy and overcast weather would dampen the brightness of this couple and their wedding guests.
