People often ask me why I named my company “New Sunrise Events”. Well when I started my company back in 2007 I was embarking on a grand new adventure and pursuing my passion in wedding planning. So I thought the name was a perfect celebration of my new chapter and also a reflection of my clients’ as they enter in marriage. I’ve had a few more “sunrises” since then and most recently I welcomed the newest chapter: my twins boys, Isaac and Ethan. They have captured my heart in every way and life has never been more exciting, challenging and rewarding at the same time. All thanks be to God who abundantly pours out His love onto us!
Boy do I have a treat for you today! My adorable cousin Tiffany and her now husband Jimmy recently got married at the Maitland Art Center in Florida. As Virginian natives they wanted a destination wedding at the happiest place on earth Disney World with all their family and friends. This was perfect setting for these high school sweethearts who just love making each other laugh and being silly together. Their wedding ceremony had so many personal touches and guests were treated to food trucks plus a full weekend in the theme park. They were gracious to share their heartwarming video slideshow from Root Photography. And I also thought it would be fun for Tiffany to share what it was like to plan a destination wedding and give any advice for those of you who might be thinking of doing the same. Check out our full interview below:
With the temperature quickly dropping here in the Bay Area, I thought of all you winter brides who get to take advantage of all the fun fashion options. We might not get snow here but that doesn’t mean you can’t be a beautiful Winter Princess. Try adding crystals, lace or feathers to your accessories. Bundle up with a nice fur shawl or even strap on some warm boots. Even the smallest detail will be as if you stepped straight out of the Nutcracker.
Andy and I have so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving! Our company continues to grow and we’ve been blessed with such AMAZING clients. We celebrated our 5th year anniversary and our biggest blessing is that we will be expecting not one, but TWO baby boys before the end of the year! That’s right, we are expecting twins and super excited to share some maternity shots captured by the talented Hannah Suh Photography. I will be officially on maternity leave starting 12/1 until May 2014. We will still be taking inquiries for Month to Day of Coordination for the later half of 2014. However we apologize in advance for any delay in replying to your emails as we welcome our new babies. Thank you so much everyone for your constant love and support! Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Kamla and Ryan is that gorgeous couple that always makes your heart melt when you see them together. They wanted a homey setting for their wedding tucked in the urban city and instantly fell in love with the historic General’s Residence at the Fort Mason Center. Their ceremony was magical overlooking the water and Alcatraz island, under big oak trees. And I just loved Kamla’s cascading bouquet, silhouette gown and lace bridesmaids dresses. Guests were treated to two buffet options, southern BBQ in honor of the groom and Indian cuisine in honor of bride, and everyone danced the night away illuminated by the night sky. Couldn’t be more happy for such a perfect couple! Congratulations Kamla and Ryan!(more…)
