Renee and Nic’s Same Day Edit: Mountain Winery

September 4th, 2012 by Karen Pan | Comment

Since the first time I met Renee and Nic, I found them to be very charming, down-to-earth and adventurous. They’re avid mountain bikers and even leading up to the wedding day Renee was going on extreme rides. So the Mountain Winery in Saratoga served as the perfect backdrop for their wedding celebration where they shared their personal vows overlooking the city. With such a love for life, they share an even more immense love for each other and Martin Vo Studios captured the magic of the day perfectly. Wishing you both a lifetime of more adventures to come, congratulations Renee and Nic!

Hanson and EunMi share the ultimate American success story. Shortly after they got married 4 years earlier in Vegas they decided to go into the restaurant business and started the now famous Cha Cha Sushi in San Jose. After much success and 2 beautiful kids the couple decided to renew their vows with almost 300 of the family and friends at the Ranch Golf Club in San Jose this past March. We had only 4 months to plan but just like everything they touch their big day was a huge hit! Their wedding was true celebration of their incredible journey, current successes and future adventures ahead. Congratulations to Hanson and EunMi!

Ying and Chao: Westin St. Francis

July 10th, 2012 by Karen Pan | Comment

Ying and Chao hold a special place in my heart. They were actually good friends before they started dating and fell in love. When we met for the first time, they were in the early stages of planning and asked if I could help them plan their entire wedding. So for the next 9 months we spent a lot of time together visiting venues, meeting some of best vendors in the Bay Area and just hanging out. I was enchanted by their kindness and love for one another, and I wanted their wedding to be just as magical. The Westin St. Francis in San Francisco was perfect for their stars-in-the-sky themed wedding. The room sparkled and everyone was in awe of the beauty of the day. It was an such an honor to get to know such an amazing couple. Congratulations Ying and Chao!

Van and Luke: The Ranch Golf Club

When Van and Luke told me that they wanted their wedding theme to revolve around their favorite hobby video games, I knew that this would be an unforgettable wedding. True to their fun-loving spirit, they created a quirky and beautiful spin on this theme using Tetris-like blocks and brilliant fuchsia throughout. No detail was too small. The couple made their own keychain favors all with different images of iconic characters and symbols. Guests were treated to an impressive dessert bar with chocolate gold coins and star cookies. Even the ring bearer walked down the aisle as Mario. The most impressive part of their wedding was that Luke actually built an arcade game to entertain his fellow gamers. Everyone had a blast and a new found appreciate for this pastime. Thanks for allowing us to celebrate with you, Van and Luke!

Stefanie and Josh: Silverado Resort and Spa

Stefanie and Josh’s wedding took place on a warm, perfect fall evening at the Silverado Resort and Spa in Napa. This adorable couple who met at church envisioned their wedding to be a great celebration with all their loved ones, and they had an amazing community who all took part in their wedding. The bride’s sister helped with all the stationary and brought together their stunning palette of turquoise, pink and white. Their church choir sung like angels during their wedding ceremony and the reception was packed with performances from family and friends. We had never seen a more talented group! Even the groom’s sister sang a solo that was record label worth. And it’s obvious from this outpouring that their marriage will be filled with abundant laughter, happiness and love. Congratulations Josh and Stef!
