Cindy & James

September 21, 2016

Oh, where do I begin? Planning with Cindy and James was really a dream. I probably say this about all my couples (and because it’s true!) but they are so sweet and lovely. They are so kind and genuine and instantly make you feel like you’ve been friends with them, since forever. 😉 Cindy and James, thank you for embracing me and allowing me to play an integral role in your wedding. Our planning journey was very memorable and I will cherish the memories of our fun meetings with never ending jokes and laughter, late night pie tasting, and your kindness extended to David, Kailynn, and I. (I got pregnant with Kailynn in the middle of our planning but Cindy and James were ever so understanding and patient with me). You are an inspiration of the couples I want to attract and hope to work with and love on! 🙂

Enjoy the photos from Linda Arredondo. The ceremony took place at the Japanese American National Museum and the reception on the rooftop of a private commercial estate with the strikingly beautiful Downtown LA skyline as the background. Sadly, the reception venue is not available but it makes their wedding that much more special and truly a one-of-a-kind wedding!  And might I add that the wedding was a labor of love! James, the owner of Café Dulce in Little Tokyo, had his plate full with the construction and grand opening of Café Dulce Dos yet he still managed to be involved as much as he could and cut, built, and stained the custom wood backdrop for our lounge vignette. He brought in the gorgeous wooden table that was originally used to station his espresso machine at his pop-up shop to be used for our pie bar, along with the adorable white and brown desk from home for their mad-libs station. Installation of this wedding spanned over two very very hot 100+ degree days and could not have been made possible without the hard work and awesome team of A Rental Connection, Argyle Staffing, Top Quality Rentals, Flower Allie, The Park’s Finest BBQ, Found Rentals, Modern 8 Films, DJ Selectra.

Let me end by saying, Mexican fruit cart. Enough said. 😉
