Inspirations that helped create the vibe of your wedding?  

We wanted a wine country get-away feel that was elegant but not fussy and that would encourage our guests to mingle for the weekend.

What were your most memorable wedding moments? 

Sitting with every table during dinner and being able to spend quality time with each guest; Dancing with our parents.

Cake: Perfect Endings

DIY elements:  We made the escort cards, and non-floral decorations, quilt squares.  The most fun to make were probably the escort cards.  We enjoyed spending the time together  hand-making all of those paper roses and assembled the leaves, stems, and  "vases".  The most rewarding was making the quilt as a keepsake.  Everyone who attended the wedding wrote a message on a fabric square. 

Advice that you’d give to other Brides? Our day-of wedding coordinator was amazing and I couldn't imagine doing without one.  We had less than 70 guests and this allowed us to splurge on food and weekend festivities that everyone would enjoy.  Having a smaller wedding also allowed us to visit with everyone and enjoy their company throughout the weekend. If you are custom-designing any stationary, proof-read everything and double check fonts carefully!

V. Sattui Winery | Napa Wedding | Ji + Ken

Photography by Ingrid and Jerry

Three weeks before their wedding at V. Sattui Winery in Napa, Ken emailed me to ask me if I can do him a favor.  I thought it would be a photographic favor but instead he asked me if I could help him translate his vows into Korean.  Ken doesn't speak a lick of Korean and he's not from a Korean family, so this was a very interesting request.  I know he wanted to show Ji's family how much he loves Ji, but I thought he was nuts!  I thought that with his busy law school schedule, there wasn't enough time for him to memorize a whole page of vows in another language in only a few weeks.  I was genuinely worried for him.  I sent the vows to my dad and also some friends in Korea.  Then I combined the two formal and informal translations into one for Ken to memorize.  On the day of the wedding, while Ken was getting dressed, I went over his pronunciation.  During the ceremony, his brother held up white cards translating his Korean vows into Englsih.  Everyone, especially Ji's parents, were extremely impressed.  I could not believe he pulled it off!  I've seen a lot of wedding vows but Ken's will definitely be one that I remember for the rest of my life!
