Love Letter from Truc & Chris {San Diego Wedding}

In the midst of this crazy wedding season, nothing makes me more energized and happier than getting an email like this from my couples!  This email that Truc sent me was so heartfelt that it literally got my all teary eyed!  I can’t wait to share the pictures of their wedding with you!  As you can see I’m a tad bit behind on blogging!  However, you can always remember to go to my facebook page where I update my status and photos a lot more (it’s so much faster)

From Truc & Chris:

Dear Wynn,

I’ve been meaning to reach out to you earlier – now that the last of out of town family has departed and the dust has settled, I can really have a few moments to properly form my thoughts.

Where do we even begin? No words can properly express the gratitude we have for you and your team. You executed our vision perfectly. Every single one of our guests who we have spoken to since the wedding has told us it was not just one of the best, but the best wedding they have been to. Most importantly to us, our parents were extremely happy. My dad said it was perfect (and he does not express emotions very much), he was so proud of the Vietnamese cultural aspects, he can’t wait to send videos and pictures to our relatives in Vietnam. My mom also asked me to personally send her regards to you.

We also wanted to thank you, Wynn the person, not just the coordinator. You are such a beautiful person inside and out. Your portfolio boasts a multitude of platinum weddings and while ours were nowhere near platinum, you never once treated us any differently and even stretched our budget to make it look more than I envisioned. Not to mention, every single vendor immediately light up when I tell them you were our coordinator and have nothing but praise for you.

I was just telling Chris this morning that I feel so lost now that I don’t have to contact you 5+ times a day asking you for every little thing. Wynn, you were like a sister to me throughout this whole process – I hired a coordinator and unexpectedly gained friend. I hope you don’t mind that I plan to stay in close touch!

Wynn – you were absolutely the best person to entrust one of the most important days of our lives to.

With lots of love and gratitude,

Chris & Truc

Susan & Brett’s Love Note from their wedding at The Grand Del Mar

Last Friday, July 6, 2012 I had the amazing opportunity to be a part of Susan & Brett’s gorgeous wedding at The Grand Del Mar!  They had their reception in the Capella which is one of my favorite rooms at The Grand.  I had the amazing opportunity to work with Susan & Brett for close to a year.  Since they hired me for full service, we embarked on the wedding planning journey together and it was really an honor for me to be a part of it.  This first class black tie affair had so many gorgeous elements…I can’t wait to get the professional pictures back.  Yesterday, they stopped by my house, and dropped of a wonderful gift for me, and more meaningful than anything a heartfelt Thank You note.  The words from the Thank You note is why I do what I do.  Along with the fun of the designing and planning, the gratification I get from a happy couple is more than anything I can ask for.

Here is a sneek peak of their first dance (taken from my iphone) and their Thank You letter.  Don’t you just LOVE the chandelier treatments done by Kathy Wright & Co.?

Susan & Brett, I wish you a lifetime of happiness and joy!

XOXO,

Wynn

White Paper Flowers For Your Wedding!

Hi Everyone,

I have a really fun project that I’m doing for my couple Nancy and Ben who are tying the knot this July at The Santaluz Club!  Their wedding is going to be absolutely gorgeous and one of the fun elements that we are incorporating into the wedding is paper flowers! All white paper flowers to be exact and a whole lot of them =)  I can’t spill the beans so I’ll have to wait for the wedding day to reveal our design.  I just love paper flowers and how romantic they look! Are you interested in getting a tutorial on how to make paper flowers?

If so, you are in luck! Hopefully I’ll have some time tomorrow to put together a tutorial for you.  Below is the flower that I put together.  What are your plans for paper flowers?

I would love to hear your ideas in the comments section below!

XOXO,

Wynn

Ashley & Matt {Wedding at the Rancho Bernardo Inn}

Ashley & Matt are just the sweetest couple! They got married at the Rancho Bernardo Inn which is a gorgeous garden venue in San Diego.  It is pretty well hidden, so I would say it’s a bit of a hidden gem but it’s a large property with beautiful green garden grounds (perfect for pictures)  Ashley wanted a gorgeous formal garden wedding with an old hollywood flair by using black, white, and red for her wedding colors.  They are also huge sport fanatics so we had to throw in some fun baseball touches in there!

The gorgeous florals are by Blush Botanicals and HUGE thank you to Bethann Greenberg for the gorgeous photos!

In keeping with the garden theme, we wanted to keep the wood elements by using the dark wood manzanita branches.  We incorporated the baseball theme by having the escort cards look like baseball tickets.  We had them placed on a bunch of peanuts and in one of our gorgeous wooden trays.  You can’t go to a baseball game without some peanuts!

Ashley & Matt had the traditional head table for their wedding.  A money saving tip is we reused the red pomanders from the ceremony for the head table and also all the bride & bridesmaid bouquets.  I helped Ashley pick out the adorable “stone” vases to hold them.  It brings in the bit of earthy garden feel.

NBC’s “Royal Wedding Inspiration” designed by Wynn Austin {San Diego Wedding Planner}

I just wanted to share some behind the scenes pictures of when we were interviewed by NBC in regards to the Royal Wedding.  There is always so much work that goes behind the scenes that most people do not see.  I tell brides this all the time.  When you are a guest at the wedding, you have no idea how much work has gone into make the wedding as beautiful and smooth as it is.  But that’s the whole point! We don’t want you to know =)  and we don’t want the bride and groom to know either! It’s their day to enjoy with their friends and family!

That applies to interviews and photoshoots as well!  To prepare for this interview, I had to wake up at 4am to get ready, and for those of you that know me, I am not an early bird!  We had to set up the table while the news anchors were airing live right next to us so we had to be super quiet when we were setting everything and tried not to have the plates clanking along.  Then when we were ready to go live, we got news that Obama may go on air any second and that I would be cut! Yikes!  Luckily I got to air (shorter than anticipated) but right after I finished, it went straight to Obama’s speech.  Candice our assistant joked that I opened for Obama!  It was funny, but the topics we talked about were totally unrelated. =)  Of course I haven’t factored in the design time, meeting with the amazing vendors that helped me with this, and picking up all the items, packing and unpacking the car (and trying to look cute!)  It all worked out and I had a great time! So I hope you enjoy the pictures and dont’ forget to check out the video if you haven’t already.
