Wedding planner, cool aunt of little Texans, lover of all things love, and obsessed with espresso.


Jeff and Erin introduced me to Skype the day that I received an inquiry from them. They are Americans living in Australia who were planning a wedding in Los Angeles. I created a Skype account and they hired me. God bless technology!
They infused their humor and their personality into every part of their wedding. From the production of their EPIC and famous save-the-date video, to the bilingual invitation hand painted by Erin’s mom, to the fusion menu chosen to reflect their Chinese/Vietnamese and Greek heritage, to the to die for Claire Pettibone wedding gown, the funky venue of Marvimonhouse, the English/Vietnamese wedding ceremony complete with a tea ceremony, to the kung-fu movie played on the screen as Jeff’s parents danced a Paso Doble then transitioned into a Greek social dance, I have to say, this wedding was truly epic.

Erin and Jeff’s wedding was also featured on Junebug Weddings yesterday! To read more about their day, visit the Junebug BLOG
