Sigh. Emails like the below make my week and my month! They put a smile on my face and happiness in my heart! Nick & Kai-Ting got married back in July at the beautiful Casa Romantica in San Clemente and they took the time to write the below email to me. Enjoy these teaser photos from the talented Lane Dittoe!
I want to reach out and let you know our thoughts on our wedding and your role in it.
First, we could not have pulled off the wedding without you. We were two very busy attorneys planning from across the country. You can tell by the number of times you were mentioned in the speeches that our friends and family understood the amount of work you put into our wedding.
Second, we greatly enjoyed the planning process with you. You are wonderful to work with. I appreciate that you are organized, personable, funny and sweet but also have this no-nonsense attitude when it comes to getting stuff done. The day of the wedding, I just relaxed and let things happen because I completely trusted you would take care of any hiccups that arose.
Third, thank you for the great vendors you introduced to us. We have told all our friends about the funny stories we heard from Holly and Becky about their flower shop. Those two sweethearts do beautiful things with flowers. Even though I didn’t have the vocabulary to express what I wanted, through my mumbling, they got my vision exactly. Jill from Copper Willow designed such incredible invitations! When you first told me about Found Rentals, I had no idea why a person would want vintage furniture for a wedding. Lauren from Found was awesome – she picked up on my style and suggested great options. One of my friends was so taken by the lounge area at the wedding, it inspired her to find vintage pieces for a baby shower she was planning. My Sweet and Saucy produced delicious and beautiful cakes and were so easy to deal with. We also got compliments from guests about Lee the DJ. As for Blue Kite Cinema, Nick and I both think – best decision ever. We are thrilled with the product they gave us and are so thankful you told us about them.
I received Lane’s pictures yesterday, and I saw some of the décor for the first time (was too busy chatting away on the wedding day to do a proper tour around the venue). I noticed how beautifully everything was setup and how you re-used flowers and other things once we were done with one space and moved to the next. That made me realize there were so many little things you did on the wedding day that I didn’t know about. Thank you for taking care of it all.
Lastly, I want to share a memory from our wedding. At the end of the night, Nick and I ended up being the last of all our friends and family to leave the venue. We saw everyone off on the shuttle and made sure a couple of stragglers got rides back to their hotel. My friend Jamie even rode in our limo with us. It was the best way to leave our wedding that we could have hoped for. At the beginning of our planning, we told you that we envisioned a fancy dinner party. It really did feel like we were at home, seeing all our guests off at the end of a brilliant night.
We are very grateful for you and your wonderful team, Nira, Katelynn and Lacey. We know that this is just the beginning of a new chapter in our lives, but how amazing to have it start with such a perfect moment.
Kai-Ting and Nick”
