I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

Quynh and Ben’s wedding was a global affair as they hosted friends and family from all over the world, including Canada, Hong Kong, Spain, and Los Angeles. Their gorgeous wedding planned by Meggie Francisco Events  was held at Four Seasons Resort and Club, Las Colinas pampered guests in a glamorous affair that just oozed elegance! We know you are going to love the images shot by Tracy Enoch Photography.

What made the wedding special and unique?

The atmosphere inside the church and at the Four Seasons ballroom was filled with love and unconditional support from our family and dearest friends. It meant a lot for us to have our grandparents with us, especially his grandma who flew all the way from Hong Kong at the age of 85 to be with us.

What was unique was our tea ceremony at his parents home right before the Rehearsal Dinner. There were approximately 100 people in attendance (some flew in from Hong Kong, Canada, Spain and LA). It was the most intimate evening for the both of us.


Tell us about the gown and where/how you found it!

The gown designer is Ezoani, fit and flare mermaid style with lace and tulle. I found it at Circle Park Bridal with my mom and sister. My amazing mom sews so I got her to fix the dress (many times) to fit my body the way I wanted to fit!


What were some touches added to make it personal?

My favorite color combination is gold, ivory, blush so I had the flowers, the chairs and the Photo Booth backdrop to fit the theme. I also love dahlias, peonies and astilbes so those were the main flowers in our bouquets. The music were mixed with some jazzy tunes and some classics from Elton John, The Beatles, Bee Gees, etc. At the cocktail hour we also had Jennifer Perryman play a few Bossa Nova.
What was the most memorable part of the day?

Since Ben and I skipped “the first look”, that moment when we saw each other for the first time at church was the most memorable. Everyone started crying when Ben began to tear up as I walked in.


Tell us how you met and became engaged.

We met at a graduation pool party dying the summer of 2012. The next day Ben asked me out to dinner and ever since then we hung out everyday. After a year and a half of dating, he surprised me with a trip to Paris. He then proposed in our home when we got back from our Paris trip on Christmas Day. That same night we announced the big news at Ben’s parents Christmas party.

Luna and Carlos chose The Washington Club, a historic country club in the bride’s hometown, for the backdrop of their lovely wedding day.  We’re really loving their style—classic with sweet, modern details. Leila Brewster was on hand to capture all of the gorgeous details and we know you are going to love the romance and pale pink glow of the day!

What made the wedding special and unique?

I loved how intimate and personal the wedding felt. The day was a true extension of my husband and myself, from the music to the decor. It was extremely challenging to have kept the guest list under fifty, but I loved that we were able to spend time with each individual person that night. The venue was extremely special because it’s in my hometown area and I remember my mother telling me years ago, “I hope that you’ll get married here.” I was so excited for Carlos’ family and friends to explore where I grew up!

Also, Jessica Tocko from A Polished Plan was incredible. She made the entire process from beginning to end so enjoyable. I’ll never forget the moment I walked into the venue and saw my vision so beautifully executed thanks to the team at A Polished Plan.







Tell us about the gown and where/how you found it!

Choosing the gown was overwhelming for me! I probably tried on fifty and felt like I could have continued trying them on forever. There are so many beautiful options out there and eventually I just said, “Ok, I feel amazing in this and it’s sparkly, so I’m done!” I found the dress at House of Botticelli in Bronxville, where my sister in law found her dress 15 years ago. I loved that it was from a NYC designer, Paula Varsalona, who does all her work in-house.






What were some touches added to make it personal?

My father is a glassblower and sculptor. He’d made a gorgeous handblown wedding goblet with two stems that Carlos and I drank out of and toasted to in unison. Our wedding favors were hand blown pyramids also made by my father, meant to be placed in your home or office to attract good luck. One of my favorite DIY elements were the escort feathers, which were dipped in gold glitter and placed in a box of moss. We love seeing the feathers and pyramids displayed in our friend’s homes!





What was the most memorable part of the day?

After the ceremony and pictures, Carlos and I snuck up to a lofted section of the venue for a private moment together. We looked down on the setup just as the candles were being lit, right before guests were to arrive for cocktails. We sipped champagne and looked at each other with big goofy smiles thinking, “We are married! Look at our wedding! This is really happening!” It was a sweet moment and a great suggestion from a friend who said to take some time alone together to reflect on the glory of it all.




Tell us how you met and became engaged.

Carlos and I met during the summer of 2011 in the middle of an epic heat wave. We had both escaped NYC and were at a pool party in Sag Harbor. With a little encouragement from my best friend, I swam up to Carlos and introduced myself. He claims he was about to do the same but there’s no denying that I was totally the initiator! We spent the afternoon talking in the pool until we were prunes and then went out dancing that night. He immediately took me out to dinner the very next night when we returned to the city and we’ve been inseparable from that weekend on. On Carlos’ birthday nearly 2 years after we met, he proposed at home by tying a pink ribbon onto our cat Eleanor’s collar that read, “Will you please marry my Dad?” It has truly been nothing short of a fairytale since day one together!

Brittany and Cameron’s nautical-inspired wedding day was an energetic blend of preppy stripes and seashore styling. Situated on a cliff overlooking Dana Point Harbor, Cannons Seafood Grill was the perfect venue for their event.  We love the way the bride wove her wedding day vision through all the details and Sposto Photography captured each and every special moment. Anchors aweigh!

What made the wedding special and unique?

What made our wedding special and unique was the fact that I planned it all. I had a vision of every single detail that I wanted and spent every single weekend finding and collecting pieces to add to our wedding décor details. If it wasn’t for my god mother to put my thoughts to life and make it happen the wedding details would not be as amazing as it was, she nailed every single detail and truly captured the nautical theme wedding I had always envisioned!




Tell us about the gown and where/how you found it!

After numerous wedding gown appointments my mom suggested to check out Davids Bridal as a last chance. I agreed. It was just me and my mom that day and I must have tried on at least 10 dresses and the one I picked was originally the very first dress I tried on, after hours pass by you tend to forget what dresses you have tried on. Well needless to say it came back around and I ended up trying it on and both my mom and I cried, it was the one!






What were some touches added to make it personal?

A few touches that made our wedding personal was we had our dear friend Marcus marry us which made it truly special because he really knew us and in engaged us not only to each other but to our friends and family that attended and made it very personal. Also, my husband and I wrote our own vows to each other which was very special.



What was the most memorable part of the day?

Most memorable part of the day was me waiting on top of the stairs to meet my father to walk me down the aisle. As I was walking down and he captured “his” first look he bursted into tears, I have never seen my father cry so for me I lost it! Of course I got myself together and walking hand in hand with my father down the aisle to marry my husband was truly a feeling that was so memorable and filled with love and happiness, I will never forget that amazing moment.




Tell us how you met and became engaged.

Well I knew of my husband in high school, I had a secret crush on him! He was a couple years older so he had no clue who I was. Years later and after college we were introduced through some friends and the rest was history, we fell in love! Four years later on February 13th which we all know was the day before Valentine’s Day (he threw me off guard!) I came home to a house lit up with candles and flowers everywhere! (It was just breath taking) He got on one knee and proposed, it was the best day and truly special.

Christina and Mike selected Salt Air Farm as the backdrop for their outdoor garden wedding. The scenery was definitely picturesque, but we love how the couple encouraged their guests to interact with the farmland—yard games in the lawn, tractor rides and fruit picking. How often does one pick their own nectarines at a wedding…or ever?! We’re so excited to share Photography by Verdi’s beautiful images of Christina and Mike’s big day.

What made the wedding special and unique?

Everything! The location, the flowers, the colors, the details, the family, the friends, the weather… Perhaps the most unique aspect about it was that it was so comfortable for everyone in attendance but wasn’t so overly lax as to be considered a “casual” affair. The nectarine picking since we were at an active fruit farm was really memorable for our friends with kids, but the lawn games during and after cocktail hour were another fun activity to get our guests in the swing of things!

Tell us about the gown and where/how you found it!

My dress was an understated but beautiful vintage lace gown I purchased at at a benefit for Brides for Breast Cancer. I had a fantastic time with my bridesmaids. We enjoyed champagne and hors d’oeuvres while scouring their selection and unanimously selected the dress I wore to my wedding! All proceeds from the gowns sold that evening go toward research to prevent, treat, and cure breast cancer–it’s really nice, considering how much we all spend on our weddings, that some of it can go to a good cause.

What were some touches added to make it personal?

One personal touch was including our nephews and nieces in the ceremony! My husband rebuilt an antique wagon to have the children pulled down the aisle, right up to where we were married, under a beautiful weeping willow and draped fabric. We also hand-made lemon-accented center pieces to match our yellow accent color (and lemon bars from Magnolia for dessert!) and we even had fresh Sangria made from fruit on the farm!

What was the most memorable part of the day?

The single most memorable part might have been when our Best Man and Maid of Honor gave the toast together. It was so touching and heartfelt, and had some humor to it but was just so sweet and happy and loving that it was impossible not to have it make a mark on our memories forever.

Speaking of our Best Man and Maid of Honor, they are married–and we met at their wedding! Mike was the best man and I was a bridesmaid, we connected instantly and talked and laughed all night.
