I loved Hillary and Stuart from our first meeting at Blue Danube cafe on Clement Street. They were huge Warriors fans, also lived in Inner Richmond (before I moved), and we clicked immediately and felt like old friends. Hillary had grown up at Japantown’s JCCCNC (Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California), so they were naturally getting married at Japantown. But the tricky part was the reception would be at the JCCCNC in a newly remodeled basketball gym! Read More
Amber & Emma found me through my website, but it was truly meant to be as Emma worked at Google (my former job, which I had just quit), and I clicked with both her an her fiance Amber immediately. Their families were coming from out of town, and their vision was to have a California coastal experience for them – either with redwoods, the ocean, or wine tasting. Read More

What an incredible day out in the sun! Bluxome Street Fair was greeted by a clear sky and great energy on Sunday October 14th.
Recently we helped our client, Alexandria Real Estate, to launch a new community center on Bluxome Street as part of their community outreach plan. To celebrate the launch of the new center, along with the amazing Bluxome Street businesses, we partnered with Plinth Agency to come up with a NEW event called Bluxome Street Fair. Neighboring businesses and even the fire station opened up shop and showcased their goods and services. Many of our community partners also joined us with booths along the street, including San Franciscans for Sports and Recreation, Bay Area Science Festival, Getaround, Hellofresh, and Xfinity.Read More
It’s been a month since the inaugural Entrepinays Summit happened, and I’m still feeling the energetic after-effects of this momentous day. The day after the event happened, I posted something to Facebook expressing pure JOY, happiness, inspiration, and just AWE at the beauty of the event and more importantly, the PINAYS who were a part of it.
This day was truly POWERFUL. Gathering 130 FILIPINA women, Pinay entrepreneurs & aspiring entrepreneurs in one room at Covo, grounded in sisterhood and #pinayism, grounded in love and openness, and with the sole purpose of building community and lifting each other up. WOW. As it was happening and especially after, I had a feeling in my gut that this day was going to be a DEFINING MOMENT in my life. I’m still confident that is the case.Read More

I met Sam & Nam on a camping trip that I was invited on my by cousin. I loved them from the start. So when they reached out for help with planning their wedding, I was overjoyed to help! Their vision was simple: a beautiful day with family and friends, among the Berkeley trees, and honoring family. Piedmont Community Hall was the perfect venue for this intimate vision, with their onsite Japanese Tea House, outdoor patio, and ceremony space under the Berkeley trees. Read More
