Cameron had been referred to me through some Googlers who knew me from my Google days, and I was so stoked to work with him and his fiance Paul! They had a date and a venue booked, and once I found out it was Chambers SF, I knew I wanted to be involved. I LOVE that venue and had always wanted to plan a wedding there, so finally had my chance!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
Sometimes you plan weddings and have amazing clients, and just sometimes those clients become your very good friends. I’m so thankful to have met Ning & Noah and helped plan their beautiful and intimate Mission District wedding. Read More
When Nika & Patrick contacted me I was immediately excited about their wedding vision, which they described as a “music festival themed wedding complete with food trucks and ferris wheels” (!!). The couple had met at Coachella so wanted their wedding to reflect the interactive, casual, music festival vibe with strong Filipino & Mexican themes throughout. 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
It’s always a joy when my clients take me back to my alma mater, UC Berkeley. As a Berkeley alum, I’m excited to now be one of the preferred planners for their onsite wedding & event venue, The Faculty Club. Funny story, I actually graduated on the Faculty Club lawn from the Philosophy Department back in the day!
An eco-conscious couple, Grace & Colby were inspired by all the beautiful trees and nature surrounding the Faculty Club and wanted wildflower-inspired florals that looked like they were freshly foraged. We incorporated natural elements into all their decor from dried flowers on the signage, wooden frames, green leaves as escort cards, and the beautiful (and giant) hanging wreath designed by Juna Alinea.Read More
We had so much fun designing and planning Tyler & Joliz’s Red Barn Ranch wedding in Hopland, CA! Tyler and Joliz were one of the sweetest couples and their love for one another was always so clear and present. They had met, dated, and had a connection before but timing wasn’t right. Then a serendipitous LinkedIn message helped reconnect them at the perfect time, and they were inseparable ever since.
For every decision we made for the wedding, whether it be gold forks to white lanterns, there was a sparkle in their eyes full of excitement and joy. That joy was even more present on the big wedding day and I loved every minute of it.
We also loved this wedding since it was a truly Endeavors Collective wedding with Make it Mariko, Juna Alinea, and officiant Alvin Rosales all collaborating to make it a success. Congratulations Tyler & Joliz!
At the beginning of the summer Junalene and I started brainstorming concepts and planning for a Pride-inspired Photoshoot. This would be the first photoshoot that we did as Endeavors Collective! We wanted to showcase our same sex couple clients during a month dedicated to celebrating their love and right to marry, and also show solidarity as allies for our LGBT clients and friends after the tragic events that occurred in Orlando.
It’s been a crazy summer and I’m finally able to blog and share some of my favorite shoot photos with you, including some behind-the-scenes shots! We had so many amazing partners on board for the shoot and I couldn’t be happier how it all turned out.
