Surprise! Baby #2 arriving in March!

That's right! We're expecting baby #2 in March and we couldn't be happier!! It was definitely unplanned but we're so thankful for God's perfect timing & His provisions for our family. I'm currently at 13-14 weeks and morning sickness was so bad this time around that I almost regretted getting pregnant. But these images are making up for all the nasty vomiting, nausea & headache for the past month and a half.  :)
Hope you enjoy these photos taken by our talented friend, Sam Lim. It was such a last minute decision to take family photos and soooo pleased with how they came out! Thanks Sam for gifting us with these precious images!!!
Yeap, Grant is extremely happy to be a big brother and he kisses my belly every morning! such a cutie!
My husband thinks I need to start contacting modeling agencies for Grant.. lol! I don't know how Sam was able to capture these shots on camera because Grant would NOT sit still! Sam had two other photographers to keep my son entertained and focused! :) 

I think he came out very much like me here ;P

And of course, my hubby has the most awkward smile whenever we're posing... :P I still love you so much, hun!
Leaving you with two of my favorite images.... xoxo, Esther 
Have a great weekend everyone!!

Leslie & Wesley Tie The Knot!

Oh hello readers.. I know it's been so long since my last update and it's about time I reveal some of the summer weddings we've designed & coordinated.  Be sure to check back in a few days why I was MIA for a while! ;)
Leslie & Wesley are perfect for one another and so honored to be a part of their memorable day. I know I need to stop raving about our clients but we seriously attract the most sweetest, generous, loving brides and Leslie is just a perfect example of why we love our job! She was actually a referral from another planner (Thanks Annaha!) and we instantly hit it off from the very first consultation.

Leslie wanted a clean, modern yet traditional decor elements at the Jonathan Club where Wesley grew up spending his summer vacations hanging out at the club with his parents. We had Fleuretica design all the florals (LOVE working with these girls) and Level 4 International provided all the rentals including lighting & lounge furniture. Even my MIL helped us make custom runners for the long tables while Leslie put together all the stationery herself, bought 300 pairs of flip flops for the guests (crazy!) and still managed to look this HOT while finishing up her residency as an OBGYN!
Without further ado, enjoy these lovely pictures from Taek Photography.

how cute is this small wagon for the ring bearer? I attached the pillow at the last minute and I thought it was such a perfect idea, no? :)

I absolutely adore this picture and these little guys did a fantastic job walking down the aisle!!

Wesley serenading Steven Curtis Chapman's song, 'I will be there' to Leslie during the ceremony.. OK. maybe I just love saying their names..     Leslie & Wesley. ;)

Now onto some of the reception details... These images don't do any justice how beautiful everything looked that night! Really wished we had some good overall & detail shots but by the time the 2nd shooter arrived, the guests already took their seats... 

How chic are these white lounge furniture with accent pillows on sand?

Yes... 300 pairs of Old Navy flips we displayed as favors and we only had 10-15 pairs left at the end of the night!!

LOVED our seafoam blue & peach color combination and Flueretica did an awesome job creating all the lush florals!

Probably my favorite sweet heart table set up, it was just SO pretty on Jonathan Club property!

some more B & G shots at the beach... LOVE! :)

We had s'mores station, photobooth, mid night snack & a 9 piece live band from BuzzCats to keep the guests entertained and it sure kept everyone happy!

Hope you got to enjoy this wedding as much as we did! Here's their cute wedding highlight Anything & Everything Productions captured!
