As an event producer it’s always a pleasure to work with busy clients, because as the old saying goes, “If you want something done, ask a busy person to do it”! That’s how planning a wedding in 4 months actually can work, if you team up with the right partners and have decisive clients. That’s what happened with Hayin and Chad for their Indian Summer Wedding in Berkeley, for 140 guests. Hayin a powerhouse of a bride, wanted the design to reflect her Korean heritage with incredible pops of color, set on a rustic Northern California backdrop of neutral tones, olive branches, and farm-to-table cuisine. If you know me just a little, you know I’m crazy about dogs, and so is Hayin. Especially their Tibetan Terrier who of course joined the event and had a very special outfit to mark the occasion. Any wedding with a dog is a wedding I want to be at!
The breathtaking view at Skyfall Panoramic Hills (now closed) pretty much overwhelms you when you first arrive, making the ceremony completely awe-inspiring. Chad’s friend, a chef from SF, cooked in an open fire near the reception, which flooded the space with delicious aromas. Hayin’s aunt is a florist from out of town but came up early to help fill vases with the bright dahlia’s we ordered from Thomas Family Farms in Half Moon Bay. More friends helped with ceremony and cocktail hour live performances, and a DJ friend flew from NYC (now living in SF and offering awesome DJ services) with his vinyl to kick the party into high gear.
With some DIY touches, friends helping out, and savvy purchasing, Hayin knocked it out of the park keeping her wedding budget in check, while having the wedding of her dreams!
We were thrilled to have Hayin and Chad’s wedding featured in Smitten Magazine. Head over here for the article.
