Two weeks ago, Leah, one of The Double Knot's own, officially tied the knot and did so in style! The event took place at The Diamond Bar Center in Diamond Bar overlooking the beautiful valley just after the rain cleared up. Multiple tints of red roses combined with an asian flair created an event to remember!
The first picture is of Leah becoming the bride! These photos are not professional photos, but they are still a lot of fun!
It truly is amazing how planning a wedding for your own family can feel so different! Fortunately, it felt very easy because we have done so many before. The hardest part was completing the details that we don't normally get to do: creating the guest list, planning speeches, determining seating charts, and posing for pictures! So much fun it was to be on the other side of the camera!
Using great vendors makes a difference at an event where timing is crucial and teamwork is essential. We had over a half dozen vendors come in and transform the entire ballroom in less than two hours! It was gorgeous with the uplighting and floral displays!
Although we planned Leah's wedding ourself, we hired a wedding coordinator to help out on the actual day of the event. Like what we provide for our clients, our coordinator organized the vendors, and gave us peace of mind. We knew that each element of the wedding was in it's place and there was someone there to make sure of it. Besides, the florist and the baker isn't going to set up the guest book table, direct guests, decorate the honeymoon suite, provide an emergency kit or organize the processional and someone has to do it!
