A celebration 7 + 7 years in the making!

There are two main reasons why I wanted to feature Su Zie and Kendrick’s wedding celebration for our October journal page. The first is because they were great fun to work with.

The second reason is they are, hands down, the longest clients we’ve worked with on any event! After 7 years of dating, Su Zie and Kendrick were legally married in San Francisco back in 2015. Because of their work/schooling schedules, they decided to wait until 2020 to have the big celebration. On December 31, 2018, they signed the contract with us to work together on their 2020 event.

Over the nearly 4 years, Su Zie and I spoke on the phone many, many times, often not even touching on wedding details.

It took 7 years to see the event come to fruition but, in October 2022, the day finally arrived and the wedding went off brilliantly. A huge congratulations to the couple and I’m hoping they reach back out when it’s time to plan all the upcoming baby showers, birthday parties, anniversary parties, …
