Huyen & Joshua's Asian Inspired Wedding at Moss Denver
Let me start by saying that this was my absolute favorite wedding this year! Not only did we have a blast but this couple trusted me and my vision whole heartedly and the day was actually completely perfect and surpassed all my expectations. Anywhoooo, Huyen and Joshua are two nerdy Android app developers that were set up by their former boss! They have been together for 10 years and finally tied the knot on August 17th at Moss Denver! Huyen wanted to showcase her asian culture but make it super modern. Huyen had two wedding dresses one a traditional Vietnamese wedding dress complete with a head dress and a bright red body hugging gown with a gold dragon embroidered detail. This girl changed outfits six times during the day, but both looks were stunning. Huyen’s bridesmaids wore traditional Vietnamese outfits and Joshuas groomsmen rocked classic suits. When it came time to walk down the aisle after the couples first look these guys actually danced down the aisle. Each showing off their uniqueness. Like how fun? These love birds were married by the wonderful Reverend Kim and in true nerd fashion Joshua knocked off Huyen’s head dress when he went in for the kiss. Guests enjoyed a long cocktail hour complete with a full Whiskey and old fashioned bar by Oak and Olive. We hired the amazing Arthur at Babylon Floral who we sat with for hours during the planning process while he took everything in and created the most beautiful sketches that blew our original thoughts out of the water! Each centerpiece was assembled on site and each was completely different and unique. For dinner, guests were served a family style dinner of Bao Buns, Shrimp and Grits, and Flatiron steak. The brides mother made all three of her cakes. Not only did she make them but she flew them here in suitcases from Maryland. I know your probably thinking that they weren’t good because of that but they SO were! After the food Huyen and Joshua gave a talk, complete with a power point presentation. This is what they do for a living so they wanted to incorporate it into their special day. Then the bride and groom shocked their guests with a surprise choreographed hip hop dance that they absolutely killllled! After that guests danced the night away and enjoyed ice cream from High Point Creamery and authentic beignets from Footers Catering. Seriously the best day ever!
Here is what Huyen and Joshua had to say about working with Promise Event Planners.
(I think they kinda like us!)
“Payton Bernstine and Promise Event Planners are absolutely amazing. Hiring Payton to do full coordination for us is absolutely the best decision that we made, second only to deciding to get married! I wasn't the kind of bride that had a full vision or even knew what she wanted sometimes, but Payton helped us figure out how to make our wedding uniquely us, and made the whole experience fun and way less stressful. So many times I would turn to my fiancé (now husband) and say, "Hey, planning a wedding is pretty fun!"
Often I would give Payton some vague notions, and she would come back with the perfect vendor for us or an amazing suggestion that we instantly loved. I really feel that she truly listened and thought about what we would like and executed on it.
I'm generally very shy and reserved about expressing when I like or don't something, but Payton made me feel totally safe and free to express my opinions and ask questions, even ones that I thought were silly. She was always encouraging and helpful. She took care of the more stressful details for us and let us know exactly what we needed to do. Payton was also attentive and available, providing prompt responses via email or text.
Just in general Payton is a consummate professional with the skills, knowledge, experience, and savvy. All of our vendors said the same thing: "Payton is the best." And I am saying the same.
We had an amazing wedding. It was everything that we wanted and SO much more because of her.
And just as a person, Payton is fun, smart, and funny. My husband and I already miss her!”
