Any other of your wedding vendor(s) you’d like to call out that we missed in the above questions? Yes, our bartender from Shake it Up Bartending, Sharan Singh.
Also, a very huge thank you to cousin, Jamie Kong, who helped tremendously. From a year of planning to the very day. She has wonderful crafty and creative ideas and the input was appreciated. She helped me organize the days before to the very BIG day, from set-up crew to organizing crew to clean-up crew, just my everything crew.
