While receiving an award at a business summit in Dana Point, David told the crowd of over three hundred people how much Wendi had influenced and bettered his business. Then, David called Wendi up on stage and asked her to be his wife with the cheering crowd in the background.

Although they loved each wedding detail – from the vibrant lighting and palm trees to lavish gold lanterns – they truly cherished their first dance together as husband and wife.

Vendor Ingenuity Spotlight with Krystel Tien of Couture Events

Name: Krystel Tien
Title: Founder & Creative Director
Company Name: Couture Events

Vendor Ingenuity | Sara France Photography via

I started my business in…

This is how it came to be & A little bit about my background…
Krystel was born and raised in sunny San Diego, CA. She received her degree in Communications with a minor in Public Relations at Point Loma Nazarene University.  Krystel spent several years in the fashion and entertainment industry, working with some of the top modeling agencies, fashion designers, and FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising) before stepping into the world of events where she freelanced with one of the most prestigious event production companies, Events International Company, in Malibu, CA .

In 2008, she was able to combine her love for fashion and events by founding Couture Events! Coming from the world of fashion where couture is everything, she wanted to combine all of the elements of couture into her events: quality, handmade, gorgeous, unique, and glamorous. Her reputation has grown quickly as she is now one of the most sought after wedding coordinators in the San Diego area.

The flower or décor element I never tire of…
Peonies and lace.

My favorite wedding color palette combination is…
Blush, ivory and gold.

One or two words to describe my style…
Timeless and sophisticated.

My best advice to couples for the big day…
Enjoy every moment of it! Don’t let the little things get to you and let us take care of the big things.

If I could have any other occupation in the world, I would…
Be a fashion designer.

If I had no limits, my dream vacation would be…
Coordinating a wedding in Paris, France.

My favorite holiday is…
Easter! My favorite flowers are in bloom and everyone is wearing pastels.

After catching an afternoon movie, Barbara and her friend went to a nearby café for dessert. While they enjoyed their treats, Barbara saw Frank walk into the café, and the two ended up chatting for the rest of the evening. Frank recalls that he knew Barbara was the one he had been waiting for all along.

An extravagant oceanfront villa magnified the intensity of this luxuriously intimate wedding celebration.
