jennifer + quoc | wedding | pelican hill resort | newport beach

jennifer & quoc celebrated their 10 year wedding anniversary by having a beautiful reception at the pelican hill resort in newport coast, california. since jennifer & quoc didn’t have wedding celebration when they got married with friends and family, they wanted to make this the wedding reception they never had 10 years ago. family and friends flew in from all over the us and vietnam to celebrate with jennifer, quoc, and their adorable son, johnathan.

morning lavender | women’s fashion boutique | corona del mar

my friend, kim le, over at lace & locks, opened up an adorable and affordable online women’s boutique, morning lavender, a few months ago and they just had their first pop-up shop in corona del mar a couple of weeks ago.

i love that kim le curates all the beautiful pieces herself and also styles her own lookbook. the pop-up shop was a great way to see, feel, and try on pretty clothes and also meet kim le. my current favorite pair of jeans are from morning lavender and they’re named after me! so sweet! seriously, the perfect pair of boyfriend jeans. check them out here.

below are some photos from morning lavender’s first pop-up shop:

venue // social beauty lounge
clothing & jewelry // morning lavender
hair & makeup // beauty by angelina
photographer // mimi nguyen
florals // flowers by helen
cupcakes // taylor cake creations
cotton candy // dollys cotton candy
linens //
music & dj // djz productions
