“Mai and Julius are every photographer’s {or any wedding vendor} dream client. Not only are they gorgeous people, inside AND out, but they have incredible style and a dreamy wedding day vision! They found the most scenic venue in Southern California and Mai’s creative mind filled in all of the blank spaces. Her DIY skills are on point! Everything from the party favors, signage and gift boxes for the wedding party were DIY projects. They know how to throw a great party and the entire day made me feeling all warm and fuzzy inside!” –Shelly Anderson Photography

What is your favorite wedding day memory?

Jules and I both agreed our favorite wedding day memory was exchanging our vows during the ceremony. It was the most intense and exciting half hour of our lives. My heart was about to pound out of my chest, and he was squeezing my hands the whole time.

What did you DIY for your wedding?

We DIY’d almost everything! Wedding signage, invitations, matches, drink stirrers, ceremony programs, wedding hangers, wedding party gifts, cocktail napkins and many more!

Any advice for brides currently in the planning process?

Don’t stress and start the planning as soon as you can. Enjoy every minute of the process as it goes so fast. On the wedding day, don’t let the small details bother you! -Mai, the Bride
