KCCC Family/Supporter's Banquet

As some of you know, I've was on staff with KCCC (Korea Campus Crusade for Christ), a non profit missions organization for over 6 years. Although my husband and I resigned this summer to pursue our careers, we still love the KCCC ministry's vision & goal and we absolutely cherish the much prayer and support we have received from our fellow staff & directors. Being involved with this organization since freshman year in college has made a huge impact in my life. Throughout the years of discipleship, I learned what it means to live out a life of faith & the joy of sharing the gospel, realizing how much of a great sinner I am before the Lord, yet how thankful I am for His grace.

This Sunday was their family/supporter's banquet where they gathered staff's family and supporters to once again share their vision and let them know how each staff is living the life of grace. They asked me to coordinate this event, because they have anonther major annual Christmas conference called Vision Conference where they gather over 1000 students from all over California. I instantly knew that they needed some major transformations and what's a better way to transform a room than renting linens and lighting! I had Luna Party Rentals donate some of their items such as round tables, chiavari chairs, linens and napkins, chargers, and some amber up lights. Huge thanks to Luis who gladly donated his rentals! And Fiore Flower for also donating seven beautiful arrangements! Without them, the magic would not have happened!

Small pears that were placed on each napkin along with a welcome greeting were also from Target. They were $5.99 for a dozen!

Small centerpieces were purchased from Michael's for $8 dollars! They're having over 50% off sale on all Christmas items!! I also had some extra votive candles left from a previous wedding.

I also arranged Onami Catering to provide us with the food and I'm seriously recommending this catering for future weddings! We only had a certain budget to work with and they outdid themselves with so much food & each dish was so delicious!
These pictures were all taken from my camera so they didn't come out as good as it should have been.
I still have two wedding posts back in November, Asian Bridal Show photos, and one more December wedding I am currently working on. These images will be absolutely fabulous!!
Just a quick reminder, I am currently at 30 weeks of pregnancy!! I still have two months (give or take) before I give birth. So after my December wedding, I will be taking a maternity break. I'm quickly getting booked for 2009 weddings so shoot me an email to receive a 2008 rate.
