Nesting is like theraphy in every woman’s pregnancy life! I recently completed my baby girl’s nursery and glad I was able to make time for this before her arrival. I’ve been hearing all sorts of stories about my time shifting … Continue reading

MJ & Chris Wedding Highlight Video / Palm Event Center, Pleasanton CA

Some things are worth the wait… buying a house, getting that job, going on that memorable trip, but most of all, finding the love of your life and yes – marrying him! Our wedding highlight video not only takes me back to a very special day. It takes me back to the time when Chris Dacoron and I found each other and fell in-love.
Great things have happened and we’ve shared so much this year. Though this video is overdue, it’s 100% worth the wait and it has to be shared – we hope you enjoy it!! 😉
Thank you to our best friends and love ones who shared this day with us. Kudos to our photographer and videographer, especially the editor (see credits at end of video). Our wedding day will be forevermore remembered

[MJS Real Weddings] Maricar + Lucas Wedding, Extended Highlight Video

I had the honor of planning Maricar & Lucas’ wedding and I can’t believe it has been two years since they got married at the beautiful Winery SF in Treasure Island, CA.

It was a simple, yet sophisticated and classic, type of wedding. With white orchids and succulents as part of their design and decor. One of my favorite details, was Maricar’s wedding dress – it was elegant and delicate in it’s own way – just like the Bride was 🙂

Maricar & Lucas are one of the sweetest couples I know and their wedding party had an awesome energy – one of the best I’ve ever seen! Watch their highlight video to see what I mean!!!

Happy watching and as always, thanks for your support! ❤

MJ & Chris’ Extended Wedding Same-Day-Edit (SDE) Video + Highlight!!!

As a wedding planner/coordinator/consultant and also a former Bride, I highly recommend hiring a videographer and at the least, including a highlight video of your wedding day in your package. There are tons of options, like Same-Day-Edit (SDE), which is a video that is shown on the same day of your wedding. Every videographer/editor is different, but for the most part, SDE will capture the morning of until about the first dance during the reception. You will also have a video to share right after your wedding day, since full highlight videos can take a few months (sometimes almost a year) to be completed. I think SDE is a good ending to every Newlywed’s “best day ever” so if you can make it work with budget, two words… “DO IT!!!”

I’m excited to be sharing this again and will share it here so I don’t ever lose the link! =P

I hope you enjoy watching our SDE and please stay tuned for our full wedding highlight video – COMING SOON!!!

Wedding Anniversary Tradition

Getting married last year was definitely one of the best days of my life! For our first year anniversary, I wanted us to do something special – something we can do every year to remember our wedding day by. Taking photos at our wedding venue last week and recreating one of the wedding photos we took from the wedding meant so much. It brought back fun memories from our wedding day and special moments we shared with our family and friends. We look forward to taking this same photo next year! 


We can’t believe how fast time has gone by and now we are celebrating 365 days of our love/marriage. It feels great to have made it one year as husband and wife. We’re so humbled and honored that God made us for each other and with His help, we pray to be the best husband and wife to each other for all the days of our lives. Thank you to our dear God, to our family and friends. We’ve been blessed with so much, and this is only Year One. We cannot wait for the years ahead – to celebrate “forevermore” years of our love! 🙂
