Today we are headed to Maryland for Carolyn and Alex’s delightful wedding day. Their multicultural wedding was just something else, complete with a first look, outdoor nuptials and a Chinese Tea ceremony.
I love the quirky feel to this wedding, which was full of fun pops of red and DIY touches. So much happiness.
Many thanks to BG Productions Photography and Videography for sharing these lovely images.
From the Bride | We wanted a romantic outdoor wedding that was fun and reflected our personalities. Since both of our families are Chinese, it was important for us to incorporate traditional elements like the colour red, double happiness characters and delicious Chinese food. In order to save money, we took on a couple DIY projects – Alex made the giant jenga and I made all the paper goods (except the save-the-date). I also bought most of the decorative elements from thrift stores. The chopstick favours are from a trip to China and were extremely popular with our guests. We loved all our vendors, especially our photographers and caterer. Our caterer was a friend who had just started his business last year and was excited to cater one of his first weddings. He did an excellent job. We had a lot of help from our friends in preparing for the wedding such as designing our save-the-date and the day of our wedding such as setting up the photo booth. None of this would have been possible without the support of our loved ones.Best parts of our wedding day: Carolyn’s dad’s toast, our vows to each other, beautiful weather for our outdoor activities and seeing all our friends & family who travelled all this way.
