Jenny and her Scarlet Petal team did an amazing job with the blue and purple color schemed florals! Everything was low, lush, and glowed in the candle light!

I wish we had a picture of the full escort card display before all the guests got to it! We had a beautiful Asian-style folding screen from which I hung ribbons and used mini clothes pins to attach the cards. It was stunning!

We created a lush tablescape using the leftover hydrangea bunches from the ceremony, the bouquets and floating candles.

I love moments like this caught on camera, with the happy couple kissing and their two mothers toasting their glasses!

The meal was the best example of how they incorporated their two cultures. There was a Haitian Jerk Chicken over red beans and rice to represent Stephen’s background… and a Soy and Brown Sugar Salmon with black lotus rice and baby bok choy to reflect Chin’s Chinese roots. Something for everyone! Blue Plate Catering did a fantastic job (I got to enjoy the salmon, thanks Ken! :))

One of the best toasts was by Chin’s family, where they had the whole crowd on their feet and cheering!

I think it’s so meaningful (and polite!) when the Bride and Groom say a few words of thanks to their families and friends!

I believe they surprised everyone with a tango… (in that amazing Provonias dress!)
