I first met Crystal and Justin in July 2016. During our initial meeting, Crystal showed me a lot of wedding photos that she likes so I can get a sense of her style. As a result, we visited only two venues and she picked the 2nd venue – the historic Georgian Terrace Hotel.
The wedding ceremony was held in Mitchell Ballroom for 90 guests while the wedding reception was in the Grand Ballroom. We used uplighting and color linens to transform the color of the ballroom for this Spring time affair.
To balance out the color in the room, the flowers used were a mix of pink and white hydrangeas, pink and white roses, white alstroemeria and lavender stock.
As a planner, I am deeply honor that the couple asked me to conduct the Chinese tea ceremony for them during the reception as this is a role generally reserved for the elderly ladies in the family. At Showcase Your Style Event Planning , we love weddings that feature cultural traditions of the couples and always try to incorporate them into the wedding when possible.
This wedding was also the first time that I tried my hand on providing the English subtitle for the Chinese vows and toasts in the highlight video. It was certainly a different experience and I think I would rather be a wedding planner than a translator!
