Emily and Ray had every intention of saying their “I do’s” outside on Prospect Park’s dock, but due to weather complications, the ceremony was moved inside the boathouse. The intimate, candlelit space next to the French doors was filled with mercury glass vases, frosted goblets, and glass tumblers spilling over with red and pink peonies and garden roses. The couple even incorporated their Chinese and Korean traditions into the ceremony to honor their parents. Emily wore an Enzoani lace mermaid wedding gown, Ray wore a classic, black-bow tie Hugo Boss tuxedo, and bridesmaids wore Aidan Mattox gold-sequinned dresses. During their first dance, “[we] danced with our parents to Laura Fygi’s ‘Love You For Sentimental Reasons,'” Emily said. “It was the first time either of us had been in such proximity to our usually reserved Asian parents for any lengthy amounts of time. . .it is perhaps my fondest memory of then night.” And a way for their parents to honor their wishes of incorporating Western traditions into the wedding. Guests enjoyed not one, not two, but THREE wedding cakes — “chocolate cake with layers of chocolate ganache and fresh strawberries and pistachio cake with layers of rosewater buttercream frosting and fresh raspberries.” Yum!
