Caroline and Sanket were married at Congress Park in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. followed by a reception at Canfield Casino on June 29. The couple had two ceremonies at the park, the first one being a traditional Indian ceremony. The bride looked radiant in a mint, pink, and gold lehenga and donned classic curls for the affair. The groom looked dapper in a white sherwani featuring red, gold, and mint embroidery. The groom and his family danced underneath a red umbrella as part of his entrance to the ceremony. They were married under a big structure featuring mint and hot pink draping and stunning floral arrangements. The bride and groom sat in red velvet chairs surrounded by their family in gold chiavari chairs. “Despite the heat, I really enjoyed the Indian ceremony,” Caroline said. “It is hard to appreciate all the details of the ceremony — the colors, smells, sounds– unless you’re right there in it.” A traditional American ceremony followed, and the bride changed into an A-line gown featuring a beaded sweetheart bodice and a tulle skirt. She wore her hair in a delicate updo and carried pink peonies, garden roses, and succulents. Her ‘maids rocked long pink chiffon gowns with various necklines. After the second ceremony concluded, everyone moved to the Canfield Casino for the reception. The venue featured high ceilings and stained glass windows. The tables were decorated with bejeweled votive candles, mint and gold table numbers, and light pink compote vases filled with roses, peonies, and hydrangeas. The escort cards had a pink, blue, and gold pattern on them that was reminiscent of their invitation style. Guests ate and danced the night away, and indulged in a one-tier buttercream cake with a gold lasercut topper and adorned with flower petals. “Be unique and personalize your event to you and your partner– don’t compare your wedding to friends’ weddings or Pinterest,” Caroline said.

Yvonne and Kevin were married at Airship 37 in Toronto, Canada on August 16. The bride looked radiant in her strapless lace gown with a scalloped neckline and off-white sash. She donned her hair in a messy chic updo and carried a bouquet of roses, freesia, seeded eucalyptus, mums, and hypericum berries. For the Chinese tea ceremony, the bride opted for a traditional red silk dress with gold embroidery. The groom looked handsome in a dark blue vested suit with a light purple button down shirt and striped neck tie. For the tea ceremony he donned silk attire with red designs on it. The day began with a traditional Chinese tea ceremony as a nod to the bride’s heritage. A ceremony followed in an industrial loft with purple uplighting. The 130 family members and friends sat in silver chiavari chairs which were uniquely arranged in a spiral. Pink circle garlands hung from the ceiling, which her friends tirelessly worked on making. Photos of the couple throughout their relationship hung from the wall by clothespins and bright flowers were arranged in white painted bottles throughout the space, as well as bamboo, which is significant in both the bride and groom’s culture. After vows were exchanged, a reception followed at the same location. “We wanted to create a really fun day that reflected our personalities and interests. We both love playing word games, so we incorporated various scrabble elements,” Yvonne said of the decor. In lieu of a traditional guestbook guests signed quilt squares. Family and friends sat at tables with white linens and Scrabble-inspired table numbers and colorful flowers in clear vases. “We set up dominoes and mah-jong tables for our guests to play after dinner,” Yvonne said of the guest entertainment. Both Yvonne and Kevin’s heritages were represented in the guest’s favors, which consisted of Jamaican rum cake and tea in a Chinese take-out box. Guests also got to indulge in a four-tier butter cream frosting cake adorned with colorful flowers. Yvonne’s wedding advice is plain and simple, “Don’t do anything you don’t want to do.” See the full board here.

Diana + Junior: A Berry Beautiful Multicultural Summer California Garden Wedding By Dear Darling Photography
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Photos: Dear Darling PhotographyVenue: Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic GardenEvent Planners: Catherine Cindy Leo, Liz Yoon, and Maggie Hui; Dress Designer: St. PatrickGroom’s Attire: John VarvatosHair Stylist: Theresa HuangMakeup Artist: Renee Lee; Floral Designer: Flowers by DanaOfficiant: Will Kwon; Rentals: Dolphin Party RentalsCaterer: Tender GreensCake: Porto’s BakeryDJ: DJ Matthew Rubino

Diana and Junior were married at Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden in Arcadia, Calif. on July 6. They first met at work. “When Junior walked into our office for his first day, it was crust-at-first-sight,” Diana said. “The following day, a group of co-workers and I went to dinner and someone invited him along unbeknowst to me. I had made a pact with a co-worker earlier in the year to NEVER date anyone at work. But when Junior walked into the restaurant, I leaned over and whispered, ‘I’m breaking the pact.'” The bride wore a lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown with a Queen Anne neckline, accessorized with a fingertip-length veil, while the groom wore a black suit, accessorized with a solid tie and pocket square. “Our goal was to keep the entire process as predictable and simple as possible,” she said. “Everyone we talked to cared about three things: food, booze, and cake. So, we kept the ceremony under 15 minutes, which doesn’t mean the vows were cut off.” In addition, there was also a traditional Korean ceremony too.”Personally, this was my favorite part,” Diana said. “It was the perfect way to cut up cocktail hour and a fun way to pay homage to our culture. Catching the dates and chestnuts [in the apron] indicate how many girls or boys you will have. Apparently, we will be having 12 sons and 5 daughters.” Sticking with an English garden theme, reception tables were in an U-shape formation, decorated with overflowing compote centerpieces and vintage vases and vessels. Fun fun: the olive branches at each place setting symbolized peace. “The berry table cards were such a refreshing treat, and the dessert table was the prettiest part of the entire wedding!” she said. The newlyweds’ performed their first dance to “I Found You” by Alabama Shades. “The day was warm, but once the sun set, it was perfect for dancing,” Diana said.

Portia and Desmond were married at Valley Green Inn in Philadelphia, Penn. on April 13. They first met while attending Loyola University in New Orleans. “After a couple of years of dating and too many years of distance, we moved in together in Philadelphia where Des was in medical school,” Portia said. “We decided to get married in the City of Love because it is were we got engaged,” she said. “By our favorite mural . . . that reads, ‘If you were here, I’d be home now.'” The bride wore an antique-colored lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with a sideswept loose curls updo and birdcage veil, while Desmond wore a navy blue suit, brown bow tie, and his glasses. Plus, a traditional Hawaiian lei around his collar! Following the outdoor nuptials, guests were asked to type out their well wishes and advice. The tech-savvy tips: “Don’t be shy! You have to punch the letters with some force. (Not an Iphone.)” The reception tables were decorated with mercury glass vases, which were collected over a year before the wedding, and “gorgeous flowers and family pictures and old family relics (like maps and paitnings) completed our country chic-inspired look,” she said. Their first dance song? “We both have a mutual love for Michael Jackson music,” Portia said. “And he put ‘Lady in my Life’ on his first mixtape he made for me during our courtship, so it was a no brainer.” See the full board here.
