Christina and James’ Exquisite Hotel Macdonald Wedding

On November 16, 2016

 

album352of369I am so excited to share this wedding with you! Christina and James were so awesome to work with, and their day was beyond beautiful.

When I first met them, I was eager for their wedding because they were such a wonderful couple. I could feel the love between the two of them; which for me is what makes a gorgeous wedding. It’s not about the “stuff” a wedding has, it’s about love and the couple celebrating the fact that they found each other.

The traditional tea ceremony started at 8:40am. Only close friends and family joined Christina and James for this portion of the wedding day. The speeches made by the families were in Vietnamese.

The beautiful decorations and church interior were just perfect for this wedding. The florals were simple but splendid.

The wedding cake

 

When we were setting this cake up, people from all over the hotel came to check it out. It was truly spectacular. I loved it because the bride and groom made it together!

The impressive guests’ tables

The bride is a cardiologist and the groom is a dentist, so the hotel made this for them.

 

Actually their guest book was a picture frame with a picture of a tree and two blue love birds. The leaves on the tree (which the guests signed) were green teeth and hearts. It was the little things like this that made the wedding that much more special.

One of my favorite parts is the first dance. This couples first dance did not disappoint. Even though this is just a photo, you can still feel their love.

After the dinner, Christina changed into this dazzling red dress. I love this photo too because you can really feel the love in it. It feels like we’re able to steal a peek of a special moment.
