JILLIAN GAO & IAN LEUNG
SEPTEMBER 2, 2017
FROM JILLIAN: Ian and I actually met while
speed dating. Who’d have thought it actually works? We sat across from each other and mulled over whether we should pick one another for a date. We were both in adventurous and forgiving moods that day, so we gave each other a shot. Our wedding
theme was modern ethereal. The whole atmosphere felt right for us. It was cool, smart and well curated yet romantic and emotional. We refined our colour scheme by using pastel blues and soft peach with gold accents. Coincidentally, the blue and gold tied in perfectly with the delicate embroidery on my dress. We both also liked the idea of using fruit as an accent, along with a minimal yet thoughtful selection of flowers. Sweet Woodruff designed a unique backdrop of asymmetrical blooms for the ceremony. Seeing what they created for us was a stunning surprise. We chose “Rosie” by John Mayer as our wedding
song. It had the perfect vibe for the first dance but the lyrics didn’t fit the occasion. Ian, being an amateur musician, secretly recorded his own version of the wedding song. He definitely earned enough brownie points to last him the rest of our lives.
