Ro­mance was quick to blos­som for Arthur Tang and Fiona Li when they met in the Pa­cific North­west of the US. Af­ter four years of study and courtship at Seat­tle Univer­sity, they con­tin­ued their re­la­tion­ship long dis­tance on re­turn­ing home—he to join the fam­ily busi­ness, Prince Jew­ellery & Watch, in Hong Kong, and she to Chang­sha in Hu­nan Prov­ince. Af­ter en­dur­ing a year apart, Arthur knew Fiona was the one. He lured her to Hong Kong, where he sur­prised her with his pro­posal and a bou­quet of 100 roses in the in­ti­mate set­ting of the Tang fam­ily’s gar­den. Fiona re­mem­bers it as one of the most sub­lime days of her life, only topped by the wed­ding it­self, which took place a year later at the Ritz­carl­ton, Hong Kong.

Help­ing the new­ly­weds wel­come their guests at the De­cem­ber 16 re­cep­tion were the groom’s par­ents, Jimmy and Emily Tang, and the bride’s par­ents, Fahui and Zhang­ping Li. The flo­ral mo­tif of the in­vi­ta­tions and the re­cep­tion was a nod to the beau­ti­ful gar­den in which the cou­ple had be­come en­gaged. Fresh flow­ers adorned the walls from floor to ceil­ing and burst from gor­geous cen­tre­pieces. The bride looked stun­ning in a gown by Monique Lhuil­lier, the groom dap­per in Dolce & Gab­bana. Af­ter a heart-warm­ing speech by Jimmy, the 300 guests tucked into a sump­tu­ous eight-course meal. To top off a flaw­less even­ing, each guest re­ceived a beau­ti­ful crys­tal box de­signed es­pe­cially for the oc­ca­sion by Peo­nia Di­a­mond as a thank you from the new­ly­weds.
