CLAIRE ZHANG & AN­DREW THOMP­SON

Wedding Bells (West) - - Western - MARCH 31, 2018

FROM CLAIRE: We chose a red-and­white colour scheme to sym­bol­ize our mul­ti­cul­tural wed­ding. Red is the tra­di­tional colour of Chi­nese wed­dings, whereas white is nor­mally used in West­ern cul­ture, so we wanted to com­bine both. Our wed­ding plan­ner, Sa­har of Mod­ern Mint Event Co­or­di­na­tors, helped our day go smoothly. We loved the in­cred­i­ble red flow­ers by Dushan Flow­ers, in­clud­ing the cen­ter­pieces, the brides­maid bou­quets and my own bou­quet. They were breath­tak­ing and con­trasted beau­ti­fully against the white chairs and linens. Walk­ing into the re­cep­tion hall as hus­band and wife was a beau­ti­ful mo­ment. Not only did we love see­ing all our fam­ily and friends gath­ered in one room, but to have them cheer and con­grat­u­late us was the best feel­ing. I changed into two more out­fits that day. At the re­cep­tion I wore a v-neck gown, as well as a red qi pao dress that matched our daugh­ter’s. I’ll never for­get see­ing our daugh­ter run onto the dance floor in her adorable out­fit!
