They say opposites attract. Take this bride for example – her style is all about modern simplicity. A subtle but gorgeous palette, a quiet nod to tradition and a sense of chic built into every detail. But then if you look closely – with photographs by Christine Choi – you see moments of pure whimsy that made the wedding entirely personal, entirely “them.” Click here for more.


From the Bride…Our wedding theme is “modern romance” which is so me. I wanted my wedding to match with our personality, modern, simple, intimate, elegant, and romantic. We did not have much color in our wedding – only ivory, grey and a pop of yellow to create a modern look. From the invitations, the programs, the flowers, table numbers, and decoration we kept the palette consistent.

The wedding planning process was actually really fun for me. I DIY-ed most of the items, most of the decor, name cards, table numbers, and Mr. and Mrs Sign. Our wedding turned out fabulous, from our tradition Chinese tea ceremony, first look and wedding ceremony to our reception. It was not only a special day for us, it was one for all our friends and families.
