From Jean of Extra Petite
… Hi beautiful brides ~ I’m wrapping up my Blogger Brides series with this footage from our special day, as well as a super easy DIY tutorial for two of my bridal accessories! Our wedding had a lot of vintage inspirations mixed with modern touches, as well as influence from our east-meets-west heritage. There were many personalized touches like my tea ceremony wedding dress handmade by one of my best friends, and the small accessories made by myself as finishing touches.

From the Bride-to-be… Every girl has dreamed about the day of her proposal, I am sure. As we get older, we see our friends get engaged, strangers on the street get engaged, and we have dreamed about that day even more. I am a very romantic partner, I like surprising him with sweet and lovely things, and it is hard to surprise me; however he gets me every time. Since very early in our relationship, we both had the feeling that each of us might be the one. We started to talk about spending the rest of our lives together, talking about having a small wedding in Beijing, and everything started to accelerate since then. We both knew that he was going to propose someday, but it was a matter of when and how. Then he made me a ring. The ring is so special not only because he made it out of paper, but also because of all the nights he spent at a desk after I was asleep to work on it. I love it more than any diamond ring. On the day he proposed, I thought we were just celebrating the anniversary of our relationship. When I saw all the flowers on the ground, when I was watching the video he made, I still had no idea where this was going to end, until the moment he kneeled down. It was then that I realized, this is the moment I have been waiting for since I was a little girl.
