Prague holds a special place in my heart having studied there in college, so it was a real treat getting to stroll down the magical streets of this great city through the lens of Claire Morgan Photography. The bride and groom, a Canadian couple of Chinese descent, started with a traditional Chinese tea ceremony and continued the celebration with a church wedding (and a Vera Wang dress change!) at the spectacular Basilica of St. Peter and St. Paul. Intimate, cultural and classically beautiful, this one will keep you swooning in the full gallery!

From Claire Morgan Photography... Vicky and Kevin are a Canadian couple of Chinese descent who recently got married in the beautiful city of Prague, Czech Republic. Vicky styled herself and the wedding fabulously. She chose the Pantone color "Mimosa" as her accent colour, and the style and inspiration for the day was "Modern Bohemian with Colonial Hong Kong" traditions. She also had two different gowns: a gray, Chinese Qipao dress for the Chinese Tea ceremony in the morning, as well as a Vera Wang number for the church ceremony and reception. I was also very touched to hear that the yellow ranunculas flowers included in her bouquet were a symbolic gesture, representing her father walking with her down the aisle as she carried the bouquet in her hand, with her mom's arm in the other. Her favorite memory of the day was the "Balloons of Blessings" in the air, resembling the lyrics of "Anchor" by Mindy Gledhill. Originally they only had music in English and Chinese, which reflected their origins, but their organist surprised them with worship music in Czech between the church readings. Vicky's advice for brides planning now is to look beyond the wedding day and plan for the beautiful journey of marriage ahead.
