Featured in Occasions Magazine

About a year ago, I gathered a team together to bring my vision of an "East Meets West" styled photo shoot to life. We had an amazing team! Our inspiration photo shoot was recently featured in Occasions Magazine and I am so excited to finally share these photos with everyone! The concept for this shoot was to merge the Chinese culture with a more western and modern feel. I knew that Chelsea Nicole would be perfect for this shoot and I was thrilled that she was interested in collaborating with me!  And if the model looks like me, it's because I asked my twin sister Jennifer to spend the day with us in the cold so that we can get these great photos!

Here are a few other photos but check out the feature in Occasions Magazine for the full photo gallery.

Existing lounge furniture was used in place of traditional chairs for guest seating. The altar was created with red Chinese parasols, red fabric, red crystals and fresh flowers.

In the Chinese culture, instead of a wedding "reception", a Chinese "banquet" with many many courses is the norm. I had Chinese owned stationery company Pink Orchid Designs from Boston create a printed banquet menu and add in very traditional Chinese courses. The chargers were from LTevention.

I love unique wraps for bridal bouquets and this idea for the frog button was an idea that just popped into my head one night. I love the way Enchanted Florist took my idea and created this gorgeous bouquet.
