I never met Anna & Richard. They met with Linnae & I was not at their wedding. I only had the opportunity, like many of the readers of this blog, to see the pictures of their wedding without actually being there…and I was blown away.
Seeing the pictures for the first time I was struck by how different the Asian pre-ceremony felt from the traditional American wedding that I see so often. I was immediately drawn to the vibrant red colors of the pre-ceremony and the intricacy of Anna’s headpiece. I love the bold red and gold colors that were intertwined in her jewelry and clothing. I loved the culture and the depth that this ceremony seemed to have.
I also think that the photographer, Matthias, did a fabulous job of capturing the style and personality of both events. I have never worked with Matthias but I was really impressed with his work. It was definitely one of the strongest shot weddings I’ve seen all year.
Also, I rolled into the images of Anna & Richard’s American ceremony. I had to do a double take and ask myself “Is this the same girl?” Still as cute as could be but with a whole new look. White, crisp, and clean design elements decorated this ceremony. We were called up to decorate their beach wedding using tones of green and white and slight rustic accents using wicker and our curly willow structure.
Their reception was clean and modern as well. All in all it was a beautiful day. At least that’s what I can tell from the pictures. Congratulations to Anna & Richard and thank you for allowing us to be a part of your special day.
