And the story or concept:We really want to emphasize how emerald green can be elegant and still be easy to incorporate into a wedding day color scheme, so we picked it as our main color and added other accent colors to go along with the design. The styled shoot colors are emerald green and gold, we threw in white as the third color to balance out both the main and accent colors. 

We chose 2 gowns to incorporate the beauty of the two worlds: the West and the East. For the ceremony gown, we have this big a-line with flowy fabric to have a grand entrance for the bride. When the wind blows, her gown will fly in mid-air to create that dramatic look. As for the 2nd gown, it is actually a modernized qipao in white with emerald green buttons. We want to circle back to that emerald green with a design purpose while celebrating the Mandarin culture from the bride’s side.

For the floral design, we wanted to showcase the summer vibe, so we focused on creating an abundance of table centerpieces for the long dining table, adding peach candles to showcase the gold colors in between the plates and wine cups. We are very proud of using lots of greens for the overall look of this styled shoot since we’ve seen a lot of green vs. white in real weddings and styled shoots, but not enough brave souls willing to challenge and take the creativity to the next level.
As far as the wardrobe, we always want to look at the venue or environment first, then decide what wedding attire is best. For example, you won’t see someone wearing a ballroom gown at a beach wedding. That is completely out of place. For a chateau wedding, some chateaux are more for hunting, and some are more for luxury get-away locations, so your wardrobe choice does vary based on the environment you’re going to be in.
