A Day of Traditions

Another amazing Events by Design couple…

Su and Homan were not only an incredible couple (the kind of couple that make a wedding planner love their job) but they planned a day rich in family and tradition. Su, who is of Korean decent, and Homan, who is Chinese, knew they wanted to incorporate both Korean and Chinese traditions into their Americanized wedding.

The day began in the morning with an American Wedding Ceremony. As the mothers helped Su into her gown, they were dressed in GORGEOUS traditional Korean dresses.

BrideSu decided she wanted a “Mary Antoinette” inspired design at the Rancho Bernardo Inn for her American Ceremony and Lunch Reception.

The pop of the pink blooms against the turquoise gown is simply delicious!

What was next? Another wardrobe change! A wedding planners guilty pleasure…gowns, gowns and more gowns! Su and Homan both changed into traditional Chinese clothing for their traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony.
