jen + vu

I can't begin to tell you how much I love weddings. People thought I was losing my mind when I told them I enjoyed every aspect of planning my wedding, even more so, that I love being involved in planning other people's weddings. I feel lucky to be a part of creating a beautiful day for a couple who has nothing but pure love for each other. I have worked with Jen since the planning phase of their wedding and it's so amazing to see everything come together. I love how she was so involved in every intrinsic detail and she had great ideas of how she wanted her wedding to turn out. In the end, Jen and Vu's wedding was a blast! Here are some pictures from the couple's Cinderella themed enchanted wedding.
I just had to post the dessert first. Apple flavoured sorbet. Yum!
Their wedding was a fusion of Filipino and Chinese Culture. I didn't get the name of this popular dance troupe but they did an excellent job entertaining the guests with this rendition of "Singkil"
A Chinese dance group with well wishes for the bride and groom. A was so excited he got to use his light tricks with these shots. The costumes were so colourful, it was fun trying to play with this picture.
This is the same place where we had our wedding a year ago except it's a different part of its castle-like exterior. I'm still so amazed by how beautiful it looks inside. I love the chandeliers, the Chiavarri chairs and of course, Jen's towering centerpieces added much flair.
We did all the stationery pieces for Jen's wedding including this menu card.
Fog machines do create such dreamy effects. Jen looks beautiful in this shot.

This is my favourite of the detail shots! I think this is when I realized I'm in love with a Canon lens.
Customized lighting do pay off. I love the reflections it created with the crystal chandeliers.
The pink and brown theme was well reflected in all aspects of the wedding including the chocolate satin table covers and pink napkins.
Look! Our engagement pictures doubling as table numbers!
Jen's bouquet and pillow cake to match her Cinderella theme.

Jen's wedding was a blast from the past, seeing familiar people from highschool which felt like a million years ago now.
