East Meets West: The wedding of Corrine and Charles

Corinne & Charles wanted an East meets West inspired wedding with the brides favorite color of rich reds. Corinne being Irish and Charles being Asian posed a bit of a challenge as to how to mix the two cultures together. We also had to pay respects to the couples late grandmothers whom meant a lot to them. I really wanted to incorporate all of these things while keeping the mood light yet formal. The elephant with the trunk up is a totem of good luck for Corinne’s family passed down from her grandmother and the tortoise holds a similar meaning for Charles’s grandmother which is why you will see them used throughout the design. The cake stencil was custom made and hand painted with 24karat gold by Kakes by Karen. The couple had irish dancers to bring in the Irish culture. Place cards and all stationary was designed by Debra and I from DM Paper Designs and created and printed by Debra herself. Photos courtesy of New Ground Photography.
