We absolutely love seeing our client’s wedding celebrations featured by wedding publications both online and in print. Your wedding day will be absolutely gorgeous. I want the world to see it!
Tell us about your ceremony and reception venue and what attracted you to it?
The ceremony and reception took place at the City Club Raleigh. The views from the ballroom windows were spectacular.
Let’s talk fashion. How did you choose your wedding day look? How did the groom? What was wedding shopping like for you?
My dress was vintage from 1976, first worn by my Aunt Carolyn who passed away at a young age. The dress fit perfectly with few alterations. I wore my grandmother’s pearl necklace. The groom’s tux was custom made in Korea and shipped across the world to make our day extra special.
Share with us how you two met:
We met at a CrossFit gym in Cheyenne, WY where we were stationed in 2015.
Tell us about your proposal:
Jon proposed under the cherry blossoms in Tokyo, Japan in late March 2017.
What’s your favorite image from your wedding day, and why:
My favorite image is our first kiss during the ceremony. Jon dipped me in front of all our friends and family, which was our first act of trust as a married couple. Of course, the guests loved the dramatic display of affection.
Tell us about your wedding planner:
My wedding planner was Henriette from Chic Decor Events. She managed every detail with ease. Additionally, she also served as our florist. I highly recommend her and her team.
What were some of your favorite parts of your wedding?
My favorite part of the wedding was a speech by my grandfather during the toasts. He let us in on his secrets to a successful marriage. Must have worked for him, since my grandparents have been married for over 60 years.
Tell us about your wedding photography:
Dajuan from In His Image Photography captured all the formal and candid moments from our wedding and reception. He easily connected with our guests and made everyone, especially myself, feel comfortable and relaxed. The photos are stunning and take us back to our wedding day any time we look at them.
