Real Wedding: Karen & David Part 2

12 05 2008

I though Karen did a great job personalizing her wedding. She did it in such a way that wasn’t about throwing a bunch of knickknacks together from bridal magazine. What she did took some introspection.

The more obvious, physical items reflected Karen’s Chinese heritage. The double happiness symbol was found on the invitations, ceremony programs and menus. Karen wore 3 different dresses (a white wedding gown, a Chinese qi pao, and a fuschia evening gown). Finally, the favors of chocolate covered fortune cookies were inside a mini bamboo steamers.

I thought the more thoughtful and more subtle touches reflected David’s German heritage. The ceremony music were all by German composers: Johann Pachebel’s Canon, Bridal Chorus by Wagner and Ode to Joy by Beethoven. Their first dance was a waltz. Finally, several dishes had German influences: potato pancakes with apple and braised red cabbage and the red beet salad.mini bamboo steamers with chocolate covered fortune cookie; pink cherry blossom and double happiness on menu cards, ceremony programs, disposable camera, table marker
