I thought it might be fun to throw something different at you guys for today. This real Maryland wedding features BOLD colors (purple, pink, red, and gold) a blend of Asian cultures (Thai & Chinese) and the setting of an Arts Center! So many blended vibes and themes – I dig it! Annie & Kelvin mixed their traditions and also threw a rockin’ wedding reception at the end. There’s a lot of different and interesting shots from their ceremony – I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did!
From the couple:
We had a blend of Asian cultures of Thai and Chinese, the colors were Purple, Pink, Red and Gold. The purple and pink represented orchid colors, used in various thai ceremonies and the red and gold are common colors representing the Chinese, where red symbolizes good fortune and joy, and yellow symbolizes neutrality and good luck. The venue was the perfect setting for us to showcase our wedding on stage and to honor the thai water ceremony, Chinese tea ceremony and western ceremony in a theatrical setting.
My bridesmaids were involved in the floral arrangements, bouquets and boutineers all diy. All family and friends helped with the set up of the centerpieces, stage and coordination. I had my bridesmaid give an introduction for each ceremony as well.

For the thai ceremony, we brought all of the pieces from the temple for the setup of the water ceremony. For the Chinese ceremony, we had out own tea cups and Chinese diy money box.
I created my own wishing tree, card box, monogram for the backdrop of our stage, dance floor gobo, seating chart, ceremony cards, invitations, thank you cards, flowers, centerpieces, bridesmaids gifts, almost everything. Our website annieandkelvin.wordpress.com has all of the details on some of the DIYs.
