This wedding makes me weak at the knees. It was such a perfect balance of classic elegance and modern elements that I just adore. With a Bride who is an architect and a Groom who works in publishing with a graphic design background, I knew their wedding would have incredible style. Jiwon wore Amsale's Clara gown made from luxurious structured silk mikado, with a lace bolero from IHeartBride. Later during the reception, she changed into a light and airy dress from Alice & Olivia. Thanks to Karen Hill Photography for sharing these images with us.
Jin designed the contemporary letterpress invitations and all the wedding day paperie. The clean lines and bold font complementing the industrial character of The Foundry perfectly.
The fact that The Foundry allows dogs onsite was a huge plus for Jiwon and Jin. They wanted Monkey to be part of their celebration, and looking at that face, you can definitely see why!
The flowers from Saipua were absolutely dreamy. As you will see, I had real trouble editing these photographs. Between Saipua's creations and Karen Hill's Photography, it was a really hard to choose my favourites from this wedding.

Monkey was part of the processional and the recessional, which everyone loved! His black bow tie was actually a human bow tie instead of a dog bow tie. The former was more affordable. Go figure.
Jiwon's twin brothers were some of the most helpful siblings I have ever met at a wedding. They helped me track down missing family members for portraits, were perfect ushers, and gave a hilarious speech during dinner. Thanks guys!
Saipua used a soft summer palette of whites, ivories and greens, with full and round flowers for a romantic feel. The different containers they used along the tables made it so interesting, with each guest getting a different experience. The tables were covered with mercury glass taper candle sticks and pillar candles. The brick ledges were covered with a deluge of glass votives. It took a while to stuff all those candle sticks, but the warmth and romance they created made it all worth it!
For their wedding favours, we had little glass jars of tasty Papabubble candy, with personalized labels.
Nine Cakes created a dessert table of five white cakes with different buttercream textures, macarons, tartlets and truffles. Such a pretty display and everything was delicious!
Congratulations to Jiwon and Jin. Thank you for letting me be part of your special day!
