I am over the moon to see Bingqing and Han's intimate winter wedding at The Foundry in The Knot New York 2018 Fall/Winter issue! Most of our weddings are 100-300 guests, but sometimes we get to plan a small wedding for 48 and it feels extra special. Take a look at some of the thoughtful details below! You can read more about the wedding on this blog post too. Thank you to the The Knot for sharing our work!
Bingqing and Han were married in a snowy winter day in New York. We had really lucked out as there was a big snowstorm the day before. The day of the wedding, the skies were clear, but the ground was blanketed in a bright white layer of fresh snow.
The bride is an architect and she had designed their invitation suite with a detailed hand illustration of The Foundry. Prior to the guests arriving they had a Chinese tea ceremony with close family to pay respect to their elders and receive good wishes for their marriage. This was followed by an intimate wedding ceremony, officiated by a friend of the couple. We kept the palette clean with creamy whites and crisp greens. Going into dinner, Poppies and Posies added more colour with blush, dusty rose and pops of burgundy in the florals. The two long tables were scattered with a sea of elegant tapers in different aged brass candlesticks and crackled amber and pale grey votives.
Their elegant wedding cake from Nine Cakes had two different flavours. The bottom tier was lemon cake with layers of lime curd and orange zest cream cheese buttercream. The top tiers were rich chocolate cake layered with cloud like caramel buttercream, fleur de sel and roasted pecans.
Bingqing loves to sing and instead of doing the traditional mother son and father daughter dances, they decided to have both sets of parents dance with each other and Bingqing sang a beautiful Chinese song. It was such a sweet and intimate winter wedding and we were so happy to be part of it!

If you have never seen stop motion video, you have to watch this. One of the best I have seen by the incredibly talented Bayly & Moore. They came all the way over from New Zealand to shoot Cristina and Jason's wedding at The Foundry and we are so lucky they did. With luscious floral design by Poppies and Posies, it was such a delight working on this wedding! (Full screen is best for the video)
