I was really looking forward to attending Vicente and Maddie’s wedding. Aside from being able to share Maddie and Vicente’s special day, I was pretty excited to dress up since their wedding had an Asian Medieval theme!
And I so love themed weddings!
As a former bride who planned her own wedding (with the help of the hubby, family, friends and my coordinator, of course), I can empathize with the excitement, apprehension, pride and happiness the couple felt yesterday on their wedding. And I have to say, their wedding was amazing :)
We weren’t able to attend the church ceremony, sadly, so I wasn’t able to get a photo of the entourage and Maddie in her gorgeous bridal gown. (And I forgot my LX3 so I only had my iPod Touch for taking photos. Sorry for the sucky photos in advance, haha). Maddie, I can’t wait for your photos! :) Hope you can share them with me.
So straight to Blue Leaf Pavilion we went for the reception.
Pagoda-like lanterns greeted us as we walked up to Blue Leaf Pavilion. You can immediately feel the Asian Medieval theme :)
Since we were early for the reception, we were ushered to the cocktail area.
Aside from drinks and yummy food like shawarma and fried dumplings, there was a Tarot reader and a Palm reader to keep the guests entertained while waiting. There was also a Chinese dragon dance performance!
And a photobooth with an Asian background!
By 6PM people were being ushered to go to the main pavilion. We were greeted by a long buffet of food! A variety of Asian dishes from Chinese (Peking duck!), Japanese, Filipino and Mongolian made my hubby’s mouth water.
The main pavilion was beautifully set up and each table had a gorgeous Asian table setting of fans and plants. I tried to take a photo with my iPod Touch but since it was dark, the photos came out really poorly.
Playing with Hipstamatic :)
The couple made a really cute entrance with the bride leading a Chinese dragon :)
And while we were having dinner, aside from the usual videos and speeches from family and friends, we were entertained by several performances by belly dancers, Tai Chi/sword people, and those people who hang on a cloth and do acrobatics (sorry, don’t know what they’re called, haha).
It was really a fun wedding! Even the flower girls had a blast by the time the after party was into full gear!
And to end this post, of course, I have to share what I wore, haha!
Again, congratulations and best wishes Vicente and Maddie! :)
