Today is the one year anniversary of Haru and Mingyi! When I met Haru at a local coffee shop to discuss her future wedding, I was uber pregnant, y'all. Here is how it went - I met Haru, was hired, and gave birth pretty much the next day.
Let me tell you why this wedding is so special to me. This was the first wedding I booked while pregnant, and it speaks volumes to the faith that Haru and Mingyi had in me knowing that I was going to go through a life change during their engagement. The fact that they trusted me is something that I will be eternally grateful for. It was through their planning that I was able to have confidence that yeah, I'd still be able to continue through building my small business, while entering this thing called motherhood. So you KNOW that I needed this wedding to be perfect.
One of the most unique things about their wedding was that they wanted to do a mini tea ceremony within their actual ceremony to pay homage to both their Taiwanese and Japanese cultures. It was so beautifully done, and the officiant actually pulled me aside afterwards and told me it was one of the most touching things he had witnessed in all his years doing weddings.
The other most amazing and personal detail was that both Haru's mother and brother performed her ceremony music WITHOUT a rehearsal, y'all. True professionals and such a talented family.
Also, I can't go without mentioning how freaking beautiful the design of their entire wedding was down to the florals (thanks, Lizzie Bee's!) and color scheme of the BHLDN bridesmaid dresses.
Not only did they have a memorable ceremony, but they topped the reception off with equally amazing details. They had special performances from dear friends, along with a surprise choreographed group dance that included the bride and groom in front of their many accomplished guests (85% of the guest list were doctors, y'all).
To cap off the most amazing night - their sendoff consisted of helium balloons filled with LED lights. They literally lit up the sky.
