I’m still a bit in awe that my first year of marriage has flown by so quickly. Sometimes I still feel as if my wedding was just last week. It was such a fabulous day – we celebrated with all of our families and closest friends. I thought I’d share some of my favorite images with you, our Coquettish fans.

The day started out with a traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony in which we poured tea to our elders. I had a custom Cheongsam made in Shanghai.
One of my favorite aspects of the wedding was our color scheme – yellow and grey. I thought it was so unique and it perfectly complimented the decor at The Stanford Court. My bridesmaids wore different dresses in various shades of grey and my Maid of Honor donned a printed frock from JCrew. The girls each also carried a bouquet of a single bloom and my bouquet combined all 4 of their flowers. To bring in the yellow, the girls each had silk rosette’s in their hair and their bouquets were tied with raw silk marigold ribbon.
We loved the Tiffany dome inside the hotel (an original from when the building was first built) and we incorporated it into all of our paper products, which were designed by Greg. We’re both SF natives, so we named the tables after some of our favorite neighborhoods.
Instead of doing pre-packaged favors, we opted for a candy buffet. Of course, it had to be coordinated with the wedding colors. (A quick side story: I only wanted the clear, yellow and orange gummi bears so with the help of my sisters, we extracted all of the red and green gummi bears from 40 lbs of Haribo’s! Yes, I’m crazy, but it was worth it!) All the candy was either yellow or white. We made signs and decorated the jars with grey ribbon.
