Hang and Hao’s romantic wedding at Livermore, CA’s Murrieta’s Well has all of our favorite things: a colorful palette, personal touches, stunning fashion, and incredible images! Inspired by the vineyards surrounding the winery, the couple wanted an organic feel for their event, and Sachi from Delphinium Floral Design outdid herself creating lush arrangements of peonies, garden roses, and blushing bride protea. Crisp white calligraphy, hand-lettered by Hang, and vintage stamps dressed Minted agate invitations, and the adorable animal place card holders were spray-painted by the couple, adding a special charm to the table setting. Silk ties hand-dyed with organic elements such as tea and beet adorned the favors. We are completely spellbound by every image by Kate Anfinson!
From the bride:
We loved our music. Our string quartet were very professional and did just an amazing job. I walked down to instrumental strings of ‘A Thousand Years’ and our recessional was the theme song from ‘Games of Thrones’. It added a fun element and we were ecstatic at anyone who picked it up. The first dance is a favorite memory. Our wonderful band sang our first dance song which was ‘To Make You Feel My Love’ by Bob Dylan.
We both agreed that our favorite detail of the day was the ceremony. Our officiant, a close friend of my husband since childhood, presided our wedding day. Being both Buddhist, our original plan was to do a traditional temple ceremony but due to time restrictions we decided not to but it ended up being the best decision we both made. The ceremony was unique, clean, simple and personal. Our other favorite details of our day would be the table setting. It was just as we imagine and more. it was organic, elegant and classic.
