Ethereal and Elegant

Ok, this post is a little extra-special for me because it’s actually my younger brother’s wedding. You’d maybe think that having a sister as a wedding blogger would mean full-time-hovering-over wedding planning and the like. Fortunately, I can proudly say I was not a sister-zilla to little bro Martin and my now sister-in-law, Anna. In fact, they would just come to me occasionally for things that they needed tips on. I would always say, “It’s your wedding, make sure you do what is nice for you!” Thankfully, these two apples do not fall far from the sister tree! They went for a classic luxe romantic theme, which is always a yes for me. And of course they made sure they worked with suppliers that jived with their vision.

Jo Claravall was a pure styling genius, executing a tasteful white reception filled with orchids, tulips, and other exquisite florals. Tall candelabras made everything look so sophisticated and elegant. Another favorite of mine was the garden ceremony set up–it felt like a scene from Meet Joe Black! (Confession, those lanterns almost got stolen by me!) It was minimalist, yet the florals felt lush. I actually adored the black elements which is not something I usually like.

Myio Okamoto will simply stun you with the most amazing snaps for that day (scroll down and see for yourself)! Ian Celis Productions also made sure that the video was equally riveting–and yes, I was almost in tears with disbelief that Martin was actually married already. From the Pronovias gown that Anna wore, to the Hannah Kong bridesmaid and secondary sponsor dresses that I too got to dress up in, everything was just pure prettiness.

I could go on and on and on and on about how much I loved their wedding, and maybe it’s the big sister in me that makes me do so. I really hope you like this fête as much as I did! Go ahead and be inspired.
