A wedding under a willow tree with leis and dance performances

Janey and Lee found a pretty magical place to get married in the summer — under a huge willow tree. They met dancing professionally together and that influenced the wedding quite a bit. They asked a friend to perform a dance for them at the reception. Anna Wu, who photographed the event, told us that Lee proposed by writing a message in chocolate syrup on a dessert plate. Sweet! Plus, their dog was the ring bearer!

Teary first look! Also note the feathers woven into Janey's hair.

Janey and Lee's mothers poured intention-blessed water over their hands.

Janey's Hawaiian-Filipino roots influenced their decision to have a lei ceremony.

Epic watermelon bowl!
