A colorful & joyful art gallery wedding (with a caricature artist and groom-made bouquet!)

Our theme was creative cocktail — we wanted lots of people to wear prints and colours to match the ceremony and reception setting of art gallery. We had a hired cartoonist to do portraits and we invited ceremony-only attendees for a cocktail hour with grazing table. Scott actually made my bouquet on the day, something slightly stressful but with a beautiful end result: a king protea surrounded by gum blossom and sea-holly for texture. Oh, and I also wore a bright red dress to symbolise my Chinese heritage.


This art gala wedding created an exhibition of art by family & friends!

The overall theme was Unity Through Art. I am an artist, and both my husband and I come from a long line of professional artists and grew up immersed in fine art culture. So, we decided to celebrate our wedding in the form of an art exhibit.

We held an art gala wedding that showcased the collective artwork of our closest family and friends and celebrated our local neighborhood of Astoria.


Rock Band, drag kings, and burlesque: this rainbow wedding triumphs

Crystal and Kalem wanted the focus of their wedding to be on major FUN, so that called for Rock Band, board games, personalized crossword puzzles, Mad Libs, a rapper, drag kings, and burlesque. Add in a ring warming, a moment of silence/blessing during the ceremony, a handfasting, and an art gallery surprise from Kalem with loads of art, this rainbow wedding gave us reason to LIVE.

In lieu of a first dance, they had a first Rock Band song, and their six parental figures joined for a family performance.
