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.

Get romanced by this tropical elopement at a waterfall in Costa Rica

Terrence and I eloped alone at the base of a waterfall in Costa Rica on our ten-year anniversary. We spent two weeks traveling the coast and rain forest of Costa Rica and spent our wedding budget volunteering with animal rescues (sloths and monkeys galore! We love animals), riding horses, bikes, and ATVs, booze cruising, beaching, and hiking. We even made our own chocolate in the rain forest.

Get ready for this Gothic Midsummer Night's Dream wedding in a forest

If I had to put a label on it, I would call our wedding a "Gothic Midsummer Night's Dream." We made sure to include a ton of natural and rustic elements like crystals, logs, animal bones, and balanced those raw materials with dark elegant pieces to get that "we just magically threw together a fancy party in the woods" vibe. James and I are both artists, so it only made sense that almost all our decorations/accessories were made by us. Don't miss how we narrowed down our venue search!
