Bhutan, home to the majestic Himalayas and towering monastic forts — it is hard not to be humbled amongst such giants. But hand in hand, Ryan and Michelle meandered through this awe-inspiring landscape as Ben Yew captured their journey with much tenderness and respect.

Fashion Friday: Houghton Bride SS 2016

I’m so ecstatic to share with you today’s Fashion Friday post! Houghton Bride’s collection was most definitely my favorite show from the recent NY bridal fashion week. I just love how the designs challenge the mainstream idea of what wedding dresses should be like. If dresses could talk, I imagine these would have the most interesting stories of their travels and adventures from different time periods. So if you’re looking for something effortlessly cool and unique, or if you’re just a gypsy bride at heart, don’t look any further. Please, please get married in one of these dresses, and you’ll be my new best friend!

Met Gala 2015: Asian Beauties

The Met Gala (a.k.a. fashion’s Oscars night) just concluded, so we want to take a minute to acknowledge the Asian beauties that graced the red carpet. There’s so much style inspiration from this year’s Chinese-themed affair, but in my opinion, Fan Bing Bing stole the entire show. Check out the photos and see if you agree!

Seaside Enchantment

It’s not everyday you come across a wedding done outdoors in Hong Kong. Sailing has always been a big part of Mark and Elena’s life, so they went with a nautical-themes wedding beside the sea at the Victoria Recreation Club near Sai Kung. They had the perfect combination of the woody forest and the calm sea as the backdrop to their special day. The result was an intimate and graceful celebration unlike any other. With Darren LeBeuf behind the lens, we’re in for a treat!
