Woodmark Hotel & Still Spa Wedding – Bijun & Teng
Bijun says that when it came to the inspiration behind the day, "as a visual designer myself, I usually go with two completely different visual directions. My design is either has a very strong visual impact (such as invert colour) or very clean and minimal. For my wedding, it is not really an occasion for people to take in some strong visual impact, so I chose to go with clean, minimal and elegant style. I chose to use a warm colour theme because I want all of us to have a sweet and warm memory for our wedding. White, champagne, blush, peach, grey and sage green is our main colour. For the floral design, we added some special touches to make them more lovely: the white/blush orchids and sage succulents. For the rose, I preferred the garden roses than the regular roses, because they are not being overused, same reason for the orchids and succulents."
"As a designer, I am super detail oriented, and I just love everything that is well designed and is not being overused. For my wedding gown, it is from Zuhair Murad Bridal Fall 2017 collection; it's called VANINA collection. Zuhair Murad is a Lebanese fashion designer. It took about 4 months to make it, and ship it from Europe to the States. The sales told me I am the first person to wear it in the west coast. In the early phase of me hunting for the wedding gowns, I tried on other wedding gowns like Ellie Saab, Reem Acra, Vera Wang. But eventually, I chose this dress without seeing the dress in person (because it's 2017 fall collection, I ordered around January, they don't have it in store) My instinct just told me that this is my perfect dress and I made the right choice. My husband's suit is from Dolce & Gabbana 2017 Summer Collection, we bought it from Beverly Hills boutique. It is also very gorgeous, different and unique, I haven't seen any grooms wear such suit."
