Game, set, (perfect) MATCH! After meeting through USC’s badminton team, it was game over for Irene and Kelvin’s dating world, as there was no competition to beat their connection with one another. To honor the sport that brought them together, they weaved the game into their wedding day with shades of purple, pink, and white for a celebration that’s one part colorful and the other filled with culture.
With the ever-beautiful Rosewood Sand Hill to set the scene, the day started with a Chinese tea ceremony, accompanied by traditional garments to honor the couple’s families.
Their outdoor ceremony setup showed off the exposed Santa Cruz Mountains; complete with an abundance of blooms and a pom flower wall made by the mother of the bride. With the help of their event planner, Two Perfect Events, the floral-filled aesthetic continued into the ballroom, where the bride recalled the design stating “It felt like a purple wonderland.“ She continued, “The reception centerpieces were a mix of compote bowl florals and hurricanes filled with water, florals, and floating candles,” all of which came together for a whimsy, yet elegant look.
A variety of food stations, a badminton-themed wedding cake, tea tin favors and a whole lot of dancing rounded out their vivid day; all beautifully captured by Jasmine Lee Photography.
