m about to lift your Monday spirits: it’s time we jet to Mallorca as virtual guests of this lavish, wonderful, beautiful, fairytale wedding.
And I don’t mean it was a fairytale for just the bride and groom, no. If you were one of the 175 guests to experience this epic & perfectly planned Mediterranean extravaganza you would be sure you were living amongst modern wedding royalty.
Where do we start, really? For one, the venue: a 232-acre Spanish fort with a ceremony aisle through shimmering pools leading to three arches that viewed to the Mediterranean Sea. There was also the fashion, bride Ying’s ensemble included not one, but two stunning custom Galia Lahav gowns. One of which was chosen by the groom, the other featuring a ten-foot-long train – how regal?!
And to help aid in the guests’ experience, the five day Western & Chinese celebration included special celebrity guests making live performances (one special one during their first dance!)
You’ll just have to see the rest of the magic for yourself…
He proposed romantically on Christmas Day in the Maldives at the amazing Soneva Jani. He took me out on a boat to a private island where it was just the two of us eating dinner.
As the sun was setting, he showed me a large wooden treasure chest that he had buried in the sand beforehand, filled with many awesome gifts. At the bottom were matching “Ugly Christmas Sweaters” that said “Hubby” and “Wifey”. “What do you mean wifey?” I said, and right then, he got down on one knee and proposed with a beautiful ring!
We took a few days to enjoy our romantic time together and then flew off to Taipei where he had coordinated all of my friends coming in to celebrate. We had so much fun!
I knew if I ever got married, I wanted to be married in a Galia Lahav dress. I first went to Kinsley James in Walnut Creek for the Galia Lahav Trunk Show. Since they were only featuring the latest designs, I tried on a few GL dresses and was in love with the Ms. Elle dress. I asked to customize a dress and took parts of three different dresses and added them together. I also added a 10-foot train to extend the existing train. Galia approved the design and I was in love when I had my first fitting.
Fun story about my second wedding dress, which was also a Galia Lahav. After ordering my dress with Kinsley James, I was in LA with my husband and we noticed there was a GL store. We called for an appointment to see if there are any reception dress that I can order. My husband, being “Groomzilla”, was very bummed that he could not pick my wedding dress. So I told him he can pick my reception dress.
He didn’t pick Ms. Elle. He picked Gia. But he wanted a very big Gia. So we customized the second dress and made sure it arrived at the same time as my ceremony dress.
Never in my wildest dream, did I think I would end up with two custom Galia Lahav dresses.
