Amy and Kiet’s wedding was a total reflection of their style, personalities and great taste. This now New-Yorker couple definitely knows how to throw a party for 350 guests and making sure everyone had a great time. An intimate backyard wedding ceremony was held a day prior to the celebration so they could spend quality time with their close friends and loved ones.
Their wedding day started off with a romantic reveal at the Graydon Hall Manor where they saw each other the first time in full wedding attire. The day progressed with plenty of photography as well as a Chinese tea ceremony and reception at Eglinton Grand. There were 70 family members invited to the tea ceremony, which broke our team’s record with the most family-attended tea ceremony we’ve ever planned and facilitated. After the tea ceremony, the guests are ushered to the cocktail reception.
The couple wanted to enhance the art deco ballroom by incorporating more Chinese elements in the design. Red mokuba orchids were used as centrepieces. Instead of a traditional head table, they opted for a harvest table where both immediate families are seated together creating a focal point in the room. Amy had commissioned a comic artist to create a one-page comic for Kiet as a wedding gift and was based on their love story. Details of the comic strip were added to the stirring rods as well as the guestbook, telling the story of the couple. The dance floor was packed once the talented DJ Lissa Monet started spinning and guests were treated to various wok stations in the late evening to fuel up from all the dancing.
