Dorothy and Carlin knew how to celebrate big and in style! Their romantic engagement session was at Filoli Gardens
, one of the most picturesque private garden estates in California. So, Dorothy could fully immerse herself in her love of flowers.
Then, the couple exchanged their vows at the private ceremony at San Francisco City Hall
. That day, they focused on each other and indulged in intimate and special moments for just the two of them.
The elopement was just a prelude to a grand cultural ceremony uniting 250 friends and family. The couple chose an elegant and majestic winery in Sonoma for their truly epic celebration. At the heart of this joyous fete was a traditional Chinese tea wedding ritual, a nod to the couple's heritage and a testament to the importance of family traditions. The ceremony and reception were exquisitely romantic and filled with colorful décor and spring flowers the bride was so in love with.
