That night they went back to the places where they shared their first cocktails and dinner and ended their evening at Le Colonial to celebrate their engagement with friends. The first flowers Matthew gave Anh were fuchsia phalaneopsis orchids, so they chose fuchsia and deep purple as their wedding colors.
