Ann accessorized her ivory, dupioni silk gown with delicate pearl drop earrings. The dress featured a lace overlay on the bust and an asymmetrical front hem, allowing a little peek at the layers of taffeta underneath. Two fresh orchids in her hair made for the perfect accents.

Set atop a chocolate-brown table, the white buttercream-frosted confection was decorated with green ribbon. Delicate pearl piping and green cymbidium orchids adorned the cake, while a border of hot pink rose petals added a punch of color. The two etched crystal flutes served as the couple’s “something borrowed” from the bride’s mother.

The couple opted to have a Western ceremony. The altar was adorned with hydrangeas, white roses, and calla lilies intertwined and placed on large cylinder vases filled with water to avoid obstructing the view. A white runner marked the aisle and was accented with scattered white rose petals.
