A Modern Garden Wedding at Cecil Green Park House in Vancouver, Canada
To begin their day, Qiu Nicole and Zeng Shan had a traditional Chinese tea ceremony and a Western ceremony at the historic Cecil Green Park House. Protea, tropical leaves and geometric accents decorated the garden site. Qiu stunned in an A-line wedding gown with tulle and lace, while her bridesmaids wore light gray dresses and held hanging DIY bouquets of greenery and white anemones. After the couple said "I do," guests attended a reception at the now-closed Ban Dao Pearl Seafood Restaurant. The couple transformed the Chinese-inspired venue with blue and white drapery and gold chiavari chairs. Arrangements contained the same flowers as the ceremony for a cohesive feel. A marble theme also appeared throughout the day, showing up everywhere from the stationery suite to the geometric wedding cake.
Our favorite #MakeTradition Moment: "The most touching moment was when my father gave my hand to the groom," Qiu says. "It was the first time I've seen my father tear up since I grew up."
