A Whimsical Multicultural Wedding at the Great Canadian Theatre Company in Ottawa, Ontario

Jessica Ludgate (33 and a midwife) and Matthew Yee (33 and an engineer) vacationed in China the month before they were engaged, and let that trip inspire their multicultural theme and color palette of red and gold. The couple held their ceremony on stage at the Great Canadian Theatre Company in Ottawa, Ontario, with guests sitting in the audience, snacking on popcorn. The reception was held at Yangtze Restaurant in Ottawa's Chinatown, with an 11-course Chinese meal. To honor Matthew's heritage, the couple performed a traditional Chinese tea ceremony before the wedding ceremony, and during the reception, Jessica wore a traditional red cheongsam.
