Pelican Hill Wedding

On the wedding day, the groomsmen enjoyed lunch and golf and a leisurely morning while the ladies sipped champagne. As a wedding day gift, the bride received her dream Jimmy Choo “Cinderella shoes” as they are known by many and could not wait to show them off down the aisle.
The couple shared an intimate first look in the courtyard before preparing to walk down the aisle to a hand-picked string quartet. Once they said their vows and held their ring exchange, they promenaded back down the aisle waiving to friends and family as the newly married couple.
Guests were serve cocktails in the courtyard while watching the sunset on a beautiful California day before making their way to the ballroom. A four-course dinner awaited them as well as many traditional Chinese wedding games and a quick wardrobe change into traditional Chinese wedding attire for both the bride and groom before the dance party was underway.
It was truly a night to remember for all!
