About The Wedding
The day started off with a traditional Chinese tea ceremony at Hank's parents' home, to welcome Nobuko into the family. Hank and Nobuko served tea to his relatives, as a sign of respect. In return, they received lucky red envelopes. A lunch was served, and we then moved on to a beautifully simple wedding ceremony at the historic Morningside Baptist Church. Finally, guests enjoyed a delicious three-course dinner at 103 West, accompanied by Bob Cardone's keyboard music and accented with flowers in different shades of purple.
My Favorite Detail
Nobuko had three different outfits, to correspond with the three different parts of the day: a short Chinese dress for the tea ceremony, a traditional American wedding gown for the church, and a longer Chinese dress for after dinner.

Comments From The Couple
"My fiancé and I were trying to plan the wedding ourselves when we ran into a few issues with the church site and half of our vendors. We reached out to Daria at Circle of Love Weddings close to the 11th hour (20 days out from the day of the wedding) to help us in our crisis. With her seasoned experience and industry contacts, she was able to help us with several church wedding venues and options. She also revamped and streamlined our entire rehearsal and wedding plans into a well organized task list and schedule that was understood by both families and by all members of the bridal party.
The day of the wedding started early at 5am and ended at 10pm. We were able to pull off our special day full of grace, memories and without any issues. Our guests (who came from all over the U.S. to share in our day) were full of compliments on how well-planned the event was. They were very appreciative and very much enjoyed their evening.
I am very thankful to have had the pleasure to work with Daria at Circle of Love Weddings. She is very professional, organized and personable. I 150% recommend her as a must-have for your successful wedding day." ~ Hank (groom)
