Carrie and Lee were married on the most popular wedding date of the year, 10-10-10! Dad photographed their engagement session just a month before their wedding and he was looking forward to seeing them again. In China, the number 10 implies the Chinese idiom “perfection in everything” so getting married on 10-10-10 is thought to bring a couple a perfect marriage. Carrie and Lee included many Chinese customs in their wedding day. They were married at the Davis Islands Garden Club. Carrie started the day with the Michele Renee Hair and Makeup Artist Group for hair and makeup. Carrie was a gorgeous bride! Her gown, shoes, and especially her long veil were all stunning. Lee’s cousin got the beautiful orchids from Everlast, Inc and other wedding flowers were done by Debbie of The Bride’s Bouquet.
The couple had a first sight before the ceremony to be sure to have time for some fun and creative pictures. They had their three dogs there in gowns and tuxes which dad thought was really cute. The dogs also came down the aisle with the bridesmaids during the ceremony processional. One of the bridesmaids was Liza whose wedding dad photographed last December. Liza and Donald are such a fun couple and dad enjoyed seeing them both again.
At the reception, Phillip of Fast Break Entertainment was the DJ and the cake was made by Cigar City Cakes. Carrie changed into a traditional Chinese wedding dress during the reception and dad took her and Lee outside for some night pictures. As the reception came to an end Carrie changed once more into a cute white dress and the newlyweds left through a sparkler departure. After the send off they grabbed their wedding party and had some fun with the sparklers before calling it a night.
Congratulations Carrie and Lee! Everything came together so well to make a terrific wedding day. We hope the Chinese idiom for your wedding date holds true for your marriage!
