Intimate Home Wedding for Harry & Shuyi

By VOWS Planner/Designer Channy Sea

One of my favorite parts of being a wedding planner in Seattle is hearing my clients’ vision for their big day. Each is unique and takes you on a journey through their life as individuals and as a couple. Harry, a real estate investor and Shuyi, a business analyst, met in Cleveland and fell in love while housemates. Cut to 2015, after a big move to Seattle and the purchase of their dream house in Redmond, they decided to look no further than their backyard for a wedding venue. They wanted a romantic garden feel and what better way to start a life together then to have a home wedding day.

One of my favorite parts of a wedding is the first look. This is the moment when all the butterflies go away and you are able to soak in that special moment that you’ve been anticipating for so long.

The bride is an artist, so she designed their guest "book" cards and seating chart using water colors. Aren't they beautiful?

The groom wanted to top off the celebration by popping a bottle of champagne. Although it was his first time doing this, it definitely didn’t show!

Many congratulations to Harry and Shuyi and a big thank you for letting me be a part of your life’s journey. These two are incredible as individuals, and even more amazing together!

“Channy Sea from VOWS is so awesome. She is a great communicator that learned well about our needs throughout the wedding planning process. She is so experienced that she can give us multiple examples or suggest vendors to meet our specific needs. She is a hard worker too, always on time, sunny or rain, weekday or weekend. Overall, Channy makes the wedding planning process easy and relaxing. At the wedding day, Channy and her assistant organized everything so well that my family and guests were all so satisfied. There must be hassle and problems without her help. The money we spent on her is definitely well worthwhile.”Sincerely, Ming (Harry) & Shuyi
