I love that Yeri + Adam took something that’s a bit played out in the blog world (bunting) and made it fresh and modern, and not at all rustic or vintage, by taking it inside and punching it up with a bright color palette of coral and turquoise. And that cake! Like so many elements in their wedding, it was handmade by a good friend of the couple. The bride took care of the remaining details (no surprise, then, that she has an adorable blog and design business!) Yvonne Wong was on hand to capture all of the details at Eva Restaurant, and she stayed on past the party for a portrait session with the happy couple. Beautifully done, everyone!
And here’s the couple’s sweet portrait session. Yvonne did such a beautiful job!
Describe your wedding cake: My good friend Katie baked the cake to resemble a circus tent. I loved that she carried over the bunting decoration into the cake, which was lemon-flavored with raspberry filling.
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding? I had to reign myself in because I kept thinking of new ideas. This wedding was the epitome of DIY, from the invitations (screen printed by hand) to the hand-held celebration flags. Each new idea created much more work for me.
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? When Adam and I spontaneously did step aerobics on the dance floor. Yes, we’re dorks!
Did you write your own vows? If so, what was your favorite phrase, verse or line? Yes, we both wrote our own vows. My favorite part was when Adam said that he loves me because I give him an excuse to watch the Real Housewives.
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future? For now we’re focusing on school and our careers. We look forward to starting a family later and living a happy, simple life.
