Red and Oriental

Monday, February 18th, 2013

Location: E & O Hotel, Penang

I guess it is a good time to put up this post in conjunction with the festive season of Chinese New Year.

As a sign of respect to her Chinese roots, the lovely and elegant Mei Yee (bride) wanted traditional elements in her red theme wedding.

Aiming for a clean, modern look with Chinese accent, I used a few elements to design the theme:
