Erika & Phil's Zhou B Art Center Wedding - Part 1

Erika and Phil seem very much like opposites when you first meet them. Erika exudes a playful, energetic vibe, while Phil is more reserved and quiet. But the two of them together play off their differences and are the perfect pair. They both envisioned a modern, stylish, and unconventional wedding that embraced their Chinese heritage at their unique venue, the Zhou B. Arts Center. They wanted floral arrangements with a loose and organic feel, with tons of texture and funky blooms, and Steve’s Flower Market really stepped up to the task of encapsulating their vision. “The funkier and spikier, the better!” said Erika, so we went with unique flowers like giant King Protea, air plants, succulents, whimsical yellow billy balls, tropical palm fronds, ferns, and tons of greenery.

They were supposed to have an outdoor ceremony, but their late fall wedding fell on a rainy day, so we had to implement Plan B with an indoor ceremony (always have a solid rain plan!!). But they didn’t let that dampen their excitement as they got ready at the Kimpton Gray Hotel. The indoor ceremony in Zhou B’s Spirit Gallery looked beautiful, and served as a clean white backdrop for their sweet ceremony.
