Real Wedding: Pink and Ivan, Part II

Welcome back to Part II of Pink and Ivan's wedding! Previously, we showed you how amazing a wedding can look using a simple but stunning colour palette and especially with some props and accessories. Pink and Ivan did an awesome job planning their wedding with coordinated colours, style, fashion and ambiance... right down to the wedding cake.

In the evening, they held their wedding reception at Hilton Kuala Lumpur. Once again, the colours of fuchsia pink, white and black come into play.... but it looks completely different with a new theme! Our bride picked 'Vintage Boudoir' for a fun, flirty (sexy?!) yet opulent ambiance that we can't get enough of; it's just perfection!

We're feeling that 'Lady Marmalade' vibe! What about you?? We used lots of roses and hydrangea for the floral arrangements, but what made them work so well were the strings of black beads, the fuchsia feathers and the multitude of candles on the tables, in the centerpieces and in the aisle arrangements. To add more depth and dimension to the arrangements, we handcrafted accessories of miniature black and white flowers for the candles and tealight holders.

When the candles were lit and the ballroom's special lighting effects were switched on, Pink tells us that the atmosphere was pure magic and her guests were simply blown away! We are happily inclined to believe her! :)

Our bride tells us: "We had the PERFECT wedding day. Ivan and I had so much fun that we want to get married all over again!" And we at Wishing Tree will be ever so happy to decorate your wedding as many times as you wish to get married, haha... Thanks once again, Pink and Ivan!

Real Wedding: Pink and Ivan, Part I

Hi everyone! We have a STUNNING wedding to share with you this weekend! Thank you, Pink and Ivan, for allowing us to be a part of your big day, and to the talented Jim Liaw and his amazing team for the wonderful photos.

To quote style icon and fashion mogul Kimora Lee Simmons, this was "fabulosity" in the flesh! For a hint of what's to follow, here is an unforgettable photo by Jim Liaw Photography... one of our top favourites!


WOW... We're not ashamed to admit we are in love with this photo! From the colour and composition, to the gorgeous parasols (sourced in Singapore by Pink's maid-of-honour, Ai Wee) and especially our beautiful and sassy bride, it's easy to see why Jim's pièce de résistance was the talk of the entire wedding. We adore the vintage-chic mood of the photo with the vividly-coloured Chinese parasols and Pink's strands of pearls - oh, how stylish! Pink fell in love with Jim's work when he photographed her friend's wedding 5-6 years ago, and knew immediately that she "must have" him for her own wedding. This must be a match made in wedding photography heaven, because it has always been Jim's dream to photograph a wedding with parasols!

Pink and Ivan wanted a 'Midsummer's Romance' theme for their garden wedding at the legendary Carcosa Seri Negara in Kuala Lumpur a few weeks ago, and decided on the colour palette from the very start of the planning process. We decorated this adaptation of Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' using a colour palette of fuchsia pink and white, in honour of our bride's name and the corporate colours of the groom's company, which is fuchsia pink and white. A touch of black was added for a fashionable edge. So chic! Are you ready to soak in the style, fashion, colours and fabulosity of Pink and Ivan's wedding??

The florals for the wedding were simple. Just beautiful, luscious roses everywhere! For added texture and colour, we also used baby's breath, vivid green chrysanthemum pompoms and pink chrysanthemums, and dressed everything up with pink satin ribbons and crystal beads. The wedding theme was really put-together with the fashion, colours, props and accessories, and if that's not absolutely flawless enough, the wedding cake was PERFECT! From the black design on white icing, to the white anemones with black centres, Pink and Ivan really had their cake and ate it too :) It was a gift from Pink's sister-in-law, Carol, who had it custom-made by The Blooming Cake.

We really love the unique style and personalities of our couple that dictated the mood and ambiance of the wedding, making it a day to be truly treasured forever. Check back soon for Part II that took place at Hilton Kuala Lumpur. For more photos, Jim has posted some on his blog. The candid moments are priceless!

Real Wedding: Jacqueline and Elvis, Part II

A continuation from our previous post brings us to Jacqueline and Elvis' evening reception held at Lafite in Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur.

With their taste for contemporary style, it was no surprise that they chose to throw an intimate cocktail reception at one of the most renowned fine-dining restaurants in the city. How intimate? Try a guestlist of only 180 very close family members and friends! Jacqueline and Elvis wanted a location with an undoubtedly contemporary ambiance, and Lafite offered the perfect atmosphere with structured arrangements and modern, minimalist interior design. Our challenge was to complement the modern decor with a warm and inviting mood...

Jacqueline and Elvis like a clean, minimalist decor, so we kept it simple, elegant and classy with glass vases and their favourite white calla lilies. We also used bunches of purple eustoma for a touch of feminine romance and lots of candles for a warm, dreamy glow. Calla lilies were strung up for the main reception area - love that "dancing flowers" effect!

After the party, we were told that the cocktail reception was a real hit with the guests. It wasn't your conventional formal sit-down dinner with hundreds of guests who would normally only mingle with other guests at the same table. Here, Jacqueline and Elvis played the perfect hosts at a casual (and stylish!) affair where everyone mingled freely and had a great time. We give this idea for a wedding reception two thumbs waaaay up! :)

Real Wedding: Jacqueline and Elvis, Part I

Here's a wedding from last October that we absolutely have to share because it was such a unique and true reflection of our couple's personality, taste and values. From the colour palette to the fashion, wedding venues and size of the guestlist, Jacqueline and Elvis knew exactly what they wanted to make their big day an absolutely perfect one.

Their wedding planner, Shen Yi of I Do Weddings, describes our couple as modern with strong, confident personalities, who are well-travelled and love their food, fashion, family and friends. We definitely see a unique couple with modern tastes yet upholds traditional values that are important to them. Jacqueline and Elvis were married at the Church of the Holy Rosary in Kuala Lumpur, in an intimate ceremony before 80 close family members and friends.

Our couple loves strong, bold colours, and Jacqueline's favorite colour is purple - symbolic of deep passion, royalty, spirit and mysticism - which became the main inspiration for the wedding's purple and cream colour theme. The bridesmaids were dressed in elegant purple gowns and the tall pew arrangements that lined the aisle comprised of fresh purple eustoma. The tall pew arrangements were Jacqueline's suggestion after she had seen something similiar on the Internet and thought it was a novel idea for a striking yet classy ambiance - and we agree! Both Elvis and Jacqueline love calla lillies for its elegance and simplicity, which we placed near the altar for a clean and classy decor. For a bit of variety, we created Jacqueline's bouquet with blue agapanthus, rose spray and wax flowers wrapped in luxurious black velvet, black feathers and a diamante buckle - how stylish and chic!

Jacqueline was sexy and gorgeous in a Jason Yek gown - just look at that layered train, so glamourous! Elvis totally complemented his bride's style by looking very sharp in his bespoke suit made in Hong Kong.

Please stay tuned for Part II of Jacqueline and Elvis' big day. We are featuring an intimate evening cocktail reception at the fine-dining gem, Lafite at Shangri-La!

Real Wedding: Gwen and Adrian

We absolutely love a wedding that is bursting with personality, and we are excited to share today's featured wedding of fun-loving couple, Gwen and Adrian. They held their November 2008 nuptials at Avillion Port Dickson, right on the beach. It was pure loveliness in a stylish, casual chic style draped in white with accents of fuchsia pink, deep purple and black.

Gwen and Adrian were impeccably dressed and their look was really pulled together with the right colours and accessories. Our lovely bride looked incredibly stylish in a simple yet stunning one-shoulder goddess gown by Khoon Hooi while Adrian was cool and dapper in a gray Rossi suit from Singapore. Perfect for an equally stylish beach wedding.

The couple worked with Shen Yi of I Do Weddings for a fun and fabulous weekend. So fun and fabulous you'd wish you were on the guest list! In addition to a 48-hour open bar with a "Gwen hearts Adrian" custom neon sign, vodka jello shots (that the couple is known for) and free-flowing champagne, there was also a photobooth for guests to have their pictures taken by a photographer and printed in 15 minutes and - something their guests will never forget - a Ramly Burger stall in the middle of their after-party! Come to think of it, neither will we :)

An interesting bit about our bride is that she's not really into flowers. This was a bit unusual for us, you know, since we are floral designers after all. But she does love chic and flirty. What an excellent opportunity to play with props! For the wedding dinner's centerpieces, the arrangements consisted of glass balls, feathers and white roses - the only type of flower used - piled onto custom-made acrylic boxes in pink, black and deep purple. Gwen's bouquet was the one single arrangement with the most number of flowers, featuring a refreshing splash of colour and happiness. Just look at the bright hues of red, fuchsia, yellow and a hint of green!

For the separate chill-out lounge area set up for the after-party, floor mats, low tables and brightly-coloured pillows were placed on the beach where guests mingled and had a great time singing, dancing, drinking and eating till way past midnight. What a party! With chandeliers, crystal beads, feathers, lanterns, disco balls and lots of candles, it felt like a real private club right on the beach - Adrian and Gwen "absolutely loved" the decor!

Many thanks for Shen Yi of I Do Weddings and The Photoz for the wedding pictures, and especially to Gwen and Adrian for sharing your special day with us. Your unique ideas are an inspiration!
