I met Shirley via Stella, a mutual friend, and found out that she was actually a fellow Malaysian.
We clicked immediately, as most Malaysians far away from home do, and chatted about how much we missed the food and how much we did not miss the heat.
Shirley moved to the US with her family a long time ago, and live in Georgia these days. Shirley met Miao here in Washington when she was at UW. Miao, a Chinese businessman who exports seafood to China, is a softspoken, unassuming gentleman. Together, they make a really cute pair. All of the seafood prepared at their wedding were from Miao’s!
You’ll notice (but barely) that Shirley is pregnant during their wedding here at Chateau Lil. Not only that, she was also 8 months along!? Some women just have the genes – and also the courage :D. We were all worried that she would pop in the middle of her big day! Shirley and Miao welcomed their son about a month after their wedding :).
Other than the breathtaking venue, Shirley and Miao’s wedding was styled florally by none other than Rachel Bowes of Finch & Thistle. The antique roses are just to.die.for!!
Thanks for inviting me to shoot your big day, Shirley and Miao!
Gorgeous florals from none other than Finch & Thistle!
