Real Wedding: Azmar and Michel

We have been waiting anxiously to share the gorgeousness of Azmar and Michel's wedding reception held at Carcosa Seri Negara in Kuala Lumpur recently. It's one of those weddings that look so effortlessly luxurious and then surprise you with the simplicity of it! Congratulations and thank you so much for letting us share in your wonderful celebration.

Many thanks to our friends, Leticia Hsu of Events Wizard who planned this luxuriously intimate evening at Carcosa Seri Negara, creating magic as always, and Jim of Jim Liaw Photography for capturing the magic.

The two pictures above hint at what is to come in terms of the colours for our couple's wedding reception. Red is a popular colour in Asian cultures especially among the Chinese for its symbolic good luck, and among other communities for its "festive" mood. It is also the colour of romantic passion. Red is an intense colour whatever the shade, so it is commonly paired with a lighter, neutral shade such as white, ivory, silver, or matte gold. But of course, it isn't always so. Imagine our excitement when Azmar, Michel and their wedding planner, Leticia, came to us with a 'Rouge Noir' theme of red and black!

Mention "red and black" and you might imagine a dark, edgy ambiance along the lines of a 'rock and roll' or goth theme. But take a look at Azmar and Michel's reception and see how you can rock the red-and-black combination for an elegant evening to remember.

We would even call it casual elegance, simple yet tastefully playful, not to mention romantic as well. Jim describes his photoshoot with the easy-going, charming couple as immersed in "quiet elegance", which perfectly matched their personality and dictated the mood of their wedding. Playing with different textures in the florals and decorations, different, deep shades of red and an eclectic mix of gerberas, gloriosa, mokara, carnations, peonies, roses and calla lilies, gave the ambiance a formal but not-too-serious air.

Got a love note from the newlyweds!
Dear Lily, Adrian & team,

Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding so beautiful and for your kind patience and creativity in making it possible! It was perfect and the flowers really brought to life the setting we envisioned.
