Real Wedding: Kenneth and Shereen

Congratulations dear Kenneth and Shereen, on your recent nuptials! It was an honor to meet you and to be a part of your lovely wedding. Many thanks to Max Goh Photography from Malacca for the photos, and Elegante Wedding for putting together this wonderful event.

Above is the cascading bouquet we created for Shereen. As she is a very petite lady, we took special care to make sure that the bouquet did not look overwhelming on her tiny frame. Using pink roses, rose spray, pink cymbidium orchids and purple phalaenopsis orchids, tied together with a dusty pink satin ribbon, our bride got the bouquet her heart desired. To cut down on size (keeping in mind the bride's physical frame), we plucked each phalaenopsis orchid off the stem and attached them individually to the bouquet.

For our couple's big day, the Wishing Tree team took a little trip down south to the town of Muar in Johor state. The town of Muar is about 150km southeast of Kuala Lumpur, with a population of about 250,000. We were told that this town had never seen a wedding quite so grand as Kenneth and Shereen's!

Our beautiful bride is from Indonesia, and to celebrate her big day, she and her new husband decided to throw a memorable reception for family and friends - Indonesian style aka "grand"! The largest venue for their reception was a hall - so we transformed it into a "ballroom", to our couple's delight. Drapes were used to divide the hall into separate areas for the cocktail reception, foyer and dinner. The hanging umbrellas were part of the hall's decoration, so we used them in our arrangements with fairy lights, flowers, and more lighting.

Adding to the grandness of the evening, we lined the aisle with tall floral stands heavy with lush roses and hydrangea, and young green orchids that have yet to bloom.

A simple and lush floral arch for the stage, filled with hydrangea, roses and phalaenopsis orchids. Most of the blooms are fresh, and some are made of paper! Can you tell which are the papers flowers??

We created a large and low centerpiece for the bridal table. It's not visible in this photo (and we don't have a better picture) but the other side of the arrangement cascades down the table! It is beautiful and lush and full of hydrangea, roses, dianthus, baby's breath and gorgeous phalaenopsis orchids.

Once again, thank you Kenneth and Shereen for sharing your day with us, and your wedding on our blog!

Real Wedding: Chuan Yau and Jennifer

"Pastels" are on our minds for this wedding of our lovely couple, Chuan Yau and Jennifer. Our beautiful bride is from Taiwan, and she loves an elegant pastel palette. It's only fitting that she is surrounded in nature's wonderfully pale colors on her wedding day!

Many thanks to our couple's wedding day coordinator, Mun Tzin from Milestones, and Jon from Jon Low Studios for the amazing photos. It sure was a hot day on the lawn of the legendary Carcosa Seri Negara, but Chuan Yau and Jennifer pulled off their intimate ceremony perfectly.

Pale, sweet colors in pink white and lilac.. Lush and full-bloomed textures... What's not to love about the roses, hydrangea and matthiola? They looked gorgeous against the green backdrop at Carcosa, and complemented the soft, blush-colored bridesmaids' dresses.

See the pouffy stuff lining the aisle? That's tons and tons of organza shaped to look like flowers! We used this wonderful fabric to demarcate the ceremony area on the Carcosa lawn. It's great for effect, and great for the budget!

In the evening, the wedding party moved to DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Kuala Lumpur.

Jennifer's all-peony bouquet made another entrance at the dinner reception. We love it when our couples reuse their flowers from a daytime ceremony at their evening reception. Their beautiful pastel-colored blooms from the wedding ceremony appeared once more later in the day, at the foyer of the reception. All arrangements inside the ballroom were created with the same color palette and flowers, with additional luscious white phalaenopsis orchids!


Thank you Chuan Yau and Jennifer for letting us be a part of your big day, and for sharing it with our readers!
