Myra and Hao said “I do” in front of friends and family during a Southern wedding at Stella Plantation. Her family heritage is Indian and his Chinese, so their reception consisted of a blend of both cultures. The bride simply dazzled in an empire waist, fit and flare gown with a sweetheart neckline and beaded bodice. Her groom went with a bright navy-blue suit accompanied by a blue and gray striped bow tie and suede shoes. From their naked cake to the table seating and menu cards, this couple’s nuptials from start to end oozed style and a perfect combination of the best trends happening  in the wedding world right now.  

The couple creates yummy concoctions each day and displays their mouth watering treats vis social media. So, naturally these foodies would choose New Orleans, the food capital of the South, as their wedding destination. Their wedding day was a combination of incredible food, surprise choreographed dances, heartfelt speeches and sweet Southern style!  

According to the couple, the two most memorable moments from the wedding day would be:

1. “Seeing all of our favorite family and friends all in one place at our welcome dinner was such a happy feeling. Hao and I kept saying to each other, ‘This is so much fun!’ and ‘we don’t want this to end!’ and then, ‘can we do this over again?’ We are so lucky our friends and family traveled from near and far to join us.”

2. “Probably the second song into the reception, just being totally out of breath having such a blast dancing with everyone. The DJ killed it.”

To them, the best part of the planning experience were, “Tastings. Food tasting, cake tasting, wine tasting, any tasting you can get – and of course, having a very legitimate excuse to explore New Orleans.”
