If you love bold colors, an outdoor ceremony, and elevated style with a classic twist, then this wedding is for you. Stella and Minh spent their entire wedding day at the MIT Endicott House in Dedham, Massachusetts, near Boston. They call it a house, but it was more like a mansion with a room for every part of the day and an amazing backyard for the wedding ceremony.
I always love when the bride and groom get ready together, it seems more natural, and I find that couples tend to be more relaxed when they can prepare for the day together. They had three outfits total, a traditional Korean wedding outfit, a traditional Vietnamese wedding outfit, and a traditional American wedding outfit. They wanted to honor all three of their cultures by showcasing the different wedding attire and traditions.
The ceremony was small and elegant, with sweet touches of orange roses near the wedding arch. The bridesmaids wore peach silk dresses, and the groomsmen had navy tuxes. They said beautiful vows, and then their guests threw confetti and rice to celebrate the two becoming one.
The reception was on the terrace of the MIT Endicott House. Wildfolk Studio did such an amazing job with all the flowers. The vibrant colors made everything pop in just the right way. Soul Cake Shop designed a decadent cake in an orange color scheme that mirrored the florals. José Allende, a classical Spanish quartet, played music while everyone swapped stories and shared a meal. After speeches, the dancing began, and one of their friends played DJ for the night. Stella wowed us all by changing into her fourth dress of the evening and the incredible night ended with everyone sweaty and full of love on the dance floor.
