Eileen and Harry got hitched on May 7th 2011! That day came around quicker than you could say “Wong”, the very name both shared even before they got married! Since their engagement shoot last November we had been in touch weekly and I knew they were getting a wee anxious shortly before their big day- Go figure, after all you don’t just hang out with 300 people on a daily basis! Boy, was I blown away by their composure throughout that day, they were like rock stars: Smiling for the camera and being super pro about posing for family members etc.. Had they started signing autographs, I would not have given it a second thought!
Eileen’s dress got so many AAAAAhhhs and Ooooooohs, it was ridiculous! Made out of 150 yards of silk tulle, it was so delicously delicate! For the ceremony, Eileen wore it with a long train and a sheer endless veil. A real dream of a dress, designed by Monsieur Robert Rodriguez, who also designed the flowergirl’s and the bridesmaids’ dresses
From there it was the First Congregational Church, where awesome Pastor Ken officiated the ceremony.
How Eileen managed to look so incredibly graceful even when her veil caught on something is beyond me- I would have inevitably stumbled and torn the veil…
Then again, Harry totally had her back, literally!
At some point Eileen disappeared and reemerged wearing a traditional chinese wedding dress, adorned with a golden phoenix and dragon. She totally looked like Maggie Cheung from ” In the mood for love”, the beautiful atmospheric film shot by Wong Kar Wei.
For their honeymoon, Eileen and Harry went on a transatlantic adventure to Rome and Paris, had a fantastic time and apparently spent a lot of time at Paris’ Rue Saint-Honoré, Oh là là!
