Minimal Shades of Blue Wedding

Blue has been all the rage this season — with indigo, navy, turquoise, and now this minimal blue wedding. But this isn’t your average simple wedding, I mean — how many weddings are inside a museum? This couple explored outside the box and close to their hearts to plan their perfect day, with a handmade ring box made by the groom, calligraphy by the bride’s sister, and invitations and desserts by dear friends. The bride and groom said “I do” in front of a science exhibit and celebrated their big day with touches of tradition in their reception, including a Korean paebaek ceremony and Chinese tea ceremony. Keep scrolling to see charming photos from the special day…

The photographer shares…

Esther and Lionel met at work (she, a product photographer, and he, a financial analyst), and what started as a fast friendship grew quickly into courtship.

With Esther’s modern aesthetic (photographer’s eye and all!), she had a unique yet minimal vision for her wedding day. Esther and Lionel selected the Perot Museum of Nature and Science not only due to its incredibly modern architecture, but also because their guests would be able to enjoy all levels of exhibits during their reception. Because of Esther’s connection to the community as a photographer, she wanted to really incorporate and celebrate her clients – this included Joy Macarons and Paper Affair!

To pay homage to her fiancé’s Korean heritage and her Chinese and Vietnamese culture, they had a traditional Korean paebaek ceremony, as well as a Chinese tea ceremony, during the reception for guests to view and be part of. And in true minimal style, Esther wanted her wedding to be as waste-free as possible, so she chose to use florals minimally throughout the reception. For more personal touches, Lionel actually hand-made the ring box to house her engagement ring, and all calligraphy was designed with love by her sister, Eliza Grace.
