Event Spotlight: An Asian-Italian Wedding Fusion

She’s from Hong Kong, and he’s a New Yorker with Italian heritage.  The two met, fell in love and decided to get married…in Boston!  This summer, we helped this wonderful couple plan their perfect wedding—a celebration with a special nod to both heritages—then helped make their dream wedding come true.

Celebration:  Wedding
Venue:  deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum
Guest count:  150
Vision:  Asian and Italian fusion utilizing only traditional red and yellow colors

Using the couple’s wishes and ideas, we accomplished the Asian and Italian fusion via two food stations:  one Italian station with an interactive chef polenta board and one Asian station with traditional suckling pig and noodle boxes.

Our team continued the fusion by designing a fire and ice display.  It featured a classic New England raw bar enhanced with Asian elements such as tuna tartar with wonton crisps.

The flower displays and bouquets featured the traditional red and yellow colors in beautiful, appropriate centerpieces and table accents.

Entertainment began with a captivating lion dance as guests dined on a starter course and watched, all of them fascinated with the show.

The celebration’s cake was a classic wedding cake in a beautiful, decorated in yellow frosting to match the floral design.  Surrounding the traditional wedding treat were several more delectable delights:  assorted mini desserts like brownie sundae bombs with chocolate pipette, cake pops and a cannoli station.
