Good Fortune Engagement in Vancouver...Nina + Devan are a beautiful couple who decided to celebrate with tradition. In Chinese culture, the dragon, phoenix, and red and golden colors are thought to bring good luck and happiness and symbolize good fortune.
A Chinese bride’s red wedding dress is called a Qun Kwa or a Cheongsam, a two-piece traditional Chinese wedding gown embellished with auspicious patterns such as dragons, phoenixes, peonies, etc. Qun Kwa means “skirt and jacket,” so a Qun Kwa outfit consists of two parts; a brocade jacket and a long skirt.
Nina grew up idolizing actresses like Ruby Lin in Chinese historical dramas, such as My Fair Princess (Huan Zhu Ge Ge), and always dreamt of what life was like in Imperial China. Although both Nina and Devan grew up in Vancouver, they are tied to their roots and are proud of their ancestry. So the beautiful Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden is the perfect setting to showcase their Chinese culture and heritage. The natural beauty creates a gorgeous backdrop for these two romantics.
We love the fusion of the traditional Chinese look for a thoroughly modern Vancouver couple. The details are so regal – we are especially in love with the intricate red shoes, bedazzled fans, and the modern diamond ring. Good Fortune Engagement in Vancouver is a Fusion wedding beauty that works perfectly for West Coast Wedding couples!
