Shing-Hwa + Andy | Carolina Herrera Wedding from Andria Lo Photography

This is a lovely wedding set in Carmel, California on a Clint Eastwood property called Mission Ranch. How cool is that? Overlooking a farm pasture of sheep and the Pacific Ocean, Shing-Hwa + Andy tied the knot and celebrated with a reception amongst friends and family in the heritage property barn. Not only does this couple possess a lovely relaxed and comfortable quality about them, they look really elegant in their wedding attire. I love Andy’s gray suit and how it perfectly compliments Shing-Hwa’s blush gown by Carolina Herrera. Such unique details: bronze gold sequins in a delicate vine pattern…in layers of silk, horsehair netting, silk blush organza, with a top layer in blue gray tulle. Wow!

Shing-Hwa’s Dress Search
When it came time to pick to a pick a dress, I was open-minded as long as it was elegant. What I did know was that I wanted a blush gown because I wanted it to be more unique. It didn’t hurt that the color is great on Asian skin tones too.

How Shing-Hwa Felt in Her Wedding Dress

Glamorous, unique and light

Why Shing-Hwa Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress
It would be a shame to keep it in a box. A pretty dress should always be given an opportunity to be admired.
