Monet-Inspired Wedding in the Pacific Northwest | Seattle Wedding Photographer Janet Lin Photography

Amy and Frank’s wedding day was filled with beautiful, artistic details. From the hand-painted backdrop to the incorporation of impressionist artwork in their invitation suite and escort display, every detail was intentional. This wedding was also unique in that Amy and Frank found special ways to pay homage to their Chinese culture, while still maintaining the fine-art style they so desired. The double happiness character on the top of the escort display is a prominent symbol in Chinese weddings. It is meant to convey double the joy and happiness for the newlyweds as they begin their marriage. Including it on the escort display, which featured bookmarks (a nod to their love of reading) made from one of Van Gogh’s most beloved pieces of artwork (a nod to their love of the impressionist artist) created a wedding day piece that was uniquely ‘them’. The table numbers featured both their favorite quotes about love from literary works and Chinese blessings for a happy marriage. They found subtle ways to include red, a prominent color in Chinese weddings that signifies luck, without losing the fine-art feel of their Monet-inspired color palette and overall aesthetic. While I could go on and on about all of the thoughtful details on this day, there is no doubt that the highlight was Woody, Amy & Frank’s beloved golden retriever, who served the role as “best dog” in place of the traditional best man!
