Irene and Steve started out as friends, later decided to date, and have been together ever since! Their wedding took place on the 4th of July at a friend’s home in Christiansburg, Virginia and about 40 of their family and closest friends attended. There were thunderstorms and rain all morning but the sky cleared up just minutes before the ceremony! Irene’s family traveled all the way from Malaysia to be here for the special day and it was also their first time in the United States! The garden and pond looked so beautiful and I just loved the lily pads. Both Irene and Steve are into feng shui and chose three colors for good luck, horizon blue, teal, and purple. Oh and Irene surprised Steve by having the hokie bird show up since he is an alum!
