Warisa and Johnny in Rutherford, CA

Warisa's gown was custom-made by San Francisco designer Jin Wang. "I've wanted one of her dresses since I was little," says Warisa, whose dream dress was an ivory strapless taffeta gown with a scrunched taffeta bodice and an A-line skirt. With it, Warisa wore her mother's pearls, which she had shortened; the extra pearls were made into drip earrings. Johnny wanted a classic look, so he chose a two-button tuxedo from Nordstrom. On his cuff links, he wore the initials of his late mother—K.T. for Katy Tai.
