A Pink-Themed Outdoor Wedding

How does a couple known for their hospitality stage a wedding? By welcoming family and friends from around the world to the heart of California wine country.

Among their friends and family—who hail from California, Massachusetts, China, Taiwan, and India—Leslie and Jeffrey, both 28, are known as superb hosts. "Friends who stay with us say our guest accommodations rival those of a nice hotel," says the bride of their current digs in Boston. So when it came time to plan their wedding, the couple—she's a brand consultant; he works at a private investment firm—knew they had to deliver some serious hospitality. With help from event designer Gloria Wong, they resolved that their wedding would feel like an enchanted evening at their fantasy summer home. Ah, but where? Since the globe-trotting pair had met and fallen in love in San Francisco, they quickly decided on California. And when they drove down the half-mile-long, sycamore tree–lined driveway at Beaulieu Garden, a lavish estate in Napa Valley with acres of vineyards and lush grounds, their search for a dream venue was over. To evoke a cozy "welcome to our home" feeling for their June 19 bash, they set up displays that showcased some of their favorite things—photos from Santorini, Greece, one of their best- loved vacation spots; framed artwork; cherished books; and other mementos from their four-year courtship. In honor of their heritage, they sprinkled in a bit of the Far East, giving out Pocky sticks and pineapple cake (both popular Asian sweets) as favors, and choosing peonies, the Chinese symbol of honor, beauty, and prosperity, as their primary decorating motif. Says Leslie, "They're a good omen for a happy marriage!"
