Sometimes a wedding is not just a union of two people, but a blending of two cultures. When I first met Chloe and her then fiancรฉ, Richard, they were in the midst of planning their church wedding in England. Chloe wanted a gown that celebrated her Filipino heritage while reflecting her husband-to-be’s customarily proper culture. Both traditions strongly reflect a love for the classic and romantic, which was a perfect description as well for their picturesque union in a little medieval church in the Oxfordshire countryside ๐Ÿ™‚
