 Standing under a big, beautiful tree on a late summer day in September, couple Tina and Alan tied the knot during their garden wedding at the Allied Arts Guild in Menlo Park, California. Pink, purple and fuchsia wedding decor details filled the ceremony and reception spaces, contrasting brightly with the location's lush greenery. A clean modern look greeted their guests and an environment of fun filled the air. Family involvement and honoring their Chinese heritage was very important so they included a tea ceremony and a special thank you to their parents.
