Stunning Sapa Jade Hill Wedding Dripping With Flowers

May 28, 2024 | justine

Trang and Toan’s dream was to craft the perfect atmosphere for their mountain wedding. In the stunning beauty of Sapa, they aimed for a celebration blending elegance with the calmness of nature. Drawing inspiration from Sapa’s greenery and white flowers, they added soft touches of pastel purple, a tribute to Trang’s love for BTS. Every aspect of their Jade Hill wedding, from the food inspired by their travels to the music on their playlist, was significant to them. It felt warm and inviting, reflecting their journey together.

With endless mountain views as their backdrop, the couple exchanged their vows at the lookout terrace. Adorned with delicate white and purple blooms, the ceremony area was beautifully styled and a perfect setting for their “I dos.” Their restaurant reception continued the stunning theme, with yellow and purple table decor, a ceiling adorned with floral clouds and disco balls, and the soft glow of candles adding to the ambiance. 

Every detail of the couple’s big day was carefully planned and filled with meaning. It’s a sight to behold, and KT Marry beautifully captured every moment. Trust us when we say you won’t want to miss out on experiencing this breathtaking celebration.

The Couple:

Trang and Toan

The Wedding:

Jade Hill, Lao Cai Province, Vietnam

Adding Meaning to Their Jade Hill Wedding Through Music and Food

We wanted our wedding to feel cozy and welcoming, reflecting our journey together. Everything, from the food inspired by our travels to the music on our playlist, had special meaning to us. We treated our guests to delicious dishes from Sapa, showing off the region’s tasty food. Our night was filled with romantic jazz, Disney songs, and lively Korean pop, representing the different parts of our relationship. But the best part was spending time with our loved ones from all over the world. Dancing under the stars, surrounded by nature, reminded us of the love that brought us together. Our wedding wasn’t just a party but a celebration of love, shared dreams, and making memories together.

How Rain Transformed Their Jade Hill Wedding Day

The most unforgettable moment happened unexpectedly over two days. We were getting ready for our ceremony in Sapa’s beautiful landscapes when a sudden rainstorm hit the Saturday we planned to wed. So, we all decided to postpone it until the following day. What happened then was truly magical. At dawn, with a stunning sky after the rain, we shared special moments we’ll never forget. Having rain on our wedding day is seen as lucky and prosperous in Vietnamese culture, so it felt like a good omen for our journey together.

Infusing Their Jade Hill Wedding with BTS-Themed Highlights

Our ceremony was a deeply personal affair, reflecting our journey and passions. As I’m a devoted member of the BTS Army, we infused elements of the band’s music and aesthetics throughout the event. Shades of purple and yellow, reminiscent of BTS’s vibrant visuals, adorned our floral arrangements and bridesmaids’ dresses, infusing the ceremony with a lively energy. One of the unique parts was having our closest friends be the officiant and MC. They know us well, so they made the ceremony and reception feel like they were made just for us. With their funny jokes and nerdy references (perfect because I’m working on my PhD), the officiant talked about our journey as a couple and what adventures we have ahead as husband and wife. And the MC made sure everyone felt included, switching between English and Vietnamese effortlessly. Plus, the fact that these friends are twins made it even more magical. 

Why You Should Start Your Wedding Planning Process Early and Find the Right Planner

Start your wedding planning process early by prioritizing finding the perfect wedding planner. Look for professionals who understand the wedding industry and are open to creativity while giving you valuable advice. Choose a planner who gets your vision and can help you develop the overall theme before you start picking vendors so everything fits together smoothly. It’s important to be flexible; as your ideas develop, some vendors might not fit anymore, and that’s alright. Planning ahead helps you book the vendors you want and ensures your wedding day goes just as you imagined.

The Significance of Sapa: A Wedding Venue Full of Meaning

We’re proud to choose Sapa, Vietnam, as our wedding location. It’s like Aspen, where the groom went to school, with its majestic mountains. We wanted our guests to see its natural beauty, and they were amazed by it. We’re also grateful for how far our guests traveled to be with us. We know it was a long journey, especially for those coming from the US, and we’re touched by their love and support. 

The Importance of Equal Involvement During Wedding Planning

We ensured that we were equally involved and had a say in all the decisions during the wedding planning. It was important to us that our vendors understood that our opinions mattered. This way, we could create a celebration that showed who we are as a couple. I’m proud to see Toan taking center stage in different moments during the wedding, whether in the getting-ready photos or as the main character in our love story.

The Groom’s Justin Bieber Transformation

One of the most unforgettable moments of our wedding was when Toan surprised me and our guests with a choreographed dance. He performed Justin Bieber’s “One Less Lonely Girl,” a song that meant a lot to us. Toan spent weeks planning and practicing late into the night to pull off his transformation into a convincing Justin Bieber look-alike, complete with a blond wig, white skinny jeans, and a purple hat. His sincere and enthusiastic performance made it a cherished memory of our wedding day.

I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect team to bring all of our dreams to life and exceed EVERY SINGLE one of our expectations! I will 1,000% recommend Lupita.

10. YucatanLove Wedding Planners

Good for: Couples looking to redefine sophistication

Review: “After interviewing 5 different wedding planners in the Yucatán, we chose YucatánLove, and it was the best decision ever made for our 100-person destination wedding! YucatánLove is an expert in the wedding planning business with multiple planners and social media, finance, design, and travel concierge teams that make the destination wedding planning process seamless. Since my husband and I are based in NYC and had a destination wedding in Mérida, all of our meetings were virtual. Our primary planners were Laura and Ahimsa, and they went above and beyond to make our wedding day magical. All of our documents were efficiently organized via Google Drive, and the team was readily available and responsive on WhatsApp. The team was also very attentive to our wedding style, and they always found a way to make the impossible possible. Every planned design, layout, and schedule envisioned prior to the wedding day was executed EXACTLY as discussed on the actual wedding day. YucatánLove also has an extensive list of trusted and high quality vendors they work with. Our wedding guests told us they had the best cocktail food/drinks and 3-course wedding meal ever, thanks to the vendors that YucatánLove suggested. Some guests even shared that it was the best wedding they have ever attended. We couldn’t have done it all with the whole YucatánLove team!”

11. Nomad Wedding Atelier

Good for: Couples who want heartmade, bespoke wedding memories

Review: “Simply the best. Cynthia organized my civil wedding in 5 days, when everyone said it wasn’t possible, she made it all possible! And I’m a foreigner, which makes things much more difficult. Thank you so much for the excellent work!”

12. Hugo Martin Weddings

Good for: Couples looking for high-end wedding help

From getting ready, transporting to the venue, getting dressed, changing outfits, eating, etc., there was someone there supporting and guiding me through to ensure nothing but perfection. Every part of our day was filled with the highest amount of love, even from the staff and vendors. I wish we could live it all over!”

13. Living For Tomorrow

Good for: Couples who want to host a sustainable celebration

Review: “Hannah and Sophie are an amazing duo, hard-working, organized, and diligent.  An unstoppable force. We chose Living for Tomorrow for their beautiful taste and sustainability focus. They not only delivered – they went above and beyond. They made sure our day was perfect from beginning to end, taking care of all the details, big and small. Their industry contacts are second to none. Maybe we’re biased because it was our own, but we really do think it was the best wedding ever. We wish we could do it over and over again.  I would not hesitate to use Living for Tomorrow again for future events. Perhaps we’ll have to throw another big party just so we can!”

14. MO Weddings

Good for: Couples planning a destination wedding that want consistent communication along the way

Review: Maryta was an amazing coordinator for our wedding this past December. We currently live in Washington but were having our wedding at Papaya Playa Project in Tulum, Mexico. Maryta was invaluable in making this wedding be magical and in coordinating all of the vendors and the vision from two timezones and a language away. She was always readily available for texts, calls, or email questions we had, as well as always having dedicated time for us to go through the different aspects of the wedding. She and her team executed a beautiful ceremony and were even able to work with the groom secretly to surprise the bride with a Pinterest-worthy cocktail hour and reception that wasn’t originally planned. Maryta made us feel cared for and handled all of the intricate details that go into the actual event of a wedding day, and we wouldn’t have had the same special day without her. We would recommend her and her team to anyone considering a wedding in Quintana Roo, Mexico.”

 15. SOS Wedding Planners

Good for: Couples who want a wedding that is the epitome of chic

Review: “When our initial wedding planner became unresponsive, we reached out to SOS Wedding Planner in a panic. To our amazement, Maggie and Angie promptly called us and sprung into action, contacting the hotel manager and addressing our concerns even before we officially hired them. Their level of care and immediate response convinced us to make them our permanent planner. It was the best decision we made. They consistently responded to our messages and emails, despite working across different time zones and varying hours. Even when they were busy, they ensured to communicate with us, never leaving us hanging. Communication was a challenge with other planners in Mexico, but SOS excelled at it. They not only turned our dreams into reality but also provided valuable suggestions and showed genuine care. They had an incredible knack for remembering details and organizing our thoughts when we felt overwhelmed. We couldn’t have asked for a better team.”

16. Santo Amor

Good for: Couples looking to have a true Mexican celebration

Review: Rox planned and coordinated our good friends’ wedding in SMA, so we got to see firsthand how good she is at her profession. We knew right away when we decided to do our elopement in SMA that Rox would be our planner- we just hoped she would be available for our date! Thankfully, she was, and we absolutely loved working with her. Rox has this very calm, soothing energy about her that made us feel constantly reassured and cared for throughout the process. Planning from the States was a breeze with Rox. She is a wonderful listener, she went above and beyond to find the perfect shamans to guide us through our amazing Toltecan pre-Hispanic ceremony. She was always available to answer our questions and was very communicative. She is super personable, and we had a lot of fun planning our elopement and hanging out with her! Thank you, Rox!”

17. Angelina Cardenas Events

Good for: Couples who want to make wedding planning as stress-free as possible

Review: Angelina“When I first started working with , someone told me “you’re in good hands with Angie.” She was beyond right! Planning from a different country can be stressful, but every time I spoke to Angelina, she put me at ease. She made sure everything went according to plan and went above and beyond to make our wedding the best party anyone has ever been to. You can trust her 100% to pick out the most amazing vendors, venue, and décor. We can’t thank you enough for making our night extra special. We want to do it all over again!! This wouldn’t have been possible without you and your team. Thank you for everything!”

This St Pancras Renaissance Hotel Wedding Was Described as “Romeo and Juliet Meets London Spice Girl”

As true Londoners, Tania and Tom loved soaking up the city’s vibes. So, they decided on a fun and exciting London-themed wedding that ditched tradition. Their venue? It wasn’t just any place but an iconic spot with a rich history in London’s transport scene. Plus, it was where the Spice Girls danced to their ’90s hit “Wannabe.” Tom adored trains (he’s a bit of a geek in a charming way), and Tania was all about girl power. So, it made perfect sense. Picture Baz Luhrmann’s “Romeo and Juliet” mixed with a dash of Spice Girls fanaticism. From start to finish, their St Pancras Renaissance Hotel wedding was a vibrant ode to their love, proving that when two worlds collide, magic happens.

In awe of the beautiful gothic revival setting, the couple exchanged their vows by the warm glow of the fireplace. Junebug florists The Way to Bloom added some flair and adorned the altar with vibrant floral pillars and playful disco balls, infusing the ceremony with bursts of color. And the party was just getting started! At the reception, the tables were filled with colorful centerpieces. To add a final touch, a neon sign behind their sweetheart table perfectly captured the vibe of the party. 

The pair’s big day was a delightful mix of fun and elegance, brimming with vibrant colors and impeccable style. If you want to dive into every little detail, Amy Faith’s snapshots tell the complete story.

The Inspiration Behind Their Unconventional St Pancras Renaissance Hotel Wedding

We didn’t want anything too traditional. Meeting, working, and living in London (the best city in the world), we wanted something that reflected our relationship and summed us up as a couple. Being Londoners, we always take advantage of everything the city offers. It was super important to us to have a statement London wedding that avoided the boring clichés of a typical wedding. So, we went for a fun, vibrant, and non-traditional design. Think Baz Luhrmann’s “Romeo and Juliet” meets London Spice Girl fangirl.

Having Friends and Family Speak was the Highlight of Their St Pancras Renaissance Hotel Wedding Ceremony

Nothing comes as much of a surprise on the wedding day, especially after a year of meticulous planning and involvement in every detail. However, inviting family and friends to speak during the ceremony was truly exceptional. We deliberately chose not to know what the readings would be, so hearing their words, which they believed reflected us as a couple, and listening to their advice was profoundly meaningful and emotional.

Blending Tradition with London’s Energy

We thought about having some of our wedding pictures taken on the underground. As Londoners, public transport is a massive part of our daily routine. Tom’s passion for transportation, or as I call it, his “train nerd” side, adds to the connection. Plus, the underground holds a special significance for me: during WWII, my great-grandmother took shelter in the underground during a raid and came back to the house being bombed whilst pregnant with my nan. It’s a part of my family history that makes me grateful daily. When planning our wedding, we wanted something representing us as a couple. We loved the idea of blending glamor with London’s everyday hustle and bustle. So, capturing moments in our wedding attire amidst the city’s energy was the perfect fit.

Balancing Wedding Preparations and Quality Time

Wedding planning can indeed feel overwhelming, with a never-ending to-do list. But before you know it, the big day will be here and gone in the blink of an eye. Our advice? Try to enjoy the process as much as possible. Make the most of every vendor meeting, and don’t hesitate to enjoy that drink offered by the wedding venue. And amidst the chaos, don’t forget to make time for each other—schedule date nights to discuss wedding preparations together. It’s these moments that will make the journey memorable and enjoyable. Lastly, I can’t stress enough how crucial it is to record all wedding expenses. Expenses can add up quickly, even for the smallest, most intimate weddings. A clear overview in black and white will help you stay on track and organized throughout the planning process.

Bringing Their Vision to Life Starting with an Iconic and Meaningful Venue

St Pancras Renaissance Hotel is special in London’s architecture and boasts a rich transport history. Fun fact: it was even the setting for the iconic 90s Spice Girls “Wannabe” music video. With Tom’s passion for trains and the bride’s love for girl power, it felt like the perfect fit. As for the overall aesthetic, we aimed for something beautiful, untraditional, and memorable. Thanks to our fantastic suppliers, we were able to bring this vision to life. After all, the little details truly make all the difference.
