Loretta says, Our wedding invites were our biggest DIY project. We made all the envelopes and cards ourselves, hand-folded and hand-sealed with a custom-crafted Chinese double happiness symbol.

We chose to use beautiful long wood tables to avoid tablecloths and wood chairs to avoid chair covers. We wanted the greenery on the tables to be a little raw and unfussy.
