One of their friends, illustrator Sarah McIntyre, drew cartoons that Southall Eden Paperie translated to the invites + cocktail napkins. What a cute idea!

A favorite memory, via Leisl…

Ryku’s uncle speaks very little English, but is a huge fan of country music. He has memorized the words to many of his favorites, and the band asked him up to sing “All My Exes Live in Texas”. The crowd absolutely loved it and it really set the mood for a truly memorable celebration with our family and closest friends.

Leisl + Ryku’s planning advice? Don’t be afraid to hire a professional. They’ve probably been in similar scenarios before—like planning a wedding on a different continent than where you live—and can help make it as stress-free as you’d hoped.

Wishing you two the best!
