There's no place like Hycroft

Fashioned & formulated by DreamGroup's Principal Planner, Geneve McNally...

When Clara and Gary first contacted me back in November of 2009 from Hong Kong their goal was to obtain assistance in orchestrating a chic Colonial Shanghai wedding that would leave guests blown away and the hosts proud. In working with Clara over those 8 months leading up the wedding we achieved just that. Here below are 12 of my favourite images from this beautiful August wedding held at the stunning Hycroft Mansion.

Hycroft's ballroom featured dramatic Harvest tables set with teal floor length linens trimmed with custom ordered lace overlays. Custom ordered "Chinese" red cushions, white chivari chairs, and linens were from A&B Partytime Rentals.

Place settings were enhanced with a jade "love knot" favour set atop gold trimmed china charger plates and teal napkins.

Marshmallows served as the "cushions" displaying hand made aqua flag Escort Cards.

The unique handmade jewel encrusted cake was created by Thea Wilgress of Sweet Thea Cakes.

Cheerful aqua paper parasols allowed guests to stay cool and shady under the mid day sun.

The bride used a vintage children's book as her Guestbook detailing traditional Chinese wedding customs for the benefit of her Canadian guests.
