Teresa + Shah

It is always a wonderful day on Once Wed when we have the opportunity to feature another beautiful wedding from Kirsten Ellis of Beaux Arts Photographie. Teresa and Shah have been attending the same farmers market for 10 years in Santa Monica, so when one of the regulars, Windrose Farms, offered their property for the wedding the couple knew it was a perfect fit.  It was very important to Teresa for everything to be very eco conscious, and wanted as little waste as possible…

    I love that the bride and groom served their family tea. Really sweet. They look like an insanely cute couple.

    the tea serving is a cultural ceremony that is performed by most east asian families. However, most tea ceremonies I’ve attended have been on a seperate day, or in the morning of the wedding day. I really like the idea of incorporating into the civil part of the wedding – what a great idea!

    The green dress!!! Does anyone recognize or know where to get the green dress in the tea picture? That’s exactly the kind of thing I want for my bridesmaids.

    The dress I purchased at Shareen Vintage for <$100. I believe it was from the 50's, and I altered it so that the straps were removed and the tulle peeked out from underneath :)

    Ah yes, the traditional tea ceremony. We went to one last year, it was so lovely. Held on the morning of the wedding, the couple served the elders tea and gave the younger ones money in envelopes. I LOVE cultural aspects in weddings!

    Theresa, I love everything about your wedding! I especially love that you wore a short dress and that you wore red shoes! I think I may have to borrow that idea! Congratulations and may God bless you and Shah!
