Ngoc Anh & Josh have one of those tragic but romantic love stories!! As Ngoc wrote it “Tragedy strikes and love develops”. Clearly a fan of love stories seeing as my life is surrounded by them weekly – but this is a unique one! The 1st time I met Ngoc & Josh at The State Room I asked how they met and then got this story …” My parents about three years ago had an awful housefire and lost the majority of their home along with sentimental items such as family photos, videos and baby things. Well as luck would have it, Josh was one of the first at the scene of the fire along with the fire department(I was in Nantucket preparing for a birthday weekend with the ladies). Just a quick background on Joshua, he’s a public adjuster that represents you, the client, when a loss has been suffered. My parents were hesitant to make any logical decision at this point so they left the decision to handle the loss solely on me to make the decision for them. Charming and loaded with a sense of humor, we hired Josh and his company to represent us in handling the claim. Long story short, three years later my parents live in this beautiful new home and anticipating the marriage of their daughter and soon-to-be son in law. When life throws you lemons, make lemonade.” Now the only thing missing from this wedding was the lemonade.. but perhaps the yellow gowns can be symbolic?! Take a peak at this beautiful 6.30.12 event…

Q. The Invitations
Ngoc. The invitations were printed by Invitation Only by Laura Van Da Graff out of Dallas Texas! We used metallic grey, pale yellow and ivory.
Q. Colors / Themes of the day
Ngoc. The theme was more of a modern and slick look using twigs and branches to create a feng shui feel in the room. I love orchids (especially hot pink ones) so we had orchids hanging off the branches along with candles. The color were metallic gray, hot pink and silver. The bridesmaids were in canary yellow dresses, and our amazing florist was able to incoroporate pink orchids in their sleek bouquet of white calla lilies.
Q. Finish this sentence: “One thing I learned from my wedding planning…”
Ngoc. I am so happy that it was an enjoyable experience for the two of us but I am soooo relieved that I get to enjoy a married life with my husband!
Q. What was your inspiration behind your wedding? Can be anything from a color palette to
a location, from a memory to a dress/bouquet/shoes…anything! What motivated you and
most influenced your decisions?
Ngoc. Style me Pretty – I told my planner I wanted to be on the site!! We fell in love w/ the location after attending a charity event the month before we got in engaged. We knew it was the only place we would ever agree on to get married.
Congratulations to the beautiful couple and their incredible families …loved their story !! xoxo
