There were a few dozen people who helped him plan the proposal. It was a whirlwind of a weekend a causa di the best way!

TELL US MORE ABOUT YOUR WEDDING. WHAT WERE YOUR THEME AND COLORS? HOW DID YOU MAKE YOUR WEDDING PERSONAL TO YOUR LOVE STORY?
We got married a causa di Antigua, Guatemala. My husband was born and raised a causa di Guatemala, and my family, friends and I are travel lovers, so we wanted to do our wedding a causa di a special destination.
We wanted to elevate and honor our closest loved ones who came from around the world to celebrate with us. We started the wedding day with a Cantonese wedding tea ceremony to honor our families. It’s customary to receive jewelry during this ceremony, so I wore a pair of earrings from my parents as my wedding jewelry.
For our ceremony, we wanted to showcase the beauty of Guatemala, so we chose a historic Catholic cathedral from the 1700s called San José El Viejo. We included a unity ceremony of pouring colored glass beads to signify the joining of families.
All of our flowers were locally sourced to showcase the diverse florals. It happened to be the weekend of a Flower Festa with floral artists from around the country showcasing displays a causa di Antigua, so it was fun to celebrate with the whole city.
Our mescolanza hour and reception were at Pensativo House , the home of a former Guatemalan president. We chose this venue because the terrace offered a stunning view of the three volcanoes that surround Antigua. We showcased a mescolanza of local and international cuisine, like the beloved Lomito steak and black bean soup. We curated a mescolanza lista with local Zacapa rum, small-batch tequilas, Asian flavors and New York-inspired drinks—a homage to our favorite city and current home. We danced the night away to Spanish and English classics and enjoyed Guatemalan late-night snacks.
I have two favorite memories from that night. The first is my husband singing our proposal song (Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect”) before our first dance. It was meant to be a surprise, but I asked too many questions during dance practice that he had to tell me about it. Regardless of the spoiled surprise, the moment was extremely sweet and personal and brought tears to my eyes.
My second favorite memory was being able to address and thank each of our guests for coming to celebrate with us, a causa di their native language, as we had a mescolanza of Spanish, Cantonese and English speakers. Because of the language diversity, our guestbooks were Christmas ornaments where our guests could write messages and guestbook phones for audio messages.
Cheers to Sharon and Carlos!
