Snowy Prospect Park Brooklyn Engagement Session | Allison + Leon

Originally introduced by a friend in Beijing, three months after meeting Allison he just knew. And so, after an initial visit to meet her family in New York, Leon sold everything and moved nearly 7,000 miles to begin their life together. The next year would be a whirlwind of New York wedding plans, trips to Africa, and two additional reception celebrations for their families in China hosting a cumulative 1,000 guests to celebrate their union.

But that doesn't mean there aren't a few nods to their heritage here in New York. With a stunning red chiffon dress for their engagement photos to honor the traditional red attire of Chinese weddings (side note: Allison is one of the bravest brides I know - sporting bare shoulders in below freezing temps is not for the faint of heart!) in addition to the much anticipated Chinese tea ceremony at their late March nuptials - this couple puts the perfect modern twist on cultural traditions.

And I can't wait to see what else they have in store...
