The first thing that stands out about Xian and Sam's wedding is their smiles; this is a couple who looks like they are having a good time (I mean, they give each other high-fives after exchanging rings - how can you not love that?).

And then you notice the colors (captured beautifully by The Collection), which give the day a fresh modern feel - the bright red of the bouquets against the bridesmaids' teal dresses and the browns paired with the teal again of the table settings. And then there are the little details - the fact the wedding was held at an observatory, the ring bearers' suitcases, the individually crafted terrariums on each table, the groomsmen's large, gold belt buckles...Oh, and their cake table where they have little replicas of themselves on their cake!

The result? A classic yet totally modern wedding that is filled with fun and love, don't you agree?
