After over 20 hours of travel, on plane in airport and in car I finally arrived at the Hilton Hotel in Shekou, Shenzhen China. I was so excited! The next morning I woke and ordered room service before heading to the 1st floor of the hotel. I found my way to the event room, eventually, with help from one of the Fancy Moment Wedding Design employees and began sound check. There were about 6 guys standing on the riser where they had hoisted the piano and they were all trying to figure out how to make it look and sound best. At the same time, lol. I played through the main song the Bride wanted played during her walk down the isle about 20 times before everyone was on board with the order of the ceremony. We had to call the tuner back to fix some of the keys on the piano even though he had just tuned it, the piano was still adjusting to the room 🙂 Once he finished with the piano I went to get ready for the much anticipated hour!
The evening began with beautiful videos featuring the newly weds and sharing some of the endearing and exciting steps it took preparing for their new life together. After the video I walked to the stage and began playing. Once the Bridal Party passed over the stage the Bride and Groom were escorted on to meet in the center holding hands. They both gave wonderful heartfelt vows (in Chinese) followed by an inspiriational and uplifting congratulations from the MC. Well over 300 guests sat diligently soaking in the sheer elegance during the toasts and then each table walked around the room and toasted each other in cheer.
The most beautiful wedding I have performed at yet! Located in the Seaworld Ballroom of the Hilton Hotel in Shenzhen China, the Fancy Moment Wedding Design pulled out all the stops for this one! I cannot begin to describe the absolutely beautiful ice-like pillars and translucent drapes that bore dainty white doves like…there I go again trying to explain! Take a look 🙂
