One day an American teacher and an American artist met in a garden. They both had a shared love for China and proceeded to fall deeply in love. Fast forward a few years to their beautiful, quirky and emotion filled wedding in Beijing, China.

There is so much to love about Stephen and Shelby's unique wedding ~ it's filled with personal touches, Chinese cultural traditions and striking red decor and details. Not to mention, Shelby is one of the most beautiful, happy brides I've ever seen! The way that Stephen and Shelby look at each other is absolutely magical…

Look out for robot cake toppers, a cute teacher style questionnaire for guests in which they draw a picture of themselves and share their favourite memories from the day and a Yoda money clip!

Don't you just love their adorable rickshaw getaway?!

Congratulations Shelby and Stephen! Thanks so much to Jessica Monnich Photography for sharing these wonderful images.
