Vicky Cheng and Luke Yang met in the ninth grade. It was the first day of French class when Vicky chose a seat in the last row, to avoid the front of the classroom. Luke rushed into class and took a seat across from hers. They got to talking and learned that they had both just come from China so they exchanged numbers, and began texting daily, often talking about the highs and lows of adapting to a new environment and culture.

Their relationship wasn’t romantic until the last year of high school when Vicky finally agreed to go with Luke as his date to senior prom. (He had repeatedly asked her out during high school, but being skeptical of relationships and never having dated before, she had always said no.) “He bought me the most beautiful pink corsage, which wowed every girl in my school,” shares Vicky. After high school, they began their lives together attending the University of Waterloo. “We have been together for almost every single important moment of life, so we are best friends, a couple, and family to each other.”

Since they’d known each other for so long, the couple mutually decided on their marriage date without Luke formally proposing. They set a wedding date of 5/20 because it is homophonic to “I Love You” in Chinese. At the time, they were also very busy selling their home and finding a new one so there was no element of surprise for Vicky. Then, just a few days before the wedding, Luke asked Vicky to meet him back at their old home. With the staging for sale complete, she expected the visit to be a walkthrough of changes made to the house, but when she opened the door, she found Luke waiting with a bouquet of pink roses (Vicky loves all things pink!). Since the home meant so much to the couple, he wanted them to share one last memory there together. He got down on one knee and officially proposed!


Vicky had always wanted an engagement ring from HARRY WINSTON because of the meaningful symbolism that can be derived from the brand’s HW acronym. (Including “Husband, Wife,” and “Happy, Wealth.”) Wanting to make Vicky’s dream come true, Luke arranged a trip by air to New York City so they could choose a ring at the HARRY WINSTON store. When Covid made things too dangerous to fly, they drove twenty hours through a snowstorm on dark mountain roads to secure it. In the end, they chose “The One” – a brilliant micropavé design with its round shape signifying “fulfilled” and “perfection” in Chinese culture.

The wedding invitations were shaped like pink castles and opened like castle gates to reveal the details. The couple’s wedding logo featuring illustrations of their two dogs was featured on the envelope.

Vicky and Luke both wore traditional Chinese wedding attire early in the day.

For the wedding ceremony, Vicky wore a wedding gown designed and customized by INES DI SANTO. “I was able to add a shiny layer to my dress to make it sparkle in the sunlight,” shares Vicky. She styled the gown with glitter ROGER VIVER heels, a HARRY WINSTON pendant necklace, CHANEL earrings, and a VAN CLEEF & ARPELS bracelet.

Luke changed into a customized navy tuxedo from GARRISON BESPOKE. After the ceremony, Vicky changed into a pink a-line dress by ANDREA & LEO.


The three magnificent floral arches that were the focal point for the ceremony and reception stood a total of fourteen feet tall and twenty-four feet wide.

Vicky and Luke’s wedding took place at the OMNI KING EDWARD HOTEL with event planning and design services provided by FLEUR WEDDINGS INC. Fleur Weddings is a specialty wedding planning company focusing on the needs of Asian clientele. More | Message The all-pink floral and decor provided by INFINITUDE DESIGN came as no surprise to any of Vicky’s guests. “Since I was a little girl, I dreamt about my wedding in an elegant and classic palace, with stunning floor-to-ceiling windows, surrounded by pink roses and crystal chandeliers,” shares Vicky.

The reception space was a dream come true for the bride! Alternating floral centrepieces decorated the guest tables, and a dramatic floral runner spilled over the head table. Three pink velvet couches flanked the t-shaped head table, while guests were seated on chairs with matching pink velvet cushions.


Furniture rentals were provided by DETAILZ COUTURE EVENT RENTALS.

One of the highlights of the wedding was the elaborate fairytale-themed dessert table, at the centre of which were three cakes decorated to look like castles — the central cake even had a horse-drawn carriage!

Since the couple’s toy poodle and miniature schnauzer were not allowed at the wedding venue in person, the couple incorporated them in other ways, including cookie caricatures at the dessert table. “They are like our babies, so we really wanted to emphasize their presence in the wedding,” shares Vicky.
