Phoebe, a clinical guidelines specialist, and Lee, a principal product support engineer—both from Virginia—met on Coffee Meets Bagel.
On their first date, they bonded over a shared list of bucket list travel destinations, and the surprise to them both that their pets—his dog and her cat—shared the name “Oreo.” They talked and sipped bubble tea until after the cafe closed. Five years later, Lee proposed at a vineyard.
Phoebe says her favorite detail of the August wedding day was the blending of the Eastern and Western cultures—nods to Chinese culture were sprinkled throughout, including the Chinese symbol for “double happiness” on programs, menu cards, signs, and more; and a traditional Chinese lion dance—for a “modern Asian wedding feel.” Lee’s favorite part was the traditional tea ceremony the day before, which he says was intimate and allowed the pair to pay respects to their parents and family.
The wisteria and light gray color scheme complemented the “modern farmhouse” vibe. Favors included Byrd’s Famous cookies and—in the spirit of their first date—bubble tea.
