He wore a tux. She wore Asian inspired couture. The ushers were ninjas from Karate Kid. Oh yeah – a Samurai and some Geisha girls showed up, too!
I think when Paul Song and Lisa Ling asked their wedding guests to come for their Los Angeles wedding at the Union Station in “Asian Chic” they possibly meant something a little more traditional. But knowing these two and their crazy friends, the event had to be both memorable and over the top!
The wedding itself, a short ceremony held outside the train station, included an adorable poem about how Paul and Lisa met and fell in love and a very touching message about prayers being answered. Then, the newlyweds received their almost 600 guests and entered the Great Hall of Union Station.
Six food carts held Asian delights such as Japanese sushi, Thia dumplings, and Chinese egg rolls. The ticket windows converted to mini-bars and served guests until after 1:00 am. Their was much dancing and celebrating, of course, but the highlight of the reception was the Bride and Groom’s rendition of “I’ve Got You, Babe,” set to their own words.
We wish them well on their honeymoon and as they start their new life together in Los Angeles!
(No costume for me, I wore a simple A-line with a possible Asian themed print.)
