Season 5, Episode 8
“Catherine & Eddie”
Eddie falls head over heels for Catherine when he spots her at a party in their hometown of Houston four years ago, but she is leaving town for law school and he is staying behind to become a resident surgeon. When Catherine returns to work in her family’s restaurant business, they meet up again and this time, she falls for him too. Now they are ready to walk down the aisle and they’re pulling out all the stops.
Catherine’s family is shelling out $700,000 to create an incredible garden atmosphere that Catherine and Eddie will never forget.
The couple’s “floral fantasyland” theme will be beautifully expressed by an array of pink, lavender and ivory flowers with a price tag of $100,000. The bride selects colors that are romantic and feminine to create a soft palette as guests enter the ceremony site and ballroom for the reception. Since Catherine is Chinese and Eddie is Korean, they included unique Asian accents in the overall design.
The thousands of flowers are featured in the lighting design as well. The ballroom will be softly lit by large canopies fringed with pink, red and lavender blooms to create a pastel paradise. The wedding and reception will be held in the same room, but will have two completely different looks, showcased by two separate palates. The guests will enter a ceremonial hall done up in pink tones. When they return after cocktails, they will find the ballroom transformed and all a glow in shades of lavender.
Finally, it’s the wedding day. As the bride gets ready, she takes a moment to present her bridal party with gifts of rose and amethyst jewelry. Her own jewelry of South Sea pearl earrings with diamond bows and a South Sea pearl necklace complement her ivory wedding dress perfectly. Catherine’s parents helped her choose her romantic Lazaro designed gown.
The evening ends like fairy tale with Catherine and Eddie being swept away by a horse drawn carriage.
