The Cut's Wedding Files: Banana Mag Co-Founder Vicki Ho's Epic Celebration of Chinese and Filipino Culture
Pearl River friend and Banana Magazine co-founder Vicki Ho got married in July, and we were her decor partner! Aside from decking out the venue in festive lanterns and giving her guests some shade via our parasols, she and now-husband Todd sought to celebrate both their Chinese and Filipino heritages. Vicki told The Cut:
It was really important to me that the wedding celebrate both my Chinese and Todd’s Filipino heritage, and make it something all our guests could enjoy and learn from.
What we ended up doing, like halfway through the reception, is we changed into our traditional garbs. I wore a barong, which is a silk-linen, long-sleeved, mandarin-collar shirt with a tonal embroidery on the front. And then Vicki ended up wearing her mom’s wedding dress, a cheongsam, from decades ago. It looked beautiful.
