Bridal Sign Up

Jessie Ding & Ning Jin

September 7, 2013 | Beaulieu Garden, Rutherford

Jessie stunned in an Annasul Y. mermaid dress with allover lace and beading, while Ning wore a tailor-made tuxedo by Tai Pan Row Tailors in Hong Kong.

Bridesmaids donned silk chiffon J.Crew dresses, while groomsmen looked dapper in bow ties.

Chic paper umbrellas were passed out to guests.

Sharla Flock Designs accented the stunning tablescapes with dark wood furniture and hanging chandeliers.


The elegant cake by Sweet on Cake featured cherry almond, chocolate raspberry truffle and strawberry basil flavors.

The bride carried garden roses, hydrangeas, orchids, dusty millers, fresh mint and peonies.

The Couple
Although both Jessie and Ning lived in New York at the time, the couple didn’t meet until they were set up by a mutual friend over drinks in Hong Kong, and the rest is history!

The Details
Planner Brandy Cabral of Bliss Event Productions outfitted the gardens with a romantic blush and mint palette, paired with ombre touches, and family and friends flew in from all over the world—New York, Shanghai, Sweden and more— to celebrate the nuptials.

The Party

Jessie and Ning kicked off the night with a first dance to The Beatles’ “Here, There and Everywhere,” while guests sipped specialty sangria—a nod to the couple’s first date, where they shared Spanish tapas.
