Rongze & Jiapeng

“When the big day finally came, we had experienced a lot of things together, and every moment just appeared in my mind like a movie,” says Rongze Xu. Her real-life romance flick goes like this: Girl meets boy—Jiapeng Sun—six years ago through mutual friends when they’re both studying Saint Mary’s University. Boy pops the question at a party with all of their closest friends, a total surprise complete with candles, florescent lights and a photo slideshow recounting their relationship’s highest moments. With the goal of keeping things both simple and romantic, the pair enlisted wedding planner Claudia Habib to help them represent both Chinese and North American culture to create the perfect day. Not only did she help them achieve that goal, she planned it all in seven weeks. “We have really good memories about our wedding, especially since we are not from here, but we held a wedding here,” says Rongze. The pair kicked their wedding day off with a traditional Chinese tea ceremony and continued the festivities with a ceremony and party at the Delta Halifax with more friends and family. Rongze says getting her parents’ best wishes made her the “happiest girl in the world.” “It was perfectly perfect,” she says of the day, crediting her photographer, planner, friends and family. “It was a really precious day in our life.”
