hidden paradise in beijing

i wasn’t quite sure how i came up with this destination for our pre-wedding shoot (or some call it engagement shoot), probably coz both me and my fiance love the unpolished ruggedness of the city, and the fact that it has so much history.

so with our very good friends, MoMing the photographer and his buddy Jeff, the very talented makeup artist Coral, 5 of us set off for a packed yet unforgettable trip to Beijing!

the “secrecy" and laid back hu tong’s (alleys). how can this beijing signature not be one of our chosen spots for pics?

should bridal wear be categorized under fashion as well? not sure, but just feel like sharing my gown too! hahahaha!

too many people wore tube dress, and i have always fancied one with lace shoulder straps and a V back line;  a simple bun for the hair; a vintage veil and a handmade peach colored bouquet.

my dream came true. 🙂

this was taken in a public library in the far away suburbs (around an hour drive).

just peaceful and unbelievably beautiful.

the library viewed from the outside. designed & built by an architecture professor from Qinghua University.

Did a lot of research before getting there, but i’m still worried about getting lost, or disappointed by the actual site.

I didn’t. In fact, we all got mesmerized by this beautiful place.

We’re just blessed.
