With the innovative artistry of each year’s unique collection of partners, Soolip Founder Wanda Wen will evoke a theme of “Crystal Showers, Eternal Flowers” for A Soolip Wedding 2013 to convey an elevated art of matrimony and summoned perpetual bliss. According to Wen, “A wedding is a celebration of unconditional love and discovery of pure, untouched beauty that encapsulates life’s most precious moments in one occasion, yet is destined to generate an eternity of meaningful experiences to come.” To capture this emotional essence in a simple yet seductive form, Wen drew inspiration from a vision she created for a ceremony in the Dolomite Mountains of Italy where natural, unpolished crystals dripped from an elliptical chandelier hovering above the betrothed couple as they exchanged vows. “Raw crystals possess a natural and untouched beauty that is simple yet profound,” states Wen. “These mesmerizing stones also contain positive energy that are most powerful in its raw, unaltered form. Wrapping the untouched crystal with gold wire harnesses the love and joy resonating from all those in attendance, while the effect of suspending the stones in mid-air resembles a shower of pure, refined allure.” The symbolic imagery of suspended raw crystals wrapped in gold wire will be showered throughout the 2013 fete.
