In June 2005, Rosaleen and Yoshi first met through mutual friends who had invited them to attend an Asian Comedy show in Atlanta. They quickly realized that they had similar life goals, passions, and interests. Five years later, they got engaged in Tokyo, Japan.
While working overseas in Hong Kong and Singapore, Yoshi was searching for the perfect diamond and destination in Asia to get engaged. The two got engaged in the posh Ginza district of Tokyo, Japan. The proposal included a charm bracelet with three charms that signified Rosaleen’s passions: (1) a dog – for Rosaleen’s love of animals (2) music notes – for her love of music and (3) a fork, spoon, and knife – for food – which he called “Rosaleen’s driving force in life.” The fourth “charm” was Rosaleen’s ring.
After all the wedding planning (from across the world), now you can see the fruit of their labor. Both Yoshi and Rosaleen wanted to incorporate aspects of their Japanese and Taiwanese heritage such as the double happiness character, folding fans, origami cranes, and lucky cats. As a tribute to their travels and adventures in Asia, they wanted to share fun stories, interesting facts, and famous foods from each destination with their guests. This is Part 2 of 2 of their wedding. You can see all the sleek and modern details of Rosaleen and Yoshi’s wedding at W Hotel Midtown Atlanta here:
