Public Information

Peggy Cheng (VC class of 1993) wore this dress for her wedding to Chris Morrow (also VC class of 1993) on July 1, 2006, in Philadelphia at Bartram's Garden.

“In keeping with Chinese tradition, my dress was a red silk dress. It had gold embroidery, and was sent to me by my mother from Taiwan. She selected the fabric and had it made, with some measurements she took from me over the phone. Once I received it I got it altered a bit, but otherwise it's exactly the dress she sent. I think she sent one sketch of what she thought it would look like (the neck, length, shape, etc.). Chris just wore a nice summer suit!” - Peggy Cheng, VC class of 1993
