Tracey and Nathan met in Singapore, when she was an anchor for CNBC Asia and he was with Credit Suisse. He had a car—a relative rarity in Singapore because of exorbitant license fees—and a friend joked that he could be her chauffeur. “He was younger than me, but between the car and the British accent, I thought, Well, I can at least go for a ride,” Tracey says.
Tracey Chang and Nate Zhang knew their wedding had to reflect their Chinese-Western heritage. The bride, a New Yorker, and the groom, a Briton, were both raised by Chinese parents, and the couple has made Beijing and Hong Kong their home. “I loved putting Chinese culture into a western-style wedding,” Tracey says.
The Ritz-Carlton, Tianjin, in the bride’s hometown, was happy to do just that. The bilingual CCTV anchor had friends coming from the States, and the groom, a financier, had a number of guests arriving from the United Kingdom. “We wanted them to learn about Chinese culture,” Tracey says. “With The Ritz-Carlton being such a global brand—that’s part of what I appreciate about them—it was the perfect place for our wedding.”
