Ah! This beautiful American-Chinese wedding offered so many exciting details…a traditional red Chinese wedding dress, jade, tea ceremony, and pearls. The bride wore the red gown for the traditional tea ceremony and then had a stunning wardrobe change into her traditional white gown. The fusion of both cultures was unique and breath-taking!
Once upon a time I spent a few months living in Hefei, China. I absolutely loved every second that I spent there. The culture, people, traditions, fashion, food…everything was amazing! I miss it all!
During my wedding consultation with B&A, I was extremely excited to photograph their multi-cultural wedding day. The groom’s father came to America from China. The wedding traditions from China were a very important aspect of the couple’s big day. The bride’s stunning red traditional Chinese wedding gown swayed and complimented the jade hair jewels in her glowing hair. I loved being able to participate, in a journalistic way, during the tea ceremony. You could see and feel the respect and honor the bride and groom had for their parents.
As a wedding photographer, I am blessed to observe many cultural traditions during wedding ceremonies and receptions. I absolutely love learning about other cultures and how they join in matrimony.
