To many, the wedding day is described as blissful and unforgettable. We agree wholeheartedly.
Our wedding celebration was done in three parts: The traditional tea ceremony, the Holy matrimony, and the evening reception.
The Traditional Tea Ceremony
The traditional tea ceremony is not complete without bridal door games. Am I right?
Though Mike and I are Christians, we decided that we should go through the Chinese tradition where the groomsmen have to go through tasks and challenges carried out by the bridesmaids before the groom is allowed to enter the house to “receive” the bride. This gauntlet can consist of all kinds of embarrassing and physically demanding activities. Sounds F-U-N?

The Holy Matrimony
Matrimony is a holy sacrament, officiated by a priest, uniting a man to a woman. Mike and I very much believe in the marriage which is ordained by God for the lifelong relationship between husband and wife. The holy matrimony affirms (or perhaps transcends) the secular status of civil marriage.

The Evening Reception
And you didn’t guess it wrongly. We did all these in one day!
