It has been a little while since I’ve photographed a sacramento Chinese wedding, but it is always nice to see everyone! The community is intertwined and most of my brides/grooms are connected in some way, which makes it so much fun to see them again at the reception! Mi and Wa had a great day with family all around, lots of laughter, hugs, and dancing into the evening at Happy Garden Restaurant. Here are some of my favorites from the day..(there’s going to be more than usual since it was a 16 hour wedding):
Mi started the day in a traditional Chinese dress.. the detail was beautiful!!
The guys have to accept challenges to get into the door of the Bride’s parents home. The guys got tired of waiting… Wa wanted his woman!!
One more challenge to go… sing your bride a song!! Since Wa doesnt sing or play guitar, this was pretty much hilarious.
During the Tea Ceremony, the bride and groom receive jewelry and gifts from the elders in their family. Kinda makes me wish I had a Tea ceremony at my wedding!
The men and women played games during the day, some for fun, some for cold, hard cashola.
The reception was held at Happy Garden in South Sacramento. Happy Garden Wedding photos look even better now that they have remodeled. I love this picture of them being introduced!
Thanks for inviting me to be a part of your wedding day! You know I just did it for the food (= Seriously though, you guys are wonderful, and I look forward to seeing you at the next Sacramento Chinese Wedding as Mr. and Mrs Ngu!
