Helen & DJ Tea Ceremony

Good afternoon everybody! Helen & DJ had their big wedding day yesterday. It was an absolute joyus day and I wanted to share all the pictures with you! Obviously there are TONS. So today, I'll start off with the Tea Ceremony Pictures.

In case you didn't know what a Tea Ceremony is...

Tea Ceremony is an official ritual to introduce the newlyweds to each other's family, and it's a way for newlyweds to show respect and appreciation to their parents. The newlyweds kneel in front of their parents, serving tea to both side of parents, as well as elder close relatives. Parents give their words of blessing and gifts to the newlyweds. During tea presentation, a "Good Luck Woman" would say auspicious phrases to bless the newlyweds and the parents. These auspicious words of blessing are almost a lost art nowadays, that are designed to bless and amuse the family and make the occasion filled with fun and joy.

There are over 300 pictures from the wedding ceremony! I will have to really choose and pick which ones to post!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
