Chinese weddings like American weddings are often elaborate affairs with many guests and plenty of food! Chinese weddings also typically feature a tea ceremony where the bride and groom kneel on pillows and serve tea to their parents as a show of respect. In return they receive red envelopes with money or jewelry. The color Red symbolizes good luck and happiness so our bride changed into a beautiful red silk Chinese dress also called a Cheongsam . This stunning spring day at Lake Oak Meadows our couple enjoyed more than just the color red, they had every color of the rainbow with the flowers, their beautifully dressed family and friends and old world traditions surrounding them.
