Prior to Joy & Sean’s wedding ceremony, their families joined them for a traditional tea ceremony. There were many smiles and lots of laughter as both families celebrated Joy and Sean’s special day. The ceremony’s hostess was Joy’s Aunt who helped serve tea to each family member. Her Aunt also brought her beautiful tea set for everyone to drink from. She explained that the decoration on the tea kettle symbolized a man on one side and a woman on the other. Joy’s niece and nephew’s also helped make the tea and even served tea to Joy and Sean.
Joy wore this gorgeous orange flower with feathers in her hair. Stunning!
The flower matched perfectly with her orange and green Cheongsam.
Joy’s Mom was served first, followed by Sean’s parents.
Joy & Sean served tea to each family member who in turn gave well wishes to both the Bride & Groom.
Each family member also presented red envelopes to the Bride & Groom filled with money. These envelopes are traditionally given as gifts during special occasions such as weddings. The color of the envelope symbolizes good luck.
