When Jingshu and Xingyuan decided to get married, they wanted to come to Florida from China to plan their special day. They wanted to have the time-honored traditions from China.
They started their wedding day having a traditional wedding ceremony. Jingshu looked beautiful in her wedding dress selected by Xingyuan.
There was a red carpet brought from China for the bride to walk on as she stepped out of her limousine. The red color represents a good future in China. In the Chinese tradition, the groom taking the bride from bride’s house on a red carpet will be good luck for the new couple on their wedding day. When the bride walked out of the limousine this started the tradition of the red carpet for this day.
The red carpet was also placed at the ceremony site where the bride and groom were to be married. The ceremony was translated by the best man in to Chinese. The couple’s ceremony included traditions such as lighting of the unity candle and warming of the rings.
Now that the ceremony was done, it was time for some romantic pictures in downtown celebration and on the golf course as they watched the sunset.
The happy couple returned to Celebration Golf to admire their reception decor and preapre for the fun.
After the ceremony, the bride changed in to her traditional red dress so that they can have their tea ceremony. This is the first time that the bride addresses the groom’s parents as mom and dad and the same for the groom. The tradition is that the bride serves a special blend of Chinese tea to his mother and father and the groom serves it to her mother and father. They bow at their feet as a sign of respect because they are the elders that should be respected and sought after for advice.
The bride then changed in to her party dress to enjoy the evening reception. After dinner there were many toasts with traditional wine brought from China. This was followed by the cutting of the cake. They followed the time honored tradition that they will respect each other’s faces and feed each other without smashing the cake.
The happy couple enjoyed Karaoke all night with dancing. Look at the smiles on this group of folks, enjoying the best day of this couple’s lives. There was not a language barrier here to help share in this couples wedding day. A great time was had by all…..
The night ended with Karaoke by the 3-year-old flower girl singing Let It Go from teh movie Frozen!
