Dan and Joy's Spring Wedding

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of traveling to Houston for my husband's cousin's wedding. It was an unexpectedly cold Spring day with temperatures in the 40's, but luckily everything was indoors and turned out just beautiful!
The five bridesmaids wore dresses all made from the same fabric but styled to fit their own tastes. I love this idea and the result was stunning!
The couple had their ceremony in the beautiful LDS temple and a ring ceremony at Champions Golf Club.
My favorite part of the wedding was the Chinese Tea Ceremony. The Tea Ceremony is traditional practice used to introduce the newlyweds to each other's family, and is a way for the couple to show respect and appreciation to their parents. The newlyweds bow 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 in a red envelope. It was so heartfelt and fun to watch. Fun fun times!
