I’ve shot a number of couples that have long distance relationships. Here’s another one, Nathan’s about 6’3″ and Michelle’s about 5’4″. That’s a long distance. But that doesn’t keep this beautiful couple from being fun, romantic, lovable, and of course awesome.

This wedding started out with a traditional tea ceremony, making it the second one I’ve photographed. Definitely very interesting. My second photographer Kristen was thrilled to witness this because she’s never seen anything like this. Her energy rubbed off on me a little bit. I was getting really excited, but since it was pretty different than the last one I was pretty confused. My face was kinda blank, not knowing what to expect. I looked over at Michelle and Nathan, and they had the same look. I asked Nathan what was supposed to be happening, and he said “I have no idea.” But it turned out to be a very smooth and pleasant tea ceremony.

For those who aren’t familiar with tea ceremonies, I’ll try to break it down for you according to how this one went. Groom has to ‘pay’ his way into the house of the bride (you’ll see Nathan with his red envelopes in the photo below.) Once the groom is in they have to burn some incense sticks and be blessed by a few individuals. Then the couple has to serve tea to the elders and the kids of the family as a sign of respect. In the process they receive gifts and more red envelopes as a (wedding?) gift. I feel like I should know this, since I’m Asian, but I don’t remember them teaching me this in Chinese class.

Anyways I present the photos!
