I FRICKEN LOVE THIS COUPLE!!!
What can I tell you about this particular wedding day? It was just right. The venue was beautiful, the couple were rockstars, the bridal party gave us so much love, and the guests totally knew how to party.
We started out with the traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony at Stanley parents' house. Casey was dressed in a traditional Chinese dress and received nothing but compliments. Stanley looked very dapper in his suit, it fit him so well. Bride and groom gets down on both knees and present each and every one of their relative with tea. The relative then in return wish the couple well and gift them with either jewelry or red envelops (also known as lai see) or sometime both. Afterwards, Stan and Casey had to pour tea for those that were not married and under 18 years of age but not on their knees. The kids were then given red envelopes by the bride and groom. Lastly, Stan and Casey were to consume a bowl of noodles. Noodles represent longevity in the Chinese Culture.
Finally, to the last destination for the wedding, The Castlewood Country Club in Pleasanton, Ca. This venue was so beautiful, it has a golf course, a pool, a tennis court, and even a place for boce ball. The event coordinator for our day was Jessica and she was a great pleasure to work with.
The sun gave us enough light to enjoy the intimate union between the two lovebirds. The wedding ceremony was so beautiful, the couple cried and laughed. It was my first witnessing a bride holding onto his groom's hand while saying her vows and vice versa. Of course, I didn't cry but I did have to take a few steps back to distract myself from actually shedding a tear or two.
The rest of the night was history. From the amazing speeches presented by both the MOH and BM to the table to table games to the time Casey tricked everyone during her bouquet toss. Throughout the entire reception, you can just feel the love that everyone have for these two. It was beautiful. We are glad we were choose to be apart of such a beautiful day.
Stanley and Casey, we love you guys and we wish you two a lifetime of happiness and successes.
