Snow + Aaron had a beautiful October wedding which started off with a Chinese ceremony. I arrived to a residential home, and Snow was getting ready for her wedding day along with her bridesmaids and family. The home was decorated with a variety of Chinese decorations to celebrate this portion of their day!
Snow’s traditional wedding dress came directly from China, and it was STUNNING!
Snow was hidden away, as Aaron would need to make it through a series of tests before he would be deemed “worthy” to see her! ;)
First Aaron and his groomsmen knocked on the door, and had to convince the bridesmaids and family that he could enter by offering many, many, MANY red envelopes! :)
Then Aaron had to face a series of questions from those who knew Snow best – from her shoe size to what her name looks like in Chinese! Snow’s mom was trying to be helpful in showing him the name while Snow’s father held her back! In the end, Aaron figured it out on his own :)
There was an orange-passing game…
Followed by a show of strength…
Then Aaron tasted and guessed foods blindfolded, to represent various stages of marriage.
Finally Aaron was deemed worthy enough to see his bride!
One last task! Aaron had to find Snow’s shoe in the room and put in on her foot. He succeeded, and off we went to their Chapel of Orange wedding!
Snow’s mother helped her get dressed, in a beautiful gown she handmade for Snow, while Aaron got ready with his groomsmen in a separate area. I LOVE the intricate and delicate feel of Snow’s dress! So perfect for her!
The Chapel of Orange is a gorgeous setting for a ceremony – so many touching moments took place as Aaron and Snow exchanged vows!
And then back to the reception! Snow and Aaron’s friends and family had an amazing time dancing, toasting and celebrating with the happy couple!
Congratulations, Snow + Aaron!
