Tea Ceremony-Ethan & Xuan
“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage”. Lao Tzu
This was an amazingly beautiful ceremony! Full of traditions, ritual, family and color. The first part was the Vietnamese tea ceremony and the second part was a Cambodian ceremony to honor both sides of the family. I only had a very basic understanding of the ceremonies so of course just shot everything. The wedding guests brought in trays of food and gifts in sets of two. During the ceremony the couple is presented with six gifts. The couple serves tea to their families and receiving blessingsand gifts from them. In Between the two ceremonies everyone eats while the wedding party changes. And what girl wouldn’t love to have 3 different dresses! Being part of this was incredible!
