Natalie & Stefan’s wedding day started out at Natalie’s parent’s house. Many friends and relatives gathered to help Natalie get ready for her special day. All of the girls including Natalie were dressed in gorgeous red dresses. Keeping with Chinese tradition the guys had to play a series of games and were put to the test in order to enter the house. Offerings of gum, money, singing and taking a shot of a strange drink were just a few of the tasks the guys endured (I’m pretty sure I saw tabasco sauce on the table…lol). After the the men were allowed into the home Natalie & Stefan were seated for the tea ceremony. Red envelopes containing money for good luck were given to the couple, along with beautiful gold jewelry. Following the tea ceremony Natalie and Stefan had photos taken holding a photo from their parent’s weddings. I though this was such an adorable idea!
The ceremony and reception took place at Morgan Creek Golf Course in South Surrey. Natalie changed into her white gown prior to the next ceremony. Once their vows were sealed with a kiss, we headed to the always stunning White Rock Beach for twilight photos. The guests were treated to a special choreographed dance by the couple as they made their grand entrance into the reception room. I was very impressed! Thank you both for having me capture your special day
