We got to sit at the best table- full of friends. Uncle Al made colouring books for all of the kids.
Matthew looking sharp in his suit and giving me his signature serious face
Uncle Al & Auntie Gina
Polly and Simon
Travis and I
The happy couple came out dressed in traditional Chinese outfits
The lion dancers came to entertain us, it was awesome!
Then Al got a chance to try it out
Tyler and Carol did a great job as the MCs. As requested Al & Gina didn't want people clinking their glasses to get them to kiss, instead people had to balance on a board- a nod to Gina's kick ass boarding skills. The longer they balanced the longer the kiss. Kevin was giving Tyler a hand while he demonstrated for everyone.
Gina is Korean so in honor of her family they had a traditional Korean ceremony.
Here they sit with Allan's parents and listen to advice on marriage
Gina and Al have a blanket where they have to catch the figgs and dates that Al's parents throw at them. This symbolizes the number and gender of children they will have
Gina & Al with Gina's Father
Allan had to carry his Mother around, showing that he will care for her as she ages.
For fun Al's father wanted to be carried too!
Now its Gina's turn
This was such a beautiful wedding. I loved seeing all of the traditions incorporated into the day. It was so special and a whole lot of fun!
