Deb + Michael | Celebration
The celebration for Deb & Michael was beyond what I could have imagined with the grand 10-course feast to rich Jewish & Chinese traditions. The reception started with the traditional Chinese tea ceremony. The herbs & dried fruit in the tea symbolize a warm & sweet beginning of a new life. The couple kneels before their elders while tea is presented to one another with gifts & blessings exchanged. Next, the 10-course dinner with incredible food ranging from suckling pig, sautéed lobster to delicious braised abalone. The food, symbolic of long life & prosperity, truly blessed this couple. More games were played to entertain the guests & finally the dancing which included the very fun Jewish Hora. Deb & Michael have surrounded themselves with amazing family & friends (proof from the many toasts & great stories). It was one of those weddings you do not want to end. Thank you both for sharing your day with me. I am so lucky to know you two!
