April 4, 2008- The Big Day for Wendy and Wesley

9:30 am
El Cerrito

Wesley attempts to retrieve his bride. He is faced with several grueling tasks which he and his groomsmen must perform in order to continue forward. They have to spell out "I love Wendy" by eating away at slices of white bread. They must brush their teeth with wasabi. The must correctly answer several questions on a test. The must do one-armed push-ups. They have shapes drawn on their faces with make-up. I have to say the women enjoy this part immensely. And to be honest, so did I. 🙂

Ultimately, after a red envelope changes hands, Wesley and his compadres achieve their goal. They get Wendy.

The tea ceremony is a wonderful opportunity for Wendy and Wesley to honor their elders and for their elders to wish for them to have a big family!
