For Emily and Yeung, we kicked off the day with a few Chinese traditions. Emily was tucked away in their new house with her close friends and family. Yeung and his boys arrived to "break in" and get to his bride. And they came bearing the flowers. Very nice!

From the inside, I could catch glimpses of the groomsmen as they tried to negotiate their way in.

And I was able to spend a little time with Emily, as she observed the boys’ efforts from above.

And also capture a few details, such as the shoes she wore with her Xi-pao.

Eventually the boys were allowed inside. Yeung wasted no time; he jumped over the barricade on the stairs and rushed towards his bride with flowers in hand.

Emily greeted Yeung with smiles and the two of them joined their guests downstairs for the traditional tea ceremony. It was followed by a few portraits. Here, a silhouette of our bride and groom.

It was then time to head to the hotel where they would host their Western ceremony. Emily had a room where she could change into her white wedding dress.

Her girls helped get her into her ballgown.


Love that smile.

Yeung and his groomsmen also had some touching up to do.

As soon as everyone was ready, they prepared for the ceremony to begin. Yeung waited at the end of the aisle and the guests peered anxiously towards the door for Emily’s entrance.

I leave you with that little cliff hanger. More to come soon from the ceremony, portraits and their Chinese banquet.
