When I think back to Pamela and Albert’s wedding this summer, I am reminded of the music, and the food. But for this entry I think I will focus on the music. It was a lyrical day from beginning to end. And the music was always accompanied by intense emotion, both spiritual and later humorous.

When last I wrote, the bride and groom were just about to walk down the aisle. Here I begin with some of the music from their ceremony at the Boston Chinese Evangelical Church in Newton.

This little one was humming to her own tune.

And our bride and groom with heartfelt song.

One of their friends lead the group.

After the ceremony, we had a few minutes for portraits and stopped by Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts. The MFA has some really lovely architectural elements.

Then off to Veronique for the reception. Food is a huge part of their lives, so Pamela and Albert treated their guests to a five course meal.

One of the most fun Chinese customs is for the bride to change dresses during the evening. Of course this meant more getting ready photographs for me.

Pamela looked lovely in each and everyone.

Then back in the reception, as the couple toasted their friends, they were serenaded. Here’s their reaction to the group.

And ending with the boys singing their hearts out!
