Kevin and Ellen’s Traditional Chinese Wedding in New Jersey

Back in August, I had the chance to do an engagement shoot for Ellen and Kevin, even though they had been engaged for some time. I flew back to New Jersey to shoot their Traditional Chinese wedding. I’ll save the cultural details for another day, but suffice it to say, Chinese weddings are loaded with symbolism, gift giving, and family. Tea is served to family and friends, colors and gifts all have meanings, and the banquet is really just an excuse to have a huge party with lots of food and games :). Lucky for the two of them, Ellen’s Godmother (bless her heart) helped them navigate through the rituals (“Two hands!!”). And naturally, having grown up by the shore, they were drawn back to the ocean for pictures :). Congrats, Ellen and Kevin! You guys were a blast!

You can take a look at their beach engagement session as well!

I love the colors & how you captured everything. What was that tea thing they were doing?

That’s the tea ceremony part. The bride and groom served tea to their parents and elders, as well as other family members who gave them gifts (in the form of red envelopes).
