Ruby & Daniel {Wedding}

Ruby and Daniel's wedding was unlike any other I have had the pleasure to experience before.
The day was filled with many traditional ceremonies and a lot of love. 
There were Vietnamese, Catholic, and Chinese ceremonies throughout the day,
all of which were concluded with a HUGE party!
They first held the Vietnamese Ceremony at home where many gifts were presented
and the Groom received his Bride.  Ruby looked stunning in her Ao dai.
They then held their Catholic Ceremony in Washington, D.C. at the Shrine of the Sacred Heart.
The Chinese Tea Ceremony was rich with history and meaning as well.
Each of the Groom's elders was formally served tea by the newlyweds,
they then receive lucky red envelopes stuffed with money or jewlery,
along with a few words of encouragment and well wishes.
Lastly, their Reception was held at Fortune Chinese Seafood Restaurant in Falls Church, VA.
The guests were served an incredible multi-course seafood meal
(courses were still being served when I left at 11:00 p.m.!)  and danced the evening away.
All of the guests loved watching their proposal video! 
They're both teachers and he surprised her at work, it was the most incredibly romantic video.
Of course, I loved seeing their engagement photos incorporated into the Reception area.
One VERY happy couple!
The dance floor was PACKED all night long - Electra Entertainment did a fantastic job
Congratulaions Ruby and Daniel!
Thank you again, I had an incredible time documenting your day.
