Ok! So…here is part two to this amazingly fabulous Chinese American Wedding! Complete with Chinese Tea Ceremony and Dragon Lion Dance! It was incredible. I think I shed a tear when the drums rang out.
This was the first Chinese Tea Ceremony I have ever photographed and it was so lovely. Their elders came to the front and the bride and groom offered them tea, they took a sip and have them a blessing. What a cool way to honor the special people in your life.
This is one of my favorite images of the whole wedding! Because they had the ceremony in the center of a circle of guests, I was able to stand behind the groom. This is an angle that I don’t often get because usually it would be really distracting in a traditional style ceremony. What a treat!

There are just too many pictures in from this wedding for just one blog post! When the bride has 3 dress changes, complete with new shoes, the girl deserves more than just one blog post! I love that Will and Tina incorporated some Chinese traditions, as well as having a Western Style Ceremony. It was like the best of all of their worlds.
All of the wedding day events took place at the ever modern and gorgeous. We would have even needed to leave the hotel if the weather hadn’t been so beautiful. There are just so many places to take amazing pictures. I was very impressed! It had so much light and great lines.
In the program when their guests got to their seats, they were surprised when they opened their programs that told them that Will and Tina had been all ready married on a date that was to bring them good luck. So this was their 2nd chance to commit themselves to each other.
I loved that we were able to do their first look on the Pool Deck of the Four Seasons in Seattle! It was such a beautiful day…it made me so happy! It was perfect!
When my sister in law was getting married about 4 years ago, my mother in law found this amazing venue….Thornewood Castle. It was too far too have her wedding there, but it was amazing. She showed me the website and I was instantly in love! I mean, what girl doesn’t love a castle! Who knew we even had a castle in the Northwest?? I didn’t!
Mistie and Josh’s wedding was perfect there. It was held in the Secret walled garden, that is still much like it was when it was created. I loved the history and the glamour that Thornewood Castle provides! It was so fabulous!
When I walked in and saw this wedding gown, I thought…This wedding gown needs more sparkle!
This whole stair case was taken out of an English Manor and brought to Thornewood Castle to have the house built around it! It thought it was so gorgeous.
I thought this was such a cool idea! A new take on the guest book….a signed guitar! I loved that they will remember how special it was to have all of their family and friends around them on their wedding day! Better yet…hang it on the wall in a living room…and enjoy it everyday.
