Vivian and Matt’s gorgeous wedding sneak peek part II…
Vivian and Matt had a Traditional Tea Ceremony before the reception – here is what it is about:
To express thanks to your elders on one’s wedding day
In the traditional Chinese marriage ceremony, both the bride and groom kneel in front of their parents and serve them tea. That is the most devout way to express their gratitude. In front of their parents, it is a practice for the married couple to say, “Thank you for bringing us up. Now we are getting married. We owe it all to you.” The parents will usually drink a small portion of the tea and then give them a red envelope, which symbolizes good luck.
After the reception we toured the resort for some romantic night shots. I love the last one on the left!
We did day after photos around the resort because we had a lot more time to explore and not rush to be anywhere. We found a lot of cute little places for photo opts.
We also went to the Tulum Ruins for some photos. (just a side note: Even though we asked permission at the front they said we could take photos as long as it was not wedding photos – bride in wedding dress. Vivian wore a little white sundress which at some point the staff decided was a wedding dress. to make a long story short – do not wear a white dress if you want photos at the ruins.) Vivian bought a second dress to wear in the water for some photos – so romantic!
