Vietnamese Tea Ceremony

February 13, 2017

Wynn’s beautiful engagement ring combines the old and the new. The diamond is a family heirloom and the band and setting are new. It was absolutely perfect!

The ceremony began with the Bride’s family lined up to receive gifts from the Groom’s family. After the passing of the gifts, both families walked into the room with the altar where they lined up on either side divided by family. The Bride (who was kept in another room) was then escorted in by her mother. Next, the Groom’s Father gave a welcome speech. As a symbol of the joining of two families, two candles were lit simultaneously. At this point, Seth and Wynn joined hands and Seth gave Wynn a ring. Seth surprised the family by telling Wynn, “I love you” in Vietnamese. Then, they served tea to their parents together. This is significant for showing respect and appreciation to their family members and also a time where the family members share their well wishes and blessings for the couple’s marriage. Wynn’s mother wished them 100 years of happiness. A member of Wynn’s family was explaining the steps and significance to everyone who wasn’t familiar with the ceremony. Her traditional red gown, couldn’t put us more in the mood for Valentines Day!
