Submitted by Sarah on Friday - December 16, 2016

Gorgeous couple, Daphne and Hubert, tied the knot on a gorgeous late-August day. With their traditional Chinese wedding tea ceremony, luxe golf club reception, and family and friends abounding—their day was full of very special and intimate moments. Rustic Wedding With A Traditional Chinese Wedding Tea Ceremony Many Chinese wedding traditions are still practiced in this modern day, and one of the most popular is the Chinese wedding tea ceremony. It's a special time to show respect to the bride and groom's elders and express gratitude for looking after them until the wedding day. Not only was Daphne's traditional red dress stunning for their tea ceremony ... but she changed into a simple and stunning lace wedding dress for the remainder of the day.

He was in medical school and she was working on her PhD. They each played badminton on the side to battle stress ... and it turns out it was also a game changer for their future when they met. It was during a romantic weekend getaway at a bed and breakfast near Lancaster when Hubert proposed. After a nice walk along a path, he smuggled the hand into her hand while walking. {I love simple and subtle proposals!} Rustic Wedding With A Traditional Chinese Wedding Tea Ceremony Rustic Wedding With A Traditional Chinese Wedding Tea Ceremony Rustic Wedding With A Traditional Chinese Wedding Tea Ceremony Rustic Wedding With A Traditional Chinese Wedding Tea Ceremony Their first look "The series of photos during the first look were great.  It really showed a pure candid reaction for us both!"

I had an idea that I wanted the dress to just be simple and beautiful. And the red dress for the tea ceremony was quite traditional without too much flair, since I wasn't looking for something too extravagant."
