Getting Ready with the beautiful Bride

MyChau shared some special moments with her loved ones as she got ready to say "I do". Everyone looked amazing!

The Tea Ceremony (or Vu Quy)

A traditional Vietnamese tea ceremony (or Vu Quy) is held on the morning of the wedding day. The groom and his groomsmen visit the bride's home to offer gifts to the bride and her family. Some gifts offered include delicious food, liquor, and jewelry. The couple presents tea to both set of parents and the elders show their acceptance of the marriage by drinking the tea. The tea ceremony is important in Vietnamese culture because marriage is not only seen as a union of two people, but also the union of two families. Both MyChau and Jason's families were trilled to be uniting as one family.

A Catholic Church Wedding Ceremony
