East meets West on a gorgeous summer day in June with a celebration two different families coming together as one. Jennifer and Brian were united in marriage at The Sheraton Hotel LaGuardia in Flushing, New York. The wedding was a modern twist on a traditional Chinese banquet. On a packed wedding day, we were able to take photos at Citi Field as well as Astoria Park.
After the American ceremony, the bride and groom had a traditional chinese tea ceremony. The tea ceremony shows respect for the family, and the couple serves tea to each side of the family. Jennifer and Brian surprised their guests with lion dancers during the dinner reception. Lion or dragon dancers are an expression of joy, celebration, and happiness.
