Intimate Wedding in Stunning Glass Chapel - Wayfarers Chapel
If you're on the hunt for a truly unique venue (and one that will give you all the outdoor vibes, while keeping things indoors)—feast your eyes on Wayfarers Chapel, a.k.a. "The Glass Church". Incredible right? It was the most stunning scene for this intimate wedding photographed by Fine Art Curation member Senya Studio, followed by a restaurant reception with friends and family. Can I just say that this bride and groom also deserve some kind of wedding planning medal for pulling off a day in two parts? Beginning with a traditional Chinese tea ceremony followed by a western celebration beneath the glass chapel, they made a multicultural wedding look effortless as can be.
Chinese Tea Ceremony
The Chinese Tea ceremony is a pre-wedding celebration that is the most sacred ritual of Chinese nuptials. It serves as the bride's symbolic introduction to the groom's family. While the exact presentation can vary, the ceremony revolves around the serving of tea to both sets of families as a way of showing their acceptance of the marriage.
A complete tea set represents harmony and togetherness. Traditionally, the tea set was part of the bride's dowry and became something she'd save for her own daughter's ceremony one day. Sweet tea itself is believed to bring happiness to the couple and to help foster good relations between the bride and the groom's parents. Legend has it that if you place lotus seeds and two red dates in the teapot, children will come into the marriage early on and ensure a lifetime of happiness.
