When Melle + Jeff inquired with me, I felt an instant connection with them. I knew we would be a great fit for each other and eventually become friends! M+J told me they wanted to have two ceremonies, one being a traditional Chinese tea ceremony. They decided to play a traditional Chinese wedding game called crash the gate. This is where the groom must pass a certain amount of tests to claim his bride and be worthy! After the second ceremony, M+J celebrated with their family out front of their house with a Lion Dance. My favorite part was M+J's reactions to the lions eating the lettuce! I felt so honored to be able to experience all of these special traditions with them and be able to document everyone's emotions!
M+J decided to use a big portion of their photography coverage for bride and groom portraits at Princess Point and then invited their immediate family to join them for group photos!
This entire wedding day turned out so beautifully. Melle + Jeff truly put all of their efforts into making a small and intimate wedding at their home become something so magical and memorable for their future.
