Zeyu and Michael are the model of an international love story. So when they married they wanted to incorporate pieces of Zeyu’s Chinese heritage. The couple hosted a traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony the morning of their wedding. It was held at the Fort Worth Club where they would host their wedding reception later that day.
The Chinese Tea Ceremony is a ritual marking the formal meeting of the parents of the bride and groom. It is also a way the couple can show respect to their parents. During the ceremony, the newlyweds kneel in front of their parents and serve them tea. The parents then give their blessings via words and gifts in red envelopes.
Here are a few favorites from Zeyu and Michaels tea ceremony.
