Helene & Carlo's wedding at St. Joan of Arc, and reception at The Williamsburg Lodge were full of cultural traditions.
During the ceremony they incorporated the Filipino traditions of cord, veil, candle and Arrhea (coins) as well as Taiwanese customs. The couple surprised guests with a lion dance, and made paper cranes which hung from trees.
They changed into traditional garb for their first dance and guests received chopsticks as wedding favors. It was fantastic and I had looked forward to it for a very long time. I will share images from this amazing event as soon as I receive them. My photos would not do it justice.
