Michelle & Tony: Paint the Town Red in New York City

When you see red, red, and more red, you know what that means... Chinese wedding!  We're so excited to share with you some more artistic stylings of Jen Huang who photographed this metro-traditional Chinese wedding in New York City.  Michelle and Tony shared an intimate marriage ceremony first at City Hall to make it official and then transformed the day into a traditional Chinese wedding celebration.  Michelle changed into a bright red Cheongsam dress for the Chinese tea ceremony.  The couple offer tea to the elders in the family and are given red envelope gifts and words of wisdom in exchange.  In the evening, family and friends celebrate the nuptials with a traditional Chinese banquet with lots of food and lots of toasts! Cheers!

  3. Very cool NYC wedding. I love how they are able to preserve ancient Chinese customs, even in the big city of this modern age. Love all the lucky red!
