China Once, China Twice

What I had never planned to do

The Scrap-Book For China, Chapter 8, More On The Wedding Ceremony January 27, 2012

I had made an off-hand comment to Sam once “I will be there… long as I get to dance with my son at his wedding.”   Ball room dancing at weddings, as we know it in the USA, is not traditional in a Chinese wedding.  That USA tradition, so important to me, was included in their ceremony.

The parents do play a role in the ceremony.  I was limited to 100 scrap-book pages though, I’ll throw some miscellaneous pictures into a post at the end.
