Wedding Ceremony & Dinner - July 15, 2006
Comments from Jennifer:
We are new to Hong Kong, and we were not really aware
that so many couples have their weddings at a marriage registry. We made
the decision to hire a civil celebrant because we prefer a more natural
environment. We chose the weekend of July 15 because it was the five
year anniversary of when we met in Washington, DC. We were very happy
our civil celebrant, Vera Lam, was so willing to be flexible and take
the ferry to Lamma for our wedding. It was a unique experience for us,
and hopefully for our guests as well.
Comments from Steve:
It was a special day for us, and we were very happy
to celebrate our new lives together with family and friends. Thanks
to Tim and Jessica, Tiffany and Dave, and Normandy and Reuben. We
tried to make it a Lamma-esque wedding. Thanks also to the
Waterfront Restaurant and Hotel, and to our photographer,
Lamma-Gung. We bought our decorations on Lamma, and decided to
celebrate our wedding and being in Hong Kong by wearing the
traditional Chinese clothes.
As for the other locals, you could also say that we
all appreciated the heartfelt wedding advice from the gentleman
named Dave, when he said don't fight over the little things that
you're not going to remember what the fight was about anyway. And
the younger English guy, whose name I can't recall, he got things
started by buying me a tequila shot at 5 pm, an hour before the
wedding! Much appreciated.
