Though it’s fun to create flowers for every wedding, it’s always so nice when we get the chance to work with Brides and Grooms that may be from a different culture. When I came across these wedding photos from a Chinese American wedding that we did awhile ago, I thought it would be a fun wedding to share with you. I just love the many pops of red color throughout that signify love, joy and prosperity in the Chinese wedding tradition .
The Ceremony took place over at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in Cambridge….love the view!
The flower girl and ring bearer…cute as a button
The bridesmaids carried…gorgeous cymbidium orchids (flowers by Cedar Grove Gardens)
The Chinese wedding tradition of the red umbrella is held by a female elder called the “good luck woman”. The tradition translates to “raise the bark, spread the leaves”. The red umbrella protects the bride from evil spirit, and the rice and beans thrown towards the bride are to attract the attention of the gold chicken.
