Crystal and Jason’s wedding was a Pasadena party. The couple celebrated their wedding for two Saturdays in March. On March 1, 2020, the couple honored their ancestors and elders by having a traditional tea ceremony at the bride’s home. A week later, they did their western ceremony and reception in Pasadena, CA. They still infused their Cambodian heritage by having Apsara Dancers perform during the reception.
From the bride: “Our wedding was a beautiful blend of three cultures. We wanted to embrace both our Chinese and Cambodian worlds with a modern twist. The color theme was a spring palette of mauve, ivory, and gold. We decided to split our wedding into two separate days which would have been over 14 hours long. A traditional Cambodian wedding is also 3 days long. We planned our traditional Chinese tea ceremony on March 1st and the western ceremony and reception incorporating a Cambodian Blessing Dance the following weekend on March 7th. The Blessing Dance is a very popular dance in the modern world. The Blessing Dance is performed to bless the bride and groom to live happily together as husband and wife. The dancers depict as angels descending from heaven, gracefully casting flowers to the bride and groom to give blessings for good health, love & prosperity.”
Their Pasadena party was decorated with their color palette along with the special sentiments they wanted to include. The couple had tall and short vases filled with flowers throughout the tables. Lots of gold accents. A beautiful arch and sweetheart table with staggered floating candles.
