A very Asian affair

This past Saturday I assisted my friend Paola of Just Chic Events. She was in need of a second assistant and I happily obliged.

Saturday’s wedding was a multicultural affair. T+J are of Chinese and Korean descent. They had several activities that honored their cultural backgrounds such as a Chinese Tea Ceremony and a Korean Pyebaek in addition to a Traditional Western Wedding Ceremony.

My assistance was only needed for the reception. The reception was held at a Chinese Banquet Hall/Restaurant in Cerritos. The venue was surprisingly elegant with tall ceilings and rich wood paneling. This wedding was small by Asian standards with 180 guests. However, it was enough to keep Paola, Lindsay (her other assistant), and me busy. Dinner service included a 10 course Chinese Wedding Banquet served family style on lazy susans. The dance floor was packed with T + J’s college friends and a few of their older relatives. All in all, it was a gorgeous event with many well-executed details.

I had fun working this event. Paola, if you need me again, don’t hesitate to call;)

Here are some of my pics.
