A Wedding Story in Shanghai

In my last week in Shanghai, I attended the wedding of a family friend.  It was a very interesting mix of western wedding customs with traditional Chinese elements.  Here are some of my favorite moments during the event.

I love the unguarded expressions of wonder and joy on everyone’s faces.

The maid of honor caught the bouquet and was quizzed by the emcee as to what kind of man she will marry.  She began by saying that someone half as good as the groom would do but decided half way that wasn’t enough, causing everyone to erupt into laughter.

And here, in place of the garter throw, the groom tossed some kind of leafy vegetable tied with a bright red ribbon to bring whoever catches it great wealth and fortune.  I wonder if she ate the vegetable later.
