Shuwen + Teng
Waterside Restaurant, New Jersey
Provided the weather is on your side, an outdoor wedding ceremony is always an amazing choice. And if the backdrop happens to be the breathtaking NYC skyline, then your ceremony photos are going to look bridal-magazine-cover perfect.
With the help of family and friends, Shuwen and Teng got ready in their home, which was down the street from their wedding. And when you get ready at home, there are so many opportunities for little details that are meaningful to the relationship. For example, the Winnie the Pooh cup Shuwen was sipping while doing her makeup was the first gift she received from Teng. Shuwen and Teng chose to swear eternal love to one another at Waterside Restaurant on the beautiful Hudson River overlooking the Big Apple’s majestic skyscrapers, offering their guests a postcard-like panorama throughout the event.
Their wedding had many rituals, such as the ancient tea ceremony during the reception – where the blushing bride traditionally wears a red gown - and many fun games that kept the guests entertained.
Thank you Shuwen and Teng for sharing your day with me. You can view some of my favorite photos from their wedding at Waterside Restaurant above.
