John & Chi Engagement Ceremony | New Orleans, LA Photographer

In our Vietnamese culture, it is a tradition for the man’s family to arrange a tea ceremony for him to propose to his bride to be. The families get together at the bride’s family home where the groom and his family arrive bringing gifts that include jewelry, cakes, betel leaves, areca nuts, fruit, wine and a whole roast pork. All of the gifts are presented on trays covered with red which symbolizes good luck and fortune.

Here’s a peek at John & Chi’s engagement ceremony this past Sunday. Good Luck to both of you !! ^_^
