It’s so exciting to share pictures from Sabrina and Thompson’s Coronado Chinese tea ceremony at the Hotel Del!
A traditional Chinese tea ceremony is one of the most significant events at a Chinese wedding. The ceremony is a way for the young couple to show respect and gratitude to both sets of parents for all their years of guidance.
In the ceremony, the bride and groom kneel before two chairs. As participants sit in the chairs, the bride and groom serve them tea. In turn, each participant presents a gift to the bride and groom.
For their Coronado Chinese tea ceremony, Sabrina wears her “cheongsam”, an ankle-length red dress with a Mandarin collar that’s commonly worn by the bride in her Chinese tea ceremony. Tea is served from a gorgeous tea set with a traditional Chinese floral pattern.
