Quynh + Alex's Wedding flowers contin. =)
rose, peach colored
We only were able to stay for an hour to set up and wait for guests. Lo's mom wanted to go to a family buffet so we left early for her. Turned out, she changed her mind and was not happy at us for the time constraints. So, for Thanksgiving, Lo and I had our dinner at Jack in the Box. We were both wearing formal clothing too.
Lo and I attended their ceremony at church in the morning. It was a bit awkward for us because neither of us are religious. However, it was fun and insightful. The Father made a very good point and that stuck with me. He said there are two words that makes a marriage work and made everyone in the wedding party answer. No one got it right. He then told us all to just go home (kidding of course). The answer was: For/With. He explained that for a marriage to work, one must live FOR the other and live WITH (alongside) them. One can say they love the other, but if you still continue to live for yourself, it won't work for long. When one marries another, one is saying that their life has no meaning without the other. The same perspective should be the same for the other person.
Quynh was so beautiful in her white wedding dress! SO BEAUTIFUL! =) Alex was also dashing too! I wished she wore that at the reception as well as her ao dai! Asian wedding customs intends for brides to change dresses multiple times during the reception dinner. Ah well.
I hope Quynh and Alex had a great time! =) I wished Lo's mom would have told us before we left that she changed her mind.. Hope Quynh would post the the pictures soon! I need to steal the ones that include Lo and myself for our next scrapbook. =)
