mary + ryan :: tea ceremony & wedding photography by silverbox

PhotobucketMary and Ryan's wedding day was GRAND! Wedding guests were treated to hot tea, roast pig, a six-course reception menu, a pair of dragons, paper umbrellas and so much more during the dawn-to-post-dusk GLORIOUS love-filled wedding day festivities. Two things in particular made big impressions on us: Mary and Ryan's commitment to and love for their families AND the fantastic fusion of Filipino and Vietnamese traditions throughout the day. The tea ceremony (which began with Ryan's extended family parading to Mary's family home bearing gifts that included that roast pig) was especially wonderful!

Below are just a few pictures, but the day was so full that no single blog post could do it justice. You've got to see mary + ryan's wedding day slideshow to really get a feel for their day. And even the slideshow doesn't show it all. To see ALL their pictures, click here.

And mary + ryan chose some very talented kansas city wedding vendors. here are a few of the vendors who helped make mary + ryan's wedding wonderful: ceremony venue ~ Our Lady of Perpetual Help Redemptorist Church reception venue & catering ~ Deer Creek Golf Club wedding coordinator ~ Annie Anderson video ~ Alea Lovely hair & make-up ~ Annelene Paramour flowers ~ Clara's Flowers cake ~ Andre's Confiserie Suisse
