Beautiful Chinese – Indian Wedding in toronto
After completing a project together in an English class at University, Ping and Chris stayed in contact through MSN messenger – and the chat history still exists to prove it! They chatted online throughout the summer and in the early fall, Ping finally gave Chris her phone number. Even then, it still took a week and some liquid courage for Chris to make the first phone call.
Fast-forward almost 8 years and their thirst for exploration has given them some amazing adventures together. They have eaten their way through Spain, rappelled down waterfalls in Costa Rica, and climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Every summer, they go portaging deep into the woods and they regularly exchange a few punches in their Krav Maga training sessions. In 2012, Chris proposed to Ping while they were on a Serengeti Safari in Tanzania. It was a fabulous surprised, when he popped the question while they admired the sea of stars in the sky at night.
With their love of camping and adventure, incorporating the outdoors into their rustic and classic wedding was a must. They even paddled a canoe down the Humber River as part of their engagement shoot. Each table at the reception was named after a city they visited and beeswax candles filled the air with a light and sweet aroma. To honour their heritage – they hired festive Chinese Lion Dancers for entertainment and included the Tea Pouring Ceremony at the wedding. Chris’s Indian-Chinese Guyanese background was celebrated with a Dig Dutty ceremony a few days before the wedding, complete with tassa drums, henna, and dancing that went late into the night. When given a choice between pie or cake, pie would win any day – so for their wedding dessert, they used pies from their favourite pie shop in Kensington market.
Great food, dancing, and Chris’ hand-made camping Lego diorama were favorites among the guests, at this fun-filled wedding. See beautiful pictures of this wedding below:
