Happy Chinese New Year! Did you know that 2017 is a Fire Rooster Year. According to Chinese astrology, each year is associated with one of five elements as well as an animal, this year is a fire year, the last Fire Rooster Year was 1957.
See how one of our favorite couple’s celebrated their wedding and the Chinese New Year all at once.
The couple knew that we would not be able to tell everyone just how special they were, so they decided to write love notes to each of their guests. They put the notes in red envelopes embellished with a traditional Chinese symbol for “double happiness” hand-stamped in gold ink.
As a fun way to welcome their guests to the reception, the couple performed a traditional Lion Dance, which also served as a welcome to the New Year, complete with three elaborate colored lions.
