    This was the bride and groom's third wedding celebration attended primarily by friends (about 60 guests) since they had a wedding in their home country China as well as at Seattle's city court. At this wedding a husband and wife flamenco team sang and danced for the guests, the bride and groom sang to each other in Chinese, the groom sang to his wife, and a trio of friends played music (guitar, violin, piano) at the reception. They specifically wanted a simple, natural, relaxed and romantic wedding where everyone would enjoy themselves and the Pacific Northwest. They added sweet touches such as a chalkboard sign that encouraged guests to write onto a stone a single word describing the bride or groom and the stone would be placed into a jar. Plus they asked guests to sign a map as the guestbook log.

    Our Love Story

    Jinai (groom) and Qianqian (bride) had three weddings after knowing each other for more than 2 years. They were online lovers at the beginning when Qianqian was studying in Scotland and Jinai was working in NYC. They're both from China and loved each other from afar. After Qianqian completed graduate school in Britain she moved back to China to begin working. Jinai meanwhile had spent 2 years in NYC studying and the past 3 years in Seattle for work. They got married at Seattle's city court but really wanted to hold ceremonies with families and friends as they entered this new life stage together. So they flew to China and married there, had a week long honeymoon in Tahiti and immediately returned to Seattle and married at Cama Beach State park.

    Do-It-Yourself

    The bride and groom sang to each other in front of all of the guests and the groom, accompanied by a guest playing acoustic guitar, sang to his bride. It was really fun and interesting to see a couple use a world map as their guestbook.
