This weekend I attended a wedding. Again.

A couple of friends that I knew from UCLA and church were finally tying the knot. So I drove back up to LA. Again.

The morning was really hectic for sure… I went surfing in the early morning and then drove up to meet with a friend who recently moved out to Pasadena from England to attend Fuller Seminary and be super holy and stuff. After having lunch and dropping off my care package, which consisted mostly of “Welcome to fatty America” snacks, I drove over to Arcadia to attend the wedding. It was a really nice day…not too hot in the valley and a good day to take lots of pictures.

The wedding was located in a really nice church, Arcadia Presbyterian and the reception was held at a really nice Chinese restaurant. For those of you who have never been to an Asian wedding reception at an Asian restaurant, please see the following picture:

Chaos and happiness

It has been a long time since I attended a more traditional Asian wedding reception held at a big restaurant…and there are a few things to be aware of.

1. Loud. Crazy. Fun.
2. The super delicious ten course dinner.
3. Speeches? Forget it… too loud the entire time.
4. A lot too many people.

And because of the delicious dinner, I forgot to take a lot of pictures. Dang it! But the meal was awesome.

In the end, I got to see a lot of my old friends again. Jason and Sofa are a few years older and have always been great role models for me and the friends who are around my age. Jason has always been a great listener and someone who is eager to lend a hand or help in any way. Mr. Sofa (Yes, I call her Mr. Sofa and bow to her every time I see her out of fear and respect…and fear. Notice how I sat on her side during the ceremony…out of fear and respect…) has always been a mother figure to the guys in our college apartment and would slap (sometimes literally!) us around for acting out of line…which is another reason we bowed to her. But she was always concerned with how we were doing and was always asking about and following up on the little things going on in our lives…She is an extremely caring person and a great friend. And to see both of them finally get married was tons of fun…they are great for each other and you can tell they’re going to be amazing parents one day.

In the end we danced. Kind of. Because at traditional Asian weddings there is very little dancing. Unless it was a Filipino wedding… because they’re like the black Asians and actually know how to dance. Fact.

Just kidding. We had a blast!

Until the next wedding… Cheer!
