Murphy and Diana just got married last year. They held two weddings, one in Texas, Austin, the other in Chongqing, China. It took them several months to plan the first wedding, from renting the venue to choosing the flowers. They ended up with a gorgeous wedding. Exhausted but grateful, Murphy and Diana were expecting a similar wedding to celebrate with their families and friends at hometown.
However, it was hard to find vendors at second or third tier cities in China that provides family-style wedding services. The traditional Chinese weddings still dominate the market and Murphy and Diana had to compromise and follow the traditional rules and process. Like most couples did in China, they stood on the stage, laughed with the jokes, and initiated cheers to the unfamiliar guests of their parents.
