Hometown Wedding for a Globe-trotting Couple

A bride and groom pose against a brick wall during their hometown wedding in Elk Grove, CA.

Nobody would accuse Tricia and Waison of being homebodies. They’re from California and Alberta, Canada, respectively, though it just so happens that their paths first crossed all the way over in China. And while technically it was work that took them there, they see now that God was conspiring to bring their hearts together. Their relationship bloomed during the course of a masterclass in long-distance dating and engagement. But when it came time to marry, they made arrangements for a hometown wedding—in Tricia’s hometown of Elk Grove, that is.

From the traditional Chinese pre-wedding tea ceremony, to a first look in a local park, to an outdoor ceremony at the church Tricia grew up at, here are some images from Tricia and Waison’s intimate, hometown wedding…

The best things take time. Tricia and Waison have poured plenty of time, coffee, Skype, and prayer into making their marriage one that will stand for a lifetime. And that’ll come in handy because these two anticipate plenty more adventures in their home overseas.

Tricia and Waison, it was an honor to serve you both on such a special hometown wedding. We can’t wait to hear what’s cooking in your future! Blessings on the journey to come!

    Just wanted to say really nice lighting against the brick wall. Really helps to spotlight the couple.

      Thanks so much, brother! I’m pleased with how that shot turned out… I captured it against the wall of a froyo shop I used to visit every week in my junior high years!
