Yay! I’ve got Kelly & Glen’s wedding photos! WOooohooo! Gavin Holt, the photographer, took some amazing photos. I highly recommend him! Thanks Kel for the awesome review on Project Wedding.

If you’re planning a Chinese American wedding, first learn about some of the chinese wedding traditions, then hit up  Chinese Weddings by the Knot.
