Sarin and Non’s Wedding in South Seattle

Sarin and Non’s wedding day last summer brought together strong family ties, memories, and culture. Their eventful day began at their parent’s house in Des Moines, WA, where a traditional Cambodia ceremony was held to celebrate their marriage. As I showed up, it was noticeable that they were both very nervous and excited at the same time. It was encouraging to see how their family was able to calm their nerves, as relatives joked, provided snacks, and eased them both into the day. You’ll notice in the pictures that a lot of people showed up and packed the house.

After the traditional ceremony, Sarin and Non changed into their Western-style attire, with a touch of Cosplay influence. Sarin always talked about how her and Non actually met initially through both their love of anime and comics. The wedding party traveled to Kubota Garden in Renton, WA to take some photographs. The sun was beaming throughout the shots, which was quite the contrast from their rainy engagement session back in the Spring.

We ended the night at Tea Palace restaurant, where the reception featured a live band, continuous dancing, and a masquerade theme.
