Minna’s Wedding

A couple weeks ago Jon and I were able to attend Minna’s wedding. Minna works at Daktronics in HR and also tutors me in Chinese occasionally. There didn’t seem to be an actual ceremony like we usually see, but just a large celebration, speeches from the family and the biggest meal I have ever seen! The dishes were piled on top of each other and kept coming long after everyone was stuffed.

Minna and her husband. She started out in a white, Western wedding dress, then changed to a gold dress, then finally changed into a red traditional Chinese dress. (Red is lucky in China, while white is the color for funerals.)

The guests all signed this, which was then cut up and names drawn for prizes.

A new dish for me – soft shelled turtle.
