For for the reception, Sui-Ling put on a big lavender colored flower on the left side of her hair. She was truly a beautiful radiant bride in sight. Diverting from the norm, the bride and groom instead of sitting down, did their own hosting. They were emcees of their own wedding reception. Emil and Sui performed one dance before dinner. During dinner, there were entertainments like pre-nuptial video, ballet, violin play and vocals from friends who volunteered for the wedded couple. That evening, Mr. John Sarmiento took to the floor and danced with her daughter. And to cap the evening's affair, very uniquely, (My first time to witness) the night's program culminated by a delightfully lively line-dance; done by the bride herself, her bride's maids and friends. (I was secretly told to join the line dance but alas, I couldn't because of a sprained ankle.) For me, it was totally a unique, beautiful and memorable wedding party.
