On Saturday, we filmed a Vietnamese wedding, including the cultural tea ceremony in the morning. One of the best elements of this cultural celebration is when the groom and his groomsmen arrive at the home of the bride before the tea ceremony begins. In order for the groom to be allowed into the house and given access to the bride, they first must pay a heavy ransom set by the bridesmaids. The price for the groomsmen is originally set pretty high and unattainable, but is able to be negotiated down by doing the bridesmaids bidding.

The film is a little bit raw, but I could not resist posting the whole thing. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed filming it!
