Leesburg Wedding with a Chinese Lion Dance

Featured Real Weddings

Phoebe and Lee’s August wedding at Fleetwood Winery was a colorful fusion of Chinese and Western traditions. Highlights of this Northern Virginia Real Wedding include a Lion Dance, a pastel and lilac color palette, a stunning custom seating chart, and many personal touches, such as the “double happiness” symbol incorporated throughout the day.

Phoebe’s troupe that she has been a part of for a decade, Choy Wun Lion Dance Troupe, performed a traditional Chinese lion dance with the “double happiness” design on the pair of red wedding lions. Phoebe and Lee had their grand entrance followed by the lion dance which was accompanied by the beat of the drum, clang of the cymbals, and cadence of the gong.

The lions performed a never before seen surprise which included hand painted
calligraphy on a poster with the Chinese character representing “love”. It was so touching to have Phoebe’s troupe bless them as newlyweds with a prosperous and life long marriage.

One important aspect of Chinese weddings is the incorporation of the “double happiness”
character. This symbol is frequently used in Chinese weddings and represents joy and happiness as the couple embarks on their journey as newlyweds. Phoebe and Lee made sure to incorporate this symbol throughout their tea ceremony and on their wedding day, such as on Lee’s cufflinks, programs, menu name cards, and signs.
