Chen-Lu wedding

We attended a wedding of our cousins in Kaoshung at a very big downtown restaurant. It was the usual celebration with ceremony first, followed by a feast. It was a very traditional wedding of the time.  All the older generation gave their blessings. There was no involvement by the young couple’s friends, as happens in a western style wedding. There were quite a number of our relatives there, some of whose names, of course, we do not even know!  My cousin was the second child of my uncle’s family, I remember that he was born just before we escaped from mainland China in 1948. At the time of his wedding, he was a teacher at a local school. wed-1wed-2wed-3wed-4wed--5wed-6
