Tom and Jiaying's love story started in college at the University of Texas in Austin. They met during a recruiting event for their internship.

One thing that brought them closer was their shared love for playing ping pong. It was a fun and energetic way for them to bond when they first met.

During the Chinese New Year weekend, as part of the festivities, they played a game where coins were hidden in dumplings for good luck. Guess what? Jiaying's dumpling had a ring inside!

When it came time to choose a venue for their wedding, they fell in love with the Orchard and Caney Creek. The venue was also the perfect size for their guest count and had a beautiful outdoor area.

Adding a touch of sweetness to their wedding, Tom and Jiaying included their beloved dog, Daisy, in the wedding party. It was a heartwarming moment to have their furry friend be a part of their special day.

Jiaying looked stunning in her Allure Bridals dress from Ventura's Bridal Fashions in Houston, Texas. The dress was chosen for its simplicity and elegance, perfectly complementing Jiaying's natural beauty.

Their greatest hope was for all of their family and friends to have a fun and memorable night. Well, let's just say that their reception was an absolute banger! The dance floor was filled with incredible moves and laughter. To add to the excitement, guests were given foam glow sticks to light up the dance floor. And as a surprise treat, a late-night snack was served, ensuring that the night would be etched in everyone's memories.

As their photographer, I captured every warm, romantic, and fun-loving moment of their special day. It was a truly elegant affair, filled with unforgettable memories.
