We were excited for Siv & Wilson’s Cambodian wedding at the Shangri-la Banquet Hall in Markham. These weddings are a lot of fun to do because the guests tend to be a lot more laid back. Don’t forget the killer dance moves these guests seem to possess.
The festivities started with a Tea Ceremony at the Woodbine Room. This is the larger room beside Beaumont. It was also decorated for the actual Wedding Ceremony. Once the Ceremony was done, off to the Beaumont room we went.
The Beaumont room was elegantly decorated, as usual. The room’s built in lighting really makes the rest of the decor pop out – giving this Cambodian and Chinese wedding a really nice Western flair.
The pair of Wedding MCs kicked off the party with the Grand Entrance. The parents walked happily with Nat King Cole singing his legendary L.O.V.E. Then it was time to kick it up a notch with the Bridal Party. The room celebrated as they danced into the room while PSY was singing Daddy.
Finally, we brought in our lovely Bride and Groom with PSY’s Gentleman blasting through the loudspeakers. It was a great way to kick off the evening.
Everyone enjoyed the evening’s traditional Chinese twelve course dinner. We had lots of entertainment throughout the evening to keep the guests wanting more. We employed games, slideshows, and even a surprise video on how Wilson proposed to Siv. That was beautiful to watch.
Finally, we opened the dance floor with a traditional Khmer Dance. This served as an introduction for the guests to the Khmer culture. The dance moves were pretty easy to follow so guests were grooving to it in no time.
It was then time to get everyone grooving to new beats. We danced the night away while still injecting more modern Cambodian songs into the mix.
