The glorious Gotham Hall in New York City set the stage for this warm winter wedding. The theme was an elegant party that fused traditional elements and touches of Hong Kong, the groom's work base. As a nod to both sides of the globe, Barraud Caterers created a dinner with a distinctive progression of tastes. Then, as dessert was being served, fifteen dynamic Dragon Dancers and drummers heralded the start of the dancing. A party indeed!
