Rachel and Yijun's wedding at Myer Mural Hall, 8th March 2014
Our wedding day was more perfect than we dreamed it could be. Thank you for your amazing performance. Our guests were amazed by your skills - for sure it was their first watching a lion dance performance. You guys looked spectacular with Mural Hall as a backdrop - it was a real treat for us since lion dance has been a favourite thing since childhood :)
Love Rachel and Yijun
