Jennifer and Felix's Wedding at Palo Alto Hills Golf and Country Club

Jennifer and Felix tied the knot at Palo Alto Hills Golf and Country Club. They began with a traditional Chinese tea ceremony. When the groom and groomsmen arrived, they were intercepted by the bridesmaids by the door. The bridesmaids asked them to pass all sorts of tests for the permission to enter the door to marry the bride. The guys had no choice but to do a hundred push-ups, passing seaweeds mouth-to-mouth from one groomsman to another, smashing creamy pies on the face, popping ballons between each other, and the worst of all - they were forced to wear a bra while singing a love song to the bride. The so-called "Door game" is common among Southern Chinese tradition. It tests the groom's will to marry the bride. Often times, the grooms were asked to bribe the door keepers with money associated with the lucky number 8 (luck and prosperity) or 9 (longevity).  They would have to bargain their way down from $9,999 and hoping to get by with $0.99 cents. The games vary from wedding to wedding and are often painful and hilarious.
