OK, now we’re really married

kohsamuiwedding_2.jpgOn September 30, 2006, in Koh Samui, Thailand, Bliss and I were married in a beautiful beach ceremony at sunset. It was exactly what we wanted. It was perfect.

We highly recommend the people who pulled it all together. Same goes for Tongsai Bay, the place where we stayed — the venue, the service and food were all phenomenal. It wasn’t easy to leave.

I may write more about this when I have time, but for now feel free to view our wedding photos and our other photos from Thailand.

Because Bliss and I just love getting married, the fun doesn’t stop here. A Shanghai party is in the works, and the big wedding bash will be in Savannah, Ga., in February, on Chinese New Year eve.

Thanks to everyone who has offered congratulations. We couldn’t be happier … well, maybe if we were back in Koh Samui.

  14. Hello, I try something..I’m french, my english is not good, you can go to my blog : http://aurore.vefblog.net , I would like know where do you live ? in shangaï ? you are chiness ? ou francais ? bye


  15. I’m an American teaching English in Changchun up here in the northeast. I’m about to marry my Chinese boyfriend in about a year or so, and I came across your blog (which I am bookmarking) while searching for marriage info. One thing I can’t find any info on and I’d really like to ask you about is: what’s the health insurance situation for foreigners who are married to Chinese citizens? My school doesn’t provide anything in the way of insurance, and I’m not sure if there are different situations for interracial couples in China than for citizens. Anything you could tell me, links, personal experience and the like, would be GREATLY appreciated! Kudos. And congrats on your gorgeous wedding.


  16. Congrats man :)

    Lovely location and nice pics.
