The Groom, having overcome
the obstacles placed in his path by the
Bride's friends, meets his Bride, and they go through the remaining ceremonies of the
long wedding day together. These Chinese customs are observed first at the Bride's
home, then at the home of the Groom.
Chinese tea and rice wine are poured in preparation for the groom and bride to pay respects to the Bride's Chinese ancestors, by the burning of joss sticks and kow-tow. The red Chinese candles, one of a Phoenix and one of a Chinese Dragon, represent the Bride and the Groom.
