|Hu-Cheung Wedding, 2014, Oil on canvas, by Sam Day.|
Kristy and Will had a simple, family centered wedding, packed with guests from both the United States and Taiwan. The ceremony was presided over by two ministers, and conducted in both English and Chinese, with translation for each. It was filled with music, performed by friends of the musical couple, and also sung by the congregation as a hymn, and included the serving of Communion. I more often paint receptions than ceremonies, but the length of this one made it possible. The couple met in this church, so a painting in the chapel itself has special significance for them.
