Asian bride and groom walking down the aisle after the conclusion of their wedding ceremony. They are both smiling and celebrating while holding hands and reaching up into the air. The bride is wearing a detailed white dress, a floral hair piece, and holds a bouquet of white roses. The groom is wearing a blue suit, white dress shirt, pale pink tie, and boutonniere.
