Chambers Bay Cambodian wedding

Sitha and Derrick met in high school in Lacey. They were engaged for a little more than a year and were married on July 4, 2015, at Chambers Bay. Their wedding was a couple of weeks after the U.S. Open golf championship at Chambers Bay, where thousands of people watched the event. At the time of the wedding, not all the temporary buildings and bleachers had been removed.

It was very hot on their wedding day — nearly 100 degrees during the ceremony. Fortunately they were able to use the air-conditioned USGA hospitality pavilion from the U.S. Open.

Earlier in the day, Sitha wore two different Cambodian dresses for a photography session with Derrick and their wedding party at the Courtyard by Marriott Tacoma Downtown.

DÉCOR: Using colors of coral, teal and gold, the florist created a flower-decorated arch for the ceremony. Coral-colored sashes were attached to some ceremony chairs. Fresh flowers were on the reception tables, in Mason jars painted teal.

FAVORS: The couple gave guests a variety of cookies from Meconi’s Italian Subs in Lacey, Sitha and Derrick’s favorite sandwich restaurant.

After the reception, there were fireworks over the water, which everyone enjoyed.

Sitha works in accounting, and Derrick works in technical consulting. They make their home in University Place.

This wedding was featured in South Sound Wedding & Event magazine 2017.
