    Hong Kong actress-singer Gillian Chung held a wedding ceremony in Los Angeles with Taiwanese doctor Michael Lai on Saturday.

    Many close friends attended the event, including Charlene Choi, Joey Yung, and Yumiko Cheng, who were also the bridesmaids of Chung, according to AsiaOne.

    It’s not possible to write down how I feel in detail… We’ve been through so much together, outsiders will not be able to comprehend, and I don’t have to explain everything,” Choi wrote in her message on social media, Epoch Times reported. “Only you know how happy I am for you, and how much I wish that you’ll be happy forever, that’s enough!”

    The 37-year-old actress shared the engagement news to Lai, who is eight years her senior and has also been dubbed the “Sunny Wang of the medical world” for his striking resemblance to the actor, in February 2017.

    Since the ceremony was not officiated by a solemnizer, the couple is set to hold another wedding ceremony in Hong Kong in September, according to reports.

    As a thank you for all the well-wishers, Chung posted a short video on social media on the day of the ceremony.

    The two met while Chung was filming a new drama in Taiwan in July 2017. The actress then admitted that she and Lai began dating in October of the same year.

    Congratulations and best wishes to the newlywed couple!
