Our wedding photographer, Danny Weiss, sent over some teaser pictures last night. I’m so happy that the photographers I originally wanted were all booked on the day of our wedding, because it lead us to Danny (he was a referral from one of the pre-booked photographers). Not only is Danny immensely talented, his enthusiasm and relentless energy just shines through all his photographs. I can’t wait to see the rest of the photos.
Me getting ready:
J tying his bowtie, which he had practiced all week:
My bridesmaids lacing up the back of the dress while I cackle like a witch:
Tea for the Chinese Tea Ceremony:
Kneeling at attention during the tea ceremony:
It was was major PITA (and a bit dangerous too) to kneel in my skintight qipao, but luckily we only had to do it once. Once down, we remained there as the adults took their turns in the chairs in front of us.
Gold bracelets and red packets:
The bridal party:
Hanging out and goofing around:
Spring, in all its glory:
I love this photo! We couldn’t have asked for better weather on our wedding day: April 18th was bright and sunny with a high of 83 degrees…which, at the time, was the warmest day of the year! The cherry blossoms were in full bloom and so I specifically chose
The Pond at Central Park for our photo location.
Strolling along The Pond:
Against the brick wall:
Stealing a kiss:
Leaving the park:
Walking down the aisle:
What waits at the end of the aisle:
I don’t care for flowers much, so I asked for the cheapest…and luckily it didn’t look too bad. In order to save money, we had the centerpieces for the reception used for the ceremony as well. Yep, that’s our centerpiece you see up there.
Parents of the bride:
You may now kiss the bride:
Our first dance:
Ending the first dance with a low dip and a kiss:
J and I decided to go along with my mother’s wishes and chose to do a choreographed routine for our first dance, to Michael Buble’s “For Once in My Life.” I wanted the Stevie Wonder version more since it’s more fun and more “us,” but the beat was a bit too fast for my big poofy gown. (Again, notice the timing and placement of the flashbulb…genius!)
Getting a sneak peak:
Shaking my booty with my aunt:
Adults have fun too:
One last kiss:
