Last weekend, I had the honor of coordinating Christina & Rei's wedding at The Athenaeum. The venue itself is a gorgeous testament to architecture. But fill it with love, laughter, friends, and family, the venue shined ever more brightly. Thank you Jay and Peggy from Jay Tsai Photography for capturing these shining moments. Christina and Rei are really a match made in heaven.
Beautiful shot of the rings in the folds of Christina's gorgeous Paloma Blanca wedding dress
Family and friends looked on as Christina finished her makeup
This is why I love this girl! As Christina's heading down the archway for their 'first look,' she throws out the 'piece sign.' I love how happy and excited she was!
One of my favorite shots from Christina's portrait session. It looks like a framed picture ready to go on the wall.
Another amazing shot from the couple's portrait session around the campus.
My FAVORITE picture of the day! This really captures the spunk and fun-loving nature of this wedding. Christina with her sister Amanda the MOH and Rei with his brother Joe who is the Best Man.
These beautiful manzanita trees were at the top of the steps creating a beautiful backdrop to the ceremony. Eddie really outdid himself this time!
The table were dressed in champagne linens and chocolate brown napkins. Each place setting adorn with menus made by the bride (on her Gocco no less!) and a cookie favor packaged in yellow with gold thread. The breathtaking centerpieces were the creation of Eddie from Commerce Flowers.
Christina and Rei practiced their first dance which was a fox trot to 'The way you look tonight' by Frank Sinatra.
The day was filled with touching moments. One that stood out especially in my mind was the BM and MOH toasts ~ funny but still brought tears to your eyes, the best kind!!
Jay captured this tender moment amiss the partying going around them.
I know Christina and Rei are going to have a wonderful life together. They just complement each other so well! They have the love and support of amazing family and friends and I feel so blessed to have been there to witness their love and happiness. They're currently on their FIVE week honeymoon in Italy and Greece! I know! FIVE WEEKS! I already asked if they could pack me in their bags...sadly, it was a no. :D For more pictures and an amazing slideshow, visit Jay's blog.
