Happy New Year everyone! For the first post of 2012 we’re going to start out with something a little different. For Christina and Huy’s wedding we’re going to let them do the talking… Now we can’t take complete credit for this idea. It’s something that our friends from A Practical Wedding have done, only we’re going to do it a little differently.
Those of you that have been with us a while have seen Christina & Huy’s engagement session in historic St. Andrews and watched as she stunned everyone with her knock-out bridal portraits. We’ve gone on and on about how much fun they are (because truly, they are) and talked up their wedding.
So here’s what we recommend you do for maximum enjoyment… Click play on the video and crank up the volume. We realize that it’s a really casual song for such a formal wedding, but it seemed to fit them perfectly. Casual, classy, and fun. If you’re at work, put some headphones on for heaven’s sakes (we’re not responsible for you getting fired!). Then scroll through these pictures & listen to them describe their wedding in their own words.
While the girls were busy getting ready and putting on the finishing touches, the guys were being… guys. As one of Huy’s groomsmen helped him with his tux, he couldn’t help but wonder…
Is this real life???
When we asked Christina what her favorite part of their wedding day was, she replied:
It was really special the fact that my uncle and my dad got to walk me down the aisle. I’m really close with both of them, and I wanted to honor them. That meant a lot…
When Huy was forced to articulate what he felt when he saw his bride for the first time, he struggled… Capturing this moment is one of our favorite things. It’s like seeing your child for the first time. But of course we tried to get him to anyway (without seeing the picture). His initial response? “Schwing!” Afterwards he re-thought his response…
Wowzers…Oh my…. This is really happening… I was really lost for words with all the emotions going through my head….
The whole ceremony was incredibly sentimental and meaningful. I have always wanted to have that type of wedding and when it happened it was just overwhelming. I’m tearing up just talking about it. You should have seen me at the rehearsal. I was a mess! Fortunately during the ceremony I was able to compose myself relatively well. – Christina
One of my favorite things about the reception was seeing everybody having a great time. – Huy
One of my favorite parts of the reception was the Photobooth… I loved watching the children go in there and get their picture taken – Christina
We have to agree. It was fun not only for the kids, but for the kids at heart…
