We got the pics from the wedding!
After the ceremony, Jonathan and I dined alone while our guests had cocktails and appetizers. One piece of wedding advice that stood out to me was to take a few moments to be alone with your husband. That, combined with the rumors that the couple rarely get to eat on their wedding day, gave us the idea to take 20 minutes to grab a romantic dinner for two amid the festivities.
The dinner was romantic, but I was also so grateful to have a few minutes to catch my breath and process what just happened.
Then we joined the dinner reception.
In Chinese weddings, the bride and groom take time during dinner to toast each table individually. I think they usually drink Cognac, but since we had 21 tables, we sipped champagne. I still went through about 3-4 glasses. *burp*
The rest of the night was a whirlwind of dancing, late night tacos, and grinning from ear to ear.
It was the best day of my life. Hands down. I was so glad we listened to the wedding advice we liked and ignored the stuff we didn’t like. It was exactly what we both wanted and I wish we could do it again every single weekend. SO MUCH LOVE!
P.S. All of the labeled photographs are from our photographer, Poly Mendes. I would recommend her to anyone. She was accommodating, fast, professional, sweet, and told me I looked beautiful. You can’t beat that.
