Real Wedding: Gina + Gabe

Pin It
Meet G2, otherwise known as Gina and Gabe. Getting to know couples, experiencing the new things, and seeing the unexpected are all reasons we truly love what we do.  The couple included so many cultural and personal details, that the day truly was reflective of them.  A traditional wedding ceremony, Korean Tea Ceremony, a Groomsmen choreographed dance, a Bridesmaids and Groomsmen dance off, and Zumba for all the guests were all a part of their special day. The day was filled was so much awesomeness, let me show you the day through the eyes of Sunny 16 Photography.
*Love* Gina's shoes!

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 The Groom & his Groomsmen practice their surprise dance for the reception in their "ready room."
First Looks are a wonderful way for the couple to have a special moment prior to the ceremony to ease nerves AND get to take pictures.  It allows for the grandeur of the special entrance, but gives the couple time to spend with their guests during the cocktail hour.  The couple usually has some very intimate pictures captured during first looks, because they have the room to themselves (and the photographer and videographer.)   
 
 
 
 The Bride's four brothers took turns as they walked her down the aisle.  The four of them jointly "gave her away."  It was very emotional as each brother passed their sister's hand to the next.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 The family picture in the pendant on the Bride's bouquet was a sweet surprise, and a very special way to include her deceased father.

 The bride danced with each of her four brothers.
 
 
 
 The Korean Tea Ceremony requires the Bride to bow in a painful way to each of her elders/mentors.  The woman on the far right of the picture is assisting the Bride bow and stand.
The elders toss chestnuts and dates for the couple to catch as a wish for fertility. 
 
 
The groom & his groomsmen performed a surprise dance during the reception. 
 
 
 
 
 
The couple came out with a choreographed dance to "introduce" Zumba to the reception.  Two Zumba instructors got everyone involved.
