Justin & Gretchen's Wedding!

Just before the holidays, I posted a little sneak peak of Justin & Gretchen's Wedding. Well, I've gone through the 5,000 + images we shot on the day of the wedding and have finally finished editing my favorites! There were so many images I loved, it was hard to narrow it down :)

We started the day at the Hyatt Harborside Hotel. This was the view from Gretchen's window...

The dress was breathtaking and had so much fabulous detail!

A little detail of the shoes

Gretchen was SO excited!!

I loved the look on her Mom and soon-to-be sister-in-law's faces when Gretchen was finished with hair and makeup

Getting into the dress, with a little help

Gretchen, you're so beautiful!!

Time to get married!

I love the look on Justin's face when he sees Gretchen for the first time! Many thanks to my fabulous second shooter, James from The Feds for getting this shot!

Some of their friends sang during the ceremony, and just about everyone was crying

another great shot by James


After the ceremony we headed outside for some portraits by the Harbor

again with the gorgeousness!

Gotta love the aviators!

After the portraits, we headed over the Chinatown for the reception! I caught this shot on my way into the restaurant...

The Tea Ceremony

It turns out my favorite image of the first dance was taken by James. He caught a guest's flash in the background and it totally made the shot! I totally love it!

Gretchen's Dad looks so happy!

Chinese weddings have this fun tradition where the bride & groom, the entire bridal party, and all the family go around to every table and toast each guest. It's so chaotic and wonderful!

They finished up the night with karaoke and dancing! That's my kind of party :)

Gretchen & Justin - thank you so much for allowing us to be part of your day! It has been so wonderful getting to know you guys over the last year and a half. I cannot wait to photograph the first year of your new baby's life!!!!! (yep folks, these two are expecting a honeymoon baby ;) Congratulations once again!!
