I'm finally getting this post up! These are pics from my Best Friend's wedding on October 2nd. These are just a few of the hundreds of pics but these capture the day pretty well :) The super nice pics mixed in with the regular ones are shots of the professional photos from the Photographer's blog at Jeff Roffmann Photogrphy. He was an amazing photographer and hilarious too!
We starting getting ready at 10:30am for the 6pm wedding. All the bridesmaids went to a salon to have our hair done...and the makeup artist and his assistant also met us there.
Here's a pic of me, Alex and Melissa after our makeup and hair. I loved the way my hair came out...you can't really see the intricate style in the back but it was cool! Too bad there was drama with the makeup...some of the applications needed a little fixing. The makeup artist did this weird drawn on crease for my "asian eyes" which I had to blend out. Fortunately I brought my train case full of makeup so I could fix everybody, lol.
Great shot of the bride after makeup...chatting, waiting for hair.
Here's the bride getting her hair done. She was going for a vintage look similar to the celebrities of the 1940s.
Isn't she lovely?
We ran late of course...and made it in time to the venue to throw on our clothes and touch up. Here I am applying the bride's red lip...Ruby Woo lipstick, Vino lip pencil, and bit of clear lipglass to the center.
Great shot...everybody taking pictures :)
Great beauty shot...the colors are a little off though because her lipstick wasn't that bright...it was more of a deeper red.
We're excited and ready to make our walk down the aisle!
We started crying even before she made her way up to the groom!
The sun just started to set as the ceremony began...gorgeous!
Here's one of the shots after the ceremony. Big wedding party right?
The wedding was in Piedmont Park...love how this shot overlooks the city.
Each pair in the wedding party was introduced into the reception and we had to come up with a mini dance number to a Marvin Gaye song. Here is me and my partner...can you believe I ended up doing the Kid & Play dance in my 4 inch heels?
Shot of the bouquet and cake.
Instead of regular table numbers, she framed pics of her two doggies. Her gift/favor to the guests was a donation in their name to the humane society. The pics of the doggies were my idea! My boyfriend took the pictures :)
Here's a shot of the gorgeous bride. Her mom made her the hair piece she has on for the reception as well as the veil she wore for the ceremony. For their dance number they did a complete choreographed danced to a Michael Bouble jazzy rendition.
I did! I accidentally elbowed someone in the stomach to get it, lol. Here are all the guys congratulating the boyfriend, lol.
Here we are...I'm posing with what's left of the bouquet, lol.
Interesting enough, the groom decided not to pick a best man. So allll of the groomsmen gave a speech, lol...some of them could have kept silent.
I had to show you a shot of the dress. Isn't it gorgeous! It helps that Sai looks like a model in the first place!
