I loved the description from the fabulous EyeWonder Photographers of Olivia and Yujin’s wedding. They summed up the affair with three words…Modern, Emotional ad Untamed. Here is their explanation from their blog….
“Modern: Our jaws dropped when we first walked into the hotel with its ultra modern décor and funky vibe. In keeping with that theme, the bridesmaids’ dresses were black, Olivia’s bouquet included feathers and cabbage (yes cabbage – absolutely gorgeous), and she slipped on glittery gold Louboutin’s with her gorgeous gown. Olivia’s Aunt Shannon (an art director) created brilliant life-sized prints of their engagement photos made out of Plexiglas and backlit with purple lighting – insane! Who does that??!!!
Emotional: Olivia and Yujin are warm, genuine, appreciative, and open – they make the most beautiful couple. There were tears, hugs, heartfelt toasts and an emotional phone call from Olivia’s cousin who is serving in Iraq. Lionel and I couldn’t keep it together – we cried several times each!
Untamed: A lively Argentine tango performance followed by a dance lesson got the crowd going and they didn’t stop ALL night… seriously. DJ Lil’ E was a beast and the crowd loved every minute of it. Every age group was represented on the dance floor, Olivia “got low”, and Yujin’s dad cut a rug along with the rest. We had so many awesome reception photos we had to make a collage!”
