I must say, my beautiful couple for this wedding blog entry seriously knew how to throw down a party! From beginning to end, the energy these two gave out throughout the wedding was nothing less of amazing. I met Jennifer for the first time during my visit to New York on one extremely cold January and we kicked off nicely with her band of crazy friends. I am not going to get into detail about what happened in New York, but let us just say it was definitely a memorable one. Years after our first encounter, I was honored when she picked me to photograph her lovely wedding, especially in my side of the country where it is a bit warmer! Overall, this wedding trumped all the crazy shenanigans we did in New York.
Jennifer and Cyrus’ big day started off with the girls off in their side of the Ranch with makeup and hairspray in the air. My dear friend Gina (MOH) kept the spirit up with her awesome karaoke to Pandora that streamed in the background. The boys definitely had a different approach to a relaxing morning. It consisted with polishing a nice bottle of Glenlivet (18 year of course) and discussion of how to improve their Magic the Gathering decks. I was able to relate just nicely since I revolved a good portion of my teenage years with that card game. Once both sides of the wedding party were prepped up and ready to rock, we started their wedding photography session before their ceremony. The ranch hand plenty of colorful locations for there photos. One after another, we snapped away and recorded the “money shots” and everything in between when they goofed off throughout the day. Their wedding ceremony was short, sweet, and had a few tears along the way. Once the first ceremony was over, Jennifer and Cyrus kept it traditional with some beautifully colored Korean outfits while they honored the parents and elders.
At the time of their wedding, the popular song, Gangnam Style by PSY, was made hits all over the airwaves. What better way to make a grand entrance than to dance to that song! It surprised everything even myself since this was actually the first time I have heard of this song. I suppose I am more of an Oldies Beatles kind of guy, but I must admit that song had a really catchy beat! Their dance worked up an appetite and everyone’s adrenaline settled down, everyone mingled, enjoyed dinner, and shared some touching speeches throughout the night. Once the itinerary was all wrapped up and finished, the party really started…might be overboard, but that is a matter of perspective. Let us just say the wedding party ended up partying in the pool at the end of the night. I will let their wedding photos tell the rest of the story. Enjoy!
