26 Oct Newberry Estate Vineyards Wedding | Kelly and Lien
It was a bright, beautifully sunny day in September, and Newberry Estate Vineyards was looking especially lovely; there were still roses in bloom and the fountains were sparkling with reflected light. Everything was set up and ready to go for Kelly and Lien’s wedding. Our team of three – Hok second shooting, Kirsty assisting – got to spend some time with Kelly and her sisters and bridesmaids as they prepared. Then Lien and his guys showed up and started getting dressed as well. After much anticipation and a bit of nervousness, the moment came and Kelly walked down the aisle with her dad. Though Kelly and Lien had been together for a long time -and when we did their engagement shoot back in the spring they were playful and lighthearted – you could tell this was a significant moment that they had been waiting for. I know Kelly was feeling nervous, and I think there was a palpable sigh of relief once the main even was done and it was time to celebrate. We got some portraits of the couple on the beautiful grounds, and then it was time for the grand entrance! Right after they came in, they did a traditional tea ceremony which was a surprise for the parents, followed by the first dance. During their parent dances, Kelly brought up her mom to join her and her dad (also a surprise, I think) and Lien brought up his dad to join his mom. These are just some of the thoughtful details that they brought into their wedding to thank and honor their families, and it was so sweet to watch. Finally at the very end of the night, we managed to set up a night time portrait that turned out kind of magical (even though we did all get mauled by mosquitoes -worth it!) . Congratulations Kelly and Lien – may the love you have for your families be carried on as you start your new family together :D.
