Prior to their wedding, I had not yet met Jiayi and Yuchao; so I was so eager to get to their wedding day and get to know them. From the minute I walked in, I was blown away by their kindness. Meeting someone for the first time on their wedding day can be a little stressful and intimidating. You want to create a bond, considering you will be with them for one of the biggest days in their lives, but you also don’t want to be too invasive, because it is a busy and exciting day for them. But with Yuchao and Jiayi, they were instantly so kind and caring. They constantly were checking to make sure our team was doing okay, and wanted to be accommodating in everything that they did. I am so grateful to get to serve such wonderful clients that allow me to come in and share in their big day; it just makes my heart skip a beat and my creativity over flow!
Something incredibly unique about Yuchao and Jiayi’s wedding, is that apart from the two of them, their maid of honor and best man, no one else spoke any English. But let me tell you, I truly saw at their wedding, how regardless of the language, the traditions, or the couple, each wedding is so beautiful in it’s own way. At one during the reception, Jiayi’s father was giving a toast, and I was in tears. I could not understand a single word he was saying, but his love for his daughter shined brighter than a language barrier. I think that will forever be one of my favorite memories at a wedding.
You could tell, Yuchao and Jiayi felt right at home being with their people, regardless of the fact that they were thousands of miles away from the place they truly call home. Their friends and family have loved them well and go the extra mile (literally, many of their guests traveled from China) to share in this celebration with them!
Jiayi and Yuchao, thank you for your overflowing kindness and for allowing me to capture your wedding day. I loved every minute of it.
