We finally got the professional pictures for K & J's wedding by Noah Hawthorne and they are amazing! We posted teasers from our own humble camera back in May, but here they are. To recap, the couple started their day off with a gorgeous ceremony at the Skyline Community Church, with an intergrated Hawaiian lei ceremony to honor the groom's traditions. After the photo session, the couple rushed back to the hotel, where they did a Chinese Tea Ceremony to show their respect for the bride's cultural traditions. Finally, it was on the reception at the Oakland Asian Community Center, where they kicked off their evening with Storm Troopers, followed by lion dancers. And that's not it - the groom surprised his parents with a Taiko performance in the middle of the evening. This was the first time his parents had ever seen him perform! This was one energy-packed wedding day...and a very joyous one, for sure!
