When Crystal of Crystal Jean Photography invited me to second shoot for Andrew and Shana’s wedding I was thrilled! The wedding was so much fun and I love all the details that went into this big day. Shana has her own wedding/event planning business so it’s no wonder that everything turned out so perfectly. Thank you for having me! : )
Andrew and Shana decided to keep a few traditions going and included both a Chinese and Japanese tea ceremony into their special day. I really love how the two were distinct and special in their own way. : )
The Japanese garden was beautiful! You can’t tell from these pictures, but it was also SUPER cold that day. Props to Shana and all the bridesmaids for being such troopers!
Now, the ceremony. It was intimate and so sweet.
After the ceremony a reception was held at theÂ Miyako Hybrid Hotel and the details looked absolutely perfect there.Â
Andrew and Shana love basketball so their bridal party came in with jerseys on while the MC announced their entrance as if they were basketball stars…what a clever idea!
After dinner was served there was a performance by the groom himself and his buddies from an acapella group they all used to be a part of. Shana loved it! : ) Toasts followed afterwards.
Shana changed into a Kimono for cake-cutting. How cute is she?!
Haaaaaay, time to get your groove on! : )
Congrats Andrew and Shana! Blessings to you both! : )
