If there was ever a rainy wedding day that had more tears than rain, then it was Diana & Terry’s Persimmon Country Club wedding. Every moment was felt with their hearts and shown in happy tears, their love enveloped by the presence of their 300 wedding guests who traveled near and far. Our associate shooter, Bunn, texted us from the wedding and said she cried so much during the Father-Daughter Dance that she could barely see through her camera. When we received the images, we could see why… it was one of the most beautiful dances we’ve edited in the 10 years we’ve been in the wedding industry. Bunn said that Diana & Terry’s wedding reminded her of her own Lao-Filipino wedding as Diana’s family is originally from the Philippines and Terry’s family is from Laos. Which is why their attention to every little detail included providing food from both of their cultures, plus American food, and everything looked delicious!
Along with tears were tons of laughter— and drinking! We love when our brides and grooms greet their wedding guests table to table; you never know what fun games the guests make our couples do which always end with shots all around! After 30 tables of shots, Diana & Terry kept everyone entertained with special musical performances by their son to a choreographed dance with the entire bridal party (a very good choice of the country dance band for hire, indeed). Then Terry surprised everyone with his own style of retrieving the garter belt… this guy can dance! We don’t know how they did it, but Diana & Terry managed to pack in so much fun in one day!
Due to the heavy rain on their wedding day their videographer, Ambient Sky Studios, and Bunn returned on a sunnier day to do couples portraits for the bride and groom. We hope you enjoy these little snippets from their amazing wedding; it was really hard to keep from posting every photo! Congratulations, Diana & Terry!! XOXO Rebecca, Jerome & Bunn
