Our Double Wedding

November 5, 2010

And, finally, here it is – the blog post about my own wedding.

Of course, the first question everyone asked me was “Who’s going to shoot your wedding?  Well, since my younger sister and I had a double wedding, it was necessary to have lots of photographers plus a videographer and have the day very well documented.  These people worked so hard to make sure that happened….and here is some photographic evidence of the day!   Visit their sites to find out more about them and their photography.

The next question people asked both my sister and I was “How did you plan a double wedding with your sister?” this question was often accompanied by a look of incredulousness as they imagined how two brides could have different opinions and get into lots of fights.  It was quite the opposite with us, though.  We both trusted each other, that we would often say, “you make a decision, I just don’t want to decide.”  [or maybe we are both just extreme procrastinators.  We couldn’t tell. Haha.]

Neither of us minded sharing our wedding day with our sister – in fact, we both considered it a wonderful, wonderful privilege to be able to do so!

As you’ll see by the photos, we both had our own style of dress, our own cake, and our own bridal parties…so it was very much combining our individual tastes, and having one incredible party.  It was such a wonderful day, and I don’t think it could have gone any better!  There are so many wonderful people who helped pull our day together, and we could never have done it without them.  Especially my Mom and older sister Anita…I feel like we should give them a vacation to some exotic location for all the work they put into the wedding.

Anyway, enough of me rambling…let the pictures begin!

And for those of you who are waiting for photos of the photobooth…they are coming – I promise!  I just have gotten a little delayed, but if you want to make sure to find out when they posted, subscribe to my blog – I’ll be doing a feature on them when they are finished.

Have a wonderful evening!
