Jane & Kris, 10.27.07

Jane & Kris have got to be one of my most favorite couples and this is why. Everything didn't go according to plan for their wedding. The outdoor ceremony on the lawn had to be moved indoors because of some light rain. Then in the middle of the reception, all the electricity in the area (Mission Bay) went out! That meant people eating their meals by candlelight, no dancing, and no karaoke like they had envisioned. But throughout the whole day, they both were still beaming from ear to ear! Their attitude was basically, Who cares? We're getting MARRIED!!! I love that. So future brides, take heart- even if everything isn't perfect, just remember that the day is still about you two & the love you share, and that's plenty to be happy about!

Jane got ready in the Hyatt down the street from Marina Village where the ceremony and reception were held.

Wow- she rocks as a bride! (BTW, her dress was hand-made by her aunt.)

Kris is Japanese, so they had a Japanese theme running.

No little girl could be found, so they had a very cute, very shy flower boy. This was one of the most hilarious parts of the ceremony. He walked down the aisle like that the whole way!

This is what I mean when I say these two were just glowing the entire day.

There was also an 80's theme going on during the reception so tables were by 80's movies, and they had 80's music playing all evening until the power went out. (Another reason why I loved this wedding. I couldn't stop singing to all the songs during the reception!)

Ooooh, if you're a wine connoisseur, you would've definitely wanted to be at this reception. 1976 Mouton Rothschild. I won't even say how much...it'll just make your jaw drop.

And all the lucky guests had a glass to toast with.

They really put the sword to good use during cake cutting.
