antoinette & neil's wedding

guest commentator: monica

antoinette & neil's wedding was a blast! we started with bridal prep pictures with the ladies at antoinette's parents' home where she was sitting pretty and probably more relaxed than any other bride we've seen! we even got a chance to capture her opening her wedding gift from neil.

neil and the guys waited patiently at st. vincent's ferrer parish in vallejo, where we were able to get some shots of the guys before the ceremony started. all were thrilled to have witnessed the union of this "junior high couple," in a heartfelt catholic wedding with filipino traditions.

their reception venue at the hiddenbrooke golf club was decked out in their tiffany theme, complete with tiffany boxes & jewels. antoinette and neil surprised their guests with a special dance routine choreographed by his grandfather, who was gracious enough to lend him a sequined shirt. the dancing continued through the last minutes of 7.07.07, making for an enjoyable party for all.

congratulations, antoinette & neil! may your marriage be as beautiful and long-lasting as your veil! ;)

and thanks to cliff for joining us to shoot their wedding! we had such a blast with this very talented photographer!
