pei + weijun :: married! wedding photography by silverbox

Photobucketpei and weijun, how can i express my gratitude for the privilege of photographing your wedding?!

for those of you "silver lining" readers who don't know pei and weijun, i think you'll fall in love with them just like i did!

both are from china, earning doctorates in the united states.

in their short time here, they have amassed a mountain of friends.

and you can see why from their pictures . . . pei and weijun radiate joy that envelopes everyone around them.

their wedding day SCHEDULE was a dream come true (future brides and grooms take note)!!!

~theirs was an AFTERNOON reception (from 2:30 - 4:30 pm) enabling us to make pictures of just the two of them in downtown columbia in the evening during the best (i.e. golden hour) light of the day;

~pei tossed her bouquet OUTSIDE the church as part of their grand exit from the reception;

~pei and weijun delegated beautifully! friends were involved in every aspect . . . ushering, reading, coordinating the reception, overseeing the catering. it was a team effort that allowed the couple to enjoy the day.

take a look at the results of these scheduling day decisions by scrolling down at some favorites AND by watching their wedding day slideshow by clicking here.
