They say that when you meet the right person, you’ll know it in your heart. Because it’s not about how you feel about the person, it’s about how that person makes you feel about yourself.
During the reception, our darling bride Julia, gave the most amazing speech that still, months after the wedding, is still etched in our memories. Smiling from ear to ear in her beautiful Vera Wang dress, Julia lovingly puts one hand on Toan’s shoulder and said, “For those that don’t know, I was always quite a shy girl. I was never this confident and the only reason why I am is because someone right next to me, Toan, believed in me and made me feel beautiful and made me feel like I can achieve anything in this world and I can’t thank you enough for giving me this self-esteem.”
As tradition, couples exchange gifts on their wedding day. Julia was elated when she received a classy Chanel bag from hew new husband. But their true gift was giving themselves to one another.
After their ceremony, we ran along with the photographers from JACKIE TRAN Photography to a unique location chosen by our lovely couple, the Australian Aviation Museum. Taking a break from the usual parklands and beaches, it was refreshing to visit some place different! Surrounded by vintage planes, the museum was a huge cinematography playground, it was no wonder Julia, Toan and their wedding entourage had a blast at this wedding shoot.
After a near decade of being together, Toan and Julia joined their hands in marriage, but more than that they joined their families. At their massive reception at the Grand Paradiso, Julia and Toan along with their 700 guests gathered around the projection screen to watch our same day edit video.
Looking at the smiles of everybody present with their eyes locked on the big screen as Julia and Toan bathed in the blessings of all their family and friends, we thought, our work here was done! That was definitely one of the reasons why we love doing same day edits. 🙂
