Lion Dance: The Immortals
Chanda and I embarked on the nautical-themed wedding of Sarah and Dave aboard the Eternity Yacht in Newport Beach on November 12, 2011. This time we brought along fellow photographer Brian Labrada to help us capture their special event. I always encourage having multiple photographers at weddings, not only because it allows for multiple angles (imagine capturing the walk down the aisle from just one perspective), but with a compacted schedule, it is often difficult to be in two different places at once. Rain was expected that weekend (what nautical-themed wedding would be complete without rain?) – and it certainly did rain, but luckily it didn’t start pouring until after the yacht docked. It didn’t, however, put a damper on the festivities as everyone still had a great time. After a tea ceremony onboard the yacht, the joyous affair ended with a pair of Chinese lions greeting guests on their way out with a thundering performance to close out their big day. Enjoy the photos!
