Sacramento Chinese Wedding: Amy and John

I was talking to one of my couples from 2008,  Nelson and Linda, and they mentioned that Nelsons sister Amy was getting married soon…Of course I was super excited to meet them!  Amy, John, and I talked about life, love, pictures, and how much we wanted to rock out some fun youthful photos for them.  I was super stoked off of their engagement session at the Davis arboretum, and after that shoot I knew that the wedding was going to be just as fun!  We did the tradtional tea ceremonies, and after a fantastic lunch ( one of the perks of shooting a chinese wedding… yummy food!),  we went to midtown to shoot some fun portraits.  My friend Jessica Moores came to hang out in midtown for the portraits and do some no-pressure shooting with me, which was rad. While we were out shooting, John got a call that the ENTIRE reception had to be moved  from the King Palace restaurant to Happy Garden Restaurant  due to a plumbing issue… and he was as cool as a cucumber! Amazing… Amy, he’s a keeper =)

Happy Garden Restaurant is a popular banquet hall for Chinese Weddings in Sacramento, and my last four have been here:
