From the moment we sat down with Jamie and Tina, we knew this wouldn’t be our typical wedding. We always ask how many people you are expecting to attend. They said, “Oh, about 500”. We were gobsmacked! Jamie asked us if that would be the largest wedding we’d shot. Yes, but only by a couple of hundred people… I don’t think I even know 500 people! But, suffice it to say, we were so excited to see Jamie & Tina’s wedding day unfold!

The day started at Tina’s parent’s house. Keeping with Chinese tradition, before Jamie was allowed to see Tina, he had to complete tasks set out by the bridesmaids. Jamie started out with correctly selecting his bride’s lipstick mark on a piece of paper. Next, he told Tina how much he loved her by yelling “I love you!” in as many languages as he could. The bridesmaids were pleased with the outcome and allowed Jamie to head upstairs to see Tina. After completing his next task to find Tina’s hidden shoes, Jamie carried her down to the living room for the last game. In the living room, Jamie & the groomsmen had to replicate positions of a tied up Pink Panther doll. The guys were such good sports and I was quite amused watching it all happen!

Jamie & Tina included traditional Chinese tea ceremonies for both sides of their family – a ceremony in the morning with Tina’s family and one before the wedding ceremony for Jamie’s family. This was our first opportunity to capture this tradition and it is such an incredible sign of respect to their families. Such a beautiful ceremony to witness.

For Cam & I, the day was a little outside of our usual. The day before the wedding Cam woke up in a lot of pain. After spending most of Friday in the Emergency Room, he ended up having an appendectomy surgery first thing Saturday morning. Thankfully our good friend Krystal, of Krystal Moore Photography, was able to step in to help. Thank you so much, Krystal! It was a pleasure to have you along for the day!

Jamie & Tina, thank you for allowing Courtney Liske Photography to celebrate your wedding day with you. You are such a fun and loving couple. We couldn’t be more excited for the journey you have begun together. May your love continue to blossom and grow in the years to come! We wish you all the best as Jamie begins at Harvard this fall!

xoxo
