Wedding: Sonia and Andy

I've heard all the rules about blog post length, reader attention spans on the web, iPad and iPhone viewing limits per page, and overrunning layouts in terms of graphic design. Well, this blog post goes against ALL those rules. Not because I don't care. But more so, because: 
1) SO MANY of you have requested the blog post for this wedding, and the sheer excess of images is to say thank you for waiting so patiently. 
2) I just couldn't cut this story shorter. In doing so, it would have left out so many elements that we felt were so special to all the seen and unseen moments of the day.  
So, without further ado, I'm re-introducing Sonia and Andy. Remember these two? Their engagement session was shot here :) And if you recall, Sonia is half of musical sensation, Jayesslee (the other half is her twin sister, Janice), and her man that you see here, Andy, is their drummer and manager. Now, I could give you a wikipedia-like spill on all their details, what an insanely talented duo they are, and how they are seriously taking the world by storm. But I wont. Their facebook page, their youtube page, and their website will tell you all that.  
I'm here to share with you, a really special day that I got to step into, immerse in, and preserve forever in images. And more importantly, share about just how beautiful these two souls are. People think I say this about every couple, but these two have seriously left a footprint on my heart. They inspire me with their passion for Jesus and making him known through their music, they encourage me with their incredible humility, and just by witnessing their lives, family and friends for a day I have been touched by their genuine love and generosity towards those around them.  
Andy and Sonia. What can I say? I love you guys to bits!! I mean that from the bottom of my heart. I can't thank you enough for trusting me to tell the story of your day... David and I left your wedding saying that the rest of 2012 has such BIG shoes to fill as you have started off our season in such an immense way. You both are more than clients... rather, sweet friends that I'm so incredibly honored to know. I hope these photos do some sort of justice and find a small place in your heart to treasure for the rest of your days. May God continue to use you mightily in His great and wondrous plans, and I pray that your marriage is filled with an immeasurable abundance of love, happiness, and growth in our Father :) 
Much much love 
ps: Just a shoutout to my AMAZING, OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD team - Vincy and David. David, thank you for shooting along side me. Your eyes and what they manage to always see is incredible. Any bride who has worked with us will know what a gem you are on the day :) And to Vincy, who captured the video footage (which you will see in the slideshow at the end of this post), thank you for your hard word, and the beautiful footage you got. For someone who doubles up as photographer, videographer, and our Studio Manager. You are super woman!! Love u both!! 
***UPDATE!!*** Just a last side note. Thank you to everyone who has been sharing our images. We just ask that if you want to share/use the photos (and please do share - we love you for it!!) to PLEASE 1) not crop out our watermark logo and 2) to pretty please credit Jenny Sun or Jenny Sun Photography for them. My team has worked ridiculously hard on these images for Sonia and Andy, and for all of you to enjoy, so little things like this mean the WORLD to small artists like ourselves and go a long way. Thank you thank you thank youuuuuuu!!!
So, I started off with the girls! :D
David was with the boys getting ready, and got the below shots :D
A very special moment. It was spoken in korean so I didn't understand what was said, but I believe it was a heartfelt thank you/tribute to their parents.
I love this moment where Janice dedicates a special song performance to Sonia and Andy. I won't say what song, but lets just say it was sweet, beautiful and so well covered :)
I LOVE this moment. I had a lump in my throat as I heard Andy give his speech. You just had to be there to understand the weight of it. Let's just say, God answers prayers and performs miracles.
These last photos are dedicated to Sonia's well known love for fairylights :) Kind of reminds me of the rotunda where Bella and Edward had their first dance in the very first Twilight movie.
To end, this last compilation is of their whole wedding with music, AND some special video footage (link to the video is here on vimeo in case you can't view it via RSS) ! It's my first time working on a fusion slideshow ON MY OWN (our usual video peeps were not with us on the day), so this took forever. I KNOWW the footage isn't perfect, but for my first attempt, I'm happy I didn't drop the camera or throw a brick at iMovie trying to finish it hehehe... Do press play, we know it's long, but we promise you its worth it! :D 
Lastly, for those who have asked, the music used in the above slideshow video is listed below. PLEASE support these amazing artists by purchasing their music (and not rip it off the internet) - they have worked hard to produce what you are enjoying to listen, and are well worth your $0.99 on iTunes :)
