We are incredibly blessed and honored to have captured our good friends Kiwi and Lin’s wedding in Martha’s Vineyard. To move from California to New Jersey and leave their family and friends can be difficult for any of us. However, for Kiwi and Lin as long as they were together with their daughter Victoria, they can live anywhere. I’ve known Lin since Junior High. He was known to be the goofy one in our group. That day when he was getting ready for his wedding, I noticed he was nervous.
I also remember when Kiwi was getting out of the car for the first look. Kiwi said, “I don’t know why I’m so nervous, it’s only Lin.” However on that day, it wasn’t only Lin the goofy guy she has known for a long time, it was Lin, soon to be her husband and a father to Victoria.
As we were taking photos of them during the ceremony, Kiwi and Lin looked at each other and it seemed as if it was just the two of them up there and everyone else was invisible. They laughed and cried as they read their vows to each other. They were excited when they exchanged rings, and they were happy to be pronounced man and wife.
During the reception as everyone toasted and danced the whole night. We didn’t see the nervous Lin and Kiwi that we saw earlier that day. Who we saw were the same people—the Lin I knew in Junior High, the funny guy who loves to entertain everyone around him, and his bride, Kiwi, who complements him.
