Yoong Loong & Patricia
The Wedding by Ivan by Ivan
May 2017

They had glasses of champagne in the morning! I cant remember shooting a wedding this festive. Ive shot a lot of beautiful weddings, but Yoong Loong & Patricias wedding reminded me of why I shoot weddings at the first place. 


Most of the weddings are so huge that they must have cost an arm and a leg. However, the brides and the grooms usually forget to enjoy their own wedding. They kept asking whats next, wanting their wedding day to be over soon.  


Yong Loong and Patricia had a small outdoor wedding in Oklahoma. The guests were very expressive. The only thing bigger than their laughter was the bride and the grooms smiles. Everyone enjoyed the wedding.


Their wedding is how weddings are supposed to be. Weddings are not about the party, the dresses, and the makeup. Weddings are about having fun and collecting memorable moments with the people we love. Weddings are supposed to be one of the best days of our lives. 


A little wish for everyone whos about to get married soon: have fun on your wedding.
