Jamie & Dao | Beautiful Souls | Terrace 167, Richfield, WI
When we see two souls in love, it just makes us gush and smile. From the moment we met Jamie and Dao for their engagement to their fantastic wedding day, all we could see was how much they loved each other. Arriving at Terrace 167, we found Dao in great spirits, pumped and ready for the day. Jamie finished up her makeup as we laid out all of their beautiful details to photograph. We hung up her elegant wedding dress next to Dao's suit. We couldn't wait to see them both all dressed up and knew that they were anticipating the moment they would see each other for the first time!
We took them outside to the back of the venue for a quick first look. Their expressions were just so cute as Jamie did a twirl for Dao to see. As much as we love hanging out with our bride and groom, we also love hanging out with their bridal party! The intimate friends & family that Jamie and Dao choose were the perfect team to have on their special day! They were easy to photograph, filled with energy (even though it was so cold outside) and so much fun! Everyone smiled, laughed and kept the party going the entire day.
Then it was off to the ceremony. Their church was beautiful. Chee La loves architecture and old buildings, especially Gothic cathedrals and churches. He definitely enjoyed photographing all aspects of the ceremony and church. We caught some loving glances shared between Jamie & Dao as well as cute moments. The way Dao proudly showed off his ring to Jamie after putting them on each other was so darn cute.
After the "I do's", the party officially started and we enjoyed every minute of this awesome night. The speeches were hilarious and heartfelt. The music was top notch and there was even a flash mob choreography! Our favorite part though was definitely the grand march. We haven't seen anything like it and it was definitely one of a kind! I didn't watch much wrestling growing up but Chee La did. As soon as the music started playing, he laughed out loud and clicked away on his camera. Each of the bridal party entered the room to a different wrestlers theme song and we felt like we had front row seats at a WWE match. The crowd was electric. It was amazing to say the least.
The night flew by and before we knew it, it was time for us to pack up and go. We would’ve loved to stay and dance the night away with everyone but being almost 8 month pregnant, I was looking forward to kicking off my shoes and taking a nice long bath. We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding to end our 2021 season. Jamie & Dao, you are two beautiful souls who are now tied together as one. We wish you a lifetime of happiness. Congratulations!
