Elaine and Tony, a couple from Taipei, Taiwan travels to their favorite escapade, Bangkok for their once in a lifetime wedding. With the help of Ben & Eric from Chrisman Studios, they created a wedding album vibrant in hues as well as strong in moods and lighting. Soak up in this electric atmosphere of this dynamic city and join them as they eat, travel and dine their way through their destination wedding.
Elaine and Tony were always a unit. They strategized together, they solved problems together, they parented together, and they found moments to tuck themselves away and just giggle together. And most notably, a few times when things got a little stressful, they pulled away from the crowd and just hugged each other tight, and then laughed some more. Their love and strength as a couple was at the heart of everything.
There was a lot going on with a baby in the mix and being in another country. They were trying hard to make sure everything is perfect so their guests are entertained and impressed.
And they were a couple who loves the modernity and unconventional! What’s more modern than to read your vows from a phone? As Elaine read them out, tears streaked down her face. Tony was fast to pull a tissue, wiping it off for her as she glanced up in laughter.
If nothing else, you’ll definitely get a good laugh out of the photos from this wedding reception. As one of the guests mentioned, “This is what Taiwanese people do! We love to drink!”At some weddings, drinking is a means to other things – to get the courage to dance, or to get through a speech. At this party, the point of drinking was to drink.
Drink some more. And then ditch the glasses and drink straight from the bottles. Then use those bottles to pour wine and liquor straight down your friends’ throats. And then find unconventional objects to drink out of or pour on your friends’ faces. The result was silliness, and hilarity, and innocent recklessness.
Bangkok may be known as an adult’s playground, but at a good destination wedding, the playground could just as well be in one room at a hotel, as long as it’s filled with your friends. Thanks again to Elaine and Tony for their hilarious wedding reception!
