Pouy + Steve were a young fun couple just waiting to tie the knot and decided to have two weddings in a period of three days!! The first was a Christian ceremony on a Friday at Mira Vista Golf & Country Club in El Cerrito, CA and the second was a traditional Laotian Ceremony at Centre Concord in Concord, CA. The Next Day Edit (NDE) above was filmed on the first day and then shown at the traditional Laotian Ceremony. (if you're wondering the beginning is live footage shot from their engagement, not by us)
Mira Vista Golf & Country Club, El Cerrito, CA - The day kicked off with Pouy doing makeup, hair, and getting ready with her girls in the main country club house, while Steve and his boys roamed around on the greens with golf carts playing ghetto golf (don't ask, money is involved) and then hitting up the driving range before heading back to the country club to get ready for the ceremony.
The ceremony was held outside overlooking the bay and the golf course on a beautiful sunny day. The extended bridal party was close to 20 people and so they came down the aisle in style with unique hand shakes and dances. After the ceremony we had the opportunity to shoot the couple and their bridal parties riding around on the golf carts, singing to Lupe Fiasco "I can't get you out of my head". It was definitely a moment to remember.
The reception was full of friends, family, food and fun! I have to say, I've heard a lot of Best Man speeches, but Steve's Best Man, definitely made us laugh the hardest we have ever laughed before, leaving Steve without a secret in the world. His whole speech was around how he had actually been in a relationship with Steve and that now he was married this was there breakup. And then he choreographed a heartfelt dance expressing himself to Steve with a finale of him sliding on his knees before steve slumped over. The night continued with a lot people getting down and dirty on the dance floor.It was classic!
