The day started out very drizzly and rainy, but thankfully everything was being held at the Toll House, so once arrived – everyone could break the ice over the wet trip over here and stay warm n’ dry the entire wedding night. The bride Mika was so extremely beautiful with bright floral bridal kimonos for her girls and herself – perfect for pictures! And the groom was ON SPOT with his posing when his turn came around.

Sometimes it’s really interesting to see how funky the guests get during the reception-dancing side of things. Everyone just lets loose…

It was so hilarious to hear how the guests starting screaming their encouragement and she kept blushing, covering her face, and yelling for him to “Behave!”Mika + David Wedding - STGP00156 Mika + David Wedding - STGP00157 Mika + David Wedding - STGP00158 Mika + David Wedding - STGP00161 Mika + David Wedding - STGP00162 Mika + David Wedding - STGP00163 Mika + David Wedding - STGP00164

As you can tell, the guests were great party fodder; with the garter-toss winner sporting the prize across his forehead all night long.
