There's something about a rainy wedding day that really does it for us. I mean, you can't argue with the delicate tracery of raindrops caught in the light, the way umbrellas pop up like parachutes as soon as the sky opens up, the intimate moments where everyone huddles together out of the rain, the sky like god's own softbox. Maybe that's why Becky & Walter's love-filled pink-hued winter wedding day was so amazingly cool. Or maybe it was just the honor of witnessing these two: child development all stars who devote their lives to helping kids getting a chance to focus on each other.
This was one for the highlight reel. From the suites of the lovely Dinah's Garden Hotel, where both bride and groom and their attendants got ready, and Walter & Becky shared one of the most adorable heartfelt first looks I've ever witnessed as well as a gorgeous traditional Chinese tea ceremony; to Valley Presbyterian Church, which provided a beautiful rainy redwood backdrop for their vows; to a raucuous reception at Dynasty Chinese Seafood Restaurant highlighted by an unforgettable entrance (to The Lonely Island's classic On A Boat) and the groom busting out some legit breakdancing on a fog-filled dance floor; you really don't get much better than this.
In the speech that the best man gave at the reception, he pointed out that two people who devote their lives to caring for others should always be so lucky as to find partners that care for them just as much. I couldn't agree more. Walter & Becky, I wish you love and happiness in your lives together. You both deserve it.
