A Beautiful Life – Yi + Kevin – The Lighthouse – Chelsea Piers, New York

Sometimes I think I write too much on this blog and maybe I should just let the pictures speak for themselves, eh? But, I find that almost impossible.  Rather than listening to my words this time around, I thought I would share some lyrics.

Have you ever come across a song that you just loved? You know, the one you play on repeat that never gets old? As I was working on Kevin and Yi’s images, this tune kept whispering  in my ear.

“Can we take a little time, back porch in the rocking chair…  Leave the light on I’ll be meeting you out there.

Reminisce every moment passed. All the times we shared. You and I growing old together, we stood and faced the weather.

One thing I know – you are my soul. Gotta Life ahead of us were gonna take it slow. Little things you do- I love about you. Hold you close like the day we met and watch our lives unfold in the sky tonight and the stars will tell our story. No doubt in my mind tonight and I just know there never will be… It’s A Beautiful Life

Sun comes up in the morning, underneath the shade of an oak tree. Colors of the leaves are changing the seasons moving endlessly. Man where did the time go? We got some history. A little bit older now but you still look so good to me

I know you won’t care if I get a little grey hair … sitting out back together resting in our rocking chairs.

Music in the background we got time to share, it’s been so beautiful loving you through all of these years.

One thing I know – you are my soul. Gotta Life ahead of us were gonna take it slow. Little things you do- I love about you. Hold you close like the day we met and watch our life unfold in the sky tonight and the stars will tell our story. No doubt in my mind tonight and I just know there never will be… It’s A Beautiful Life.”

 This was hands down some of the best entertainment I have seen in a while. The excitement in the room was fabulous!

From across the room, in between the china and stemware, Kevin was checking out the rings.

Such great toasts! For those of you that were there , the best line was “Yi Dee” wasn’t it?!

Photo booths never get old to me. People tend to let down their guard and act a bit silly. If you hang around the outside of the booth for a little while, it’s quite a show. Check out the next few characters!

This gentleman totally deserves some props. During the reception he sang along with the band and got everyone on their feet.

Kevin and Yi opted not to do the traditional dances with their folks, but I caught them dancing along with them through out the party at unexpected moments.
