Robbin and Elvina

August 22, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Robbin and Elvina were a super fun couple to work with. We kicked off the rehearsal dinner with an Ab Dive at the venues private beach. The Dive was a success and we all had an amazing dinner fill of Abalone and Sea Urchin. Robbin and his groomsmen, along with others from the wedding party cleaned and prepared the ab to be cooked by the caterers. 

To honor Elvina there was a traditional tea ceremony. Elvina wore a traditional red dress. In their culture, it is said that the deal is not sealed until the families share a cup of tea. It was truly a special moment for the families; a quiet time to share a word or two and wish their blessings upon the couple.

The ceremony was officiated by their good friend. There were lots of jokes to be had. Afterwards we all danced and celebrated to an 80's cover band. Fun was had by all.
