Sweetwater Branch Inn Wedding Highlights // Xiaotie + Yan

Yan and Xiaotie were married at the beautiful Sweetwater Branch Inn right here in Gainesville, FL. We were immediately struck by what these two had to say about each other. AND they had an orange and blue themed Gator wedding. How cool is that? (images by Verve Studio)

As you can see, this wasn’t the typical wedding we shot. Yan and Xiaotie actually had two wedding ceremonies on the same day. The first was the prototypical American-style wedding held in the gardens of Sweet Water Branch. Totally beautiful and the officiant, Chad Reed, did an amazing job as usual. Toward the end of the night, there was a traditional Chinese tea ceremony where bride and groom share tea with themselves and serve it to their parents symbolizing their union as one family. We’ve never seen this before but we hope we get the chance to shoot at least a few more in the future–Yan just looked so beautiful in her makeup and dress

Thank you Xiaotie and Yan for choosing GBVideo (and the wonderful folks at Verve Studio) to capture your day!
