[Wedding] Sophia & Dave – The Venetian in Garfield, NJ

Despite being a city of 20 million people, the odds of Sophia & Dave ever finding each other while in college 200 miles away from NYC would be a pretty awesome feat by any measure. And despite being members of an Asian community of merely 1 million people in the NYC metropolitan area, the odds that Sophia & Dave would ever cross paths with yours truly would be rather slim as well. So when we learned that our fathers both worked at the same hole-in-the-wall restaurant 35ish years ago – well, that just crazy talk right there :). When we first got Sophia & Dave in front of our cameras for their “Old Shangai” photo shoot at the Metropolitan Building last summer, we knew we were in for a treat. Sophia & Dave recently celebrated their nuptials with a wedding reception at The Venetian in Garfield, NJ. Here’s a peak of their day.
