Emeryville Marina Park & Hong Kong East Ocean Restaurant Wedding
Chi and Dan’s wedding at Emeryville Marina Park & Hong Kong East Ocean Restaurant was a perfect celebration of the couple’s love story, surrounded by the nearest and dearest family and friends. From their adorable cat luggage tag wedding favors that symbolized their love for their fur babies, to their “Where in the World am I Sitting” seating chart that placed their guests at tables symbolizing all the various places throughout the world where their relationship had taken them. Add in a beautiful outdoor park right on the water and some amazing Chinese food, and you have a perfect evening to celebrate these two becoming a family of their own!
About the Couple: Chi and Dan reside in the East Bay with their fluffy kitty. Both of them love to travel and eat all the great food the world has to offer. They originally met online and during their first dinner date, Chi asked if Dan wanted to still hang out and keep the night going! She had an instant attraction to him, and the feeling was mutual. Dan mentioned that he loved how down to earth Chi was. And Chi loved that Dan was refreshingly sincere and nice. Fast forward to their proposal! The couple was on an international trip to Japan and Thailand, and Dan knew this would be his perfect chance. The trip had been quite rainy thus far, but it just so happened that they had beautiful clear skies on their visit to the beautiful and secluded beach of Hong Island in Krabi Thailand. It was such a picture-perfect moment by the crystal teal water when Dan got down on one knee, and Chi said yes!
To Chi and Dan: thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your amazing wedding day! I had so much fun with you two, your sweet friends, and your amazing families! Dan, I won’t forget how you absolutely lit up when you say Chi coming down the aisle. Even though you two had seen each other previously during your sweet First Look moment, you still have such a glow in your eyes- like you were seeing her again for the first time! Chi, I won’t forget how incredibly sweet and thoughtful you were to others- on your very own wedding day! It’s clear you were enjoying the day for what it was meant to be- a celebration of your love! I know you both have such a bright, adventurous future ahead of you! Congrats again on becoming husband and wife!

“Corinna exceeded all of our expectations as a wedding photographer. She was a pleasure to work with from the very first meeting to even after our wedding event. Corinna was very organized, really professional, and super fun to work with. She was great at giving tips and guiding us on how to pose during our engagement session and on our wedding day. Also, we were very impressed with her turnaround time on the photos and we loved the shots she captured! We would definitely recommend Corinna to anyone that’s looking for a wedding photographer or any other special life events. You will definitely not regret going with her!!!”
