In this American English Pronunciation video, you’re going to look at photos from our wedding!
A few months ago, David and I made a video where we announced our engagement to you guys.
And you guys were so wonderful! I think at least a thousand people said congratulations
to us, it was really neat. Thank you guys for that. I also had fun making a couple of
videos leading up to the wedding from our wedding venue, where we studied real life
American English. So it was fun to have you guys be a part of the process.
And, I want to share my wedding photos with you in this video, and just, sort of, talk
through the day, and talk about what happened.
>> Um, David, what would you say, what stands out to you the most? About the day? A favorite
memory, maybe? >> I think what stands out the most is just
being there with so many people that are important to us.
>> Mm-hmm. >> And being able to look out and see everybody’s
faces as we were standing up front. >> One thing that we did that was a little
bit different is, we did something called self-uniting, which means that there wasn’t
someone there to perform the ceremony. It was just us. And one of the things that was
really cool about that is that we, we got to stand up and look out at everybody. Usually
in weddings, the couple stands in front and they face forward, and the person who is performing
the wedding is looking out at everybody. And, I didn’t even think about that, but it was
so moving and so powerful… >> Mm-hmm.
>> …to be up there and just look at this sea of people that love you and support you.
It was awesome.
>> A couple of you reached out and asked me if we were registered anywhere because you
wanted to send us a gift. And that was so sweet! We were really touched that anyone
would think to do that. Actually, one person took the initiative to send us a kitchen canister,
which we do use. This was, um, someone in Brazil. Thank you so much for that. But the
answer is yes! If you want to send us a gift, we’ll take it! We, um, we have a ‘honeyfund’
set up, so that friends and family could help us go on our honeymoon. So the link is in
the description below. Actually, you can click on the link and learn more about our honeymoon
and what we’re planning on doing. We’re going to Mexico, and I’ve never been there
before. David’s been, but it’s a first for me. Um, will give us the opportunity to
realize how bad our Spanish skills have gotten. >> Yeah.
>> But, it’s going to be a blast. We’re really looking forward to it. Nine days on
the beach, good food, no computers. It’s going to be great.
>> It’s going to be great. >> So that’s what we’re going to go do
in a couple of weeks. But, let’s get to the most exciting part of this video, which
is the wedding photos which our wonderful photographer took, so here it is: our wedding.
When it came time for our pictures, it was raining. That didn’t stop us from having
a good time, though. We went to a coffee shop where we got a few shots indoors. Then there
was a little break in the rain, so we went outside and got some photos in an interesting
alley next to the coffee shop. Then we went over to the Delaware River, where there’s
a pier under the Ben Franklin bridge, that’s been turned into a park. And we took some
photos out there. This was about an hour or so before sunset. Then we headed to the wedding
venue.
The wedding venue was in an old chocolate factory that’s been converted into a photography
studio, so it was just a big space. And we hung a lot of lanterns. David’s sister and
I and some friends made the flower arrangements. The tables were set up so there were five
really long tables, each that sat 24 people. These are Wilburbuds, the chocolate that used
to be made in this chocolate factory.
So we took some family photos. This is my family, and this is David’s family. Very
different in size. We had a cocktail hour before the ceremony so we had a chance to
catch up with old friends. Of course Tom and his wife Julie were there.
Then it was time to start gathering people in for the ceremony, so all of our friends
and family packed in. It was short, so we didn’t have chairs, we wanted everybody
to be very close and tight. So we exchanged our vows and rings. As is tradition in the
US, we had our first kiss after officially becoming married. And then we decided to celebrate
by singing some hymns. So we passed out hymn sheets, and I led the group in singing. My
brother actually got some video of that, so here it is.
[singing]
Then the ceremony was over and there were lots of hugs. And we signed the marriage license
with our mothers as witnesses. And it was time for dinner and toasts. All four of our
parents gave toasts before dinner. It was really sweet to hear what they had to say.
So we all raised a glass and started in on dinner.
After dinner, two more people gave speeches, David’s friend Mike, and my friend Sara,
who has been in several Rachel’s English videos. They were wonderful speeches that
made us laugh.
Then we pointed out our friend Laura who had been the first person to set us up. And everybody
toasted her.
Then it was time for the first dance. And we quickly called our friends out to the dance
floor to join us. And then the party really began. Everybody came out to dance. Our aunts,
our uncles, our parents. David’s family even did a flash mob, where they did a dance
that they had been working on for months. At first we were a little confused about what
was going on. But once we understood, we thought it was pretty great!
We danced with our parents, and then it was time to cut the cake. Typically at an American wedding,
the bride and groom each feed each other a little bit of cake. Every once in a while,
it gets a little out of hand. Don’t worry, I forgave him. The rest of the night was really
just about being with friends and family. And of course, lots more dancing. And we got
to see our parents party as we’d never seen them before. We had so much fun.
What are weddings like in your country? What did you learn about American culture from
looking at these wedding photos? Let me know in the comments below.
That’s it, and thanks so much for using Rachel’s English.
