The season finale of one of my favourite shows Grey’s Anatomy aired this week with an (almost) wedding of characters Cristina and Burke.
Cristina has played the anti-bride in this couple. She’s struggled to become a ‘bride’ even with Burke’s pushing. This of course leads to everything falling apart in a way that only TV land can do!
The Ceremony Set Up
But onto the details –
Cristina (played by the gorgeous Sandra Oh) wore a $6,600 Amsale Aberra designed strapless mermaid gown and a gorgeous necklace (which was a Burke family tradition)
Bridesmaids Meredith, Izzie and Callie wore different chocolate gowns.
I love the bouquets..
One of my favourite parts (which we didn’t get to see in the church but in an operating theatre!) were Burke’s vows….
Cristina, I could promise to hold you, and to cherish you. I could promise to be there in sickness and in health. I could say till death do us part. But I won’t. Those vows are for optimistic couples, the ones full of hope. And I do not stand here on my wedding day, optimistic or full of hope. I am not optimistic. I am not hopeful. I am sure. I am steady. And I know. I am a heart man. I take them apart. I put them back together. I hold them in my hands. I … am a heart man. So this, I am sure, you are my partner, my lover, my very best friend. My heart beats for you. And on this day, the day of our wedding, I promise you this. I promise you to lay my heart in the palm of your hands. I promise you … me.
