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.
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.
