Very surprised that all three subjects are in focus at 1.2! I figured it would be too shallow that either the middle person or the two in front would be slightly blurry. Nice shots regardless.

The wrinkles in her dress are from carrying in her purse just before the change.

Too bad. She and your lens go well together, so it's definitely worth a reshoot, IMO.

Haha, good excuse to get back together. Thanks for the suggestion!

I wouldn't have noticed the wrinkles if you hadn't pointed them out. She's lovely in a potato sack dress, I'm sure, although this one fits her so very well!

That's how DOF works w/ increasing subject distance, and what I consider to be a common misconception about the use of extremely wide aperture lenses. I see many people saying "1.2 is useless" and things like that. I'd agree for most close up shots it's way too shallow, but step back a bit and it opens up a whole new world of low light photography (amazing for weddings/receptions). Since the shot you referenced was taken from a bit of distance away, the DoF is still shallow but no longer razor thin like it would have been close up... resulting in enough DoF for all three people in the (lovely) shot.

In the post he pointed out that it was shot around f8-f11.

Where? I'm pretty sure the shot he referenced in this thread is nowhere near f8-11. It's listed here and on Flickr as f1.2... and it's posted here in the f1.2 only thread. I see no explanation where it was shot at a higher f-stop, and it certainly doesn't look to me like it was shot at f8-11.

Definitely not stopped down as far as f/8. Looks close to F/1.2. DoF is by no means razor thin at that sort of camera-subject distance.

Edit: Just checked out with a DoF calculator. At that kind of camera to subject distance, I reckon DoF would be about 10-12 ins. The eyes fall fairly comfortably within that range so it's not surprising that all three are sharp ... especially if the photographer was smart about how he picked his main point of focus.
