This wedding was all about culture and beauty… One of our longest weddings to date, Tony & Hanh managed to honor their cultural traditions while still showcasing their exuberant personalities and zest for life. Friends and family came from throughout the globe for the event, which began with an intimate Vietnamese tea ceremony in the family’s home. We have to confess that we have absolutely no idea what was said during the ceremony, as none of it was in English… But the looks of reverence upon their faces let us know that we were witnessing something sacred. Afterwards the family brought out a roasted pig and feasted on traditional Vietnamese food before we headed to the church for the Catholic mass.
Upon arriving to the church we noticed that a much larger crowd had gathered to celebrate. The 400 people then all followed the couple like ducklings to the reception hall to feast on flaming food (seriously!) and toast the couple repeatedly (we’ve never seen so many toasts!). The lighting in the reception was really unique – it seemed to bathe everything in a warm purple light that even the youngest eyes could recognize as magical. As we were preparing images for this wedding my daughter, who is almost four, spotted one of Tony & Hanh’s first dance and ran across the room screaming “Mommy! LOOK! It’s a princess! A real princess! She’s beautiful!!!” I had to agree… Every last detail of the day was both culturally significant and strikingly beautiful. We are grateful to Tony and Hanh for allowing us to be a part of their wedding celebration and wish them many years of marital bliss!
Oh, and we clearly had a good time too…
