This is going to be a long post for an extensive wedding celebration. Three celebrations, actually. As a gesture of great respect to their families, Von and Huy took part in three different ceremonies throughout their wedding day. In the morning they had a traditional Vietnamese celebration of gift exchange and Tea Ceremonies at each of the families’ houses. After a brief lunch break, they all headed to St. John the Baptist Catholic Church for a Catholic Ceremony, followed by their evening celebration which was officiated by a close friend and former professor of Huy’s, and allowing the couple to express their own vows at the beautiful Arden Hills Resort. The party then continued in full force once inside the amazing reception hall. The emotional and beautifully designed day was planned and coordinated by Stephanie Teague. Anyway, I assume you didn’t come here for my verbal description of the day. Here are some of my favorite images throughout the day–enjoy!
