As a continuation of shooting with Sam from StudioZaza, I joined him as the lovely couple John and Katie celebrated their big day. A vietnamese wedding is full of energy. Family from all over show up to support the bride and groom as they wish them good fortune and bless them with a lifetime of love and joy.
The celebration starts early in the bride’s home as the groom arrives to join a tea ceremony with their parents and the rest of the family. They also present themselves and pray to their ancestral altar. After this, they proceed to the groom’s house and carry out a similar tea ceremony. At this time, lunch is served and everybody gets excited as the church ceremony follows soon after. It was good to eat a little food, as I realized that a long but very exciting day was ahead of me.
The reception was held at the Kim Son restaurant in Houston. And it was the longest wedding I had to shoot yet. It started at 10 am and we left at midnight. But you know what? I felt just as energetic as I did that morning. It was such a great and beautiful event filled with beautiful and very blessed people. What a great celebration! I couldn’t be happier knowing that I was able to capture beautiful photos of John & Katie’s wedding that I’m sure they will love.
