Amanda + Justin's wedding day was unlike any wedding I've ever been a part of. With strong cultural + religious backgrounds, the day consisted of a traditional Vietnamese Tea Ceremony, a Christian ceremony, and then a night filled with dancing + fun. From the moment I met Amanda + Justin for their engagement session last year, I knew the day would be something special and it was that and so much more!
The day began with Amanda + her bridesmaids getting ready for the Tea Ceremony at Coosaw Creek Country Club before making their way to Amanda's parent's home for the ceremony. Amanda slipped into her Ao Dai, which is a traditional Vietnamese wedding dress and it was STUNNING. From the detailing + bright red color, to the head piece, Amanda looked incredible from head to toe. Amanda + Justin's immediate + extended families then began to arrive and packed into the home to introduce themselves to one another, present the bride + groom with gifts, and share their well wishes. The families then celebrated together before going back to the country club for the traditional Christian Ceremony.
One of my favorite moments of the day was watching Justin as Amanda walked down the aisle toward him in her wedding gown. I knew that moment was important to them both and it was beautiful to witness + document for them. Following the ceremony, the newlyweds + their guests headed to Trident Tech for their beautifully designed reception by the ever-so-talented Peper Events and danced the rest of the night away to the upbeat tunes of Steel Toe Stiletto.
It was an honor to be a part of such a beautiful + culturally diverse wedding and it will truly be a day that I will never forget!
