1st post of the year 2014. Happy New Year Everyone! Each year, I make the resolution to blog quicker but with a full time job and a toddler who requests your attention all the time, it’s a challenge. Just getting a little bit of time to blog is precious to me.
Hieu and Hung live in the Bay area and booked my services about a year prior to their wedding. They saw my name on photographers’ blog and decided to contact me. Since most of Hung’s family live in Orange County, they decided to have their wedding here. When we first met, I thought they were the nicest, most down to earth couple that I’ve met. Hieu was very organized and knew exactly what she wanted for the wedding, it was such a pleasure working with her. While working their wedding, you can see how their family and friend’s adore them. Hieu and Hung’s wedding marks # 3 of 5 weddings back to back. Excited to have had the chance to work with Lin and Jirsa Photography, they captured the whole wedding beautifully.

Custom made boutonniere for the Groomsmen and bouquet for the Bridesmaids.
The tea ceremony was very traditional. Hieu opted to wear a very traditional Ao Dai instead of a more modern one.
Their awesome ride for the day.
For the Church Ceremony, Hieu and Hung went with a Vietnamese tradition where the bride and groom walk down the aisle together.
Adorable flower girl and ring bearer.
Married!!! Congratulations Hieu and Hung!

Groom’s cake for Hung from his wife, his favorite food is pizza :)
Since Hieu and Hung’s wedding was during the Autumn Festival, their party favor was a moon cake.
Hieu’s sister was the cutest! She’s a Buddhist nun. Very funny and helpful too.
Father Daughter dance. The look on Hieu’s face shows a daughter’s love for her father.

And they lived happily ever after…
