A Marriage of Customs and Culture

I had the privilege of capturing a day of customs with some contemporary touches at the Vietnamese wedding ceremony for Mindy and Louis. The couple lives in the D.C. area but Louis's parents live in the Plaza-Midwood section of Charlotte. Louis has six brothers and a sister who all attended the traditional ceremony at their parents home.
Mindy looked stunning throughout the day as she wore two traditional dresses and later changed to a more modern look at the reception.
The day was split between a traditional morning ceremony and then later moved to the very modern Westin Hotel in uptown Charlotte.
Mindy and Louis are an incredibly gracious couple and it was a total pleasure working with them. Their extended families were also super nice and fun to be around.
What a great day!
