Sylvia & Jay – Vietnamese ceremony (Part 1)

Posted by pwp on January 29, 2013

When it’s January, you usually would be quite happy to leave Michigan for a few days in the sun, especially the one in California. Thanks to Sylvia and Jay’s wedding, we got that opportunity! Following the Vietnamese tradition, the day before the “official” wedding at the church, a tea ceremony is held at the bride’s parents’ house. Sylvia wore an amazingly intricate and beautiful dress called Ao Dai. Among a number of symbolic gifts, the groom’ s family brings an actual roasted pig, which will be devoured once the ceremony is over!

Here are some of my favorite moments of the day:
