Brian and Vi managed to squeeze two wedding ceremonies into one day. It also seemed like they wrapped up a lifetime of fun into a single window of less than 24 hours. This is a couple who live life to the fullest and love spontaneous and joyful times with each other and their family and friends.
We start at Vi’s home, where she was getting ready for the traditional Vietnamese wedding with the help of her bridesmaids and her pet puppy was there to look cute in the photos.
The bride wore designer Jimmy Choo heels, a white ao dai with a lace collar and crystal diamante jewelry. She looked exquisite and graceful in her bridal attire and was also calm and relaxed.
The groom and his side of the bridal party arrived at the house bearing gifts and flowers for the bride. They had to perform some fun games to be permitted inside (which explains the tissue boxes full of ping pong balls strapped to their bottoms).
Once Brian and his side was allowed inside, the bride’s mother fetched her from upstairs and she was able to join Brian and accept the bouquet of roses. After the traditional tea ceremony, there was time for some formal photos before going to the church.
The Holy Family Church in Hamilton is a beautiful Vietnamese and English Roman Catholic church with stained glass windows and ornate gold architectural features. Any Vietnamese wedding photographer Toronto will tell you the light in this church is lovely and the building is wonderful for wedding photography.
The ceremony was moving and meaningful as the couple was joined together as a married couple by the church minister.
We took charming outdoors bridal portraits of the couple who were overjoyed by all the wedding celebrations so far. They weren’t tired at all and had so much energy to walk to a rustic bridge we had spotted that was perfect for photos – such a scenic spot with a small brook running through the field.
The wedding reception at Fontana Primavera was a soft, glamourous and romantic setting with a huge flower wall for a photo backdrop and an even bigger dance floor to hold all the movers and groovers. A colossal neon LOVE sign was a fun addition to the decor.
Floating candles in tall glass holders and pink floral dinner menus completed the dreamy dinner setup. On display was the multi-tiered wedding cake adorned with pink and white flowers.
It was a fun night of dining, games, dancing and fun. The big surprise of the night was when a giant robot with neon lights hit the dance floor to get the party started. Who does that? Cool people like Brian and Vi. We told you they were fun and spontaneous. Even we never saw this coming!
