I’ve been looking forward to Heather & David’s wedding for months and months! I knew it was going to be a beautiful wedding, and I was right! They were married at BeckenRidge Vineyards in Dallas Oregon, and although it rained almost the entire day, everything was still just perfect, and we had just enough time to do some portraits of the couple in the vineyard before taking cover. These two are just the sweetest couple with love that glows, and I’m so happy I was able to document their day for them. Best wishes to them! (And many thanks to my old friend and coworker, Megan, from many years ago when I lived in NC, for connecting us! It was great seeing you!)
Yay! I have been so excited to share these! I was having some blog issues, but all is back to normal now. It was so much fun photographing Julia and Johnny’s traditional Vietnamese Tea Ceremony/Engagement Party. It’s much like a wedding event, but it marks the official proposal/engagement of the couple with friends and family, and includes many special rituals that were so interesting to photograph! The bridesmaids and brides family waited for the Groom and his groomsmen and family to arrive and then there was a greeting and the groomsmen all presented the bridesmaids with special gifts, including an entire pig on a tray! Then after everyone goes inside and completes introductions, the brides father retrieves her and brings her in to give her to soon to be groom. Johnny presented her with a bouquet and then got down on one knee with a ring to ask for her hand in marriage. It was pretty sweet! They’ll be officially married in a similar sort of ceremony next year and I’m so looking forward to it! Enjoy!
